Queues started around the world

Kanye West has caused a chaotic rush for people trying to get their hands on his Yeezy Boost 350 trainers.

The Adidas shoes - once again on sale in Pirate Black - have been made available at outlets across the world on Friday.

However since there's not enough for everyone to have a pair, it's led to huge queues building outside the shops.

Some lines - in places such as London and Newcastle - started more than 48 hours before the trainers were even available.

The shoes were stocked at a number of outlets, including such places as Foot Locker and Champs.

To try and establish some order, several shops ran raffles or began a registration process to determine who got the chance to buy them.

Those lucky enough to get their hands on a pair will have to part with a pretty penny in the process.

A set costs £149 - and that's if they're bought in the shop.

Those looking to find a bargain on sites such as eBay will be parting with much more as already the shoes are commanding more than £1000.

Earlier this week, a sweater from Kanye's Yeezy X Adidas Originals went on sale for a staggering £1,620.

If the rapper could shift 23,000 of the holey jumpers, he could get himself out of debt without having to turn to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg .

One read: "I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart..."

The dad-of-two has taken to regularly ranting on Twitter

The tweet didn't do much to rouse the sympathy from Pizza Hut, who instead offered Kanye a job at one of their restaurants via Twitter.

The chain joked: "Stop telling everyone you need dough and try kneading some dough. We got your C.V. today. You start at 9am tomorrow."
