One shopper took a screenshot of the now-sold out listing, before taking to Reddit to vent their anger, writing: ‘Not Kim out here selling her Yeezy sandals ✋ I can’t lmao.’
Another chimed in: ‘Selling stuff you’ve gotten for free when you’re already a ‘billionaire’ is so GROSS… I’m lucky enough to get some nice free s**t as part of my job… and even I couldn’t imagine selling it.’
A third said: ‘Still kinda wack to sell stuff to the public that you got for free tho.’
A fourth noted: ‘She didn’t even pay for those,’ while a fourth reasoned: ‘Am I the only one uncomfortable with her selling stuff she didn’t pay for?’
‘They’re billionaires for a reason,’ a final penned.

In October, Kris, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie and Kendall set up Kardashian Kloset, where they recycle their expensive wardrobes and claim to be ‘promoting sustainability’, according to the website.
But the prices have been noted by many as far from justified and often much more expensive than rival sites selling identical items.
Kim has been known to flog a Celine brown python blazer for $3,000, when it was available elsewhere for $380, nearly nine times less.
There’s no mention of any of the proceeds going to charity, despite the family being multi-millionaires, with Kylie said to be the world’s youngest billionaire.

Meanwhile, Kim filed to divorce Kanye last year, citing irreconcilable differences. They were married in 2014 in Florence, Italy.
A judge agreed last month to declare the reality star legally single while other aspects of the couple’s divorce get resolved, including custody of their children.
The reality star discussed being ‘protective’ of her former partner for the sake of their children despite the constant drama during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday.
‘I think that’s just who I am, and I always saw such a good example in my mom and my dad in their relationship,’ Kim said.
‘So I’m always just hopeful and no matter what goes on, it’s the father of my kids. I’ll always be protective, I’ll always be protective. I always want my kids to just see the best of the best.
‘So, I just try to, as hard as it can be sometimes, I do try to ignore it and just try to do whatever’s best for the kids.’
‘Take the high road,’ she added.
