Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” Officially Released

To the surprise of the entire sneaker community, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” launched today at Nike Store. To the surprise of no one, the shoe sold out immediately.

The oft-delayed, constantly sought after signature sneaker for Kanye West has been a talking point of the sneaker community since Kanye West debuted the all-red rendition on Saturday Night Live. It’s lack of a release date, paired with a refusal for royalties, led West to leave Nike and partner with adidas-- a move that could see KW x adidas product and stores as soon as this September.

Today at noon CST, the thought to be cancelled “Red October” colorway was released via a Tweet from Nike Store. The true definition of a quickstrike, or modern day ‘hyperstrike,’ the launch was with out forewarning of an official release date and dropped on a Sunday– a day which typically doesn’t see new product become live.

At this point, we would say the “Red October” saga is officially over, but based on today, who knows? Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for any future information regarding the official availability of the “Red October” Nike Air Yeezy 2 and let us know if you were able to pick up a pair in the comment section.
