Kanye West just may have reached the peak of controversy with his new drill, created for sneakerheads running around looking for Yeezys. The question is, are the Yeezys worth all that trouble.

As we speak, people are lined outside two L.A stores for shipments that won’t arrive until a  week from Friday. This weekend the stores will know how many pairs they'll be sent, which should be around 60.

Immediately the stores are alerted, the manager of each store will hand the first sixty people in line a wristband, which enables them buy a pair for $350 a pair on March 18th. But that's not all.

The people with wristbands are requested to return to the store 3 times a day to check in ... at noon, 4 PM and 8 PM with their ID to show each time. And if they miss as much as one ID check then they're out of the game and the next person in line gets a wristband.

It sounds like a stupid endeavor, but there's an reward. Whoever gets the shoes will almost definitely resell them for $1,000 or possibly even more. However, there's gotta be a better way to earn a living.

What do you think of Kanye’s shoe game?
