DONDA is no doubt on the brain for fans of Kanye West, but while we patiently await the album's arrival, a new colorway of Ye's most outlandish YEEZY design has emerged. This week, courtesy of insider @influencevisions_, we get our first official look at the "Resin" YEEZY 450, which is — in our opinion — the best colorway of the silhouette to date.
Just like the "Cloud White" and "Dark Slate" iterations that came before it, the "Resin" pair boasts a breathable, sock-like knit upper, with that sawtooth EVA foam sole unit below, of course the distinguishing characteristic of the silhouette. A wavy outsole pattern is implemented underneath, as adidas' Three Stripes logo brands the pair on the bottom at the toe. The 450 then comes with tonal laces to complete the overall monochromatic look in the same vein as the aforementioned "Cloud White" and "Dark Slate" offerings.
While this is our first real-life glimpse at the "Resin" colorway, YEEZY MAFIA initially reported on the pair back in June when it shared a coinciding mockup of the shoe. It's worthy of note that the greenish hue was previously used by Kanye and his YEEZY team on the beloved Slides, and we can expect to see the color carried over to other silhouettes in the future, as is customary with the brand.
For now, insiders report that the "Resin" YEEZY 450 will release sometime in December, although we'll of course wait for confirmation from adidas. In the meantime, you can look forward to the "Cloud White" and "Dark Slate" colorways restocking in September.
