THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBERS
Many thought that the alleged third Yeezy 2 colorway was nothing more than wishful thinking, but things started getting real in October of 2012. It was just a few months after the first two Yeezy 2 colorways dropped when Nike Sportswear’s Gentry Humphrey replied to a Twitter inquiry about a third colorway by stating that “things are still in the works”. This provided the much-desired
seed of hope that so many were praying for and the theories began to fly with reckless abandon after that, but it was almost six months later before the next piece of the puzzle arrived. In early April, the first images of a tonal red Yeezy 2 popped up to reignite the discussion, but at the time it was still unclear if this would actually be the third colorway to release.
