The Air Yeezy marked one of the first times Nike ever allowed a non-athlete to design a signature sneaker – cementing Kanye West as a certifiable tastemaker. After getting teasers here and there, solid images of the Air Yeezy 2 in wolf grey/pure platinum have hit the web. Aesthetically, the most striking difference from the original is the hard ridges that run along the back of the shoe, somewhat similar to the recently released “Urban Swift” by Hussein Chalayan for PUMA. The shoe also seems to take inspiration from ancient Egyptian mythology, as the logo on the tongue is of the mythological god Horus, which Kanye famously made into an oversized gold pendant. Performance Torch fabric is used for the tongue, while the rest of the shoe is comprised of nylon mesh, suede and snake skin leather. Other details include glow-in-the-dark soles, a leather lace toggle and chunky metal lace tips. The shoes will be released at Limited Edt Vault, Singapore, as well as other stockists across the world on April 13, 2012.
