You heard it right – the Nike Air Yeezy 2 is hitting Nikestore. The Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum joints were all spoken for within minutes (probably seconds) when 21 Mercer opened up its Twitter RSVP, but it’s clear now that Nikestore will in fact carry both colorways if you missed out on the Wolf Grey. Quick details: the time and date for the release has not been confirmed, and the only way to find out is by following the Nikestore Twitter account, where they will update all pertinent information. Again, the day and time will not be mentioned in advance. Looks like all hope isn’t lost, so stay tuned to Sneaker News and we’ll keep you on top of all Air Yeezy 2 release information until this Saturday’s official release.
So true bro, I've had my South Beaches 8's when nobody cared (dudes probably ignored them because of the pink laces, LOL) six month after I copped, seen'em on flight club for a grand. LMFAO, I PAID $170. WHITE FLYWIRE ya heard! Good luck on the HYPEBEAST 9's, I don't need them or want them, I got the OG's. SMDH.
fuc*en 21 mercer.... i sent a dm 20 seconds after i got their message but i didnt get shi*, while ppl who did it later got replies from them.... my format was perfect too so they shud have no excuses for this shit
fucken 21 mercer.... i sent a dm 15 seconds after i got their message but i didnt get shit, while ppl who did it later got replies from them.... my format was perfect too so they shud have no excuses for this shit
Ugly as hell if you pay more than a $100 for these your stupid.Hype or No hype Kayne is a sellout in The Chi .New York you can have him like everyone has had his woman.Once you get tired of his Fake A$$ Send him Packing.Known here as the SouthSide Sellout.Back of that shoe looks retarded.If you call yourself a sneakerhead and want these you just as fake as him
I think Nike should just make the shoe less exclusive.. But not so you walk around and see 10 people with them on. I say keep the $250 price and make more shoes. Problem solved.
Finally some true quick strikes, unlike everything they call quick strikes and have a release date 6 months before they come out
Got a pair of each colour way..... very very happy. I will be wearing both all summer long! Going to try online at nikestore.com, and if I get lucky, that pair(s) will be added to my shoe collection and never be sold. I have missed just as many major hyped and limited releases over the past years of collecting as the rest of you; Yeezy 1's, Galaxy Foams, South Beach 8's, the list goes on..... and I finally got my day : ) We all miss many releases, especially in the last 6 months since shit really hit the fan...... but that ONE hyped up, major limited release that we all get once in a blue moon and the feeling of pure excitement and enjoyment it brings is what sneaker collecting is all about. Good luck to all this weekend : )
tried mercer rsvp'd in 11 sec no luck. Had free plain ticket willing to waste. Nikestore better just throw em on there like they did the first ones I was able to get multiple pairs back in 09.
I tried to get a pair from 21 Mercer and I got raped. A dude physically came to my house and raped me...something is REAL fishy with their RSVP system.
Plus the price of the shoe is out of this world. They are made in Vietnam and their workers are probably getting paid 40 cents an hour. The material acquired is probably so cheap. The cost of the production of the shoe is probably ten bucks. Ridiculous how greedy Nike is being.
i want these man to play ball!!! idk why people wear em to look good i just wanna play basketball with them and some soccer too
Wish nike would see all of these post and understand that real sneaker heads are getting shut out!! The whole twitter thing was a joke, I'm starting a anti-nike website in constuction now! I will get all of these people stopping us from collection our shoes!!!!
Does anyone know of anybody that got either pair on 21 mercer rsvp.....i also found it weird that they keep adding and dropping people that they fallowed (very sketchy). it made me feel like they were fallowing people so they could send the DM while no one else could
That release was such a joke!!! People that responded to the tweet right away did not get their shoes but people that responded 5min after those guys got their conformation... smh Nike this needs to change.
In all honesty, what is the point of creating limited sneakers? The hype is ridiculous. I'm just getting a pair because I actually like the design of the Yeezy II's. I am a sneakerhead and all I'm interested in is getting a pair of nice, clean sneakers. The hype is so unnecessary and brings unnecessary commotion. Just create more pairs and we won't have a problem. I don't care about 'rarity.'
Understand how the internet works kiddies....If you have a superfast connection you can get in/hack/order faster than other people. Even if you send a message at 12:17 that doesn't mean it was processed at the time. Think of it as a mailbox. You put in the mailbox at 1pm so yes it was sent, but that doesn't mean it arrived when you sent it out.
beats out camping as well as this whole twitter rsvp bs...doubt the server is gonna hold up tho, especially for these
My only hope... I don't wanna pay resellers price... I really like the shoe.. Not gonna sell it like others SMH
i feel like they do inside job selling of the sneakers at mercer and put a lil extra cash in their pockets , because the same thing happened with the raffle for the yeezy 1 me and about 20 ppl i was there with came back the next day and none of us got a call on the rsvp , and now this twitter rsvp , i sent a dm at 12:17 and didn't get a confirmation , but yet someone sent a dm at 12:21 did .. and a kid from houston TX did ,,, sketchy bullish!t don't u think
I understand completely what your saying, but honestly we can make these as non limited as possible..their will still be pandemonium..there is not supply to meet demand without their being serious violence. ?Which is why their is raffles to help stop the violence.
It's only people who did it on the 21st minute to match 21mercer who got them. I saw that for the platinums and told my friend about it and we were both planning on waiting for 4:21 (for the blacks) and I decided it might be too late and did it early. My friend took my advice, waited to 4:21, and got confirmation for his yeezys. I need to take my own advice. Worst decision I've ever made.
Of course there will still be pandemonium, but the production of more sneakers will most likely lead to less pandemonium. If you take a pair of simple white air max 90's for example.. they're a nice shoe and the production meets the needs of the demands, therefore there is less hype.
My DMs went through for platinum at 12:18 and no confirmation... Did much better on the Black same minute of the tweet I DM at 4:16 and and absolutely nothing.
I checked the timestamps and I sent my DM to Mercer 2 seconds flat after they started accepting DM's. I got no confirmation......
