If you ask, who’s getting them? What’s the retail price? No one really knows. How many pairs will be released? No one has the exact answer. The only certainty about the Nike Air Yeezy II is that it will sell out right away and the official release date is June 9th. I’m almost 100% sure, do to the increase in violence during camp outs most stores will be doing raffles. Which means that if you want to get a pair at retail price you will have to go out there and try your luck. If not, you will be paying top dollar from re-sellers or consignment stores…
The Nike Air Yeezy II sure has a lot of hype behind it; however, do you think the shoe is worth it? I do! With a superb construction and amazing attention to detail, they will go down as one of the best Nike’s of all time. You might see me out there at one of the raffles testing my luck…. In the mean time here are some detailed images and the full description by NIKE. Happy and SAFE Hunting!
Forging a new form of sport craftsmanship, the Nike Air Yeezy II blends classic Nike court breakthroughs with the performance and aesthetic demands of bringing hype to a crowd of thousands.
A primal, tactile approach to technology runs throughout every element of the Nike Air Yeezy II. Armored animalistic forms imbue the upper. Hand skived anaconda textured leather quarter panels are embellished with a debossed Vac-Tech Nike Swoosh. The molded rear is sculpted with a reptilian inspired spike, while an engineered strap with scaled down spikes was developed to offer a greater sense of symmetry and lock down.
Bringing the inspiration forward from the late 1980′s basketball foundation of the original Nike Air Yeezy, the II is built on the Nike Air Tech Challenge II tennis shoe outsole and celebrates iconic Nike Cross Training silhouettes with the addition of the molded forefoot strap.
There’s absolute function at the Air Yeezy II’s core. Unnecessary padding was eliminated, and the foot-hugging tongue and plush collar are both comfortable and breathable. Fit was essential to the design with the goal to make the shoe slimmer than the original by tailoring it to Kanye West’s foot. The collar was also lowered to allow for greater movement.
An obsessive approach to materials results in a luxurious mix of leather, rugged ballistic nylon, and soft nubuck. Concealed but opulent details reference ancient civilizations, including a loop strap with hieroglyphics that spell out ‘YZY.’ Each screw on lace aglet is obelisk shaped, and the anaconda texture is echoed on the eyelets and leather lace toggle that carries the Roman numeral ‘II.’
The Nike Air Yeezy II in the Platinum and the Black edition will release June 9th at select global retailers in limited numbers.**
