The silent auction kicked off at 7 p.m. with initial bids of $400.
More than 150 sneaker fans could bid in increments of $100 and only for an hour. In less than 10 minutes, a size 101/2 in gray complete with West’s signature glow-in-the-dark soles already had reached $1400.
Shoe collector Bill Piotrowski traveled from Yorkville to get his feet into the Yeezy2. But this collector doesn’t put his acquisitions on the shelf.
