There’s no doubt about it: Drake is currently killing the game. Even Kanye West himself labeled 2013 as “Drake season,” given the Canadian rapper’s firm grip on the pop culture zeitgeist.

Drake copped a few moves from West, including bold forays into the world of high-end sneakers, signing a deal with Nike almost immediately after West jumped ship to Adidas.

The first fruits of Drake’s deal with Nike are an extremely limited run of Air Jordan shoes co-branded with the “Worst Behavior” rapper’s OVO (October’s Very Own) label. Two pairs of the shoes were given away to fans at the recent “Drake Night” rolled out by the NBA’s Toronto Raptors, with one of the pairs already listed on eBay.

While the instantly collectible shoes were initially listed for $300, Miss Info reports that hardcore sneaker freaks have already pushed the bids to nearly $100,000. $99,900, to be exact, with four days left on the auction at press time (Jan. 14).
