Two nights ago Kanye West pulled out the Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers at Coachella during his performance. Unless you had front row seats, you probably didn’t catch great visuals of the sneaker. Well less than 24 hours later, Kanye’s peeps graced us with teasing preview images. The only question left to answer is were you feeling them as much as the original Nike Air Yeezy? The construction of the shoe reveals an Air Tech Challenge II midsole with an upper similar to the original Nike Air Yeezy. But the back is where the make up changes. Many bloggers complained that the Nike Air Yeezy 2 are displayed as a bulky spin off to the originals Nike Air Yeezy appearing to come off cheap looking. Ooh La La will let you be the judge.

Well, Nike SB is preparing to honor Lady Liberty through this Nike SB Dunk High Premium. But it doesn’t stop their, Nike SB went all out for this creation. Nike has given consumers an actual reason to wear these kicks. With enough normal wear and tear the iconic green color will fade into a dark copper color. My guess you will be able to peal off the green in case you don’t want to wait until these get beat before you see the copper. The shoes are expected to release next month as part of the Nike SB February 2011 Collection.

Dark Obsidian side panels, collars, and eyestays, makes a great contrast to it’s varsity red swoosh. Look out for the “Un-Papa Bear” to hit Nike SB retailers in December 2010. More images below via SN
