Hey all, one of the most difficult sneakers to get your hands on is of course the Yeezy 350 Boost from adidas and this weekend’s upcoming release of the “moonrock” color way should be one of the hardest to date. Luckily Barneys (who will be selling the shoe is giving everyone the opportunity to have a chance to grab one with their online raffle) its pretty easy to do and you can sign up through the link on their FB page. Best of Luck if your hoping to cop!!
I was in attendance last night as Under Armour unveiled their newest sneaker the “Curry One” last night in NYC. The shoe is the first in a signature line for number one all star vote-getter Steph Curry. The New Campaign “The Book Of Will” debuts this weekend during the NBA All Star game but Ive’ got a sneak peak for you right now.
Not much to say here. We all knew it was coming and today adidas confirmed it officially by allowing fans to sign up for the update that will notify them when the Kanye West’s newest sneaker will be available. Adidas says will be in the next few weeks and word is well see the sneakers debut during New York Fashion Week most likely on February 12th.
You can sign up HERE right now but be aware adidas’ servers are already having trouble handling the traffic.
Adidas announced today that they released a brand new app called adidasconfirmed, which seems to basically be a reservation system where you will be able to reserve yourself a pair of the brand new Kanye West Yeezi and other upcoming releases.
The app seems simple enough. You reserve your pair through the app and then pick up at the local participating adidas retailer. The only catch seems to be that this initial Yeezi release will only take place within NYC’s 5 boroughs leaving fans outside of the city out in the cold for this huge sneaker drop.
The app bases things on location so it definitely sucks for me as I live literally 5 minutes from Manhattan but according to the app (see above pic) I am “Not in the Zone”
I’m a sucker for Kanye West. The man just knows how to make good music. Here’s Mr. West and Sir Paul helping create a beautiful song with Rihanna from her upcoming album. You gotta check this one out.
So yesterday, we all saw the unexpected drop of the “Red October” Yeezy 2’s from Nike. No announcement, No warning…just a tweet and then all hell broke loose. Folks who swore they had no interest were fumbling to get online at a chance to own this enigma of a sneaker for retail price. In a quick 11 minutes, the dust had settled and the Yeezys and Kanye’s time at Nike were officially done. It was a crazy few moments and for what its worth it was a fun few moments. I tried and failed but it’s expected with so many people clamoring for a pair.
What happen after it is what really boggles my mind. Nike ID announced that they would be releasing something “UNREAL” today on their twitter page. To anyone who follows sneakers (pretty much everyone who was going crazy for the Yeezys yesterday) it was obvious from their post and the graphics pattern in the image they tweeted the release would be nothing more than the “NOLA GUMBO” all star options available of some of their shoes. I assumed anyone would realize this, but of course the internet is where idiocy thrives and here came the posts that Nike would have a limited Yeezy ID today or maybe a Jordan retro ID available. Has everyone lost the minds? It’s crazy how desperate people have become and how they just couldn’t accept they missed their chance for something rare.
Of course as I expected, NIKE ID tweeted out their “unreal” reveal and it was nothing more than the GUMBO designs. It looks fun to play with, as there are plenty of new options and choices including several new glow in the dark sole options. I recommend you go check it out but calm down before you head over. You were never getting ID versions of Yeezys today.
