One of the greatest triumphs and tragedies of Nike is the Kanye West signature sneakers, the Air Yeezy 1 and the Air Yeezy 2. Engineered with Ye’s input to be a performance sneaker for the stage, the Air Yeezy shoes are some of the most iconic shoes ever formed by the Swoosh. Now a recent relic, the Air Yeezys are now the inspiration for the color blocking of another former relic of the past-turned-new retro classic – the Nike Air Foamposite Pro Premium “Air Yeezy”. Blocked in the original black and glow-in-the-dark colorway from both Air Yeezys, the new Air Foamposite Pro Premium pays homage to its predecessor.

The latest Air Foamposite Pro Premium features two distinct yet subtle graphic patterns, with a carbon-fiber inspired print on the Foamposite upper and a snakeskin print on the eyestay. Laser Crimson accents provides a pop of color along the upper while a glow-in-the-dark outsole keeps you visible day or night. Available April 19 on Nike.com (8am EDT/5am PDT).
