Jordan Son Of Mars ‘Son Of Yeezy’ Customs By Mache

April 9th, 2012 by | 46 comments

Did Yeezy teach Mache how to do customs? Well, we know for sure that he directed him toward his latest custom creation – the Jordan Son Of Mars ‘Son Of Yeezy’. One of the design features of the Jordan Son Of Mars that seemed to be a bit of a turn-off to some Jordan fans was the mid-foot strap, so Mache transformed it into a sneaker that uses a thick mid-foot strap as a highlight of its aesthetic – the Nike Air Yeezy. Reconstituting the Son Of Mars ‘Club Purple’ into the Black/Pink Yeezy in a seamless form, the Son Of Yeezy is the perfect overlapping of the Air Yeezy in its most popular form and the hybrid design of the Son of Mars. Enough talk – check out the gallery of Mache Customs’ latest banger and let us know if this sick concept changes your opinion of the Son Of Mars!

Nike Air Yeezy x Air Jordan VI Sample

What’s Kanye West’s favorite shoe? Is it the Air Jordan VI, which we’ve seen him rock effortlessly time and time again on the streets and during live performances, or is it the Nike Air Yeezy, his first ever signature shoe with Nike? It’s likely a toss-up at this point because Kanye’s been wearing Air Jordans long before his Nike deal, but here’s a look at something that could have been – a Nike Air Yeezy with an Air Jordan VI outsole. This sick Yeezy x VI sample, shared by Kanye’s pal Don C, combines Yeezy’s first with Jordan’s first (championship) in a tonal-black set-up with an orange ‘Y’ lace lock, suede uppers, a leather ankle, and patent leather midfoot strap. Remember, these were a sample created at the Innovation Kitchen back in 2009 that was part of a special auction for a charitable cause. What are your thoughts on this Air Yeezy x Air Jordan VI sample as it surfaces again today? Check out the extra angles below and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for the looming release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2, which has been rumored to go down on March 23rd.

Lil’ Wayne sure attends a lot of Heat games for someone who isn’t a Heat fan. The hip-hop artist made some headlines last season for making some comments regarding LeBron and Wade’s “refusal” to acknowledge Lil’ Wayne during a regular season game, who sat courtside. Tunechi was spotted once again sitting in the front row during last night’s Hawks/Heat match-up wearing the Nike Air Yeezy ‘Net’, matching it with an Earl Sweatshirt sweatshirt. Other figments of Weezy fashion included the patented fitted hat above the hoodie and spotted shorts. Check out Lil’ Wayne and the Yeezys after the jump and let us know what you think. via ESPN.

Nike Air Yeezy 3 – In the Works According to Kanye

December 27th, 2011 by | 24 comments

Most of the sneaker world is anxiously awaiting the release of Kanye West’s second signature shoe with Nike, and while that’s not expected to happen until this spring, Mr. West just threw some interesting info our way via his Twitter. Apparently, Kanye is wasting no time going back to the drawing board (literally), as he has reportedly passed on tonight’s dinner so he can focus on sketching concepts for the Nike Air Yeezy 3. With the top-secret Yeezy 2 still pretty well under wraps, don’t expect to hear much on the Air Yeezy 3 anytime soon, but at least we now know that there looks to be a third Yeezy shoe in progress and the thought of working on it is alluring enough to make Kanye miss meals for it. That’s good enough to get us excited. How about you?

The Nike Air Yeezy remains as one of the most compelling year-round sneaker topics in the game, and with the upcoming release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2, it’ll reach higher heights. Until we do get more solid information regarding the release (tentatively set at 3/23/12), here’s a look at some more Air Yeezy goodness – a 1-of-1 ‘Laser’ sample. It features a similar colorway to the ‘Grammy’ edition that was auctioned off over two years ago, but this particular pair features lasering of the ‘YEEZY’ graphic on the midfoot strap that was seen on heel-tabs of other Air Yeezy samples. Check out the video below to get a look at the sample and let us know what you think.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 – Up Close Look

One of the biggest stories this past week was the rumored release date of the Nike Air Yeezy 2, which is tentatively set to touch down on March 23rd, 2012. However, we still haven’t seen detailed shots of the Air Yeezy 2 until now, and the luxurious materials and design should make these as successful (or maybe more than) the original Nike Air Yeezy. The Black/Pink/Mint colorway features a premium croc-skin material on the upper with a molded heel (possibly Foamposite?) with a rugged nylon material with suede material foxing. On the medial side is a suede midfoot strap housing as well. The midsole features a combination of black and mint green with a translucent mint green outsole (with the construction borrowed from the Air Tech Challenge II). The idiom ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ certainly applies to the Air Yeezy 2 design, as it utilizes similar design formula used in the original. We’ve got a detailed set of images for you below, so take a good look and let us know what you think. via deadstockdon.

nike air yeezy 2 zen grey new images summary Nike Air Yeezy 2   Release Date

By now, we’ve had a ton of good looks at a few upcoming colorways of the eagerly anticipated Nike Air Yeezy 2, but actual info on their release has been pretty hard to come by. Originally expected to hit retail towards the end of 2011, Kanye’s second Nike shoe saw some delays, pushing it back to sometime next year. Rumors have been swirling for a while that a March drop was scheduled for the first release, and now we get some unofficial confirmation by @AirMag on Twitter. While not affiliated with Nike, the source has posted a countdown graphic for the Yeezy 2, indicating that it will finally hit stores 100 days from now, making the tentative due date March 23, 2012. No word on which colorway will hit first, but you know Sneaker News will keep you up to date with all the latest info.
