Yesterday, sneaker-heads across the globe were a-buzzing at news that Kanye West’s signature sneaker, the Nike Air Yeezy II, finally got an official drop date.  Nike released some beautiful new high-res photos of the Platinum Edition, and today we have new pics of the Back/Solar Red colorway as well.

Featuring reptile print and a cornucopia of construction materials like leather, nubuck, ballistic nylon, and glowing soles, the Yeezy II is doubtless the must have shoe of the summer.

The Nike Air Yeezy II drops 06/16/2012.  Stick with us for pricing info as it becomes available.

As always, we’ll keep you posted on any future updates and release info @kicksologists or on Facebook.

Care of STREEthing.
