Where Art Thou Air Yeezy 2?
You know there’s a problem when your mom asks if you got the Air Yeezys and you reply with a blank stare. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Air Yeezy 1 and agreed with J-Swift on many of his points on the epic roasting of the first generation Yeezys (click here for a recap). After hearing the rumors and catching a few rare glimpses of the AY2s online, I was more than pleased with the upgraded design.
Unlike the groups of people that camped out for weeks to be the first in line to grab a pair, there’s no chance I would sacrifice a) my job, b) My pride. I’m not an ignorant guy but if I camp out for 2 weeks and still end up with no Yeezys, then the person who got the last pair in front of me had better be escorted by the military. The only thing just as important as getting the AY2 is your escape route.
Then there’s that pair on ebay that sold for $90k. Again, there’s no way I’m taking out a second mortgage on a pair of kicks that will eventually be a mere $50-$100 when the asian connects master the mould and start pumping out the bootlegs in every colorway. For $90k I would’ve booked Kanye to perform N**gas in Paris in my backyard and then asked for the ones on his feet while he and I sit on mom’s plastic wrapped couch in the living room.
Needless to say, Nike and Kanye have have successfully created enough envy for those that missed out on getting a pair this round. The beauty of the sneaker culture is that there will always be another highly anticipated sneaker around the corner. So lets get the rumors started about the AY3 in 3,2,1 and go!
