It would come as no surprise to see limited testing before the roll-out. Stand by for your feed looking busy.

Two things stand out about the sneakers pictured above in a screenshot from Twitter. First, their list price is a cool $170 million (though we imagine that’s a glitch).

Second, there’s a “Buy now” button included in the tweet.
