If the Galaxy Foamposite release was any indication as to how chaotic the release of the Air Yeezy 2 could potentially unfold, we could be in for one of the most chaotic sneaker releases in history. It appears that some sneakerheads want to take no chances at missing out, as campouts for the Nike Air Yeezy 2, confirmed to release on April 13th in the Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum colorway, have already begun out in Los Angeles outside the Beverly Hills House of Hoops. In a video brought to us by Jordan Geller of the ShoeZeum, we’re offered a look into the psyche behind these determined sneakerheads/opportunists that have deemed it worth the near seven-week wait for the shoes. It’s become clear that Nike and House of Hoops need to coordinate on a safer and more efficient method of releasing such high-profile sneakers, but for now, it appears that the campout queue is only getting longer. Check out the video as well as other Air Yeezy 2 campout sightings below and let us know your opinions on this outrageous development.

Since they not gonna waiting in line and they just have the chairs there. I'll fly my ass out there and throw all the fucking chairs and burn them. And get in line first and say fuck hypebeast and sneakerheads unite. Smh and this is only the start. Probably by December they'll be camping for the Bred 11s. Only if they didnt hand out releases dates and pictures so often this wouldnt happen

Bow wow wow
Bow wow wow

Honestly, if it ever comes down to me having to camp for a pair of shoes, the most I'll camp for is 3 days...a month is too far, not to mention no real release date has been set yet -.-

No wonder it's hard to cop GR shoes these days, peeps camping out for 1 month for a pair of sneakers...LAME. What happened to being able to camp out 1 night and having a good shot at getting your kicks...2012 YEAR OF THE HYPEBEATS, DEATH OF THE TRUE SNEAKERHEADS.

Thanks for Vinny from the Jersey Shore for camping out for a month. I'll give you an autograph one day, maybe.

the thing is that the date hasn't even been confirmed by nike... no official pics either...

They're just hoping that HOH Bev or neighboring businesses are going to get tired of seeing their ugly mugs and give them bracelets or tickets. Whats crazy is that some HOH play right into this and the next time it will be two months. No one should buy these for two months. Let all these lame a$$ resellers get caught holding them.

Big Rome

Thats not camping out. Just because you leave a chair doesn't mean sh!#t. Anyone not there in line when I get there will find their chair in a pile. This is why people end up getting blasted. HOH Bev needs to set some regulations. All they have to say is no leaving chairs or better yet no camping until a few days before.

@sneakersXwine
@sneakersXwine

It's reckless, I was told they just showed up out of the blue and wouldn't leave, this isn't even a HOH issued line. I was waiting for the actual call that HOH gives us to camp out but these hypes killed it. Really months in advanced, camp for that shit I'll go to work and just pay aftermarket price

What is the point/ purpose of waiting in line a month in advance if your waiting across the street and don't even have a definite spot in line

I hope the cops sends them home the last week before the release so they can learn a lesson and stop doing that.

I don't know if this has been said or what, but I can't be the only one who things this is a tad bit shady. 40 chairs and only 3 people? Seems odd AF to me. I'm not saying this is fake but something is off. If not that's just stupid.

This has gotten out of hand and is unacceptable, people camping out for 7 weeks??? These people (resellers/hypebeasts) have put the snaeker game on life support. Even general retro releases like the old royal xs and the cement 4s, which used to be an easy cop are hard to get. Not to mention the quality of shoes going downhill while the price goes up. Not to mention nike's use of child labor while other companies such as new balance provide their workers with excellent working conditions and good pay. Im out. Follow @boycott_nike

Wait here's the funny thing Nike hasn't confirm shit! Some blog online gets told that these are releasing the 13th on next month and they believe it and camp out rotfl. Grow up,move out your patents crib,get a Job doing something with your self. Pathetic! When I was younger all it took was a couple hours in the morning to cop a pair of Js. Only Js were to be lined up for. Now it's random shoes. If these were a GR without kanye name no one would go crazy. Smh

Man I remember when going to a release day for a sneaker was enjoyable. Meeting other sneakerheads, and majority of the people getting their size. This is BS!

Wow this is literally going on two pages of troll bashing lol fucken loser with no jobs,,,, but let's look at the facts, in 2009 people campout for the yeezy's one and resale was about 1000 a little over and i predict that these trolls will try to resale them at 2000 to 2500 easy,, watch my subculture! this shit is going to get crazy!! Sneakerheads vs resellers who will win ?

I saw the video about this going on and all I could think was, "Their priorities are all f*cked up."

Anyone that would wait in line a month in advance for a pair of gym shoes has no life and should kill their self. For whatever reason rather to resell or make sure they get a pair its not worth a month of your life. I hope this is a rumor

If you guys read sneaker blogs, go to work. You make at least $80 a day x 20-30 = way more than camping out like a dumb ho.

Seriously?!? People show up, leave a fucking chair, and expect that to hold their place in line? Lol! RIP if I decide, as a real shoe fanatic, that I want a pair and walk up on this. You can bet on the fact that I will throw those chairs into the street and take my place in line. And you can bet the people I show up with will guarantee no one will say anything.

Number 1 these yeezys r hideous. Number 2 you have to be literally crazy to call a sidewalk home for a month.

Things like this makes it hard for me to explain that being a sneaker head is not a bad thing. This makes no sense sitting outside for a month to spend $250 and just brag!? I really want these yeezys but not if this is what they stand for nike needs a challenge they have no big bullies to fight so they are bullying the sneaker community
