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.

As we already know from Watch the Throne’s ’Paris’ track, if you’re sufficiently successful, people will follow you even when they don’t personally have a connection to the source of your swag.  And so it goes with the Nike Air Yeezy 2 Kanye West wore on stage during the WTT tour, a shoe so highly anticipated that campouts began back in late February in the face of all reason (and without a concrete date to consider).  Those select few whose hourly profit potential is plummeting with each delay find themselves facing the next in a series of delays that now has the Air Yeezy 2 on track for a June drop, which if you remember back to 2009 was the month that the original Air Yeezy shipped its last of three colorways.  Let us know how you’re coping with the anticipation and stick with Sneaker News for updates including the exact Air Yeezy 2 release date.  via Complex

Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Wolf Grey’ – Euro Release Date

Where are you Yeezy 2?  The answer to that question is exactly where you want to be on April 13th, a date that unlike the previously circulating March drop rumors is being backed by the very retailers that will have the first Nike Air Yeezy 2 in store (with some UK spots claiming they’ll have stock a day earlier on the 12th).  The Wolf Grey and Pure Platinum Air Yeezy 2 is a slightly more aggressive follow-up to the ‘Zen Grey’ Yeezy, this pair undoubtedly more texturally rich than its forebear, but can they produce the same frenzy as the first drops in April 2009?  Will you even have the scratch necessary to wrangle a pair at the $250 MSRP with all the heat that’s dropped earlier this year and more soon to come?!  Another major milestone in what’s shaping up as the single biggest year in the history of sneakerhead culture, you’ll find the ‘Wolf Grey’ Air Yeezy 2 at top-end Nike Sportswear locations like Solebox in Berlin on April 13th, 2012.

We also get a better indication of the luxurious upper materials, the Torch mesh in the tongue, the chunky metallic lace tips and a nice crisp view of the Yeezy 2 dustbag seen last night. These are set to hit worldwide retailers like Singapore’s Limited Edt on April 13th, so dig into these pics and you’d better start gameplanning for the release if you’re hoping to get a pair.
