UPDATE: Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Red October’ IS Releasing On December 27 (KICKS)
Twitter was ablaze Friday morning with news of a release date for the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October,” pulled via Foot Locker’s online release calendar, with December 27 the apparent drop date for the highly anticipated Kanye West kicks. But as of this moment, the Yeezy 2s are no longer on Foot Locker’s calendar. Sorry, sneakerheads. You’ll have to keep waiting. We reached out to Foot Locker for clarification, but haven’t heard back yet. Complicating matters for Kanye, of course, is that he recently parted ways with Nike, and inked a deal with adidas. Stay tuned for updates!
UPDATE (2:05 p.m.): Foot Locker has confirmed that the Yeezy 2 WILL be releasing, online only, on December 27.
