First Look: Kanye West’s Air Yeezy II

November 03, 2011



Kanye West got slammed for attempting high fashion design in Paris, but something tells us his brand new Air Yeezy II will be more of a crowd-pleaser. The number one rule of turning a sneaker into a collector's item is to mix idiosyncratic, borderline-wacky design elements into the finished product, and Kanye clearly has a Coco Chanel mastery of that: Hussein Chalayan-like spikes, 1990s shoelace strap and neon colorways guarantee this shit will sell out in a second. No word on release dates yet, but after a rough September, it looks like a fashion success for Yeezy. (via Stereogum)
