Though the Air Jordan 1s that Jay-Z’s been so fond of wearing lately are the only kicks specifically namechecked on their new new album, it’s Kanye West’s upcoming collaboration with Nike Sportswear that has people quite literally watching the throne in hopes of catching a glimpse at the next big thing. The Nike Air Yeezy 2 is now starting to build up a head of steam as the Jay-and-Ye world tour continues to roll on, this black and pink edition showing up now again while Yeezy rocks the same black leather ensemble, but images from the stage this time are among the clearest we’ve seen of this sneaker sasquatch. It’s clear that the Air Yeezy 2 is more reliant upon textural contrasts than its predecessor, a molded heel somewhere between the Air Jordan II and Hussein Chalayan’s Puma Urban Swift. The tongues also feature a diamond pattern that could perhaps indicate the use of a layered mesh material like Torch — could this indicate that the Air Yeezy 2 will outperform its forebear? We’ll have to wait to wear a pair to find out, but you can get a better sense of what they’ll look like in the meantime, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for updates including the Nike Air Yeezy 2 release date. via DJ Proto J on NT

If I could get a hand on a pair for retail I will, if not w.e they look a lot like the 1s except the material and textures, other then that the shape is the same.
Kanye is such a f@g I hate those Dike @$$ Man B1tch3s no Penis having MF er go kill yourselves kanye= G@Y but them boys is hot
Nothing wrong with Timberland's they're classic, and they were born into that era so it's probably more eye catching to them.
Agreed. I already have all 3 of the Yeezy 1's and these look too close to those. Not tripping either way this goes.
i like how he said all those ignorant remarks about gay ppl and right after he said "but them boys is hot" lmao
So is Elton John. So was Freddie Mercury. Doesnt mean their sexual preferences defined their music. They made classic joints Like Kanye is doing. Whether he is or isnt you idiot, who really cares? Lay off the personal life, focus on the music and the sweet kicks.
