Kanye West and Fat Joe are entering the sneaker game with upcoming exclusive releases. West’s highly anticipated Air Yeezys will be first to hit stores, with the first of three colorways—Zen Grey— available on Saturday (April 4).
Sure to have sneaker heads lining up for hours, West’s kicks are limited to select retailers, including all Foot Locker House of Hoops locations, and are rumored to carry a price tag of $215. A black colorway of the shoe will be on sale starting May 2 and a third colorway will follow in June.
Catering to a vastly different market, Joe’s “Recession” shoes will only run $35 and be made available at Sears and Kmart stores only, according to sneakerfiles.com. Though no release date is confirmed for the sneakers, Joe’s ninth studio album, J.O.S.E. 2, ships on May 19. – Devin Chanda
