No disrespect to the Nike Air Yeezy 2, but it looks like it won’t take the crown as the Number 1 sneaker of 2011. That honor will go to the Nike Mag 2011, but the Air Yeezy 2 was certainly a strong frontrunner to capture the annual crown. Here’s another closer look at the Nike Air Yeezy 2 that Kanye West wore during the 2011 MTV VMAs; these clearer shots give you a better idea of the overall construction of the shoe, which features a slightly lower cut, completely different tooling, and a stylized panel on the medial midfoot strap.
