Hold on to your hats, sneakerheads. Thanks to a long-awaited Nike press release, it looks like Kanye West’s anticipated Air Yeezy 2 collaboration shoes finally have an official release date. Mark your calendars for June 9, folks. That’s when the second coming of the Air Yeezy will hit Nike shelves near you. The release states that these kicks were created with “a primal, tactile approach to technology” in mind. It’s evident in the snakeskin textured panels of the upper, the molded reptilian heel, and even the hieroglyphic details.

The shoes are a portrait of high-end streetwear, rolling innovative design, sport craftsmanship, and luxurious materials into one glow-in-the-dark-soled pair. The shoes will come in two colorways, Platinum and Black, and according to Complex are expected to retail for $245. However, if the Nike Foamposite Galaxy’s riot-plagued February release is any indicator, the Air Yeezy 2s may wind up price-gauged on eBay within hours of doors opening. Will you be waiting in line for the Air Yeezy 2 on June 9?
