When it was announced earlier that Maison Martin Margiela‘s collection for H&M would be an array of “limited re-editions,” the partnership instantly established itself as one of the most anticipated and coveted collaborations of the year.
We just can’t wait until the “I sold my car for Yeezy kicks” stories start to surface. A full year after Kanye West first debuted his signature black Air Yeezy 2 sneakers in The Black Mamba short film, we’ve finally gotten a concrete street date and full product shots of the hotly anticipated new kicks. View more pics of the Yeezys below.
Kanye West teases with a look at the Nike Air Yeezy II, a design that will surely see a release sometime down the line. Looking a bit less flashy than the previous model, the kicks sport a leather upper with off-white midsoles, textured paneling and glow-in-the-dark outsoles, matching a colorway similar to the original Grammy-worn Air Yeezy. Stay tuned for further new and closer looks in the coming weeks.
Nike has done a great job for decades keeping the public and sneaker enthusiasts on our toes. In a preview of the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film “The Black Mamba”, Kanye West appears as “The Boss” wearing the Nike Air Yeezy 2. While one can’t get a solid look at the shoe in the film preview, you can catch just enough of a glimpse to get a little bit of a feel for the Nike Air Yeezy 2. First, the Yeezy 2 does not use the same outsole tooling as the Nike Air Yeezy. Instead of the Nike Air Revolution outsole, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 employs the midsole and outsole tooling from Nike Air Tech Challenge II. In addition to the outsole, one can also tell that a contrast pink liner sits inside the black upper much like Black/Pink Yeezy.No current info is floating out there about a Nike Air Yeezy 2 release date or price. Have a look below at several images we enhanced to give you a better look at the shoe.
