This editor won't be standing in line for them, but chances are some of you out there have been counting down the days to availability since you saw Kanye sporting these at last year's Grammys. The Nike Air Yeezy ($215) are the first Nike kicks bearing the name and approval of Hip-Hop's resident fashion expert. Fine-tuned on stages around the world, the Yeezys keep you locked down with debossed ankle collar pods for added support and protection, extra-thick sock liners, a forefoot support strap, and Phylon tooling taken from the 1987 Nike Air Assault. Oh, and a glow-in-the-dark outsole. They'll go on sale in New York City at Niketown and various Manhattan Foot Lockers this Saturday.
As worn by geek god and Digg founder Kevin Rose, the Adidas SL 72 ($65) brings some casual, vintage style to any occasion. They also come with their own built-in story — the sneakers were first offered way back in 1972 as a training shoe for the Olympic Village athletes — to give you something to talk about during awkward conversations. If you look closely, you'll notice Kevin also wears the Uncrate-approved Oberon Socks. We're awaiting Kevin's report on the rest of his national TV appearance attire. Think of it as the Web 2.0 Red Carpet Fashion Report.
