Ever since the first official word that the Kanye West x adidas collaboration would finally be unveiled this coming New York Fashion Week, the suspense has been building. A special newsletter was launched, the Yeezy.supply countdown clock is running, and adidas even went one step further by launching a special sneaker reservation app in anticipation of the strong demand.
As far as we know, one sneaker will launch shortly after the announcement next week, with a full collection to follow shortly after. In preparation for that, it looks like that first sneaker, dubbed the Yeezy Boost, has finally been unveiled by none other than Ibn Jasper. Apparently officially labeled the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost, the high rise sneaker comes with a light sand suede upper and a special Boost outsole. Much like the Kanye West x Nike Air Yeezy it also features a prominent strap, yet otherwise the musician appears to have taken a minimal, high fashion approach that’s a lot less athletic in style.
After months of speculation, we reckon you can be more-or-less certain that these are the new Kanye West x adidas sneakers. All that’s left to do now is wait for an official release date. We will, of course, keep you posted.
UPDATE: With the release of the first images of the Kanye West x adidas sneaker numerous other rumors have surfaced in the last 24 hours. Apparently there will also be a second colorway of the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost in solar red. With red having become a trend ever since the release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October,” fans should be excited to get a red version of the sneaker from adidas. Furthermore there is apparently also a second sneaker model releasing, entitled the “Yeezy YZY Boost.” Some first pricing has also surfaced, with the Yeezy YZY Boost apparently going for $250 and the Yeezy 750 Boost going for $250.
