The Nike Air Yeezy II has been one of the most anticipated pairs of sneakers to be released this year. With many delays, however, Nike finally released the Red Octobers on Sunday, sending out this tweet in what was a surprise release:
The Nike Air Yeezy 2 is now available http://t.co/B9D2BtBQRx— Nike.com (@nikestore) February 9, 2014
The tweet caught many sneaker-heads off guard. But that didn't stop them from scooping up all the inventory. Just 10 minutes after the tweet above, Nike tweeted that the shoe was officially sold out:

Our favorite reaction tweet about the surprise shoe release was by @NickEngvall:
Yeezys dropped during church? Nike just made everyone decide between Jesus and Yeezus.— Nick Engvall (@NickEngvall) February 9, 2014
The surprise release really did cause quite a bit of a stir, as did the fact that the shoes sold out so quickly. The Nike Air Yeezy 2's are priced at $245. All in all, the shoes look pretty slick and well worth the price tag (if you can get your paws on them).
