Sneakerheads have been circle around the Air Yeezy 2 like a pack of hungry sharks, so in anticipation of this June 2012 release, we’ll do our best to keep you covered with all the details in order to keep you in tip-top shape on the day of the release. Here we have a look at some new details on the Air Yeezy 2, like the box-tag, insole detail, and glow-in-the-dark outsole. The Air Yeezy 2 in the Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum (information that Sneaker News unveiled) will officially be labeled as Air Yeezy 2 NRG (falling along the lines of other ‘Glow-in-the-Dark’ NSW releases), and the insole will featured a pressed mold of the Horus logo seen on the tongue. Also, like the original Air Yeezy, the Yeezy 2 will feature the ‘glow’ treatment on the outsoles. Keep these details in mind and we’ll keep you in tune with all the Air Yeezy 2 developments as they unfold. via mikeyman14

let me start buy saying the first pair def had more appeal to em but these shoes are not ugly they have more individuality and look very detailed as to where the first pair looked more like a lot of previous sneakers mixed into 1 and we all know which ones im talking bout and they look comfortable as hell all this hypebeast this n that either u can swagg em or u cant lets be honest
So ugly..what a wack ass hypebeast shoe. Be laughing at the fools who like these but not the "son of mars"...what a joke! Just like kanyes clown ass..
Honestly a lot of shoes lately have not been catching my eye. But I just want these shoes SOOOOO BADLY. I wear a lot of skinny jeans so they would fit my style and the attention to detail on these is amazing. If only they werent so hard to ge t :(
Just wait hypebeasts and non-sneakerheads will call these Weezy 2's once Little Wayne wears them everywhere
I am willing to bet that if Nike were to release these as a general release with no attachment to Kanye West whatsoever and just gave them some random name and priced them at 100 bucks they would sit on the shelves.
let some more hype begin...again. sneaker news u honestly r ODEEing these haha! best sneaker website hands down though <3
Have to admit... not the biggest fan of the Yeezys. I feel like the first shoe was way better but good luck to everyone trying to cop... This may be the most hyped release of the year... at least until the bred 11s.
No Chance of me Getting These.... Plus Probly 9/10 of the People that are getting them are flipping for 2 stacks.
YOU GUYS! 250 mm!!! SECRETS OF THE YEEZY! Remember the Mitchell Report? I want to see the Kanye Report on all the secrets "included" in the shoe. Like, if they messed up a stitch in the original pattern, maybe it's symbolic of Kanye making career mistakes, like leather pants under a leather kilt, or when he upstaged that country singer girl.
I totally agree with you @TokyoOctopus: These Yeezy's are one of the ugliest designed sneakers of all time. It's synonymous to the ugliest cars ever been produced like the 1970 AMC Gremlins, Pontiac Azteks and the Yugo cars. To add insult to injury, Nike even linked it to an (I assume) uneducated-no college degree, no pedigree Black rap artist Kanye West of the United States of America. It couldn't get anything worse than this awful combination. Surprisingly, these sneakers have the following. Pls do not misinterpret but if we take a close survey to those who are dying to have these, chances are these people are either Blacks or into rap music. But as they say, it's business. For as long Nike makes money then by all means they 'Just Do It"...keep on producing Yeezys. On the other hand, why not make it a General Release...flood the market and this h y p e will naturally die.
LOL i find it stupid when people say that this shoe wouldnt sell without kanyes name on it. compare these to a pair of averge nikes, and the attention to detail and the overall design basically blows a majority of sneakers away with or without kanyes name on it.
The name of the site is "SNEAKERNEWS" the Yeezy 2s are SNEAKERS. I'm assuming you forgot. and you had a choice to click the link or not. you chose to.
Bro you an a$$...that is a shoe size in asia...you people take this symbolism sh!t to serious. Also i have better chance of getting a BJ by Kim Kardashian then getting these joints! lol
please explain to me what makes these so great... how is the overall design changing the face of shoes as we know it... please share with me what makes them so great... what makes me so stupid
if u truly like them...fine but 90 percent of the people that want them only want them because of what they are... because of the status symbol... i just want people to be honest with themselves... come on as far as the colors all u have to do is look at the first ones give me a break... grey and orange...khaki and pink... black and pink...very special
its not a terrible idea at all, arent sneakerheads obsessed nowadays with detail and quality of shoes to the touch ? so whats better than a shoe that has so many different textures and materials on it ?and the colorways ugly ? naw, your just too used to the same old bred colorway jordans put out on every shoe.
well I guess not that many... and maybe for good reason... its a terrible idea... oh and your are right cause no company has ever used a reptile print in shoes before... dont forget to include the ugliest color combos that they can think of... is it really worth 250 and the nightmare its going to be so that people can show them off when they go to the mall... oh and dont forget THEYRE UGLY AS SIN!!!!!
well please explain to me how many typical jordans or nikes you see at your everyday footlocker with an egyptian inspiration, a reptile print upper and a glow in the dark sole, im sure not that many right ?
