The Nike Air Yeezy by Kanye West

Take a deep breath, pause for a moment, and exhale. You can now get excited. Finally, 6 months after Kanye's memorable Grammy performance, we've finally got some good info and shots of this recently proclaimed legendary sneaker. Inspired by the big homie's love for high top designer footwear, out came this beastly machine. While originally conceptualized atop a Dunk midsole, the final version of the Air Yeezy features the familiar shared tooling from the Air Jordan III and Air Revolution, as well as the collar molding seen in the Air Jordan V. In good fashion and in honor of his highly acclaimed "Glow In The Dark Tour", the model’s outsole actually glows in the dark, similar to a common glow stick. When held near light, the green glowing hue radiates afterward out from under the shoe. Oh, I can just imagine beastin' my fellow breakfast table brother and sisterin in the laser tag arena! But sadly, for now, this shoe will remain a sample in Kanye's size 12 and is not planned for release. (sighs)

Btw, shout out to Sole Collector for the long awaited drop. More breakfast after the jump.
