Official Nike Air Yeezy 2 AFTERMATH THREAD ----- NO BUYING/SELLING/TRADING!  

post #1 of 19829
Thread Starter 
Platinum Yeezy 2s > Black Yeezy 2s

and its not even close in my book

but I would like to have both

take this with a grain of salt but my homie that works for LeBron during the summer said LeBron and Wade not only got a pair but they got special Yeezy 2 like Kobe. I dont know if that means a special box or a special colorway.

I took it as Ye returning the favor cause Bron gave Ye & Jay special WTT LeBron 9s with jewelry on it when the show came to Miami

Can you imagine a all red Yeezy 2 for the Miami Heat? or a tan/south beach concept representing the sand on the beach?

In my opinion, the IIs stomp the Is to the ground. I had the Zens and really wasn't all that impressed with them then or now. From an aesthetic standpoint, I don't get the Is at all...

I should have good news come Friday or Saturday. I need those Platinums!

Seriously let's try to keep this positive, or at least civil. Let's keep the Sodium levels to a minimum here. There's nothing wrong with a dude winning (the ability to purchase) a pair of Yeezy 2s fairly.

Here is my striking out story.
I was at the Wowsan Nikestore Yeezy 2 release in Seoul. Word was they had gotten about 50 pairs total, but this was the only store in Korea that had gotten them. The plan was to release only 700 raffle tickets starting at 1PM and start the raffle at 7PM. Due to my not living in Seoul, I got there at around 11:40AM only to find a line up about three blocks deep. I line up still because I counted about 400-500 people and thought I had a shot. Unfortunately, they had a large lineup since early and actually had some people camp out for raffle tickets, so they started giving out tickets early to clear the line. Turns out I was more like #900 in line. It was an interesting crowd out there, but still saw a lot of heat on a lot of feet. smiley: nerdsmiley: pimp Sucks that I didn't get a chance, but everything was handled pretty well and done fairly.

The raffle tickets were really nice as well. They were in the shape of a pair of Yeezy 2s and you had to lift the little strap to see your raffle number.

For me, it's the platinum pair over the the black pair even though living in Korea that platinum pair will turn to Iron quickly. From the videos and pictures I've seen, the details show up more on the plats. Personally, I would be able to wear them more often than the black yeezy 2s.

Anyways, I hope to see some nice pics from the other NTers (new and old) who lucked out from NDC soon. I struck out, but it's all good seeing as how there is always another pair on the horizon.

WARNING I AM POSTING A LOT OF PICS... I AM DOING THIS BECAUSE OF SOME MEMBERS REQUESTS. THEY ARE COMPARISON PICS BETWEEN AY1 AND AY2 PLATINUM AND ZENS.... IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE A PAGE FULL OF PICTURES, PLEASE DO NOT EXPAND THE "SPOILER" LINK...

THANKS

Hopefully the following pictures will help some members answer various questions they were asking in the official thread...I attempted to take shots of similar areas on both versions of the AY.  Hope this helps many of you gauge quality and design comparisons a little better. I hope my post will be helpful, entertaining, and informative, if its not, well i tried...

On to the pics...

First we have the Platinums.... imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage Next up the Zens.... imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage Just a couple of group shots... imageimage

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hope you guys enjoyed.

P.S.   I will honestly tell anyone considering dropping MAJOR $$$ on these right now, STOP and wait it out! While the AY2 is IMO a great sneaker, They are not worth nearly as much as they are going for. Have patience and think clearly before spending the 1.5k+ they are going for not. I will be doing exactly that (waiting) before I decide to go after the Solar pair. 

Once again thanks, and I hope this was helpful.

IMO Platinums > Solars by a long shot. Nice to see a good amount of NT got their pairs for retail 
post #14 of 19829
Last thread was straight comedy, like a social experiment, dudes catchin feelings, insulting each other, coming out of the closet, justifying spending a rack and a half; that thread was nuts all over an overpriced shoe that the celebs these cats strive to be like got for free...Nike got some of y'all cats by the knutts over these kicks...the only reason I got them was because they remind me of my other favorite shoe, the Jordan XI I.E. ...anyways, I wish Nike did the right thing for once in its miserable existence post-galaxy foam craze and handle these releases better....

The zens look real nice out there, ima go ahead and say the zens poop all over the platinums with that dark toe piece, very random I know. so subtle yet such a big difference.

If you really want to know, Generaiya can confirm that Wowsan received 80 pairs total. How many ended up to the public, Generaiya does not know, but 80 pairs were their allocation.

where does everyone think prices will end up settling? I can't imagine that many pairs are actually moving at the $2K price point?

We all know and understand the sneaker dynamic of hype + demand = price

Less hype and less of a demand equals less high priced

They are currently going for the 2K to 1.5K range

But give them month to three months, when most NDC resellers get their pairs

And when NT in Chicago does there grand opening and release their, plus surpise stores with pairs

Prices will drop crazy when less and less people settle for paying the 2K to 1.5K range and resellers have to get their pairs off for the next hype release to make more money

Just got my solars in today from NDC, and I'm very happy with them. I might try and pick up some platinums down the road, but if it doesn't happen, I'll be content with just the solars. Solars > Platinums for me in terms of everyday wear/use. I'm always partial to black based colorways because they don't get dirty as easily, and I think they're more versatile. The 3M on the Platinums is a nice little detail, but I still think the Solars have them beat. Either way, don't think you could go wrong with one or the other.

How are they fake? if anything they're legit and theyre scamming you.


btw
someone offered me 1200 + ds grapes, ds sb 9 lebron elites and VNDS wearable 2000 infrareds for my platinums.

damb i'm a bit tempted now, i would probably flip the grapes and brons though. is that trade in my favor?
homeboy that got the DMP, SB8 + 9 and spacejams got me trying to find lots of shoes i want for them.

Has anyone heard of anyone selling just the bag? I want that bag soo bad.
post #29 of 19829
^ I would say that trade is in your favor. If you sell the grapes or Lebrons you should have enough with the 1200 to repurchase the yeezys. Really just depends how clean the infrareds are and how bad you want them

Ah, good to know. I know that some pairs went out to members of Big Bang (big, if not biggest, k-pop group out here) and probably select employees. I figured since A-C list celebrities back in the states got pairs, some were def going out to the K-celebrities.

731balla, those are some beautiful shots. If you take anymore, I'd like to see some side by side shots. So is the glow more intense on the Y2s?
