Kanye West's "Red Octobers" Air Yeezy 2 Sneakers Arriving Next Week
Published Dec 20, 2013Get ready for more shoe game fooforaw from Kanye West. The rapper recently revealed that he's entered a partnership with Adidas, but before he cuts the cord with Nike he'll deliver one last pair of dunks. An all-red variation of last year's Air Yeezy 2's are set to go on sale next week.
The news about the so-called "Red Octobers" was broken today (December 20) in a tweet from Foot Locker, who posted:
UPDATE: The Red Nike Air Yeezy 2 will be available ONLINE ONLY on December 27th at 8am EST.— Foot Locker (@footlocker) December 20, 2013
If you're into nabbing the rap star's signature shoes, you may want to act quick, as the launch of the Air Yeezy 2's in 2012 had certain pairs of the sneakers selling for thousands of dollars.
As that tweet explains, head to Foot Lockers website on December 27 at 8 a.m. EST to grab a pair.
The shoes will be the last piece of product West designs for shoe giant Nike. West had previously explained that he had difficulties with the company, citing issues with CEO Mark Parker.
"They tried to make it as small as possible," West had previously noted. "Mark Parker even talked shit, talking about, 'We don't even know why people like the Yeezys."
Earlier this year, it was revealed that West had aligned himself to three-stripes sporting company Adidas to deliver a line of street wear, set to be unveiled for September 2014.
Yesterday (December 19), during an interview on Chicago's Stylz & Roman radio show, West noted of the switch: "I've been under the wings, playing it the right way at Nike and everything but I've wanted to create more and not been able to create more for no reason."
"I have a new product partner with Adidas. I just got back from Germany yesterday and it was one of the greatest creative days of my life," he added.
