adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s are Already Selling For More Than $800?!?!

Yesterday, reservations for the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 in "Black/Copper," "Black/Green," and "Black/Red" opened up via the Confirmed app and despite being the first time more than one pair dropped at the same time, they were all gone in minute. Those lucky enough to secure a pair haven't even been able to get them in hand yet as the pick up date is November 23, but that hasn't stopped them from making quick sales. One look at sold listings on eBay shows some pairs going for more than $800 off the strength of a Confirmed app screenshot.
Here's the catch. It appears that Confirmed isn't showing some users what size they got until the day of pick up. The screenshot below shows no indication of the size reserved. Getting your actual size appears to not be definite with the app because of size ranges, a feature that was incorporated to make reservations quicker and easier. Hopefully users of the app are getting their intended size and buyers on eBay are getting what they paid for.

Granted, the demand for Yeezys has always exceeded the supply, but these bid-happy eBayers may have jumped the gun on this one. Keep in mind that all three pairs will be available in stores like Foot Locker, Foot Action and Champs with Sweepstakes entries on their apps as well as on Adidas the day of the release, so there still is a chance to score them for $220..
