Resell platform GOAT has given us our best look yet at the adidas YEEZY 1020V. The boot, which was teased in late 2020 alongside another YEEZY boot called the 1050 V3, looks as if it was created on — or at the very least for the colonization of — Mars.
Its upper features a protective layer that is opened and closed via a zip that runs from the top of the tongue to the middle of the forefoot. The upper is engulfed in what looks like a rubber mold that has a heavily-lugged outsole. Continental branding on the back of the heel confirms that adidas has tapped its longtime partner to construct a grippy outsole, seen previously on the Ultraboost.
The adidas YEEZY 1020V looks to combine elements from trail-running, such as the treaded outsole, with YEEZY and Kanye West’s futuristic military boot aesthetic.
No word yet on when (or even if) this design will be released, though it seems it was available for purchase on GOAT before being archived. That suggests there are pairs that have made their way onto the market and could point to a release at some point this year.
As always, stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, check out last year’s leaks and rumors surrounding the 1020V and 1050 V3 here.
