Last week, Kanye West took the stage at the adidas Global Brand conference to announce that the next Yeezys would come out in June. However, it looks like Christmas came a little early for the sneakerheads and Kanye-style devotees in the form of a leaked image of what is allegedly rumored to be the official Kanye West and Adidas sneakers. The images come from a user on Reddit.
If these are indeed the latest sneaker endeavor from Kanye than its clear he’s making sure his Adidas collaboration looks nothing like his work with Nike, he even switched up the name of the sneaker to be called “Yeezi.” The design of the shoe takes a much more minimalist approach with it’s main detail being a leather strap with buckle closure along the vamp of the shoe.
Neither Adidas nor Kanye have announced that this is indeed the new “Yeezi” but John Marcelo, writer for Complex, believes that the signature below the adidas logo on the inner soul is indeed Kanye West’s handwriting. Kanye did say that he designed 20 shoes for the brand so this definitely could be one of them.
What do you guys think? Are you feeling the completely redesigned sneakers?
