Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has a big summer on deck with a new Yeezus solo album set to hit shelves in a few weeks and new, leaked photos of some all red Nike Air Yeezy 2 kicks starting to circulate online.
Extreme close-up shots of the new kicks hit the Internet Wednesday (May 29) night.
Even with all the Jordans dropping this year, it’s hard to think of another sneaker more anticipated than the all red Nike Air Yeezy 2. There’s been images of the kicks floating around for months now but things went extra Hypebeast when he rocked them on SNL. Since then there’s been rumors of its release, but Nike hasn’t given up any information. Last night, Nike fiend jsusneaks revealed some more photos, including a glow in the dark shot. (Miss Info TV)
Initial photos of the kicks started to heat up the ‘net earlier this month.
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.

The rapper’s pregnant girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, also played a part in starting up the hype.
Apparently, his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, is also part of his marketing team. She posted a photo on Instagram Saturday night showing the album artwork for Yeezus alongside a pair of the rapper’s Air Yeezy sneakers, which he designed for Nike. “#Yeezus #RedYeezy’s #SNL #Tonight #NewSlaves #YeezySeason #Donda #June18,” she captioned the image.
