Sneaker News readers voted the Nike Air Yeezy 2 as the most anticipated sneaker release of 2012 in our year-end Sneaker News Reader’s Choice Poll, beating out the two blockbuster Air Jordan Retros by significant margins. That notion still remains, but it’s becoming a difficult task to track the progress of the Air Yeezy 2 with Nike keeping such a tight lid on the project. This past Friday, Sneaker News was provided some information regarding a third colorway of the Nike Air Yeezy 2, but it appears that for now, just two colorways will release – the Black/Solar Red, which has been on Kanye’s feet over the last few months, and the Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum, commonly referred to as the ‘Zen Grey’. Another significant piece of information is that the rumored release of March 23rd is looking to be unlikely, with the release rumored to be pushed back to a later date (but not far after). If you want the most up-to-date information regarding the Nike Air Yeezy 2 release, you know where to keep in tuned, so let us know which of the two confirmed colorways you’d prefer to have, and stick with Sneaker News for more updates. Many thanks to Jack for the info.

everyone that knows me i want these so bad, but i don't feel like the headache to get these you know the re-sellers and camping for a week if i see them for a reasonable price later i'll buy but i doubt that'll happen since the 1s are still easily over a grand...thanks sneakernews for hyping these
hONESTLY IM COPPING BECAUSE I MISSED OUT ON THE 1ST YEEZY... NOT TO RESELL LIKE THESE NEW PEOPLE WHO FU5KN UP THE GAME.. SMH.. HATE THE NEW SHOE GAME AND THE HYPE LAMES PUT ON IT!
Nike can make it a quickstrike and still not be as limited as the foams. What they fail to realize is that when they make shoes as limited as the foams that's how people get killed. They should distribute small quantities to all the stores that had the yeezy 1s
man i dont know when they are coming out i want both of them but i dont know where they are coming out in Atlanta Ga walter's said there not having them and i didnt even ask wish yet so let me know something people
The release date for Nike Air Yeezy 2 is changed to sometime in June. As told by the Nike Manager in EU. Source--->(bit . ly / zBhbW0)<---remove spaces.
What these gonna cost me $300 retail and sale out in 10 minutes so I dont have a chance to get a pair? Give me a break with all the hype. That black colorway goes harder than bobby brown back in his hey day when no one thought he was goofy acting or sounding. ..but I know the price on these is gonna be high
yo NIKE, if youre reading this beware. you better make this a SUPER GR because if i dont get these im gonna do some bad things to people who have these shoes. watch out.
i remember wen they first showed pictures of these last year, everyone was commenting how much they hated them and that they looked ugly as hell. Now as the release date approaches, everyones saying how nice they are.... i guess hype does that to people... to me they look alrite, i just don't like how the upper and the toe box look with the all mesh. The heel and ankle of the shoes look pretty fresh tho
Resellers should be sentenced to death ! Watch a lot of us not get Yeezy's the same a lot of us ( including myself) didn't get galaxy foams -_-
Damn they both look nice, i wouldn't want to resell them but at same time thats alot of money in your pocket if you get the chance to.
2 just 2 WTF what happen to 5 man this is just gonna make things more out of hand I really hope if they only doing 2 they make a good amount still limited but enough for most to cop
Didn't cop the first ones, not gunna cop these either, but in my opinion i think these look better.... but thats just me.
I like both of em but I'm not camping out for a week to snag em so unless they are a gr (which I know there not) no use in even getting hyped about these IMO
Pushed the release date back, again. Or maybe its already set, But NIKE keeps "pushing it back" so there is more talk/commotion on the sneakers which makes more HYPE! Im going to buy what I like so the HYPE doesn't bother me. People get upset when they aren't able to get a pair of kicks that are highly sought after or hyped up! Blame the game on "hypebeast" & Resellers. When its really not their fault. Blame yourself, for knowing that the shoe is QS or hard to get, Knowing that people are going to be camped out, & knowing that there are Resellers...
If they were smart, they'd just make it a GR for a short time and be done with it. Don't retro it ever. People are going to get killed if this is a QS
It's a clean sneaker, gold tip laces and very casual. Would these sneakers be over hyped ? Of course but then again its worth the buy if you like Supra's and things like that.
Yo im stationed in the ATL as well dont listen to when stores say "We will not release them".. they all full of crap man.. trust me.. go with your instinct.. hit me up on twitter @1splashyassRico
but it doesnt matter to me because i cant afford these no way. Anything over 5$ is too much for my budget!
I agree. If it isn't a GR, there WILL be a loss of life over these. I can almost guarantee it. Just because people are going to be looking to make a quick buck... Hell, it might happen if it IS a GR. Terrible.
well what i meant to say actually was that, I actually saw these on cnn. I saw these same shoes on a site for like 89.99 and I will be copping them QUICK!!! and CHEAP!!
Yea... i think da yeezy 1s were better, but dat wolf grey & platinum pair is dope... but i.hope people dat want these get them. Ima pass on these
