Here’s one situation in which you can indisputably make the claim that Kanye West has sold out: His signature Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” sneaker, after being released on Nike’s online store, sold out in under 10 minutes.
The release comes after Kanye’s highly public and controversial leap from Nike to adidas, and thus the Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” will very likely be the last sneaker Kanye ever associates his name with in conjunction with Nike. Not that a high-profile sneaker like this needed the extra help, but that will probably contribute to the shoe’s appreciation in value going forward.
If you weren’t lucky enough to snag any Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” sneakers during yesterday’s sale, you’ll have to console yourself with images of the sneaker in the gallery at the top of the page. And you might get lucky if you check eBay here for a (relatively) affordable pair.
