Thanks To Kanye & The Nike Air Yeezy 2, Every Single Sneaker Is Now Red
No other shoe in recent memory has sparked as much buzz as Kanye‘s Nike Air Yeezy 2′s. In the almost 16 months between rumors of a new Yeezy 2 colorway (mentioned by Hypebeast in October 2012) and their surprise release on February 9th, Kanye’s Red Octobers were the subject of more rumors, previews and general press than any other shoe in recent history.
Seeing how inevitably huge a Red October release would be, smart sneaker executives everywhere seemed to all have the exact same thought: “WE MUST MAKE RED SHOES!” and low-and-behold, over those 16 months, every shoe label on the face of the earth dropped an all-red version of their silhouettes, all-in-all there were 21 to be exact.
