As we previously reported, after months of speculation as to when or if the highly anticipated Air Yeezy II Red October shoes would drop, out of no where a tweet went out from the Nike Twitter account. It only took between 10 to 20 minutes before the shoes were totally sold out.
According to Eben Gregory, a rep for Nike sent out an email that said,
“Nike was committed to releasing the Red color way. And it was clear the consumer was asking for it. Nike communicated directly to nearly 2.6 million Twitter followers when we made it available for purchase….This is the final shoe in the Yeezy collection.”
