kanye west sneaker history 10 A History of Kanye Wests Sneaker Collabs

Today marks the ten-year anniversary of the release of The College Droupout, the debut album from Kanye West that would be a precursor to a decade of dominance from the Chicago rapper. Yes, his name was known prior thanks to the stray mixtapes and production credits, but it was Dropout that introduced Kanye the character; the multifaceted music man who was equal parts brilliant and boisterous. As he’s been prone to reminding the general public of late, Kanye’s aims have always been broader than just music. The sneaker world in particular has felt his force-from that obscure Nike Air 180 that wore his bear logo to the frenzy of yesterday’s surprise Red October release.

After some not-so-subtle comments were dropped by Kanye West during a string of late 2013 tour dates and interviews, it became very evident that there was trouble in paradise and the relationship between him and Nike was on the rocks at best. After revealing on a Philadelphia radio show that he had signed a deal with a major brand, the rumors immediately began to swirl that West would be leaving the Swoosh for the Three Stripes. It didn’t take long from there for the adidas partnership to be officially confirmed – an announcement that sent shockwaves through the sneaker landscape and raised all sorts of questions over what would become of the feverishly anticipated “Red October” Air Yeezy 2.

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.
