One sneaker we’ve all been looking forward to is the Nike Air Yeezy 2, the follow-up to undoubtedly one of the most popular shoes of the past decade and certifiably a historically significant sneaker in the storied Nike catalog. It’s not a performance shoe nor did it feature any new state-of-the-art Nike tech engineering, but it’s their first signature shoe released for a non-athlete. Sneaker News gave you a first look at the Air Yeezy 2, which was first seen in the The Black Mamba short film, and we gave you a second helping of it when Kanye wore them during his performance at Coachella 2011. That Black/White/Mint Green colorway – should it release – will be a definite hit, but here’s a look at an apparent sample of the Black/Pink colorway of the Air Yeezy 2 spotted by Deftronic in an excerpt of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ Documentary. The video has since been taken off YouTube, so check out a closer look at the Air Yeezy 2 in the never-before-seen Black/Pink colorway after the jump, and stick with Sneaker News for all your Nike Air Yeezy 2 updates.
