Nike Air Yeezy 2 Logo
Next to last year’s Nike Mag 2011 release, the Air Yeezy 2 has been Nike’s best kept sneaker secrets in quite a long span of time. The looming release has been approached with a level of nervousness from both the community of consumers as well as the retailers and Nike itself; just how much mayhem could possibly surround the most stirring releases of 2012? Continuing the unfolding story of the Air Yeezy 2, we stumbled upon some interesting new information regarding the logo spotted on the Air Yeezy 2; based on the findings of NT member youbigdummy, the new logo appears to be inspired by the Bird Gods of Ancient Egypt, which runs consistent to Kanye’s personal interest/infatuation with Egyptian deities and their versatility as iconic symbols in fashion.
You might even recollect Kanye’s mind-boggling 24K gold Horus chain and pyramid rings during his appearance at the 2010 BET Awards, which generated a ton of interest from various pop-culture blogs worldwide; the chain worn around his neck represented the Bird God known as Horus, who is recognized as the God of War and the God of the Sky, so Kanye’s intense affinity to such a powerful icon could, quite frankly, be very well understood. With such a profound sense and conceptualization of fashion, it’s very clear that a lot of thought has gone into the Air Yeezy 2 design, and his demand for perfection is likely one reason why the Air Yeezy 2 never seemed to find the right time for a release – until now.

Get your historical data correct...Horus is not the god of sky or war. #untrue Actually Horus would be the Egyptian equivalent to Jesus...really tho. Horus is birthed from Osirus and Isis thru a immaculate conception. This story of Osiris, Isis, Horus the oldest recorded evidence of a immaculate conception pre-dating Christianity. The true meaning makes more sense then the"sky/war god" explanation, especially with Yeezy's narcissistic King of Pop tendencies.
i dont c what the big deal is. i dont even like how these show look. AND 4 $250. get the f&^k outta here. Kanye can kick rocks.
illuminati propaganda, head of horus w pyramid in the back. Is it a coincidence that these things show up everywhere nowadays?
i'm pretty sure this is what it's referencing, although i don't understand kanye's connection to horus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horus
Its not the F u c k i n g rappers that are in the "illuminati"!!! its the SYMBOLISM and the AGENDA they promote! All you R e t a r d s talking about read a book, you need to follow your advice! They are real! And its the dumb f u ck s who think they arent that will suffer! wake the fu c k up!
Treated.. Word, cats are getting all their sneaker news from... Sneakernews and assorted sites, that just spread rumours and such. I try to speak to people that actually know sh@t.
PREACH! Only sheep can be made to believe that Egyptian culture is evil. Pretty sad if you have African descendants (which is everyone in this forum black, white, asian, latino) and your running around posting in forums "ILLUMINATI" READ A FREAKIN BOOK! Study REAL history and not bullshit conspiracy theories. Praying to a blond haired blue eyed Jesus like a lost fool.
The second version of the birth narrative of Horus. Goes to tell us Isis as Horus mother is not a virgin, but the widow of Osiris. Later on Isis practices magic to bring back Osiris from the dead to birth a son that will avenge his father's death. So Isis becomes pregnant with the sperm of her dead husband, which gives birth to Horus. This is just another example how gullible people are to fall for dumb comparisons. None of the pagan stories are the same as Jesus. Really brush up on your history. -_-
Actually, Horus is not the Egyptian equivalent to Jesus. Sorry, but really brush up on your history. There are two separate birth accounts of Horus, both don't depict a virgin birth. The first is the mistress of the goddess, Hathor of Thebes, who is the motherly personification of the milky way, She is said to have Horus, but we're told her husband, Ra, is an Egyptian sun god. So Hathor, who's a sky goddess, who's represented by the cow whose milk brought forth the milky way. IS able by the will of her husband Ra is able to birth Horus. LOL, you call that a virgin birth?
you stupid fcuk Horus is the son of Isis(Jesus reference) but is also considered god of war and sky (sun god aka "hathor")
He fired a driver that didn't get him his food fast enough when dude got stuck in traffic and there was nothing he could do. He's a real saint... -___-
your a fuking idiot the industry(rich white "elitist") are "Illuminati" maybe jay also . these niggers are nobody
if your saying Jesus was black than so was Cleopatra. Jesus was middle eastern like the rest of us real jews
all I'm saying is this....its a lot of symbolism, slogans and images associated with secret societies and it seems like Hov and Kanye seem to use these things an awful lot...and this is the thing about it....I felt how u felt about a yr and a half ago....until I did some research and really watched these guys' movements....not saying that's what it is but it's hard to say it's anything else.
...only to the Greeks/Romans. Ausar X Aset X Heru "Royal Trinity" of Kmt...Hathor or Het-Heru would be the wife of Heru. "if wisdom were a tool u'd get blasted!"
