Is This An Image Of Kanye West’s adidas Yeezi?
By the time Kanye West and adidas get around to actually releasing the Yeezi—Kanye’s first official sneaker with adidas—people are going to be tired of talking about it. Because for the last six months or so, there has been a ton of speculation about it. Sneaker blogs have wondered what the sneaker will look like. Sneakerheads have debated over whether or not they’ll actually buy it. And the rest of us have tried to guess when it will come out. It’s become pretty clear that Kanye is not going to rush it into production. But at this point, he’s really dragging his feet and taking his sweet time with the Yeezi sneaker.
We might be getting closer to a release date, though. Because yesterday, an image hit the Internet that appears to feature a first look at the elusive Yeezi. There’s obviously been no confirmation from adidas about whether or not this is definitely the Yeezi. But according to several sneaker blogs who spoke with adidas sources, this is what the Yeezi is going to look like when it’s released. It appears to have a tan upper, a chunky, ribbed outer sole, a unique lacing system, a strap across the front of it, and lots of other little details that seem so Kanye-esque. If this is, in fact, the first image of the Yeezi available to the public, it’s a shame that it came out like this, because a lot of the elements of the sneaker require additional explanation from both Kanye and adidas. But hopefully, we’ll know more about it soon enough.
At this time, the Yeezi still doesn’t have an official release date. And as we’ve suggested several times now, there’s a chance that this is not the Yeezi. Or at the very least, there’s a chance that this is not the final Yeezi. But if it is, what do you think about what Kanye has come up with here? Is it a little bit too crazy for you—or would you pick up a pair of these in a second?
Let us know what you think, and we’ll be sure to provide you with additional details about the adidas Yeezi when they become available.
