In the world of sneakers today there seem to be two classes of enthusiasts: the quick and the dead. Well if you were one of the lucky few “quick” folks baffled by the non-release of the Net/Net Air Yeezy on Friday night, you were certainly online refreshing like a madman last night. Friday night “funny” things occurred on the mysterious link that circulated forums, Zen Grey Yeezys appeared as “out of stock” and rumors that Black/Black Yeezys became available for a few moments coarsed through the internet like a hit of morphine, leaving forum dwellers in a daze: to believe or not believe. Well believe it folks, Friday night Black/Black Yeezys became available and some lucky few with triggers fingers itchier than Dirty Harry copped instantly. But wait, the madness doesn’t stop there! How many people knew that yesterday was Kanye West’s birthday? If you knew that little fan-fact, then you could also assume that Nike had one last trick up their sleeve! Yes indeed Nike seldom dissapoints but always seems to issue disinformation. Although their customer support center denied the release of the Net/Net colorway on NikeStore.com at precisely 10:30 PM PST last night, right about the time Kanye probably began celebrating his super-celebrity born date, the Net/Net Air Yeezys made their appearance on NikeStore. No word on just how many released. But after looking back at the fiasco one thing is for certain: Nike will ALWAYS be sneaky.
Were you lucky enough to grab a pair off Nikestore?
