Sneakerheads are already buzzing about the yet-to-be-released second coming of Kanye West's Nike Air Yeezy kicks, and these latest snaps of 'Ye in between stops on his Watch the Throne tour with Jay-Z only fan the flames higher. Kanye was photographed leaving the Mercer Hotel in NYC wearing a pair of sneakers that can only be deduced as part of the upcoming collection, dubbed Nike Air Yeezy 2.

Featuring a similar upward swooping hi-top style and chunky strap as the OG Air Yeezy, the 2 appears to do more to play with textures, mixing snakeskin, rubber, canvas, and mesh on this black and pink style alone! The vaguely mint-colored sole hints that Ye and Nike have brought back the popular glow-in-the-dark bottoms of the original iteration, but these side-view shots reveal the addition of a ridged stegosaurus-esque heel that is both futuristic and primal. If these drop any time around the holiday season, you can bet they'll be on more than a few wish lists (think: the Tickle Me Elmo stampedes of 1996).
