Introducing The Nike Air Yeezy by Kanye West

“The Air Yeezy is inspired by Kanye’s love for high top designer shoes, drafting from the collar molding seen in the Air Jordan V and featuring a thin midfoot strap hardly meant for support. While originally conceptualized atop a Dunk midsole, the final version of the Yeezy features the familiar shared tooling from the Jordan III and Air Revolution”

    Being a sneaker head i cant say i fell them. But i really do appreciate that he is into designing and creating his shoe other than alot of rappers that have shoes out that look like they dont even care how looks there just tryna get the extra $.

    Much Props to Ye.

    These look a lot different then the first, less extreme maybe? meh, I’d let my boyfriend wear em lol I know there have got to be more color options coming though, I hope.

    I read somewhere else that he, or rather, Nike, wasn’t going to release these anytime soon if at all. . . I wish they would. I’m really feeling these.
