One of the biggest stories this past week was the rumored release date of the Nike Air Yeezy 2, which is tentatively set to touch down on March 23rd, 2012. However, we still haven’t seen detailed shots of the Air Yeezy 2 until now, and the luxurious materials and design should make these as successful (or maybe more than) the original Nike Air Yeezy. The Black/Pink/Mint colorway features a premium croc-skin material on the upper with a molded heel (possibly Foamposite?) with a rugged nylon material with suede material foxing. On the medial side is a suede midfoot strap housing as well. The midsole features a combination of black and mint green with a translucent mint green outsole (with the construction borrowed from the Air Tech Challenge II). The idiom ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ certainly applies to the Air Yeezy 2 design, as it utilizes similar design formula used in the original. We’ve got a detailed set of images for you below, so take a good look and let us know what you think. via deadstockdon.
Nike Air Yeezy 2
Those r gay just like kanye, theres nuthin unique about them or the first ones,nike will just make anything these days,stick to jays and air forces
the first pair of yeezys were better but c'mon these are still pretty sick ! (and im not a hypebeast faggot) lol
Too much internet hostility lmfaooooo over a pair of shoes. People relax. You like em or you don't simple...me personally.... I hink they're alright. Not better than the ones but I like how they look. I just wanna see the "watermelon" colorway & see if they do Nets(tans) with em since those were my favorite Yeezy 1s People get so wrapped up in their opinions & get so hurt over them. Arguing over opinions was always dumb to me. Just stfu about it.
oh guys cmon why? These shooes are ill!! you probably cannot afford them therefore you keep on hatin... if you dont like em then come up with reasonable posts or get the f***** off!!!!!!! losers..
Iam going to cop just to sell to all you HYPEBEASTING little pussies. Everything that has to do with "limited" you bitch made sneaker beasting pussies jump all over it....LOL. Iam glad, cuz yall can just buy them from me for $2000. LMAOOOOOOOOO.....SMH @ you bitch boys thinking sneakers make you "cool". HAHAHAHAHAAHHHHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHA. Just keep filling my bank account with resell money you HYPEBEAST little sneaker pussies.
I wish they'd drop the all black sample pair instead of these, I know its really just the liner and the mint sole but this colorway is not worth camping days for
i like the new design of the air yeezy 2 i like the transition from the originals to the 2 i will be copping them and i will be rocking them just a much as my original yeezy
too much going on with the croc skin for my taste, but i still like them. the black with the mint green and pink accents is a colorway that just looks fresh and easy to rock. like i said, without the croc skin and a lower retail price...COP.
i dont know why some people are saying the yeezy 1 shits on the yeezy 2 and some say the yeezy 2 shits on the yeezy one. they look pretty damn similar to me besides a few minor tweaks. if u liked the 1st one i dont see how u can hate on the 2's which are damn near identical
If these were general release they would sit on the shelves. They are ugly and overrated in my opinion. But that's just me. Do you.
i like these and not for the hype, i just think theyre super clean, but i honestly like the first ones more
Not feeling the strap on these. Maybe make the strap out of different material and give it a different shape or a better design but overall this shoe is alrite
Great pics, dope shoe! I've thought the AY2 was a dope shoe from the first pics I saw, but these pics just affirm my thoughts. Hopefully I win Karmaloop's contest, otherwise I doubt ill be able to cop a piar for retail
i personally like these better than the 1's. I feel like the 1's have more of an audience, but the scales on the back really makes the shoe for me.
Don't hate me for this but I might just buy these, sell em, and buy the originals which I like more.
Not as good as the originals, but they'll certainly do. For some reason, I feel like Im going to be pissed a few months from now after not being able to get them online lol :/
I mean as a sneakerhead I can actually rock with the shoe but why would I even develop a liking for it when people are gonna camp days and weeks ahead like last year,?!?!... I'd like to cop but knowing it'll be rat race 2012 I'll just admire from a far
There is going to be unwarranted hype over these shoes... however, I do like the fact that they are similar to the originals, I think that signature shoes should carry subtle similarities between them as each new model comes out. Good luck for anybody trying to get a pair when they drop next year...
Im just gonna keep it real.. knowing the hype behind these will be ridculous, If i cop ill prolly end up selling them for the first pair
Says the unemployed who has time to sit outside the store for days just waiting.....good source of income thinking you can do it once every 3 years....idiot.
