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.

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.

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.
