Like the classic board game Hungry Hungry Hippos, sneakerheads lapped up every morsel and bit of information this week regarding the purported launch of Nike Air Yeezy 2 "Red". However, the appearance of a supposed invitation, featuring a red "Horus" logo and an embossed June 18th, 2013 release date, perpetuated the rumor cycle even further. With fans everywhere revved up into frenzy, Nike Communications Director Heidi Burgett finally interjected a brief message on her Twitter account. While she confirmed a third colorway for the Nike Air Yeezy 2 will be on it's way later this year, Burgett made no mention of the Red Colorway as it. Furthermore, she "killed off" any more talks of the June 18th (or June 16th) release date with a second statement "Not June 16th or June 18th, later this year." To address the mis-information, Kanye West's longtime confidant, Ibn Jasper, added a NSFW message as well, putting the rumor to rest once and for all.
