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.

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.

Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke ‘Net Air Yeezy’ by Shea White

nike air force 1 bespoke air yeezy net 11 Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke Net Air Yeezy by Shea White

Behind this latest Bespoke creation is Shea White, who described the Bespoke experience perfectly by stating “…custom making a pair of sneakers with the materials and colors of your choosing is a dream…” and subsequently went ahead and created this jaw-dropping design. Using the Nike Air Yeezy ‘Net’ and the Hawaiian sunset as the inspiration, White infused tropical with the Yeezy perfectly, using the ‘Net’ colorway on the upper with safari print and a Total Orange heel-stripe on the rear for a unique two-part design concept. There’s no doubt he could’ve gone full Yeezy with his design by adding light-beige patent leather and making the outsole the light green instead of Vivid Pink, but Bespokes shine the brightest when done with a personal twist. Check out Shea White’s Bespoke below and let us know what you think!

The Nike Air Yeezy 2 has been one of the burning topics of conversation on Sneaker News. When will we see detailed angles? What materials are being used? Will the shoe even release? With the excitement surrounding the Air Yeezy 2 growing day by day, those who decided to pass on the original Air Yeezy are kicking themselves for not making the effort to cop a pair. Just know this: If and when the Air Yeezy 2 releases, the original Air Yeezy release will be like a casual walk in the park. Since the Air Yeezy released in 2009, the value has seen no ceiling, and the crop of deadstock pairs has been dwindling by day. Luckily, one eBay seller is getting rid of his entire Air Yeezy set (all three colorways – the Black/Pink, the Zen Grey, and the Net), so if you’re willing to throw down the necessary cash to get yourself all three, check out the auction from mjmurphy923 on eBay.

No disrespect to the Nike Air Yeezy 2, but it looks like it won’t take the crown as the Number 1 sneaker of 2011. That honor will go to the Nike Mag 2011, but the Air Yeezy 2 was certainly a strong frontrunner to capture the annual crown. Here’s another closer look at the Nike Air Yeezy 2 that Kanye West wore during the 2011 MTV VMAs; these clearer shots give you a better idea of the overall construction of the shoe, which features a slightly lower cut, completely different tooling, and a stylized panel on the medial midfoot strap. Check out the extra shots from Kanye West’s MTV VMA performance and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for more information on this upcoming release. via MTV/NT.

Spotted during the Nike Mag 2011 Unveiling event at Nike Sportswear @ The Montalban in Hollywood, CA was the Nike Air Yeezy ‘Glow In The Dark’ samples, seen on the feet of Tiffany Beers, a Nike Product Innovator whose notable works include the Air Yeezy and Nike Mag 2011 redesign. The Glow In The Dark sample has made its rounds on the internet for some time, and it’s quite appropriate for Beers (officially the coolest surname of all-time) to show off these rare gems during the Nike Mag 2011 event, a sneaker that may have had some influence, direct or indirect, on the original design of the Nike Air Yeezy. Check out these new shots of the G.I.T.D. Air Yeezy below and let us know if you’d like to see a Glow In The Dark Air Yeezy 2! via dresslikekanyewest.
