Some unlucky shoppers missed out on the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2, with the next batch set to be released on June 22.

It is understood that sales of the black trainer were limited to one pair per person.

Edinburgh Travel tweeted this morning to ask followers if they knew what the queues were in relation to - suggesting they snaked all the way back to the old Vodafone shop.

David added: "People will always miss out.

"The next batch is released on June 22 so I'm sure we'll have similar scenes."
