Sorry new rappers, the Yeezy 2s will continue to have more buzz than your mixtapes until at least July 4th. With only 48 hours left in the countdown until the first pairs are officially released, sneakerhead fever is striking even the average Nike customer. Previously, we recapped the first round of tastemakers to stunt on Instagram with their “friends and family” pairs. But things have gotten pretty out of hand since then. Did you see TMZ’s ridiculous story about the way over priced pair on Ebay? If you ain’t got $80,000 to spend on sneakers, try Footlocker’s online raffle, it’s the safest bet. Honestly, it’s cool to collect kicks but I want to see photos of people actually putting their Yeezy 2s to good use. I loved when Maestroe made a video of himself skating in the Yeezy 1s around the time they dropped. Sneakers belong on your feet, kid!
