  1. Actually, I think Tupac is the greatest rapper alive.

    Yeah, I said it.

    These shoes are OK, and they will do well, but only because of a years worth of hype.

  2. Big Nate—-oh my yes these shits are already being worn by my barber ahahha, i was like yo those arent even a colorway and they aint even out yet, hes just like im taking orders. They aight, the price on these will keep me far away. Already got my 11/12s preordered, no lineup for me, good luck to all collectors with that

  3. I wish Nike would can crap like this and focus more on improving Jordan brand. By improving I mean:

    Axe everything that isn't actually an "Air Jordan". No more hybrid/take down/cheap crap.

    Just give us one new Air Jordan per year in a couple of colorways. Throw in a handful of accurate retros too.

    No more limited BS. The price of the shoes should be limiting enough. People shouldn't have to pleasure the genitals of boutique shoe store employees to get a damn Air Jordan.

    Make the quality of the shoes equal to what they were in the early ninties. They did it back then, so someone should know how the hell to do it.

    Get rid of 99% of all Jordan Brand clothing.

  4. im gonna get a kick out of folks co-signing these JUST BECAUSE THEIR KANYES SHOES! come on people..just like some of you co sign EVERY JORDAN that comes out..haha…be real bout it…kanye one of my fav artist but i wont be rockin these..sorry

  5. People Sweat these there just a bad idea from the start it u want to make a shoe a hit make a shoe dont use other shoes and combine them ….

  6. Its a love hate thing. On the one hand I cant wait to cop but on the other hand there going to be so many foofs with the FAKE ones.

  7. i HOPE all hell breaks loose dammit… when's the last time something major hit the sneaker game like this, the DMPs? i'm gonna camp out and cop as many pairs as i can and sell the extras. maybe this will revive the dead sneaker game and my dead pockets… LOL

  8. these joints are dougie sickest 3s must cop for those js freaks out dur and the glow in the dark joint is poppin

  9. These are some air jordan 2s Tommy Cat Attack like damn do you no anything because the first pic is of a AJ2 original colors but besides him ima def cop a pair of these 2s.

  10. Honestly, I think these are just OK. They've got some elements I really like and some things that I'm not crazy about. I'm thinking that if Kanye's name wasn't with them there would be waaay less hype.

  11. Revive the Game? Really? These are nothing more than a product meeting a current fashion trend! These will not have transcendent value unless they are an extremely limited release. This shoe is clearly rooted in the Supra high-top revival movement… and it too shall pass!

  12. Kanyes name alont will be the only reason these sale, if they werent dubbed the Yeezy's they would hit outlets in an instant.

  13. I LOVE DESE SHOES!!!!GOTTA GET EM.

    CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME WAT COLOR 12s IS GONNA B N DA PACK? I WANT IT NO MATTER WAT, I JUS WANNA KNW.

  14. Overhyped and prolly overpriced 2, & for what a design i see alot from nike they got what seems like the jordan 5 tongue and jordan 3 base. nuthin original at all.

  15. Why hate?

    most people I know saw the shoes before they even knew they were kanye west shoes

    and still want them so why is everyone saying that….

  16. yo i have been waiting for eva for these i heard they were comming out this Decmber and i was planning on getting those instead of the CDP but now i can get both !!!!

  17. Vante your statement holds no weight because the only reason people saw them in the first place is because Kanye had them on during a performance and everyone fell in love.

  18. Kanye 2tha was harder on his first album. Although all his albums have been good, I think they've all also progressively gotten worse. Typical trend with fame… Nevertheless he has remained a style GIANT! I personally like the look of these kicks, its no surprise he helped design them. Ironically, Kanye having involvement in this shoe is the only thing that turns me OFF about it. I despise the thought of conforming to a product just because some Hollywood mogul is endorsing it.

    ___________________________________________________

    Def a must cop! i would love to own a pair any color..

  20. tycoonkicks.com HAVE THE FAKEST SHOES EVER. YOU PAY A CERTAIN AMOUNT AND GET A FREE PAIR OF ONES? tycoonkicks.com sells fake air force ones that have been painted on. AND THOSE LOOK LIKE SHIT

  21. kool…LIL wayne…get the F*** out of here, "CA-double S I D Y I BECAME THE BEST AFTER B.I.G. DIED…" but yea kanye is the man,amd his shoes are sexy..come on the three bottom got me already…ima coop…=[]-***!SNEAKERHEADZ UNITE!***

  22. These shits are tough… not only because their Kanye's shoe the design on em is sick. Way better then fucking the jordan brand crap they pump out. All yall stop hating cause its the haters that cop em and dick ride talking bout they was up on it b4 anyone else lol.

  23. The shoes are hot!!! Kanye has swagg and his music is dope, so Nike couldn't go wrong with that deal. Haters cut it out, you wastin' your energy! Find some real shit to focus on.

  24. One of the hottest joints in Nike shoe history. I live in Chicago and I seen GLC and my mans Pen from Project Fr3sh wearing them and they look better in person. GOOD LOOK YE!!!

  25. the only people who have given positive feedback on these shoes are kanye jock riders. the shoes are even worse than his lame, vocoder new songs. i aint mad a nike, they are just trying to make loot during these tough times. but i am mad at all these wack kids who have hyped up kanye and his wack career enough to make nike give him his own shoe. hip hop is dead!! next t-pain will get his own shoe or even lil wayne.

  26. my cousins boy is deep with kanye crew and he already gotz a pair and dem shits fell apart after the first week. the strap ripped off and the sole was crackin. yo, those are stupid. beware!

  27. maybe the fell apart cuz your cousins boy doesnt really know anyone in kanyes camp and bought fakes saying they were yeezy's nieve mother fucker

  28. This will be the best selling show next year from NIKE, hands down. Jordan Brand is all but over and all these generic forms of shoes they have failed to give some life to, are simply a waste of advertisement, quality structure and dough, but then again, NIKE can afford all of it. Ef K.W., I'll be getting each pair, I mean, I'm 33, how can I forget the AJ III's in Junior H.S.? It brings back so very many memories, but, to each it's own… FREEDOM FOREVER!!!

    -L'EROE

  29. Big up to Noodles! Hip Hop is done, so wack now. kanye got nice style, which is why I like these, but as an mc, i've had enough of him. Along with Weezy, T-Pain, Akon, and every other weak, synthesized, bullshit rapper.

  30. Diddybop u need to STFU.

    kanye's music iz def the shit breh. iono wat ur talkin bout.

    nd dem sneakz r FIRE cant wait till dey drop so i can cop sum.

    diddybop u jus a damn HATER.

  31. i agree dat most ppl only gettin hyped up couse they are kanye's shoes… niggas are already talkin bout wearin dem to prom!i dont think dey dat worthy but dey kool though

  32. I THINK IF KANYE NAME WASNT ON IT THAN THAT SHOE WOULDNT BE SHIT=CAUSE TO TELL U THA…TRUTH IT AINT ALL THAT HOT!!BUT THATS JUST ME.

  33. WACK ASS FUCK, JUST LIKE KANYE. NIGGA SINGLE HANDEDLY KILLED HIP HOP AND NOW WANTS TO DESTROY OUR CULTURE.

  34. The NEW word on "the street" is that the exact release day will be none other than April 1st… No foolin'…:))

    You heard it HERE first, peace…

  35. iight let me skool u guys on kicks these kicks r iight but the reason that they r "alright" and not "ugly" is because kanye has his own style and nobody can bet him because kanye does his own thing and dresses different so thse r differnent from just some jays or nikes cuz there different but, i give props to my man kanye for doin his thing and not copping every other rapper ot there he does he own thing and he got his own "swag" some people call lil wayne the swagga king but No way i call kanye the swagga king

  36. I'm not dissing Kanye as I am a fan and enjoy his music. But these shoes, sigh. Why would you waste money on these? It's like going to a strip club on a monday afternoon. Is there a dance here today who hasn't had a C-section? Please use your money wisely, like maybe on real shoes or you will get VD.

  37. Wow, I feel a disturbance in the Force, theres just 2 much hate in our hip-hop gen right now. Let that man do him, imma do me, an the rest a ya'll make ya own shoes. Damn I hate haters.

  38. Could ov been a banging design with few alterations.

    however diffrent strokes for different folks.

    the nu rave crew would love some white and flourecent color ways.

    krae
