Air Yeezy: Meet the [Under]studies

with one comment

Less than Yeezys

This post is dedicated to all those who DIDN’T get a pair of the ever-so-coveted Air Yeezys. With two colorways already released in limited quantities, eBay-ers have treated these sneakers with the same price inelasticity as diamonds — making it pretty difficult to obtain a pair without selling a kidney on the black market.

Today we’re gonna show you a few kicks that (1) ARE available (or will be available shortly), (2) ARE dope enough to draw the attention of others, and (3) WON’T leave your account overdrafted.

EXHIBIT AThe Ocean Runner by Greedy Genius

Likeness: Extended HiTop; Grey Colorway; like the LV sneakers by Kanye…but Hitop.

Where it Differs: Think Sperry x Supra x NIKE….not Kanye x NIKE x Warren Buffet. These are gonna be a heavy hitter upon release, mainly since this is the best looking Greedy Genius shoe to drop. Expect heads to turn, and wallets to say “Thank You”.

EXHIBIT BRT1 by NIKE (White/Grey/Turquoise colorway) aka “The UnYeezys”.

Likeness: Extended HiTop; Bright contrasting interior; Safari Texture; Protruding tongue.

Where it Differs: Well….add a strap & an air bubble my friends, and PRESTO-Alacazam!! You have an Air Yeezy (but for about $135 LESS).

EXHIBIT C – Ex-O- Fit Hi SG Strap by Reebok

Likeness: Mid-Strap; Vibrant (attention-grabbing) colorways; mixture of materials.

Where it Differs: This sneaker is ALOT more OSTENTATIOUS than the Air Yeezys. It uses tone-on-tone, so more than likely…your sneakers will stand out from the rest of your ENTIRE outfit. Oh…did we mention you can get these for under $100?

  1. I really don’t understand why people like those air yeezy’s. Nike released them way too late, and now they look like every over high top shoe. Keep ya head up B, one semester to go.
