Before Kanye West‘s recent move to adidas, the outcome of his highly anticipated all-red Nike Air Yeezy IIwas often in question after numerous delays. While some murmured that the move from Kanye to adidas effectively shut the doors on any release, Footlocker recently Tweeted a succinct message stating that the shoes will indeed drop online via the retailer on December 27 at 8 a.m. EST. Given the online nature of the release, could this drop follow in the same footsteps of other bot-dominated online releases where few people actually have opportunity to purchase fairly? Additionally, no pricing has been stated. Expect further messages from around the globe to follow suit.
UPDATE: The Red Nike Air Yeezy 2 will be available ONLINE ONLY on December 27th at 8am EST.
