Unfortunately, the Nike Air Yeezy 2 will not be releasing via http://t.co/K5S0xnnVF1 on Dec 27. We have no further updates at this time.

And with one tweet, Foot Locker ruined Christmas for a lot of grown men.
No ‘Red October’ Yeezy IIs for anyone at the moment. The change of course follows the frenzy created when the shoe retailer initially listed Kanye’s kicks on their release calendar last Friday before quickly removing the info. But nothing could stop the hype train once it left the station. Well, nothing except for the above message.
So where does that leave desperate footwear fans? Foot Locker with an in-store only release at House Of Hoops? Maybe an online release at a later date? Grey market maybe?
