Has the Wait for the Yeezy 2 Really Been That Long?

Has the Wait for the Yeezy 2 Really Been That Long?

Late last night, a Nike spokesperson confirmed to Complex that the Air Yeezy 2 is scheduled to release in June. While we now have two more months to plot our pickup plans, this also means more waiting. But has the wait really been that long? For context, let’s look back at the original Nike Air Yeezy. On February 10th, 2008, Kanye debuted the then-unknown and unnamed model onstage at the Grammy Awards. Shortly after the unveiling, Kanye commented on the ‘mystery Nikes’ and later confirmed them as the Air Yeezy. He spent the spring and summer of 2008 sporting samples during his Glow in the Dark Tour and festival run. The “Zen Grey” makeup would later lead off the launch, releasing on April 4th, 2009. For those keeping score at home, that was a span of 419 days , breaking down to one year, one month and 25 days. Let’s move forward to the sequel.
