Just like the recent hoopla over the Nike release of the Foamposite Galaxy, the masses are clamoring for more information on the upcoming release of the Air Yeezy 2 line. As of now, no one knows for sure when they will release, although it’s rumored to be a late March 2012 release. Even Nike has failed to give us much information about the new Air Yeezys, instead choosing to keep true to form and stay mum on any details or specifics right up until release date. I’m the type of guy who likes to know everything I can about this kind of stuff so I tend to get miffed when I find Nike being so tight lipped.
So like most of you I’ve spent a fair amount of time trying to find what information I can, and aside from from some images of the Yeezys that Ye himself has been sporting there’s not much to be found. I did come across one article over at Squidoo titled simply “Air Yeezy 2“. It seems to have a good mix of photos, news and information and is generally a good read for anyone wanting to know more about the Air Yeezy 2 lineup, which according to the article I referenced there will be a total of 5 colorways in this release- 3 in the U.S., 1 for Asia and 1 for Europe.
I am suspecting that this release will be as hot and chaotic as the recent release of the Galaxy Foamposites, but given Nike’s lack of information we just don’t know. I would like to know where they’ll be released (will any online vendors get some Yeezys to stock), what their retail price will be, etc… So like you I’ll keep searching for answers and will post what I find. If you’re planning on getting a pair of these hot sneakers plan on having some cash and plenty of time to camp for them.
