Kanye West Debuts New Color of Nike Air Yeezy 2 At The MTV VMAs
Kanye and Jay-Z were welcomed late additions to the MTV VMAs’ set-list, the annual award show that has the daunting task of outdoing itself each and every year. It was announced Saturday that ‘Ye and Hov would be performing, and the Internets were instantaneously ablaze with fodder about which song the duo would undertake and when. The two hit the stage early, and the attention immediately shifted to Kanye’s kicks—well, at least my attention did. It was clear Kanye was wearing a high-top pair of Nike’s with a strap, and after assessing the replay in the booth, the ruling on the field was that they were a brand new pair of Nike Air Yeezy 2s. Rumors and preview pics have been circulating about Kanye’s sophomore effort with Nike for months, and last night added to the hype. We now know that there is at least one pair of light gray Nike Air Yeezy IIs in circulation, but sneaker heads will have to wait on a price point and release date. Peruse through the pics and decide early if the Yeezy deux is definite scoop since getting your hands on a pair is sure to require proper planning.
