Gifting the first pair of V3s to none other than DJ Khaled

Kanye West is set to have a big couple of months coming up. Still very much in the throes of success and generally loving life during the traveling religious roadshow (or however you'd term it) that is his Sunday Service, he's also all but confirmed that his next studio album, for now called Jesus Is King, is also soon set to hit streaming services.

Meanwhile, the Yeezy hype train, which has remained a constant pretty much regardless of Kanye's misbehaviours in the last year or two, carries on chugging, and now it seems as if the latest model to hit the Yeezy product line — the third iteration of the retro-futuristic runner Boost 700 — is all but confirmed.

As ever, all the news surrounding the shoes was leaked initially by Kanye fan page Yeezy Mafia, which has become something of a hub for news and rumours surrounding the brand in particular, however over the weekend Kanye debuted the shoes in public while performing at one of his biggest Sunday Service shows yet in Atlanta.

The Sunday Service was attended by DJ Khaled and a host of other fans and local personalities. However Khaled was able to stop Kanye after the show, at which point Kanye eventually handed over his the debut pair of V3s to the well-known sneaker collector.

Just how you ask Kanye West for the literal shoes off of his feet is anyone's guess, but he did it anyway, leaving Khaled to make off like a chuffed basketball fan who'd just been handed a pair of Lebron's game-worn kicks.

According to YEEZY Mafia, the V3s probably won't arrive until early 2020, with multiple planned colourways of the 700V2s still yet to drop. Most notably, the 'Hospital Blues' are set to drop on September 28, while the 'Cloud White' and 'Citrin' versions of the 350 V2 are also releasing over the next few days.

For all the official release details, stay locked on to Adidas' website.
