Perhaps one of Kanye's most experimental footwear designs, the new adidas YEEZY 451 is highly anticipated to drop. Now a speculative release date purported by sneaker leak page PY_RATES suggests the shoe could become available soon.
Posting to Instagram, PY_RATES claimed that the eccentric sneaker could be making its debut in February 2021 in the Nuriel colorway and is set to retail for $180.
Kanye West debuted the design in Paris earlier this year in the upcoming Nuriel colorway. Then we got a closer look at the 451 model in July, when YEEZY insider, Yeezy Mafia, posted a picture of the sneaker in an alternative, darker theme.
The leaked image revealed a technical fabrication on the upper, done up in light blue with some colorful 3M highlights. The previous sample appeared to feature a nubuck/suede construction. This particular sample boasts a sleek, slip-on design. The laceless alternative is aesthetically aligned with the 451's futuristic theme and its Alien facehugger-style sole unit.
It remains to be seen whether adidas and YEEZY have really scheduled the release for February 2021. Keep it here for updates.
