Nike’s much-anticipated Air Yeezy II isn’t coming out until Saturday, but sneaker-heads across the globe are already lining up for them.Some are camping out so that they can get their hands on one of the most hyped-up sneakers ever.

But others are doing it for a different reason: money.

The shoes retail at $250, but they’re going for $3,000 (and more) on eBay. A four-figure profit might be worth sitting outside for a week.

Crazy? Or smart?
