Kanye West’s Giveaway: Win A Pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red Sneakers
It’s Yeezy season alright. Last week, rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian welcomed their daughter into the world and in the same week Kanye’s new album “Yeezus” was also released. Kanye, in high spirits, tweeted earlier to give away 50 pairs of his collaboration sneaker, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red on his site kanyewest.com.
The Air Yeezy sneakers are probably one of the most hyped up sneakers. They were first released in 2009, the Air Yeezy 1 came in three colors: Zen Grey, Black/Pink and Tan. Last year the second installment was released with only two editions: Solar Red and Pure Platinum. Everyone was wondering if there was ever going to be a third colorway on the way to the public. After months of rumors, fans can now be reassured.
Kanye chose an all red colorway for his third release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneaker. Yeezy has been spotted on stage several times wearing the bold sneakers. The shoe features the same elements of the first two pairs, except for the unique red glow-in-the-dark soles and different side panels. The first two editions had a snake pattern side panel, but the red version will have new material.
There is no official release date yet for the Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red, but they will be expected to drop in October this year at the expected retail price of $245 USD. Only 1000 pairs will be released worldwide. The release will definitely shake up the sneaker community.
Unfortunately to the rest of the world, the giveaway is only available to US residents. It will only go on for three weeks from 24 June 2013 to 14 July 2013. Every week there will be a drawing, with the first and second week 20 prizes to be awarded, and the final week 10 prizes making it a total of 50 pairs.
