Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIFebruary 9, 2014

The Nike Air Yeezy II has been one of the more anticipated pairs of sneakers, as they had been delayed for quite some time. However, Nike finally released the Red Octobers on Sunday, sending out this tweet in what was a surprise release.

While the release caught many off guard, that didn't keep a large number of people from buying them. Just about 10 minutes later, Nike tweeted that the shoe had already sold out.

Priced at $245, the surprise release caused quite a bit of a stir, as did the fact that the shoes sold out so quickly.
