An excitable and enterprising sneakerhead has petitioned Nike to release its coveted Air Yeezy 2 silhouette as a general release. Dwayne Gates Jr. has set up a Change.org petition claiming that “Sneakerheads have been killed over these shoes, gone into debt, have killed for these, robbed for these, bought fake versions of them, been robbed for them etc. How long must this occur. Nike can easily just produce a mass amount in each color (platinum, solar red, red October) and solve this problem.” Mr. Gates Jr. added that “It will also help Kanye West who’s been upset about how Nike wouldn’t give him royalties on his shoe deal or how they wouldn’t make his shoe a mass general release. We’ll take one of the two requests.” The petition currently has 5,629 signatures and you can join Dwayne’s emotive fight for justice here.
