Kanye West Yeezy 2

Could these sneakers be yours someday?

Remember how we mentioned that Kanye West's electrifying performance on Saturday Night Live might also be a subtle debut for a new colorway of his Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneaker? Just in case you were too distracted by the incredible performances, let us refresh your memory: after his debut of "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead" on the famous late night show, Kanye enthusiasts began to, as we do, unpack his performance look. All-black everything gave way to a pair of bright red kicks that... wait a second, those are Yeezy 2s! But we've never seen the all-red colorway before! And thus, yet another Yeezus-related mystery was born. Today, sneaker heads around the world are abuzz with speculation that the great and powerful Ye may be planning to play rap game Willy Wonka in 1000 copies of his new album, Yeezus, by giving those lucky fans a chance to purchase the shoes. Intrepid British sneaker collector/blogger Jsus Sneaks got his hands on a pair of the all-red kicks, which are pictured complete with the signature Yeezy falcon head and an embossed box (we think), stamped with "June 18, 2013" and an individual number. We think we see where this is going.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
