Air Yeezy: Meet the [Under]studies
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 A – The 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 B – RT1 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?
YOU CAN’T SAY THAT WE DON’T LOOK OUT FOR YALL!
