From the ground up

By now we’re more used to hearing there will be more delays for Kanye’s Yeezi sneaker release than advancements in its arrival. But following on from the news that adidas would be releasing the sneaker later this month, an image featuring Kanye on a plane with a never-seen-before sneaker has just surfaced on the web. We’ve yet to hear official confirmation, but is this the upcoming Yeezi model? It’s a world away from his Nike Air Yeezys which with their molded rubber heel cage follow a much more futuristic design. This pair feels more like hybrid between a pair of visvim FBT and Rick Owens‘ latest collection for adidas, with a tan, possibly nubuck upper, mid-top with a zip-up on the side, and a loop fabric lacing system, a ribbed sole unit, and a strap across the laces. Stay tuned, as ever, for more information when it drops.
