Like if this guide is helpful
The Nike Air Yeezy is the official sneaker project between American rapper Kanye West and footwear maker Nike. The Air Yeezy was first released in 2009, and the Air Yeezy II was released in 2012. The early prototypes of the Air Yeezy featured many different silhouettes and colorways that varied greatly from the final released version. For example, the outsole featured a Y-print on the toe box while its final release showcased a large, spherical shape on the back of the midsole. The Nike Air Yeezy II has similar tooling to the Air Yeezy, but its design is animal inspired. It sports a snakeskin design on the side panel and a reptilian-inspired heel panel. There are also references to Egyptian culture with hieroglyphics and depictions of the god Horus on the insole and tongue.

Quality, Design, and Sizes of the Nike Air Yeezy

The design of the Nike Air Yeezy was influenced by the Nike Air Tech Challenge II tennis shoe. It features a high-quality leather upper polyurethane midsole with an air-sole rubber outsole for optimal traction. The air-sole in the heel absorbs shock for protection when on the court. The overall silhouette is slim as it was designed to the shape of Kanye West's narrow foot. The Air Yeezy II showcases a Roman numeral two on the back of each lace lock.
The Nike Air Yeezy comes in the typical men's sizes and smaller sizes for women. The Nike Air Yeezy also runs pretty true to size. While Nike never released the Air Yeezy in kid's sizes, custom sneaker companies have created spot-on reproductions for children.
