From the ground up

After several teasers, we can announce today the official release date of the upcoming Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red/Red colorway. It looks like the much anticipated fourth colorway of the Kanye West-designed sneaker will hit retailers on June 18, 2013. The date comes as no surprise, because the rapper will be releasing his next album, Yeezus, on the very same day.

The Nike Air Yeezy 2 comes with a red suede and red nylon upper, also featuring a matching red glow-in-the-dark outer sole. The above image does not only hint at the release date, but also tells us that the sneaker will be limited to overall 1,000 pairs globally.

More news on the release as we come across more information.

UPDATE: Nike has confirmed this release date as inaccurate. The shoe will release later in 2013.
