Pristine pair of ‘sample’ prototype Nike Air Yeezys in Zen Grey/Neon, designed by Kanye West and Mark Smith. 

 

The shoes, in size 9, still have their sample hang tags on, and were produced in December of 2008 in Nike’s Feng Tay factory, prior to their general release in April of 2009.

 

Kanye West premiered Air Yeezys in his 2008 Grammy Awards performance of Stronger and Hey Mama. In the years following, Mr. West would famously collaborate with Nike for a wide variety of Air Yeezy releases creating a mixture of extremely important products in the context of modern fashion, sneakers, and overall design.
