Vancouver residents line up for days to buy Kanye West shoes

ABOVE: Close to a dozen people are camping outside Vancouver's Holt Renfrew, which will be selling Kanye West's latest limited edition shoes tomorrow. But as Nadia Stewart reports, there's a chance not all of them will be able to buy a pair.

About 15 people have spent more than a day-and-a-half waiting in line in the rain to get their hands on a pair of shoes.

They are waiting outside Vancouver’s Holt Renfrew location, which will be selling Kanye West’s limited edition shoes this morning.

The shoes, called ‘Yeezy Boost 350’, cost about $250 and were designed by West.

Some of the people lining up want to keep the shoes for themselves, while others are hoping to resell them and make a profit.

There are only four stores in Vancouver selling the coveted shoes and lineups have been reported around the world as people wait in anticipation for the release today.
