Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” Officially Released

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.

  1. Nicekicks you suckers on on the late train shoe released about 2 hrs ago. Solecollector put it up right away. I commented on your previous post saying the red October yezzy dropped around 10:45 pst and you hatters deleted my comment (bitches)

  2. People bout to get sticked up for these.. Thats like someone eating in ur face and aint no food left.. Why cant anyone buy them if they want them..

  3. Replica’s for $90 look mint. Buy 5 and should be good for 6-12 months even if you get mugged a few times

  4. umm Kanye is the one that wanted a GR shoe. He wanted the yeezy’s to be a regular, staple produced shoe. Nike wanted to keep them limited. They wouldn’t give him that hence why he left for Adidas. Kanye is going to have a full line of sneakers as well as clothing threw Adidas.

  5. bissett_ben yeah it’s ridiculous. Sadly we’ll never see a Nike Air Yeezy 3. Would have liked to get my hands on these.

  6. i was in dennys when these released and i somehow got some in my cart…. i was in shock and probably freaked everyone around me out, SO HAPPY THO I GOTTEM

  7. *Anyone why purchases these after Kanye West has blatantly parted ways with Nike is a [fool]. What exactly were your reasons for getting these kicks? I’m guessing you’re the type that still rocks those Adidas Crazy 8′s and call them Kobe’s. Same goes for D-Wade and his former Jordan alliance. Once the ‘endorsement’ connection is obsolete and/or void…IT KILLS THE VALUE OF THE PRODUCT.

  8. ChristopherParisReid  the reason is to flip them you retard. i sold mine for 3,200.00 
    what are you doing with your basic life? (ha) (ha) nothing

  9. I know there replicas but i dont care no one will call me out or anything, plus for $100 you cant beat it, i have the solar red reps that I got for $70 and there still going strong

  10. if you look at it, nike doesn’t really make a whole lot in terms of profit off yeezys seeing as to how limited they all are.

  11. ChristopherParisReid  “It kills the value of the product” for whom? Speak for yourself. Although Jordan Brand is under the Nike umbrella, I don’t seem to recall the day Jordan left Nike to create his own brand, did the Nike sneakers of his lose any value. I don’t ever recall any of Tim Duncan’s or Kevin Garnett’s sneakers losing value after opting to part ways with Nike either. In fact, it made them more sought after and more “classic.” To the point about not calling “Crazy 8s” by the name they once were, Deion Sanders is an Under Armour endorsee and ANY retro of his past sneakers, albeit without the “Prime Time” goal post/home plate logo, is still AUTOMATICALLY a Deion Sanders sneaker. Your logic is pretty flawed.

  12. His sister got her own dam livewebcam. man she does all kinda freaky stuff in there for free too…heres her livecam room… w w w . x. vu/lana44

  13. I got through on a pair!!!!!!! Extremely lucky I guess : O I got a size 9. It was extremely fair no bots limited qs and hyperstike releases should always be like this.

  24. ChristopherParisReid MichaelBeiswenger  your original comment said that “once an ‘endorsement’ connection is obsolete it kills the value of a product” 

    these yeezys are the most sought after and expensive nike shoe since the air mags. you obviously need to re evaluate your knowledge of shoe hype. have fun running your weak ass business hahahahaha
