The Nike Air Yeezy II "Red October" is the most polarizing sneaker in recent memory, spurring all types of "Red October" this and "Red October" that. Finally, we get a look at detailed images of the Nike Air Yeezy II "Red October", a shoe which has been kept largely under wraps.
The Red October Yeezy II is constructed of an aesthetic upper panel with carved, diamond Nike swooshes. The tongue and mid foot strap maintain the classic Air Yeezy II look, with the "II" stamped into the lace lock. Hopefully, these will just release already, so we can all go on living our lives.
Jets quarterback Geno Smith had a huge weekend. Yesterday, he topped Drew Brees and the Saints to help the Jets improve to 5-4.
Earlier in the weekend, he attended the Brooklyn Nets vs. Miami Heat game, and drew a lot of attention from the sneaker community when he rocked his pair of Red October Yeezy 2's. He later gave a more detailed look of the kicks on instagram in case you wanted the full view.
Fellow Jets rookie Dee Milliner was also at the game in a pair of Space Jams. The Jets rookies are something to look out for on and off the field!
Last night on SNL Kanye West laced up a pair of Air Yeezy 2's in an all red "Raging Bull" colorway. While sneakerblogs lit up with the possibility these would release, others were skeptical. First of all, Kanye West is allowed to design a shoe with Nike every 2 years. Last year we saw the Yeezy 2, which would slate the Yeezy 3 for a 2014 release. While Kanye's exact contract is not available, one would think if a new colorway were to be available to the public, we would have seen it before the end of 2012.
One of the most notable custom artists in the sneaker community, has been at it again and this time he gave the 'Solar Red' Air Yeezy 2 a custom treatment.
Most sneakerheads would not even think of altering shoes as expensive as a pair of Yeezy's, however with his talent Mache did not hesitate to do so. He added a loud floral print to the scaled side paneling on each shoe, crating a unique look that is sure to turn heads.
