After months and months of teasers, it seems we will finally be seeing the release of the adidas Yeezy 450. The shoe, designed with heavy influence from Steven Smith, carries a trail influence among a more athletic sock-fit.
Initially slated to be called the adidas Yeezy 451, has received many mixed reactions from the sneaker industry. While we’re not fully sold on them yet one thing that is for certain is that it’s refreshing to see Ye drop a new silhouette.
An intriguing construction greets fans with a juxtaposed aesthetic all over the model. A knit upper sits snugly in the sole, which wraps the upper in a cage reminiscent of bones. Along the top of the forefoot we find an integrated lacing system with thick rope laces looping through.
Update: After its initial release, it appears that fans of the Yeezy 450 can have a second chance at the model this upcoming August. While no exact date has been confirmed, the silhouette is definitely making a come back for its retail price of $200 via select retailers.
