Nike Air Yeezy 2 (Black/Solar Red)
After much hype and leaked picture hoopla, with both Kanye and Jay-Z wearing the sneakers at all opportunities, we finally get a good, close-up look at what could possibly outrank the Galaxy Foamposites as the most sought-after sneakers of 2012. The Yeezy 2's glow in the dark soles, snakeskin leather and Torch fabric come as no surprise, but generous hits of Egyptian culture are unexpected (see our Yeezy Feature in Sneaker Freaker Issue 24 for the full story). Start queuing now... they drop June 9. Thanks to Streething, Complex, @Mikeyman14 and Sneaker News for the pics.
