This is a sad Christmas Eve for devout sneaker heads. Just a few days ago, fans of Kanye West's Air Yeezy II "Red Octobers" started saving up their coins with promise of a chance to snag the shoes right after Christmas. Footlocker had originally announced that the shoes would be available Dec. 27:
UPDATE: The Red Nike Air Yeezy 2 will be available ONLINE ONLY on December 27th at 8am EST.

As of today, the sneaker store played take backs on their promise, claiming that now the coveted kicks will not be released this week.
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.
