Nike Sportswear’s tortured us before with its Foamposite fiasco of late May/early June, and they’re about to ruffle a few more feathers. NSW just recently updated its Twitter account with a simple message: “Looks like Kanye West is on twitter again. Maybe we should do some kind of collaboration with that guy.” Obviously Nike’s already teamed up with Kanye West before, resulting in last year’s Nike Air Yeezy – number 2 on Sneaker News’ Top 30 of 2009. So what can we make of Nike Sportswear’s comment? An innocent inside joke of some sort, or perhaps a hint into something absolutely monumental? Could we have a Nike Air Yeezy II in the works, or perhaps more colorways of the original Nike Air Yeezy? Perhaps we are reading too much into the “tweet” but there’s no denying a Yeezy II would cause a mass alert in the sneaker world. What do you guys think? If new colorways of the Air Yeezy were planned, what would you suggest? via NSW Twitter.
