Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 2 Spring/Summer 2016 Apparel Collection Delayed, Footwear Drops on Schedule in June

Yesterday, in an official statement from brand president, Pete Fox, is was announced that Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 2 would not release in line with traditional fashion calendars for spring/summer 2016.

According to Fox’s statement, which was sent to select YEEZY retailers, this move works in conjunction with a transition to a season-less model. Thus, YEEZY Season 2 will not be produced in its entirely. Instead, select capsules will release throughout the year. A calendar for those releases was not specified.

Aside from the non-traditional move towards a season-less stream of releases, the delay will apparently aid in better quality products and to the embrace of many, a reduction in retail cost.

Where YEEZY Season 2 footwear is concerned, though, Fox reports everything remains on schedule for a global release on June 6. Additionally, Season 3 is said to not be affected by any of the changes with the Season 2 rollout.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story with YEEZY Season 2.

Fred Perry ‘Rambling’ Footwear and Accessories Fred Perry The Great British Outdoors Rambling Footwear & Bags

Fred Perry’s recent collections have been a blending of their classic prep influence with a more rugged, outdoorsy element. Their latest release, the ‘Great British Outdoors Rambling’ collection, features a series of 2 sneakers & 2 rucksacks. Personally, we prefer the olive plimsoll over the blue simply because of the laurel wreath brand location. As for the bags, both really are quite nicely done. All pieces are available now at Fred Perry Online.

The Weeknd & Alexander Wang Have a Footwear Collab on the Way

Months ago, Alexander Wang made noise with a star studded campaign featuring the likes of Kanye West, A$ AP Rocky and many more. While all artists in the spread saw their shine, it appears only one will have the pleasure of collaborating with Wang on an official release.

Riding high off the success of his sophomore album and current tour with Travi$ Scott, The Weeknd is teaming up with the New York designer for a capsule collection of footwear. A previewed pair on the feet of Abel himself sees a black and white color palette that plays well with both creative’s aesthetic. High cut and slim in silo, this pair plays the middle ground between sneaker and boot, looking to leather and lace up construction.

While just how many styles and color codes will be launching is unknown at this moment, but get our first look at The Weeknd x Alexander Wang collabo in the photos below.

In The Field // Footwear at Fun Fun Fun Fest

This past weekend, Austin’s own Fun Fun Fun Fest celebrated its tenth anniversary with a three-day rager than included performances by the likes of Rae Sremmurd, ScHoolboy Q and Ms. Lauryn Hill. As those that pay attention to clothes know, a music festival is a better place to catch a homemade headdress than Flight Club fodder on the feet. Nonetheless, some good surprises and some noticeable trends were apparent.

Most Seen Shoe // Vans Sk8-Hi

vans-sk8-hi

If Fun Fun Fun Fest had an official shoe it’d be the Vans Sk8-Hi. With the festival having deep roots in punk, metal and skate, the shoe captures the aesthetic and sound of much of the scene. Add in the fact that they’re accessible and look good with just about anything (specifically skinny black jeans) and you have more than a trend but rather a staple. Whether it be guys or gals, the Sk8-Hi was everywhere, rain or shine.

Most Practical Heat // Air Jordan 1 High

aj1

Arguably the hoops to hip hop equivalent of the Sk8-Hi, the Air Jordan 1 High was seen but in much lesser numbers. The shoe has been the toast of fashion circles for the last four years or so, but definitely gets more traction on the street or runway than that of festival fields. Still, a classic look and leather build make the black-based colorway a safe but standout wear at a music festival. Cushioning is a bit of lost cause on these kicks (might be worth throwing in an extra insole if you’re gonna be on your feet all day), but all things considered these look good beat up and clean relatively easy.

Surprise Gem // Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Gym Green”

nike-air-foamposite-pro-gym-green

The outdoor elements mixed with big crowds make music festivals an unlikely spot to break out or wear sneaker heat. Fortunately at Fun Fun Fun Fest, a sunny Sunday made for some surprise heat. The gem of gems was ironically the “Gym Green” Nike Air Foamposite Pro. Foams are actually a fairly safe play for festivals, especially the ones with cooler weather. They’re just about indestructible, close to waterproof and pack Zoom Air for light cushioning. I actually broke out my Silver/Black Pros from ’05 for a drizzly Friday and was comfortable and dry all evening. Aside from a pair of “Blackout” Penny 4s we didn’t capture on camera, the other surprise heat was a pair of ’01 “True Blue” Air Jordan 3s.

Highest Risk-Reward Trend // Retro Runners

nice-kicks-new-balance-1500

If you’re going to be on your feet all day, it doesn’t make much more sense than a pair of runners. Light, comfy and low profile, they’re the smart wear. Unless you’re on the athleisure movement though, it’s typically unlikely to catch a pair of modern Air Maxes or adidas Boosts out and about. Thus, retro runners get traction.

We were pleased to see our Nice Kicks x New Balance 1500 collaboration get the call and also spotted some sick all-pink Air Max 90s. While retro runners balance the fashion and function conundrum rather well, they’re a bit of a risk regarding the elements. Standard use of nubuck, suede, mesh and heavy contrast stitching is a tough clean on both a rainy or dusty day. Nevertheless, retro runners were out in some abundance and we weren’t mad at that.

Crossover Classic // Nike Alpha Shark Cleats

nike-cleats

Last but not least, one of the most profound but practical sneakers spotted wasn’t even a sneaker, but rather a pair of cleats. For an event like Fun Fun Fun Festival that defies genres and merges a variety of artists and interests, it was fitting for a crossover play to steal the show. Built for the field, these were a surprise that made a lot of sense.

Check back Thursday to see what the performers wore on stage at Fun Fun Fun Fest in the latest Celebrity Sneaker Stalker.
