Polls: Air Yeezy I vs. Air Yeezy II

Certainly one of the most talked about shoes of the year, the anticipation building up to the second Air Yeezy 2 was arguably only rivaled by the pair’s predecessor — the first Air Yeezy. While both shoes definitely showcase similarities and shared aesthetics, the recent unveiling and release announcement of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 reflects an impressive design that mimics its designer’s stylistic evolution; a progression characterized by heavy scale-laden panels, a glow-in-the-dark outsole, and pseudo-posterior fins. To those who were fond of the specifications to the first installment in the Air Yeezy pantheon, the Air Yeezy 2 is either a well-executed second iteration or perhaps a let down. On the other hand, if you did not like the oversized and heightened aesthetic of the first pair, maybe the Air Yeezy 2 is a good change and something that will get you on board with the hype — that is if you can find a way to get your hands on them. Which do you like more, the Air Yeezy I or Air Yeezy II?

Looking back at our last post in which we asked, “Do You Buy Art?” the majority of people responded with “Yes,” which held 63% of the vote, while 37% stated “No.”
