The Nike Air Yeezy wasn’t just one of the best sneakers of the last decade, it helped to further define the sneaker culture as more than performance sneakers, but tools of expression through footwear fashion. Kanye West is the first non-athlete to have his own signature Nike shoe, and the sequel to the super-high-top sneaker is arguably the single most anticipated new release of 2011. During his cameo appearance in “The Black Mamba,” The Boss, (aka Kanye West) gave us a sneak peek at what is presumably his second signature shoe with Nike – the Nike Air Yeezy 2.

While we don’t get a great look, this quick glimpse of the shoe should shed a little light on what to expect from Kanye and Nike’s second go-around. Obviously, we don’t get a very clear view here, but it’s apparent that the follow-up to the Air Yeezy will once again feature an extra-high cut and a strap, with what appears to be classic tooling at the base. From what we can see here, what do you think so far? Check out some more pics after the jump, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for all Air Yeezy information and updates.

kobe bryant x nike the black mamba world premiere summary Kobe Bryant x Nike Basketball – ‘The Black Mamba’ World Premiere

Kobe Bryant just made his worldwide debut in film as the starring role in ‘The Black Mamba‘, a film featuring Bruce Willis, Danny Trejo, and Kanye West, and directed by Robert Rodriguez, who is best known for his work in Sin City, Desperado, and Machete among others. Rodriguez’s unique filming style was prevalent in ‘The Black Mamba’, with the unique visual style and hero vs. villian storyline, but the real story here is the “making of the movie” movie that takes place within. Obviously, this was never intended to be a full-length movie, but the behind the scenes pitch meeting concept gives a chance for the whole story to be told, mixed in with some humor and of course, big budget explosions.

The Boss, played by Kanye West is on a mission to take down the Black Mamba and confiscate the Mamba’s shoes, sending his most vicious cronies to take him down. Unfortunately for The Boss, the Black Mamba strikes back, culminating with an epic battle for basketball-court supremacy and an unsuccesful shoe theft. And how does Black Mamba end? According to Rodriguez and Kobe, “Black Mamba doesn’t end. Heroes come and go, but legends are forever.” Keep reading for the full video and some screen shots and behind the scenes pics after the jump.
