Air Yeezy 2 T-Shirt Priced at $90K on eBay

Wil Fry T-Shirt Kanye West Air Yeezy 2

Sneakerheads lost their minds last month after news of the Air Yeezy 2’s hit laptop screens and eBay. Capitalizing on the frenzy is NYC based, Australian artist and graphic designer Wil Fry who hit the clone stamp in Illustrator to create a T-shirt based off the patterns of Kanye’s killer kick for Nike. Titled “Limited T Shirt” (there’s only one), the grey and white tee will run you $90,300, the same fee the Yeezy 2’s racked up after being sold on eBay.

The shirt is, of course, silly and is a commentary on high fashion and consumption; but if someone can pay up to a year’s worth of an Ivy League education for leather and rubber, why not cotton?

This isn’t the first time Fry has done this either. He’s best known for making T-shirts on T-shirts using high end fashion labels like Givenchy and Marc Jacobs. In fact, Fry’s $689 Marc Jacobs T-shirt, based off of the damage Kidult caused after the artist defaced the tattooed designer’s store with the word “ART” in SoHo in May, sold out. Ditto “Expensive T-Shirt,” which had random tags from high-fashion brands like Chanel, Comme des Garcons, Dior, and Jil Sander. It was hawked for $30 on his website and also sold out.

When asked by ArtInfo if there were any offers for the shirt on eBay, Fry said this: “The last time I looked on eBay there were two offers, but they were both under $100. I’m not really expecting anyone to pay the full price.”

And are you going to make any more of the Air Yeezy shirts?

No, this will be the only one.
