“Man I need to get those Red Octobers” that’s what L.A. Lakers swingman Nick “Swaggy P” Young told me when I interviewed him for Complex Sneakers. The Nike Air Yeezy II “Red October” are on sneakerheads wish list. As you may know, Nike dropped the highly-anticipated shoe with an unexpected announcement on their Twitter account last month, and they sold out in a matter of 11 minutes.
Swaggy P is one of the few athletes yet to get a pair, his peers have been flaunting their “Red Octobers” on Instagram—personally sent to them courtesy of Nike. The luxury of being a professional athlete. For us non-athletes, we can take from our savings and purchase a pair from a reseller for about a G.
