On le savait déjà, mais maintenant on a la confirmation de Nike, les Nike Air Yeezy 2, coloris Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum et Black/Solar Red, sortiront le 9 juin dans le monde entier, dans une sélection de boutiques, en quantité très limitée.

Nike nous présente également les images officielles de la Nike Air Yeezy 2. Découvrez les photos sans plus tarder dans la suite.

Les sneakers mélangent des matériaux premium comme du cuir, du nylon ballistic nylon et du nubuck doux. Les détails qu'on trouve sur la paire sont inspirés des civilisations anciennes comme par exemple les hiéroglyphes situés sur le strap qui signifient ‘YZY’.

Forging a new form of sport craftsmanship, the Nike Air Yeezy II blends classic Nike court breakthroughs with the performance and aesthetic demands of bringing hype to a crowd of thousands.

A primal, tactile approach to technology runs throughout every element of the Nike Air Yeezy II. Armored animalistic forms imbue the upper. Hand skived anaconda textured leather quarter panels are embellished with a debossed Vac-Tech Nike Swoosh. The molded rear is sculpted with a reptilian inspired spike, while an engineered strap with scaled down spikes was developed to offer a greater sense of symmetry and lock down.

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.’

The Nike Air Yeezy II in the Platinum and the Black edition will release June 9th at select global retailers in limited numbers.

Nike Stadium Paris recevra les deux coloris. On parle également d'Opium et de Colette qui devraient recevoir quelques paires.

Le prix de la Nike Air Yeezy 2: 290€.
