Sneaker News already hit you with the most thorough list of Air Yeezy 2 release spots, but it just got a bit longer now that select Foot Locker House of Hoops locations will release the Air Yeezy 2 as well. No campouts, no release day mayhem (we still remember what happened during All-Star Weekend), but instead a simple online entry form (live now) with the lucky recipients being notified on Friday, June 8th. Winners will be able to purchase the shoes in-store ONLY on Saturday. We’ll list the four House of Hoops locations, but head to Foot Locker Unlocked for complete entry rules.
House of Hoops 34th St. – New York, NY
House of Hoops 125 St. – New York, NY
House of Hoops Beverly Center – Los Angeles, CA
House of Hoops Fashion Show Mall – Las Vegas. NV
kicks like these -i say to myself, if i worked hard at rappin maybe it would pay off to get these shoes. they nice, but the jordan 12s feels like you walkin on airrr
That list doesn't stand correct cause the house of hoops in St Louis is getting them. I know the DM personally. And he said they were in stock
WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND DISGUST: "To all trying, GOOD LUCK, and those plotting, SHAME ON YOU! May your feet fall off and make you irrelevant in the shoe game,...forevvvvvvvvvver!" LOL -"Dat shit Cray"??- hahahahah Lol. Kanye's a FK'N idiot. Fuck Yeezys, Nike, Kanye, ALL HYPEBEASTS, and Shop/Boutiques jacking up the price....oh and FK Kim K, I would! Lol.
NIke and Kanye had a great opportunity to show CHICAGO some serious love with this release considering our Niketown is closed until Sept 20th. How the heII does NY, LA, etc all have more confirmed locations then CHICAGO??? You do your hometown like that, watch how your hometown becomes your road town. First Chief Keef now this...SMH! CHICAGO aint gonna support the GOOD Music summer drop they had planned.
This how it should always be in my option. No animal wild life shit like were fighting over position in line. Now it's all up to chance and luck not brute force. Finally!!
LMAO!!!! This makes me wanna go laugh at all them idiots on line low life idiots lost a whole week of their lives for NOTHING!!!..LOSERS
Agree with unclesam. Only people gettin these are the ones willing to pay way over retail or have connections with what ever store is selling them, or those tired ass celebrities that Nike ships all the limited releases directly to their house.
Man, Nike should just do a proper, general release for these. Lower the price to $200 (cause they sure as fuck aren't costing Nike 250~ to manufacture and deliver, more like 100, tops), make 100k of these, and pump them out on the streets. They´ll sell like crazy, Kanye will make millions, Nike will make millions and everyone except for the Hypebeasts will be happy (cause, you know, it's not cool to have the same shoes as 100000 other people!). I know a lot of people are saying these are ugly, but IMO, these are dope as fuck and everyone should have a shot at getting them instead of just people with no life that camp out for weeks on end, or people that have lots of money/connections.
Only place getting these seems to be NY and LA for the most part. Guess Nike doesn't care about the rest of the states. Only one spot in the entire state of Texas? For real? Out of all the big cities in Texas you only release them in Austin? Shit is stupid.
Wow. Neither one in Chicago is getting them. That's crazy. People been lined up at both locations since the south beach 9s came out last weekend. I should go by and break the bad news lol....naw I'll let the hypes continue to camp. Wanted these but only auctions here in Chicago and I'm not paying 10× retail. And this is kanye city/hometown. Way to Rep your city. NY got 8 spots confirmed and chi-town 2? Hope I see him in the street.
Would love to be able to purchase the air yeezys 2 in any locations in New York City it would be a great birthday present. Thanks Sneakernews
Regardless of this rather strict policy, I absolutely guarantee there will be a hoard of fools camping outside of the House of Hoops locations trying to get their grubby asses inside. I suppose this helps, though... Good luck to everybody who participates!
Ur a dumbass for believing him n putting comment like this...let us all kno how u feel wen u find out he lied to you
They're trying to weed out camp outs and up the hype at the same time! If they make it random, they reduce sneaker-violence (at least riot violence) and the shoes will be in higher demand because of it. If they lowered the price, then every Joe Schmoe would look like Kanye West, and Kanye doesn't want that. If he did, he wouldn't rap about and wear expensive tasteful things to assert that he makes more money in a year than most do in a career. Hype means people will perpetually want a piece of the brand, because the low availability means that the individual is somehow more special (and has a little bit more power) than the person without said object. Nietz
that completely takes out the exclusiveness of the shoe if everybody and their baby mama is rocking them.
It wasn't random that they got released in Austin. Nice Kicks is there and they have an impressive track record when it comes to these releases. But I feel your pain homie. Only one place in the DMV is getting them and it sure ain't the HoH in PG Plaza because they screwed the pooch on that galaxy release.
Couldn't have said it betta I think that's so crazy he says "This is Chi right" but only 2 spots getting em thanks Mr. West.
