So the time has come and we now have the official word from Nike regarding the much hyped Yeezy II release. After it’s postponement in April we didn’t quite know what was going on but we can now confirm that the official global release date for both colourways of the Yeezy II is now the 9th of June (Saturday). We will be selling both colours; the Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum and Black/Solar Red for the Australian recommended retail price of $350 per pair. There will only be three official stockists of the Yeezy II in Australia with Laced being the only official stockist in QLD. It goes without saying that these will be extremely limited, but to give you an idea, there are less than 30 pairs of each colourway in the country! …If you do the math, then you’ll see that each store only has a handful of each colourway to offer. So, due to the limited number of pairs we will be getting, we are going to hold a raffle to determine who gets to buy a pair. We feel this is the fairest way to run it considering the circumstances.
To celebrate the release we will be holding a launch event on the Saturday night from 6pm at the shop and this is when your raffle ticket (if you get one) could win you the chance to purchase a pair! We have decided to limit the amount of raffle tickets we hand out so each person has a fair chance of copping a pair. There will be a total of 70 raffle tickets handed out and these will be issued on a first come first served basis.
Apparently these are even more limited than the first Yeezy (from 2009) and the word is that this will be the last Nike x Kanye West co-lab…so, regardless of whether you’re going to rock, stock, or re-sell we suggest you get here EARLY!
*Strictly one pair per customer, no holds, no bribes, no discounts, no laybys…
