Winners were announced in mid-August, but it doesn’t appear that any of the lucky giveaway participants have received the shoes yet. Kanye wore the shoes onstage frequently for most of the summer’s Yeezus tour, but aside from his pair, there was still little to no word on when there would be others spreading out into the world. Although all kinds of release rumors were still swirling about, things seemed to quiet down for a bit after that as most of us who have
been following the saga awaited some sort of announcement to be made in October going back to the “Red October” reference that was given obvious credibility by the Kanye co-sign. Despite another wave of occasionally believable rumors, the month yielded nothing solid on the Yeezy front other than an October 14th Instagram pic by Kim that once again made reference to #RedOctobers and fueled the fires for some magic to happen in the remaining weeks.
