Each colorway has been met with wild anticipation, massive lineups, and eventual sellout success.

Get familiar with this beastly take on Kanye’s first Nike silhouette and then get in touch with JBF Customs with any inquiries.

nike sneaker purchasing process changes 07 From Campouts to Photo Verification: How Nike Changed Sneaker Releases Forever

With every passing year, the hoops that must be jumped through in order to obtain a pair of limited or highly-coveted sneakers are rearranged to reflect the still-growing community of sneakerheads worldwide. At the dawn of the era it was all about the campout; you’d set your chair, sleeping bag, or woodland-grade tent up and play the waiting game for hours, or days, at a time in order to grab that pair of Nike SB Dunks, Air Maxes, or what have you.

unreleased yeezy sneakers Every Unreleased Yeezy and the True Stories Behind Them

With the limited, surprise release of the “Red October” Nike Air Yeezy 2, it would appear that the Air Yeezy legacy has officially ended. Before we move on to focusing on the next big thing, perhaps the Kanye x adidas collaboration, we should take a look back. Sure, some of the colorways of both the Air Yeezy and Air Yeezy 2 are less sought after than others (It is a tad bit easier to get your hands on the Net/Net Yeezys than it is the Black/Pink), but all of them sold out instantly when they released and fetch a high price on eBay. But, what of the Yeezys that never saw that retail push?
