A teenager was robbed Saturday in a Manhattan shoe deal gone wrong, police said.

The 17-year-old victim met a man at the 42nd St. Times Square subway station to sell a pair of pricey sneakers designed by Kanye West at 12:15 p.m., cops said.

They agreed on $340 for the Adidas Yeezy sneakers, but the 23-year-old buyer-turned-suspect said he only had $300, police sources said.

The suspect told the victim he had to break a $100 bill, and lured him into the subway, where he pulled a gun, snatched the sneakers and his money before he ran off.
