Last Friday, February 9, marked the fourth anniversary of the most memorable Nike Air Yeezy II “Red October” silhouette. Just days following the commemoration is a new announcement by TMZ that professed Kanye West is looking to once again nab the exclusive rights to the shoe’s moniker.

‘Ye initially made attempts to trademark the “Red October” imprint back in 2013, but fell short due to incomplete paperwork. West officially cut ties with Nike that very same year, lending his design abilities to adidas to produce a slew of sneaker iterations with the YEEZY 500 “Blush” as the latest model.

If West successfully gets the exclusive rights to the “Red October” label, the multi-talent will be able to produce apparel, headwear, accessories, and more under the name. In case you’re wondering, a pair of Nike Air Yeezy II “Red October” kicks is currently available for purchase on Flight Club for approximately $6,500 USD.

Stay tuned for updates regarding the trademark.
