air yeezy 2 unveiled 5 Nike Air Yeezy 2   Officially Unveiled

It’s here.

Possibly the most anticipated sequel to any sneaker in the history of the game is Kanye West’s second project with Nike Sportswear. The first Yeezy was introduced in 2009 (hope you remembered that proceeds went to a charity of Kanye’s choice) and has since created an indomitable legend in such a short period of time, causing an increased excitement about the the second Air Yeezy. Built on the Air Tech Challenge II outsole with design inspiration gathered from other classic Cross Training silhouettes, the Air Yeezy 2 draws upon the animalistic appeal with the anaconda-textured leather and reptilian-inspired spikes along the heel, but also serves true function as unnecessary padding was removed and the tongue and collar are both comfortable and breathable. Clearly, the shoe is slimmer and a bit lowered compared to the original Air Yeezy, as it was tailored to fit Kanye’s foot and designed for comfort and movement.

One of the highlight details of the Air  Yeezy 2 is the selection of materials; a luxurious combination of rich leather, rugged ballistic nylon, and soft nubuck complete an awe-inspiring package of high-end feel. The added details refer ancient civilizations, like the emblem of Horus on the tongue, the hieroglyphics that spell out ‘YZY’, and ‘lace-lock’ holes that spell out the Roman numeral ‘II’. The Nike Air Yeezy 2 will release globally on June 9th at select retailers and will be very limited in number, so continue reading for these official detailed images and stay tuned for more updates regarding the release of what is surely one of the best sneaker releases of 2012.

Is that the Kay-Yow breast cancer logo on the inside of tongue on the Black pair of Yeezys? That has no correlation to Donda West's passing does it ? She died from plastic surgery not anything related to breast cancer.... Or am I looking too far into this? I'll stop.

All your gay friends will think you look so cool with these on as your walking up and down the catwalks of Paris fashion week. lol. I do like the glow in the dark sole, and the Nike logo however... but that is all.

Haters everywhere on s.n. today. If i dont like something that means i dont care about and if i think something is ugly i make a point not to look. If its such a ugly overpriced, overhyped shoe why do the haters care?

Compared to the first ones these were concept over actual materials. I feel bad that Kanye had to work within the the barriers of Nike ever pursuit of cost effectiveness to make these. The materials on these look cheap but they used the absolute best combination to create something. When they give you lemons you make lemonade right.

Anybody else find it funny how these super hype beast sneaker bloggers/vloggers who dedicate their life and all their/parents finances to these shoes can't even get a comp'd early pair but washed up celebs like myself get a free pair mailed to them. You would think that should kind of put things into perspective for those lames but it never does, it just feeds their hypebeastIiality

Logo on the tongue is SICK! I hope everyone thinks they are fugly so I can get my hands on these. Pfft, yeah right.

My 2 Cents
My 2 Cents

For me these are not hype, Im the kind of person that loves attention to detail. Id rather spend about $100 more on these than retro Jordans that are not anywhere near the quality of these.

Look dope other than the groves on the heel

KrissKross

Why are people voting down on anything positive people say about this shoe? I think they look great and the quality is fantastic! however I know I won't get a pair because of money and resellers so i'm going to sit here being jealous as fuck.

I'm with you on that..people don't have any type of style so they hate on what they don't know about. Jordans are overrated and they don't break necks like these yeezy's do

beebot

Maybe if you were wearing them whilst being famous and owning a lot of money with which to spend on her. Then yes. You could have your own "Kim Kardashian". I think there is a lot of them to go around too.
