Air Yeezy II Signed and Worn by Kanye West Gets Auctioned for a Good Cause!


If you weren’t able to get your hands on a pair of limited-edition Air Yeezy II, then this might be your chance!

RE/CREATE New York is arranging an auction to benefit relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy. The charitable platform brought together prominent creators representing the world of fashion, entertainment, and more to donate personal, unique items for auction and support a good cause. All proceeds will go to New York Cares.

Kanye West-Signed and Worn Air Yeezy II for Auction

Among the personal items donated is one of the most coveted shoes on the market—and possibly the most hyped sneaker ever: the Nike Air Yeezy II. The pair that is up for auction is the Black/Solar Red colorway (size 10.5) with an autograph of Kanye West himself, along with a rough sketch of his trademark College Dropout bear. The sneakers will be put up for auction on January 24, 2013 at 10 p.m. ET.
