after months of delayed releases, NIKE officially launched the long-awaited ‘air yeezy II red october’ as a surprise, instantly selling out 11 minutes after being announced via the @nikestore twitter page. designed by artist kanye west, the shoe features a molded rear sculpted reptilian-influenced spike, locked down by an engineered strap to offer a greater sense of symmetry. the ‘air yeezy II red october’s’ have been developed in an all red colorway, referencing the design of the ‘NIKE air tech challenge II tennis shoe outsole’, celebrating the NIKE cross training silhouettes with the addition of the molded forefoot strap.

like the molded rear, the exterior quarter panels also feature a series of miniature spikes, replacing the hand skived anaconda leather quarter panels from the originally produced ‘nike air yeezy II’ from 2012.

  • Glad to see Kanye West finally getting design press for this. Regardless of what people may think about the man, the design is arguably one of the most iconic shoes in history. Please never stop designing.
