air jordan ii 1994 look see sample Air Jordan II 1994 Retro   Look See Sample

1994 was the year in which Nike first saw the merits of bringing back the Air Jordan line in retro form, a decision that would turn into an incredible cash cow as the years progressed. Ironically, one of the models that they did bring back that year has been subsequently phased out of the lineup for the past couple of years-the Air Jordan 2. Shown here is the sneaker in one of the OG Bulls colorways from that year, a look see sample version no less. Continue reading for a better glimpse at this rare pair from the first string of retro Jordans and then grab them yourself from tayperk3 on eBay.

If you’re gonna outfit the Air Yeezy with a custom look, you might as well given it one that Mr. West himself would actually appreciate. We assumed he’d be down with this, a version of the “Solar Red” iteration that slaps on an interpretation of the Givenchy birds of paradise print. As far as we can tell the shoes remain the same otherwise, but the view is unfortunately pretty limited here. Tell us if you like the look down in the comments and then get in touch with Mache for any inquiries as far as custom sneakers are concerned.

There’s a whole generation of youngsters whose style can be described as “Yeezy taught them.”  Kanye West is one of the most influential creatives of his time, so it’s only natural that we’d see his smash hit Nike collab cross over to the youngest sneakerheads.  Beaverton never issued kids’ sizes for the Nike Air Yeezy 2, so custom sneaker craftsman The Shoe Surgeon took care of that and created his own ‘Baby Yeezy 2′.  It looks like a spot-on reproduction for the small footed, right down to the missing Air bubble, so check out the tiny ‘Blink’ Yeezy 2s below and let us know how they compare to all the other associated customs.

August 27th, 2013 by | 1 comment

red yeezy sneakers Red October Nike Air Yeezy 2 Preview

Thus far, the only person known to have the all-red Air Yeezy 2 aka the Red October was Kanye himself. It’s likely that some of his inner circle has their’s already, made evident here as the Red October Yeezy 2 pops up again in the hands of someone not named Kanye.  The most recent news surrounding the shoe wasn’t what we all wanted to hear, as it was discovered that the lucky winners from the Red Yeezy 2 giveaway would receive their fortune as late as February of next year, but that still doesn’t rule out a release in the month of October. We expect the hysteria to only increase as we near the month in question, so let us know if these surpass the Solar Reds and Pure Platinums in your book and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates.

red october yeezy 2 2014 Air Yeezy 2 Red October Winners May Not Receive Sneakers Till 2014

Hot on the heels of the announcement of the Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” winners (Half of them at least), Complex did a little bit of digging to find out when exactly those winners might be receiving their pairs of the highly anticipated Kanye West shoe. The bad news is that those who did win a pair might not be getting them till early 2014, a detail sussed out by the combination of the legal details listed in the contest rules and the contact that winners have had with the company handling the giveaway, Ventura Associates. Of course this has lead to further speculation that the Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” might not even be releasing this year if those contest winners aren’t expected to get theirs till 2014. Head to Complex for the full writeup and stick with Sneaker news for more Air Yeezy 2 release info.
