The futuristic footwear’s final form has been under debate since July last year, when the project was first teased online. Rough sketches were shared through Kanye’s Twitter, but fans wanted more. Eight months later, on a rainy Paris afternoon, they got their wish.
Stepping out from a limousine, Kanye was seen sporting the new Yeezy 451 sneakers, which have been touted as his most revolutionary to date.
Featuring a mesh upper with a sawtooth mould detail stretching from the midsole to the eyelets, the unreleased Adidas Yeezy 451 sneakers are a far departure from previous models. A more rugged exterior harshly juxtaposes the softness of former Yeezy designs, creating an entirely new silhouette for the Kanye/Adidas collection.
The infamous Alien Facehugger-inspired sole also makes its official debut in the Yeezy 451, despite uproar from sneaker fans online.
Sneaker fans are hopeful that the new Adidas Yeezys will feature the Boost sole they have come to love, but that is yet to be confirmed. Also up in the air is when the Yeezy 451 sneakers will hit shelves, or if they will at all, however, we’re all hoping Kanye’s latest showing could indicate a release is in the works.
