Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Pure Platinum’ – Detailed Look
With the original Air Yeezy drop coming and going without any major issues (unless you count the extra cautious consumers who copped theirs in surgical masks to avoid the equally time capsule-worthy bird flu), the most drama-filled release date in Kanye West’s career was back in 2007 when the launch of his album Graduation competed head to head against 50 Cent’s third full-length. After much trash talk leading up to the September 11th showdown, Kanye crushed Curtis, Fiddy was forced to back down from his retirement guarantee and Mr. West has been the brightest star in every building he’s entered since.
The Nike Air Yeezy 2‘s release saga might go down as even more of a rollercoaster ride, this multi-delayed super-collabo now appearing in some of its most revealing images yet as the very photographer who posted them also tweets that Nike has ordered his stock returned. So while we get a supremely detailed look at the ‘Pure Platinum’ Yeezy 2, we’re left wondering when we’ll have a chance to inspect the hidden messages inside the velcro strap and beneath the insoles. It’s crazy to think Nike Sportswear would consider cancelling a release with this much demand, but we all remember what happened with the ‘Galaxy’ Air Foamposite One this February. Let us know what you think about this latest bump in the road to Air Yeezy 2 and stick with Sneaker News to find out if and when these will ever hit retail. Photos: mikeyman14
Nike Air Yeezy 2
Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum
I love these kicks!! And I always been a fan of kanye sucks that a bunch of resellers are going to buy these and I probably won't be able to get my hands on these for no less than $1000
I like em...I will rock theses but I would probably get shot wearing them If you fuks keep hyping them
I dnt get why ud put all tha effort and premium crap into tha shoe but foget to design it it literally looks like an autistic blind pimp designd it and if u like it just 4 hype tell me how a mf with no athletic ability or fashion sence gets to put a price tag like that on junk whoeva waits in line for this just know ur a follower with no life at least wen u wait in line for js ur gettin a work of art with a legend backin it
I like these to be honest. Simple and Clean. I doubt these will RSVP due to the demand, but if i can make these happen, then im gonna cop. More hater equals more chances at a cop..
why are soo called 'Traditionalist Sneakerheads" or Tru Sneakerheads soooo against anything that is not an original retro sneaker? lol r u just gonna live in the past forever and not give anything made beyond 2002 a chance to be popular before u shut it down n call anyone who likes anything thats not retro with OG coloway a Hypebeast? lol sux
will be happy to be able to get a pair..from retail store and not from e-auctions or in general retail thieve stores.....
These may good quality but they're certainly not worth the price, the Yeezy 1 are way better than these. I'd choose a simple pair of Classic Cortez OG Forrest Gump over these.
IDC what ppl say im reselling these if i can get my hands on em (which I wont) you would have to be stupid to not resell these there ugly as hell an u will make a G off selling em so why not
i like em and i just want them in my collection and i agree with the people saying they aren't worth $250 but they are a piece of kick history and later on down the road they could be impossible to find.
They are sick ! ! ! But the thing that pisses me off is that the only way you can pick these up is if you quit your job and camp out or pay way over retail price for them online . Im willing to spend the bread on them but yet not able to get my hands on a pair . its kinda a joke . . . Aint it ? Think im going to start rocking PayLess Joints !!!
You can't hate a person for camping out for these, when most of yall go crazy over the same Jordans being re-re-released.
Easy pass...and I like the shoe but I'm too old to camp out, too broke to spend $250+tax on 1 shoe, and the hysteria that will be surrounding these will be insane.
There is a lot of symbolism represented in this shoe. if you know your history and know what kinda stuff kanye is on "religiously" then you'd know what these represent. Its not just a design.
These look like some of my dads old 1970s gator croc crap......... They can't fade the Galaxy Foams..............
Nike will probably tell the public the release is cancelled, then announce a release one or two days before.
look like some adidas jeremy scott monstrosities. ugly as hell. anyone who thinks these are aesthetically pleasing needs a serious word with themselves.
Proud to be one of the few that A. would never buy these B. think there ugly as sin. C. They look cheep has hell. There $250 before a tax from the Shop your buying from and the states sales tax. AKA a big joke Nike !
This is why releases like this is so hyped up. Posting “more photos” “detailed photos” “closer look” of the same shoe all build hype. & you wonder why every release is madness? Just post pics once or twice and that’s it. Smh
Like someone said the details are nice and the materials used look good, but the overall design is still ugly as all hell. Definite pass, good luck to the people copping tho.
Yeah these are ok a little too much going on and will the nonsense that will come behind these joints are not worth it for me.
Yeah these aren't for me. respect to whom ever can make these work on there feet. Maybe Fred Flinstone. They look like someone skined a dinosaur and made some shoes out of him!
These are looking uglier and uglier with each new pic that leaks..and for $250?? Get the f*ck outta here..
These are sick I like them better than the first design, lol those who saying they will pass are the ones hungry for these kicks facts!!!
Yeezy 1 > Yeezy 2 These look like "The car built for Homer." Not my steez, but good luck to those trying to cop...
sorry guys- but not a fan.I do respect the design and concept as a sneakerhead, just not feel'n these. I like the first Yeezy's better.
but these are cold i just want to see detailed pictures of the black and pink and the mystery third color
Theres a difference man. Jordans have a history behind them what do these have NOTHIN. All these hype beast want them just because some weak ass wannabe rapper rocks them that's it and you know it's true. These will never out last the Jordan legacy. As soon as kanye fades away so will these shoes trust me!
