Would you want a shoe by Kanye West? And would you want it enough to stand in line for it likes some folks are?


 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The new Nike shoe designed by hip-hop
musician Kanye West doesn’t go on sale until Saturday in
Philadelphia — but people are already lining up for it.
    About a dozen people were camping out near the Ubiq (YOO’-bik)
store downtown Thursday morning for a chance to buy the $300 pair
of sneakers. The line is expected to grow over the next day.
    West’s shoe, called the Air Yeezy, is a black-on-black high-top
with pink trim. It’s the second of three Air Yeezy color schemes
being released by Nike. A gray version came out in April; the final
color will be released in June.
    Last year, dozens of self-described “sneakerheads” camped out
for the Nikes designed by Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson, drummer of
the Philadelphia band The Roots.
