Nike took a move right from Beyonce’s album release playbook when it did a surprise release of it’s new Yeezy 2 “Red October” sneakers a few days ago right in the Nike.com online store. As you may already know there was news about footlocker and other retailers cancelling the release of the much talked about kicks not to mention the news of Kanye already working with Adidas on new kicks. We all thought it was a done deal for the “Red October” but BAM, They’re here!! And the best part is since these were released online……by surprise, we don’t have to hear reports about people waiting in long lines and fighting each other just to get their hands on these $245 kicks. Anyways what do you think about these bad boy’s? Would you cop em? BTW they sold out in 11 mins and now I’ve see em on ebay selling for $6700…Crazy Sun!
