Release date for the new colorway of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 is not June 16th. We’re planning to release it later this year.— Heidi Burgett (@heidiburgett) May 30, 2013

When trying to stay on top of hot sneaker rumors, it's always best when you get news directly from the brands. With speculation running rampant about a possible June release of the All-Red Air Yeezy 2, Nike PR Director Heidi Burgett clears it up for us.
According to Burgett, the red Yeezy 2 is indeed releasing, but not in mid-June as it's being rumored. Instead, look for the drop sometime later this year.
So, that's that. As we probably should have expected, the wait for the third Yeezy 2 continued. We'll continue to update you with new information here at Sole Collector.
