Russia: Muscovites camp out in freezing cold for Kanye West's latest sneakers

Over a hundred people gathered outside the Tsvetnoi mall in Moscow, Thursday, braving freezing weather in a bit to be the first to get their hands on American hip hop star Kanye West's brand new Yeezy Boost Pirate Black sneakers.
West's latest Adidas kicks will go on sale on Friday, but many came far beforehand in order to sign their name to the queuing list to secure the designer sneakers.
According to one the shoe-enthusiasts, "about 300 or 400 people came to know" about the shoes sale earlier on Thursday, with "nearly 110 or 115 people" waiting for the shop to open.
Apart from Tsvetnoi mall, the sneakers will go on sale in two other Moscow stores.
