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.
