Sneaker enthusiasts eagerly awaiting the official launch of the Nike Air Yeezy II will be thrilled to know the product has arrived in South Africa and it’s not easy landing a pair.
The much anticipated global launch of the Nike Air Yeezy II tomorrow will see sneaker enthusiasts from around the world queuing to be the first to purchase a pair of the most sought-after sneakers.
The Nike Air Yeezy II, a collaboration between Nike and Kanye West, blends classic Nike court breakthroughs with the performance and aesthetic demands of bringing hype to a crowd of thousands.
Bringing the inspiration forward from the late 1980′s basketball foundation of the original Nike Air Yeezy, the II is built on the Nike Air Tech Challenge II tennis shoe outsole and celebrates iconic Nike Cross Training silhouettes with the addition of the molded forefoot strap.
There’s absolute function at the Air Yeezy II’s core. Unnecessary padding was eliminated, and the foot-hugging tongue and plush collar are both comfortable and breathable. Fit was essential to the design with the goal to make the shoe slimmer than the original by tailoring it to Kanye West’s foot. The collar was also lowered to allow for greater movement.
An obsessive approach to materials results in a luxurious mix of leather, rugged ballistic nylon, and soft nubuck. Concealed but opulent details reference ancient civilizations, including a loop strap with hieroglyphics that spell out ‘YZY.’ Each screw on lace aglet is obelisk shaped, and the anaconda texture is echoed on the eyelets and leather lace toggle that carries the Roman numeral ‘II.’
Local sneaker enthusiasts will have a once-off opportunity to own a pair of the Nike Air Yeezy II, which will be available exclusively at Shelflife Store in Cape Town tomorrow. To be eligible for the exclusive opportunity to own a pair of these limited edition shoes, enthusiasts must enter the online RSVP queuing system which goes live today.
