In late May, reports suggested Ye's eye-catching kicks would drop June 18.
After the first glimpse of the all-red Air Yeezy IIs early this month, fans have been impatiently anticipating them. Now it looks as though some light has finally been shed on the release date. Earlier today, jsusneaks released some more photos of the new Air Yeezy colorway and judging by the package, the sneakers may be arriving on June 18th, the same as Yeezus' album release date. The pics also reveal that the kicks could be arriving in a limited run of 1000 pairs. So can Kanye possibly be releasing these shoes on the same day as his album? (XXL Mag)
Initial photos of the latest version of Ye's kicks started to heat up the 'net back in May.
As the third rumored colorway of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 has finally been officially unveiled courtesy of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, new information and additional photos have hit the internet. Since last year, the rumors behind this Nike sneaker consisted of a third all red colorway and whether glowing soles would be included was still a question. These new photos now show an up close look at the sneaker and its additional features so view them above and stay tuned for more information regarding this Nike Air Yeezy colorway. (Kicks On Fire)
Mr. West is largely responsible for starting the craze after sporting the kicks a few weekends ago on the season finale of "Saturday Night Live."
As we draw ever closer to what looks to be the coming of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 third colorway, things start to heat up with another preview. After Kanye himself wore them doing his memorable SNL performance, hype surrounding the shoe has hit its early peak, all the while sneakerheads being unsure if the shoe will actually drop.
