PIC: You Won’t Believe Why People Plan To Queue Outside Brown Thomas Overnight
Kanye fans are already queueing overnight outside Brown Thomas on Grafton Street this evening, hoping to land one of the 25 pairs of Yeezy Boost 350 Black runners on sale from tomorrow.
The landmark luxury store announced earlier this week that the second shoe would be hitting shelves at 9am tomorrow morning… and it seems some eager shoppers plan on taking no chances on owning a pair.
Sean Earley was walking through the capital’s main shopping street this evening when he noted a queue had already started for the Kanye countdown, and it was wrapped around the corner with dedicated shoppers:

The shoe is the second model from the Adidas Originals and Kanye West collaboration. Retailer Brown Thomas said of the drop: "The limited release trainer is exquisitely designed featuring beautiful yet simple materials. Primeknit, premium leathers and a full length BOOSTTM midsole are combined into a moccasin style construction that transcends current trainer trends." Brown Thomas Fashion Director Shelly Corkery commented: "The first Yeezy Boost 350 sold out within hours when they launched in June with a queue of customers outside BT2 before it opened. We have a limited number of the trainers available and we’re expecting the same sell-out response with the new, sleek black version."
