One of the most famous sneakers of all time is the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October”. This sneaker has a pretty insane resale value, and it was the last shoe Kanye ever released with Nike. There’s a lot of history and fanfare behind this release, and to this day the shoe is a holy grail for many sneakerheads. If you have a pair, your sneaker collection is automatically valid in the eyes of purists and even hypebeasts.

Kanye has always been a fan of the all-red aesthetic. These days, monochromatic red sneakers are getting the nickname “Red October,” and unfortunately, that’s led to some confusion. For example, Mase was tricked into believing he was given a pair of Red Octobers, but in the end, he got a very different shoe.
