Special delivery!!! Kanye is rehearsing for his tour so I can't bug him right now...hmmmm what should I do with these? #Yeezys #RedOctobers
UPDATE: Kim Kardashian, somehow, received a pair before me.
10.13.13: October is nearing the halfway mark and still no official release info on the Air Yeezy II: Red Octobers!?! With this new image of the kicks surfacing today, even the most casual sneakerhead is likely filled with even higher anticipation. How can I get one 'Ye?!
The 'Red October' Air Yeezy 2s — perhaps the most anticipated shoe release for the rest of 2013. And Kanye's giving 'em away to lucky fans who purchase his new album, Yeezus.
The gist: Starting tomorrow, simply purchase Yeezus in-stores or on iTunes, OR send an email to email@example.com to receive an access code. It looks like you can just e-mail them for the access code. 'Ye has a limited amount: 50 pairs that he'll be giving away in 3 weekly drawings. For the full details: giveaway.kanyewest.com.
A few new pics (Instagrams) of the Red/Red Yeezy II's have surfaced! I should note that I'm looking into the source and if there is official confirmation, but as far as I can tell, it looks legit. And while the quality or angle of the pic isn't exceptional, these images successfully tease the new release. 'Fresh' is my go-to adjective to describe fashion or sneakers, and fresh is an understatement from what I see in the first image. I love the idea of the Red/Red and look forward to seeing what the final product looks like with some official images. At this rate after tonight's leak, the premiere of the shoe on SNL, plus Yeezus on the way soon, I sense we'll get those sooner than later.
Via Don C's Instagram tonight @GivenchyDon, we have a first-look at both the All Red Air Yeezy 2 and the possible album art to the newly announced upcoming Kanye West album, Yeezus. 'Ye also sported the Red Yeezy's during tonight's performances on SNL, but given the dark aesthetics (fancy way of saying "lack of light"), one couldn't really get a good look at them (there's a quick flash in spotlight during the "Black Skinhead" performance). From what I can see so far, the kicks look fresh. I love when red's the dominant color on kicks so I'll surely be keeping a close eye out on these. As for the possible album art: that graphic is at the very least representing the aggresive, highly intense tone of Kanye's first two releases. I'm excited to see the final version and to find out what the symbolism means.
Thoughts on the kicks and (possible) Yeezus cover art?
