The Nike Air Yeezy 2 in all red has been spotted on the feet of Kanye West. The sighting comes from his SNL performance, a set that came at the end of an incredible multi-media promotional weekend for Mr. West. Promising that the all red Nike Air Yeezy 2 would be showing up was baby-moms Kim Kardashian, who Instagrammed a sneak peek at the shoes next to what appears to be an advance copy of his upcoming Yeezus album. Continue reading to see Kanye West on Saturday Night Live in the all-red Nike Air Yeezy 2 and stay tuned for any emerging details on this exciting Air Yeezy colorway.

Well if they release online i'll try and cop if not I'm good I don't camp for shoes got better things to do
Pure HYPE!!! Nike knows that no matter what color they use, as long as the box says "Yeezy" it is guaranteed to sell out! I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to raise the price on these!
Birds of the same feather flock together. Trans: an ugly dude wearing an ugly pair of sneakers who is into an ugly form of entertainment...all ugliness! (I think I just lost my appetite)
But don't get me wrong folks, this dude has a golden heart helped Katrina victims, lashed out Bush for disconcern on Louisianans on national TV.
Freedom of speech and expression is what this dude and I are exercising. Peace.
@zhen_ali night before maybe, call Niketown, see what the ques were like for the other two colourways
@BiscoeTheBoss what's wrong with a red shoe? It's really not just about hype. I love the yeezy design in general and I know there are other like me. Sure there's the people who just want it because it says Yeezy, but it's not fair to attribute all the success and "hype" of Yeezy's to the name alone.
@likwit are you serious or was that sarcasm?
@adidanick or maybe his album release date... :|
anyway don't get your hopes up guys, i wouldn't be surprised if these were released on ebay like the Just DON BHM AJ1 or be a charity shoe like the mags.
@Shad0oo Blood Diamonds indeed
Nawh I'm all the way serious, when these dropped in the Black / Solar Red CW, niggas was camping months in advance, I been checking for these since the sample appeared on the net, I called one of my local sneaker spots n the guy said five guys camped out for a week jus to get the same pair, the owner of the store took them to Ruth Chris and served them there Yeezy's on a platter, so yea I really need these joints so I'd camp a couple of days no prob, #RetailIsTheBestSell bro
I never made it a racial thing, they brought this attention to me, I gave my opinion bout the sneaker, not once did I mention race
Well, if you have that great of a life that you can sit and camp be our guest you're a businessman you must have priorities.....
@likwit hope you bring some wet wipes and extra draws homie
Exactly bro, I love sneakers, I have to priorities, I don't cop everything that drops, this is one I have been looking for, so I will do what I have to in order to secure a pair. I'm not hurting for money, my bills are paid n will be paid before I pick these up, I'm not spending mortgage money on these, and that's what 'your priorities are out of order' meant to me.
@B_JeffTheGod @likwit I don't think it's a problem though. It's like you said though it's all about priorities, if you know your broke forget this release. Move on with life and get your act together. This isn't only a race issue, its everybody's issue no matter what. I wanna try to think of it as a exposure that sneaker collection has gone mainstream which means there should be a call for more production in the future.
Don't get on him? So your life and my life are the same hauh? Shut your ass up, y'all should meet my wife, what she got me to see is I can't get mad or disparage someone else opinion jus bc I feel a certain way bout the situation, y'all are coming at me bc I like a pair of sneaker that I'm willing to camp out for, you don't wait more than two hours so your priorities are better than mine? You sound stupid, I own Motown graphic design business, I can and will get paid as I wait for some $270.00 sneakers, matter fact as I'm waiting I could prob use the money I'm making to cop them, I camp to pay retail why pay over that? Y'all are stupid, stop replying if all y'all are gonna do is bash me for my opinion, the fuck are y'all on SN for anyway apparently y'all checking for these if your in the comments.
@likwit i mean dont get on him if you have the time to spend a couple days waiting inline for shoes then your priorities are kinda messed up. i dont wait more than 2hrs for a pair of shoes, at the end of the day these low quality shits aint worth it.
First off bro you don't know me, jus bc your priorities are fucked up doesn't mean mine are, THIS is the problem wit black people, if you and everyone else worried bout your own shit and not others we'd progress, but you'd rather send a generalized statement which you'd call your 'opinion' but don't know Shit bout the situation or me! No there's not a Need for these sneakers but since your scrutinizing my choice of words...matter fact kill yourself bro I don't have to explain myself to you lol almost got me nigga lol later
@likwit Niggas need to relax with the camping. Nobody NEEDS a pair of shoes as to where they gotta camp dawg this is why black people priorities are all fucked up
