Recently Sneaker News reported some Air Yeezy 2 release information coming from select sneaker boutiques in Australia, but given the shaky and sensitive nature of the sneaker, the June 9th release date was, to some, ‘tentative’. If you needed some additional signs that the June 9th release is still a ‘go’, perhaps this latest development is a sign that that the Air Yeezy 2 is scheduled to drop on time; a number of celebrities like Fat Joe, Big Tigger, Reg Yates, and DJ Clark Kent received their special VIP pairs in the mail, showing them off for the world to see. It might be rubbing it in our faces, but at least we do know that these are beginning to be seeded out in a timely manner. In addition, Nike Stadium in Paris reported that they will receive both colorways as well. Will you do what it takes to cop the Air Yeezy 2 next Saturday? We’ll keep you up to date regarding a firm list of release locations and guidelines, so feast your eyes on the collection of Air Yeezy 2s below and let us know which of the two colorways you’ll be on the hunt for.
"We’ll keep you up to date regarding a firm list of release locations and guidelines"... Thats the biggest line of bullshit I've heard from sneaker news. They don't tell you about release locations till after the shoe has dropped. Wait and see...
I love how everyone is saying its ugly n it looks like a bird but they r only saying tht cuz they wont be getting a pair smfh
These sneakers were made to resell. Ain't no one actually buying to keep. & if they say they are, they are lying.
The Australian release is still a go. The manager of my local store said he had his pairs in already.
Im gonna try to pick these up but i might as well hang it up because Im not gonna do anything unreasonable to get them (like wait outside for days)
To each his own...easy pass for me. Didn't know Big Tigger and Fat Joe were still considered celebrities.
Idk why everyone's hating on some of the people getting early pairs. They have connects and use them. We'd ALL do the same if we were plugged like them so stop hating on them
Damn u yeezy, how u gon make a ni**a drop 500 plus in 1 day or choose which one i'd rather have. That's way too cold(pun intended)
Joints look so ridiculous and too much is going on. The shoe doesnt flow at all structually wise or on feet. LOL somebody is going to be laughing all the way to the bank after taking you goofies for a stack plus but ehh hype sales.
Crazy Sour Puss's and everyone who liked this comment. First of all Fat was one the orginial celebrity sneakerheads in. And although he may be a lil Lame, Big Tigger and the legacy of the basement will forever live on. (It's okay I didn't get the 12's, i felt the same way. I promise you will get over it! hahaha!)

Fus ro Dah lol. But yea this'll be 1 pair that Ill try to cop just to sell. Goes against my philosophy, but this is different.
thats my plan, im usually strictly against reselling but there's no shame in taking advantage of dumb*** hypebeasts who'll pay 2 stacks for these
I agree with both of you. The hype alone will sell these. The looks dont matter. Sorry but I would have no problem with re selling these joints.
