A video uploaded by Facebook user Wyss Wong shows the chaos during the raffle which was held this morning near the fountain area at the entrance of Pavillion KL.

Eager buyers could be seen forcing their way through the security barricade, allowing a sea of people into the raffle registration table, nearly causing a riot.

adidas staff were clearly outnumbered and had a hard time managing the massive crowd.

Ever since West moved from Nike to adidas in 2013, the kicks have been highly coveted by many worldwide. They are known to sell out within seconds upon release and the resell prices could go up to RM4,000 per pair.

Many actually buy the sneakers not to wear them, but to sell them to eager buyers at exorbitant prices.

We hope it was all worth it, guys. Kanye is certainly happy that his sneakers are selling out.
