So anyone who has the internet, itunes, cable or just maybe a set of ears know who Kanye West is. In my eyes he is responsible for some of the best mainstream rap/hip-hop albums in recent years.
Here we are going to take a look at all the pictures I’ve seen of his shoe from Nike labeled the “Air Yeezy”, No matter if you believe he deserves to have his own shoe or not this is a pretty dope kick.
From what we can tell is this colorway was made solely for the Glow In The Dark Tour, Kanye’s tour for his recent album “Graduation”. The check and the sole are glow in the dark, as seen in the picture below.
This next picture I grabbed from HypeBeast of the Louis Vuitton Don performing on stage at the Summer Jam for Hot 97′ in light brown/khaki colorway. The is a much simpler colorway than the Glow in the Dark pair.
Next we take a look at a newly released picture taken from a fellow UK blogger, Better Never Than Late. This shows a colorway that I believe could be the first release.
This last picture has just appeared on HighSnobiety via TheShoeGame that shows the best picture of the shoe yet. This shows off a Tan colorway that seems to be the same as the last picture. Looking carefully at the last picture you can see the gray tip along with the red accents around the tongue and Ye wearing the khaki pants. This shows of more detail such as the metal tipped laces and suede toe tip. Shoe game has said they have had the picture for a month or so now and just finally were able to show it off. This maybe because Yeezy wore them in that photo shoot and the pictures just surfaced. Watch the site for hopefully more details on the release and more colorways on this pair.
Say what you will about the man, but I personally think the shoes is something new and original which is what Nike needed to bring to the shoe game. This is the most unique shoe since last year when we had the release of the Spiz’ike which is one of my favorite Nike releases to date. This shoe may have its influences from the Air Jordan line but it’s been infused with Ye’s love of Sci-fi and Street wear. We will all be anticipating the release of the shoe and also looking forward to seeing how it sells.
