These sneakers are an incredibly rare Nike Air Yeezy 2 in the ‘Mismatch’ colorway, a style that was never put into production by Nike. This pair was additionally signed by Mr. West.


As one of the most iconic sneakers of the twenty-first century, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 still captivates sneakerheads across the globe even almost a decade after their initial release in 2012. From the regional specific colorway releases, with the ‘Platinum’ colorway releasing on the West Coast and the ‘Black’ colorway releasing on the East Coast to Kanye wearing them a month before release - the hype for the Air Yeezy 2 was palpable.


The design of the Air Yeezy 2 differed from the original Air Yeezy with its more animalistic form, with its most striking element being the ridged reptile inspired heel counter. It was also slimmed down for greater mobility with the removal of unnecessary padding on the tongue and a thinner sole.


Mr. West is among the most influential rappers, designers, and artists alive today. He has sold more than 20 million albums and over 140 million singles and has won over 20 Grammy Awards. He was named one of Time Magazine’s most influential people in both 2005 and 2015, and his art has touched the lives of millions, both through music and fashion.


This exclusive pair is signed by Kanye West, and the sneakers are accompanied by a letter from James Spence Authentication in regards to the signature.
