    Mods I hadn't seen an open thread on these. if there is one, please lock this up.

    we all know via the "celebrities wearing heat" thread in the sneaker showcase that NT is saturated with kanye fans. imo, these shoes are def.different, but i honestly can't see myself rocking these let alone pay the "hefty" price tag these are rumored to have.

    based on the looks, the fact that they are kanye sigs, they are built on the spizike platform, i'm guessing these will retail anywhere from $160-$180. :[that = a pass in my book.

    what do u guys think??



    **EDIT**

    now that i think of it, this should probably be in the nike forum. sorry.

    I wonder if the future of non-athletic collabos will be based off of the success of this release

    Here is what's on this http://sneakernews.com/20...-spring-2009-collection/ link.


    Mar 3 · Nike Air Yeezy - Spring 2009 Collection

    [​IMG]

    If yesterday's new Zen Grey/Light Charcoal Air Yeezy photos have left you hung over from the excitement, you might want to look away from your screen. Ifyou've decided to stick around, sit back and behold the first official batch of Air Yeezy releases. You've already seen the grey version, but now wegive you a great look at the other two colorways. A black/grey/pink and beige/grey/pink version will join the aforementioned Zen Grey pair to round out thefirst leg of Yeezy-mania.

    There are some minor differences on the uppers to differentiate the three sneakers beyond just the colorways. The textured "Y" pattern is used ondifferent sections of all three, and the beige pair uses patent leather on the strap instead. Despite the subtle differences, all three look like nothing elseon the market and will no doubt create a frenzy when they begin to drop this spring. If one or all three are calling your name, be prepared to drop a grip, asthe retail price is expected to be hefty. Stay tuned for the official release details as soon as they are confirmed. via NikeTalk.
