Browsing the "Air Yeezy" Category

The Air Yeezy is a collaborative sneaker created by the team up of rapper/producer Kanye West and Nike. To date there are two separate versions of the Nike Air Yeezy, with the first releasing in 2009 and the Nike Air Yeezy 2 releasing in 2012. Each colorway has been met with wild anticipation, massive lineups, and eventual sellout success.

For a number of years, Nathan Van Hook has forged quite a reputation at Nike as a true innovator in the lifestyle category of footwear. As Senior Designer for Nike Sportswear, Van Hook has penned a number of greats, with the Air Yeezy 2 undoubtedly capturing that magnum opus title. As the new Athletic Training Footwear Design Director, Nathan should most certainly add an extra layer of style to training sneakers,  and with the newly launched Flyknit Hyperfeel Trainer, you can already see that his influence has the potential to lift the aesthetic flair of the genre. Stay tuned for the latest on this internal repositioning because the Training category is one to keep an eye on.

SXSW is one of those events that brings out interesting sneaker moments every year, and Complex has compiled a list of some of the most recent celebrity sneaker sightings. The list includes everything from 50 Cent wearing the “Galaxy” Foamposite One shortly after they released, to Kanye wearing a promo sample pair of the “Zen Grey” Nike Air Yeezy right as the excitement surrounding that shoe was at its highest.

From Campouts to Photo Verification: How Nike Changed Sneaker Releases Forever

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. It could only last for so long though, and as the 2000s progressed, lines continued to get longer and episodes of sneaker mayhem at major releases seemed less and less like isolated events. A change had to be made, and it was industry leader Nike that decided to put the much-needed change into place.

Every Unreleased Yeezy and the True Stories Behind Them

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?

Nike Air Yeezy Sample – Black – White

February 23rd, 2014 by | 12 comments

nike air yeezy black glow sample Nike Air Yeezy Sample   Black   White

If you have some “Range Rovers with low mileage” on deck, and would rather have a pair of limited Yeezys, today is your lucky day. We have seen a few Yeezy samples hit eBay before, but it is exceptionally rare to see a pair that is in deadstock condition like these are. This “Look-See” colorway features a basic all black colorway with only a glow in the dark outsole and swoosh (which interestingly glow in different colors) serving as accents. If you are considering making an offer on these, you should know that contrary to what the description says, these are not 1-of-1 samples (there are a few other pairs in existence) and while these are extremely valuable and quite a find to say the least, the “$150,000″ current value listed in the description may be more of an opinion than anything. Let us know how you feel about these in the comments and pick these up today from newyorkcompany on eBay.
