It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the YEEZY speculation is getting a bit out of hand these days. Like a real-life game of telephone, rumors and whispers quickly transmit through Facebook fan pages, forums and blogs, until before you know it, kids in Asia are lining up outside YEEZY stockists, when a release date hasn’t even been announced by adidas.
For those trying to make a quick buck, current resell prices could account for a month’s wage in some cases. For those that will actually wear their kicks, the limited availability and street cred that comes with owning YEEZYs seems to be the most valuable cultural currency in the sneaker world right now.
Although it was reported last weekend (yes, we at Highsnobiety are guilty too) that a brown colorway of the 750 would be hitting shelves March 18, we can now report with 100% certainty that there will be no further YEEZY drops – 750, 350 or otherwise – during the month of March, and early summer 2016 is when the next release will likely be slated, so tell your friend to tell a friend.
In the meantime, check out Kanye and French Montana rocking unreleased YEEZYs on the set of their latest music video.
