Kanye’s “Red October” Release Cancelled, Rapper Designs First Adidas 

An innumerable amount of people have been anticipating the release of Kanye West’s “Red October” edition of his Air Yeezy 2 sneaker for months.

Popular shoe retailer Foot Locker provided those people with great news earlier this month when it announced that the Red Octobers would be available for purchase exclusively online on December 27th. But three days before the scheduled release date, on December 24th, Foot Locker stated that the shoes wouldn’t be available for purchase by the public after all.

“Unfortunately, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 will not be releasing via http://Footlocker.com on Dec 27. We have no further updates at this time,” the brand tweeted from its @Footlocker Twitter account 0n Christmas Eve.

On another note, Kanye West recently disclosed that he’s designed his first 20 shoes for Adidas in an interview with Chicago radio station 107.5’s Morning Riot show.

“We designed the entire women’s collection,” West said the interview. “We designed the entire men’s collection. And we designed 20 shoes. We coming in September and it’s about to be a paradigm shift.”

West decided to sign a partnership with Adidas after growing frustrated with Nike’s unwillingness to provide him with a release date for the “Red October” edition of his Air Yeezys. It’s interesting how the franchise remains reluctant to release the shoe now that he’s a part of its rival company. Hopefully, people will be able to cop a pair of the highly-anticipated Nikes as well as Kanye’s Adidas sneaks in the near future.
