Yeezy 2 "Red October" ReleasedMonday, February 10, 2014
Nike has heard Rapper Kanye West's recent radio rants loud and clear. In a surprising move, the sneaker giant released the Yeezy 2 Red October's on Sunday. The Yeezy 2's was released on their website (Nike.com) at 1pm and was quickly snatched up by sneaker lover within 11 minutes. The cost of the kicks was $245. They sold out Yeezy 2's can be on E-Bay, but get ready to shell out some big money. I'm talking $350-$8,000. CRAZY!!

Here's the twist. Kanye went a media blitz, dissing Nike. They would not give him another shoe deal or shoe royalties, because he is not an athlete. In November, he told HOT 97's hostess Angie Martinez: (2:04-2:36)
"It's cool that they marginalize me. I asked them when the Yeezy Red October's were coming out, I asked them, me Kanye West asked Nike when they told.. They say they not sure yet.."
