No doubt by now you’re familiar with the Nike Air Yeezy II. But until now, you’ve likely only see the Kanye West signature sneaks on the feet of celebs and VIPs. Starting in June, you’ll have the chance to rock them yourself. Nike’s global release for the Yeezy IIs is set for this summer, bringing the late ’80s basketball-inspired, Kanye-molded kicks to the streets.

The Yeezy II mixes leather, nylon and nubuck built on a slim fit and a lower collar than the original Yeezy. Plus, the loop straps have hieroglyphics that spell out ‘YZY.’ Per Nike, the Platinum/Black colorway will release June 9 at “select global retailers in limited numbers.”
