Air Yeezy 2

After the success of the Nike Air Yeezy, there was no question that a second would release from the Kanye West signature line. Named the Air Yeezy 2, this will be the second shoe released from Nike with a non-athlete as the endorsee. Sharing a similar glow-in-the-dark to the first, the Yeezy 2 has a shorter-cut with a spike-textured heel. Sneaker enthusiasts worldwide will be hoping to get their hands on a pair come June 9, 2012.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” Closer Look

Seen on the feet of Kanye West and virtually no one else, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” has proven the most elusive sneaker of 2013. Thanks to S. Sami and the good folks at Sneaker News, we now have a detailed look at the pair that ranks high on many a sneakerhead’s wish list. Baring the same build as the other Yeezy 2s but differing slightly in colorway and composition, the “Red Octobers” sport an all-red aesthetic, altered upper panel and diamond Swoosh. Torch tongue, Horus branding and midfoot strap are still in tact, with sole glow details tough to tell. Check out detailed photos of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” below.
