air yeezy 2 charity auction Nike Air Yeezy 2 Charity Auction

Earlier this month RE/CREATE New York launched a charitable platform for which creators and artists could donate some of their productions for auction, with proceeds going directly to the New York Cares organization. A standout of the collection of items was a pair Air Yeezy 2s in the Black/Solar Red colorway that were worn and signed by hip-hop mega-star Kanye West; with a charitable cause at focus of this incredible auction, we predict the final bidding price on this item to be far greater than any sneaker auction we’ve already seen – and it’s already on its way to some incredible numbers.

sneads yeezy summary SNEADS: Who Aint Got No Yeezy?

Will the Nike Air Yeezy 2 launch this past weekend wind up as the single biggest sneaker story of 2012?  We’ll look back from the precipice of ’13 remembering how the second Kanye West x Nike Sportswear release melted a corner of the internet, and barring a surprise on the order of the Nike Mag or something extra special from Jordan Brand, Mr. West’s best yet is a safe bet to top all the year-end best-of lists.  A huge part of the Air Yeezy 2′s sweeping success is its exclusivity and how tough it is to get a pair, but could we ever see a bizarro world where Yeezys are so limited Ye himself can’t even get a pair?  That’s the premise for Ree’s latest Sn’eads cartoon, one that includes the latest Kanye in Air Jordan VIs sighting.  Have a look at the video in full after the jump, let us know if you been had Yeezy 2s and let us know if you’ve had any luck grabbing a pair in the aftermath of Saturday’s launch.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 – Officially Unveiled

May 30th, 2012 by | 100 comments

air yeezy 2 unveiled 5 Nike Air Yeezy 2   Officially Unveiled

It’s here.

Possibly the most anticipated sequel to any sneaker in the history of the game is Kanye West’s second project with Nike Sportswear. The first Yeezy was introduced in 2009 (hope you remembered that proceeds went to a charity of Kanye’s choice) and has since created an indomitable legend in such a short period of time, causing an increased excitement about the the second Air Yeezy. Built on the Air Tech Challenge II outsole with design inspiration gathered from other classic Cross Training silhouettes, the Air Yeezy 2 draws upon the animalistic appeal with the anaconda-textured leather and reptilian-inspired spikes along the heel, but also serves true function as unnecessary padding was removed and the tongue and collar are both comfortable and breathable. Clearly, the shoe is slimmer and a bit lowered compared to the original Air Yeezy, as it was tailored to fit Kanye’s foot and designed for comfort and movement.

One of the highlight details of the Air  Yeezy 2 is the selection of materials; a luxurious combination of rich leather, rugged ballistic nylon, and soft nubuck complete an awe-inspiring package of high-end feel. The added details refer ancient civilizations, like the emblem of Horus on the tongue, the hieroglyphics that spell out ‘YZY’, and ‘lace-lock’ holes that spell out the Roman numeral ‘II’. The Nike Air Yeezy 2 will release globally on June 9th at select retailers and will be very limited in number, so continue reading for these official detailed images and stay tuned for more updates regarding the release of what is surely one of the best sneaker releases of 2012.
