Before all the hysteria and crazy campouts, the Air Yeezy II first came to life in this never before seen leather-based sample.

One of the most talked about shoes of the past few years, this first edition Air Yeezy II features a full premium leather build in black, along with their usual scaled leather heel paneling. The usual Nike tongue branding isn't present on these either, and we also see an off-white hue taking care of the Tech Challenge-inspired midsole below. Present from the start, we also see the usual glow in the dark outsole sitting below.
