Slimmer and sleeker than the Air Yeezy 1, this pair focuses on fit and function by tailoring it to Kanye West’s foot. Tennis, training, and texture inspire the Air Yeezy 2, as conveyed on the Tech Challenge II sole, molded forefoot strap, and hand skived anaconda panel. References to ancient civilization provide detail and history in the form of hieroglyphics on the loop strap and leather lace toggle that carries the Roman numeral ‘II’. After months of anticipation, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 has an official drop date. Both the “Platinum” and Black/Pink colorway are slated to drop in the US and worldwide on June 9th at select retailers in limited numbers.
