That was quick. Kanye West’s elusive, all-red Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” sold out in 10 minutes on the Nike website on Sunday, after they made the following announcement via Twitter:

The shoes were originally priced at $245. If you didn’t get your hands on the Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers, don’t worry. Just visit eBay, where you can pick up a pair for the going bid of $16 million.
Kanye’s relationship with Nike is a complicated one. They had a not-so-sucessful partnership due to “creative differences,” and Kanye has instead formed an alliance with Adidas.
“I’m still gonna do music but I really do feel honored to have had the chance to blow Yeezy up with Nike and I really appreciate everything they did for me,” the singer said. “I’m not knocking them on the way out or burning no bridges. I just think it’s time.”
