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.

    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.

  • Kohl Cannon

  • MichaelBeiswenger

    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

  • ChristopherParisReid

    *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 Once the ‘endorsement’ connection is obsolete and/or void…IT KILLS THE VALUE OF THE PRODUCT.

  • ChristopherParisReid

    *just buy the replicas, and give them away like Macklemore

  • Christopher Paris Reid

    people have more money than they have common sense

  • Christopher Paris Reid

    …thats what’s going on.

  • Leon Debeljak

    I like expensive stuff too but cmon…that’s just plain stupid

  • David Russell

    I got no notice smh lol

  • MichaelBeiswenger

    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

  • Alex Carnes

    Yeezy’s would be the only fake kicks I ever bought. Not worth even the retail price tag on em

  • Alexis Clo

    bbuy replica’s, they are quite the same

  • Leon Debeljak

    I don’t like yeezys…

  • Dwayne Cochrane

    They stopped people from camping out for a week. That’s why no release date.

  • Ahnubis

    You must got a replica. The contest winners and a few celebs had first samples. Where u got yours from?

  • Josh Hilton


  • Brandon Allen Juezan-Williams

    these are fake tho. just fyi.

  • Sam Gibson

    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

  • Chris Suggs

    Not really my type of shoe

  • Sergio Andres Velasquez Gonzalez

    Estan geniales.


    Look for them to sneak out again in a restock soon!

  • Le’Roy Kelly II

    If you can pay $245 for a pair of shoes that won’t benefit you none then you can invest $100 in something that will actually put money back in your pocket..

    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.

  • Murf Tarantino

    i want deez

  • Neezy

    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.

    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
