According to Footlocker's official Twitter, the shoes will be available online only.
The news comes a day after Kanye West announced that his adidas line will be released in September 2014.
"For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West," adidas said in a statement December 3. "Well known for breaking boundaries across music, film and design and partnering with our history in street wear culture and leading innovations in sport, we look forward to creating a new chapter. Details to follow."
Prior to signing a deal with adidas, Kanye had worked with Nike on the Air Yeezys. Lately, Ye has been really critical of Nike and its CEO Mark Parker, HipHopDX reports.
Last month, Kanye called Nike out during a concert, so news of the Air Yeezy 2 release should definitely come as a very pleasant holiday surprise for sneakerheads.
