Remember that before there was ever talk of a “Red October” Air Yeezy 2, there was that Oreo looking black and white sample that leaked via some internal NSW catalog.

Case in point is this El Cappy creation, which slaps a black and white colorway across the upper and a speckle treatment along the midsole. Get a better idea of the custom color up with us after the break and tell us if you prefer these to the “Red October” version.

The Air Yeezy 2 was a shoe that had its fair share of tweaks from the sample stage to when it finally hit retail. Unfortunately those changes have been tough to pin down, as the best views of the earliest incarnation have so far been random paparazzi shots of Kanye a from a couple years back. Helping us out is GOOD Music signee Cyhi the Prynce, who posted up this image of what he’s calling the “first pair” ever made. In place of the mesh section on the front end is a clean black leather with a perforated texture over the top.
