As hoped for, the release of The Life of Pablo and the unveiling of Yeezy Season 3 appear to be only the beginnings of more music and more footwear from Kanye West. While on the set of the “Figure it Out” video, a collaboration from the new French Montana project that also features Nas, Kanye was all smiles in a pair adidas Yeezy Boost 350s from Season 3. These appear to be the same colorway and styling as debuted by Lil Yachty at the MSG show, though this is just one of many new Yeezy Boost 350 styles seen at or around Yeezy Season 3.
While it’s good to see Ye in new kicks, French may have stolen the show as it appears he’s wearing what people are calling the Yeezy Boost 550. While confirmation from Kanye’s camp or adidas is yet to happen, the model worn by French sees a “Moonrock” motif, but a zoomed in look at the upper sees these adding an eyelet and going above the ankle. Aside from that, construction and styling are linear with that of the 350. In addition, Wex re-grammed this same photo from @teamkanyedaily with the hashtag #unreleased though that could apply strictly to the Season 3 350s.
If these are the 550s, is the modified silo an improvement or a let down? Conversely, do you prefer the striped upper of the Season 3 Yeezy Boost 350s to prior releases?

**BONUS** French also took to his snap to show the all-white adidas Yeezy Boost 550s from Season 3. While he says “they’re never coming out” we’re still hoping and thinking otherwise as a 350 version has already been both previewed and worn by Kanye himself.
