Kanye West’s recent performance on Saturday Night Live was a real conversation-starter for several reasons. For one, he played two tracks from his upcoming album, believed to be titled, Yeezus. But something else caught the eye of sneakerheads watching the broadcast: He was wearing new red/red Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers.
The new red/red colorway of the Air Yeezy 2, the first new colorway since summer 2012, was also seen in the recent Instagram post from Kim Kardashian that also contained the cover art for Yeezus – you can check it out for yourself in the picture above.
Release details on the new red/red Air Yeezy 2 sneakers aren’t backed up by any official information as of now. But some are speculating that the sneakers’ release will be timed to coincide with the new album; we’ll just have to wait and see.
