Oh Kim Kardashian, just a few short months with the man and it already looks like Yeezy taught you well. After Kanye West and Kim linked up her sneaker game was immediately on the rise, popping up in the Air Jordan III ‘White/Cement’, a sneaker selection no doubt influenced by Mr. West.

Hit the jump with us for the full shot of her and Kanye in their matching “his and hers” Black/Solar Red Nike Air Yeezy 2′s, a release so crazy that some people stood in line for a duration almost as long as Kim’s last marriage.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 – Officially Unveiled

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.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Solar Red’ – On-Feet

May 16th, 2012 by | 54 comments

Updates regarding the Air Yeezy 2 release always seem to report a change, but just yesterday, Sneaker News provided you with a simple reminder that Air Yeezy 2 launch is still on schedule for June 9th in Australia. Production numbers are very limited (the entire continent of Australia is getting just 60 pairs total) so you can guess just how crazy the release will be (Nike’s nixing of camp-outs and midnight releases should definitely soothe the tension). While we’ve yet to see detailed images of the Black/Solar Red colorway straight from Nike, these continue to be spotted on the feet of some of Kanye’s and Nike’s VVIP (the extra V is intended); here we get a close-up On-Feet look at the Black/Solar Red joints from Jerry Lorenzo and you can clearly see the amount of detail that was packed into this sensitive project. More shots below, so take a look and stay tuned for more updates on the Air Yeezy 2.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 – Release On Schedule

May 15th, 2012 by | 75 comments

nike air yeezy 2 release june 9th 1 Nike Air Yeezy 2   Release On Schedule

Up until now, the Air Yeezy 2 has strictly been a ‘VIP’ only affair, with fellas by the names of Jay-Z, Shawn Pecas (one of Def Jam’s top dogs), and LeBron James being the very select group of people with the shoes on feet. The release of the Air Yeezy 2 has been subject to change possibly in response to the advanced camp-outs that were reported months before the rumored April 2012 release date, but confirmed data of a June drop later quieted the rumors of a complete cancellation of the much-hyped sneaker release. Since we provided you the info on a June release, not much more has been said regarding the shoe, but this latest update from Australian retailer Laced confirms that the Air Yeezy 2 ETA is right on schedule – June 9th, both colorways.

To get an idea of how limited they will be, the entire continent of Australia will receive sixty total pairs, and Laced will hold their own raffle to ensure a fair shot to those who attend their release party on the night of the release. We’ll keep you updated with more information regarding stateside release details, but keep in mind that June 9th is the target date for this summer blockbuster.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 Shoebag Details

April 20th, 2012 by | 28 comments

yeezy 2 shoebag lacetips 1 Nike Air Yeezy 2 Shoebag Details

The Nike Air Yeezy 2 isn’t just some wild looking sneaker designed by arguably the most famous rapper alive. It’s an ultra-premium lifestyle sneaker whose inevitable markup on the secondary market shows its true value while the MSRP itself reflects the level of quality and detail that goes in to constructing a pair. Take for example the Air Yeezy 2′s dustbag, a nylon enclosure that features a Nike Sportswear on one side opposite the Yeezy 2′s Horus insignia. That bag closes with laces just like the ones that go into the Air Yeezy 2 itself and shares those same distinctively squared metal aglets.  We’ve known to expect those as a luxurious finishing touch on this shoe for some time, and today, for the first time, we see also that these distinctive lace tips can screw right off. What this means is that not only does the Yeezy 2 push the envelope on premium metal-tipped laces, but we might also be seeing the first signs of what’s about to be a massive flood of new accessories for kicks as these kinds of laces (and add-ons to fit them) become more popular. Let us know what you think about these unique Nike Air Yeezy 2 details while you’re inspecting more images below and stick with Sneaker News for confirmation of the official release date.
