It was a very happy new year for some lucky sneaker heads. While performing during New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2014, Macklemore took off his coveted Red October Yeezy II sneakers and threw them into the crowd.
The elusive Red Octobers from Nike are one of the most lusted-after shoes. NiceKicks outlines the timeline of the red kicks back to October 2012. Yeezy himself was seen rocking the sneakers during Governor’s Ball in NYC and he later tweeted that he was giving away a pair on his website.
Kanye’s fiance Kim Kardashian was one of the few celebs to snag an early pair. Kimmy took to Instagram to show off her connect. “Special delivery!!! Kanye is rehearsing for his tour so I can’t bug him right now…hmmmm what should I do with these? #Yeezys #RedOctobers” she tweeted.
Recently, Kevin Hart boasted he owned a legit pair too. “For my Haters…..REAL REAL REAL BITCHHHEESSSS!!!#TheyMadBecauseIgotMineSoEarly#OhYouMadCuzImStylingOnYou #LittleSwag#Connections #HowDareYou #EnoughSaid,” he Instagrammed.
Congrats to Macklemore’s fans for being the newest Red October owners.
