As if the initial comparisons of the dual-strap wielding Nike Flystepper 2K3 to the Air Yeezy 2 weren’t enough, the Swoosh has outfitted the NSW model with an all gym-red look to appease anyone (And by anyone, we mean mostly everybody) that didn’t get their hands on a legitimate pair of the Red Octobers this past year. The shoe takes its cues from a rather popular basketball shoe in the Nike Flight 2K3, a pair that was a LeBron James High School favorite right up to his time in the summer league his rookie season. The inspiration is most notable on the perforated side panels, but the synthetic snakeskin and suede should only add to the Yeezy talk. What do you think? Hit the click and know this pair is available at select FootAction stores.

@qtbigwatts How do they compare to each other?
I have both and the all red joints seem like they are made cheaply honestly. For retail of $95 ($78 military) it's OK. The all black gumbo had the prickly pyramids like the Yezzy red October. The Black gumbo pair materials are way more durable, but these red joints are head turners for real. The Red are very underrated in the shoe community, but regular everyday folks be tripping out and stopping me to see what they are. A lot of folks that don't know think that they are real expensive.
@qtbigwatts Ahhh I see. I have the Gumbo League version, never saw any of the others in person. Haven't had the chance to wear em yet.
Wore mine already! Super fresh... my favorite color is red. I hate that every shoe that's red gets the yeezy comparison! There was all red shoes before the red October
