red air yeezy 2 june 18 yeezus Red Air Yeezy 2 Release Info

The rumblings surrounding the potential release of the red Air Yeezy 2 continue with this latest update that zeroes in on the coinciding June 18th release date of Kanye’s upcoming album Yeezus. While nothing has been directly confirmed by Nike in any way, there was some provocative information and theories that we laid out when we discussed a potential third release of the Yeezy 2 a few weeks back. This latest image reveals something rather straightforward – a June 18th release and what appears to be 1,000 pairs made, although what method of release hasn’t been made clear. Will it be included randomly in copies of his album? That seems to be a popular theory at this point, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates as we near D-Day (or Yeezy-Day) on June 18th.

UPDATE: As we told you before, the potential release information surrounding the Red Air Yeezy 2 has still not been confirmed by Nike or any official sources. Now, Ibn Jasper has stepped up to let us all know that the Red Air Yeezy 2 release date of June 18th is definitely not official at this point, so we’ll just have to wait for the final word to come down from Nike and/or Kanye. Stay tuned for the latest as more info emerges.

What Do You Think?: Red Air Yeezy 2 Release on the Way?

kanye west red yeezy 2 release What Do You Think?: Red Air Yeezy 2 Release on the Way?

Perhaps one of the most painstaking releases in Nike history was the Nike Air Yeezy 2 in 2012. Some may postulate that Nike’s Twitter RSVP system was created just to counter the seemingly limitless crowds that would undoubtedly show at storefronts, and although independently owned shops did not employ their own “Twitter RSVP”, Nike did encourage each store to use a raffle-style release in order to minimize the camp-out craze. Two colorways of the Air Yeezy 2 came and went, and considering the original Air Yeezy released in three versions, many believed that a third Air Yeezy 2 colorway was in the works – especially with that curious “Kobe” colorway in purple/red/volt still swimming around the net and Gentry Humphrey himself coolly mentioned that “things are still in the works”. With that said, the excitement around the Air Yeezy 2 has never waned, but recent events have propelled this discussion topic back to the surface. Tonight’s topic on What Do You Think?: What could the release of the red Nike Air Yeezy 2 colorway mean for the sneaker game and how will it go down?

March 5th, 2013 by | 3 comments

reebok s carter kanye west Kanye West x Reebok S. Carter CL Low   2008 Promo Sample Set

The current #ReebokBack campaign has been supported primarily by the celebrity presence around the brand, with hip-hop icon Swizz Beatz leading the charge and adding other names like Rick Ross and Tyga to its roster of representative. But the Reebok x Hip-hop connection is hardly a new concept for the brand, and if anything, it delved into the urban culture influence before other brands did. This rare and forgotten 2008 release is an amalgam of arguably the two biggest names in hip-hop – Jay-Z and Kanye West; the model you see is the Reebok S. Carter CL Low (Jay-Z’s sneaker) designed in four colorways for Kanye West, which released all the way back in 2008. This custom-made set for Kanye West appears to be identical to the released versions, but it’s still a treat to see this powerhouse of a hip-hop combination in sneaker form. If you’re curious to see more, check out the gallery below and see how much this set sold for in this listing from authentic_sneaker_powerseller on eBay.
