When a bogus release date of June 18th began circulating in late May, the rumor grew so rampant across the internet that Nike’s Heidi Burgett was prompted to get on Twitter to quell the hysteria by stating that the date in question was a farce, but also revealing that Nike was “planning to release it later this year”.
Now with confirmation of a release from inside Beaverton, red Yeezy mania was officially in full-effect. The shoes showed up again on Kanye’s feet a few times in the weeks that followed, including his show at Governors Ball on June 9th.
