As sneakerheads everywhere know, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 is perhaps one of the most mimicked designs in the history of sneakers. Whether utilizing the Yeezy 2’s colorways – like the Nike Air Max 1 FB “Black/Mint/Pink Flash” from earlier this year – or taking design cues – like the recently-released Nike ACG Trainerendor – Nike has used the Yeezy 2 as inspiration many times since the shoe’s release last June. That trend looks to continue next year, with the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Black/Solar Red” aka “Yeezy”, set to release in the Summer of 2014.
The shoes feature a black suede and leather upper, with hits of solar red around the signature Swoosh logo on the shoe’s sides; the lining is also done in solar red, giving the kicks a much-needed pop of color. The kicks sit atop a black midsole/mint outsole combination, with black laces finishing things off. While the “Yeezy” inspiration is obvious from a glance due to the colorway, Nike takes the theme a step further with the use of a scale-like print throughout the upper, meant to mimic the scales of the Air Yeezy 2. While we’ve seen many shoes ape the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Solar Red” colorway, as well as the use of snakeskin or a scale effect, we’ve yet to see a shoe use both the colorway and scales in tandem, which really gives the shoes that “Yeezy 2” look that sneakerheads the world over still crave.
