Could it be the adidas Yeezi? A timely, leaked image spotted by Hypebeast sees Kanye West eyeing an unidentified sneaker model. While lack of branding on the sneaker and the excess imagination of the Photoshop era make it far too soon to confirm this as the adidas Yeezi, this photo could hold some weight. The shoe in the image features a sleek high cut– not too different from the Bottega Veneta boots or Maison Martin Margiela Future silos he’s favorited as of late– complimented by a calm color palette and composition that is reminiscent of his work with Louis Vuitton.
While the midfoot strap and wavy sole stand out, the real kicker come in the form of the slit ankle collar. What otherwise looks like a one-piece upper sees separation on the lateral side from the collar to the midsole, registering as more lux or progressive than any aesthetic attribute we’ve seen on recent sneaker designs. Could it be the adidas Yeezi? We can’t confirm yet, but we do hope these come out. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more details. It’s been stated by Kanye previously that the adidas Yeezi would release in November.
