red nike sneakers yeezy 1 Are All Red Sneakers A Big Trend for 2014?

All-red sneakers have been a hot commodity since the movement began last summer with the appearance of the infamous ‘Red October’ Yeezy 2.  The coveted ’Legends of the Summer’ Air Jordan collection from that Jay Z/Justin Timberlake tour followed soon after Yeezy’s SNL performance and also remain unreleased to this point in history.  Now coming up in 2014 there’s the Supreme Foamposite pack, the ‘Infrared 23′ Air Jordan 6, the ‘Gym Red’ Jordan 1 Retro High OG we saw earlier this morning, and presumably more pairs to come as the momentum builds and more people want in on this fiery look.  Click in to see four of the finer examples, let us know if you think all-red sneakers will be a major trend in 2014, and stick with Sneaker News for the latest.

The saga of the Red October Yeezy 2 continues. The sneakers were seen on feet of yet another celebrity-this time around it was rapper and noted shoe fanatic Macklemore. Pairs touted by previous people have been called into question authenticity-wise, but Macklemore’s appearance in the sneakers is likely to drum up less doubt given his sneaker chops. Making the moment all the more exciting was when, at the end of the first song during his Times Square performance for New Year’s Eve, he threw the pair out to a couple of lucky audience members below.

Will Nike Ever Release the “Red October” Yeezy 2?

December 25th, 2013 by | 48 comments

red yeezy 2 cancelled Will Nike Ever Release the Red October Yeezy 2?

After the sudden news of a release of the Red October Yeezy 2 this Friday, Foot Locker quickly recanted their statement and tentatively cancelled the release faster than you could bellow “You ain’t got the answers, Sway!” into a microphone. Unless the nationwide chain retailer – the only sneaker store that ever put out any sort of release info for the controversial kicks – pulls another fast one and decides to release them on the December 27th date it originally established, it doesn’t seem like Red Octobers in 2013 are a reality.

What was once the most anticipated release of the year has now become a “just get it over with” scenario, and as Nike continues to wait while Kanye continues to air out his Swoosh-related business on the radio, we’re left to wonder if Nike will choose to scrap it as a whole and do its best to pretend the shoes never existed. However, there are still the lucky few who won free pairs through Kanye’s giveaway, and with fine print reading the shoes won’t arrive until January 2014 the earliest, Nike may just wait until those freebie pairs start making their way out in an effort to minimize the Red October headlines. Kanye-designed sneakers are 100% happening in 2014, however, whether it be the Yeezy or the Yeezi (or whatever name the hip-hop turned designer and adidas has formulated). Your thoughts? Chime in below.

The list of celebrities who have been seen with the “Red October” Yeezy 2 is a pretty short one, and due to the sneakers’ questionable retail arrival, there’s been plenty of reasonable doubt tossed around whenever anyone outside of Kanye’s immediate circle has posted them up.

Continue reading to see more photos of Kevin Hart in Yeezys and let us know in the comments if you think his money was spent wisely, and remember to stay tuned to Sneaker News for info on a possible “Red October” Yeezy 2 release date should that ever actually happen.
