Nike Air "Yeezy" (Official Pics)


The Kanye West x Nike collabo has been talked about for the past year, and they have finally been confirmed for a Spring release. These are the first official colorways dropping. The first in April 2009 will be the Zen Grey/LT Charcoal color way, followed this will be followed in May by a Black/Black version, and in June with the final Net/Net color way. No word on the price, but expect long lines and longer price tags.

From Nike:

These performance attributes have been meticulously wrapped in premium full grain leather uppers and adorned with original design details that are uniquely Kanye and identifiably Nike. The remastered Nike Air Assault outsole is treated to glow-in-the-dark properties and will illuminate when the light is low. The forefoot support strap is premium grade patent leather and is of no-stitch construction. Clean seams are used throughout except for a premium suede toe wrap feature with visible stitch detail. Emblazoned across the Air Yeezy is an exclusive “Y” repeat pattern, as either a debossed or lasered detail, which takes inspiration from the Jordan brands iconic Elephant print material. This graphic treatment was developed by West and Smith to pay tribute not only to the name of the shoe and it’s co-creator, but also to the various moments in history that spurred West’s initial inspiration for the Nike Air Yeezy.
