Kanye West Broke Out Some New Yeezys And They Are His Craziest Look Yet
Kanye West is no stranger to doing strange s**t and his newest footwear design proves it once again. The futuristic-looking shoe is unlike anything you’ll see on the streets at the moment and we’re not sure if that’s a good thing or not. Featuring a wild outsole that looks like something between a Flintstone’s prop and some covenant architecture from Halo 2, the so-called Yeezy 451 is turning heads and getting people riled up on Twitter.
Sunday Service today. Yeezy Season 8 tomorrow. We finally get a look at the Yeezy 451 that @KanyeWest sketched in 2018. Thoughts? pic.twitter.com/gVw17dkMrg— Complex Sneakers (@ComplexSneakers) March 1, 2020
Even though it looks brand new, rumours of this silhouette have been circling since 2018 when a number of Kanye’s prototype sketches appeared online. The crude images showed a number of Yeezy models that have since been released, including the Yeezy 700 v3 and the 350 v3.
Kanye West unveiled the 2019 #YEEZY shoes in a sketch form, which includes Yeezy 700 V3, adidas Yeezy 350 V2, adidas Yeezy 500 V2, adidas Yeezy 451, adidas Yeezy 1050, and the adidas Yeezy Terrex. pic.twitter.com/zPRU1V6lve— YoMzansi SNEAKERS (@yoMzansiSneaker) July 28, 2018
The new 451s look far and away like the craziest sneakers coming out of Kanye’s billion-dollar adidas brand. Apart from the sawtooth outsole, the sneakers feature an upper similar to a hiking shoe, breathable mesh lining and thick laces that look more aesthetically placed than functional. It is unclear whether these shoes will see a release any time soon, but we may know more in the coming days as Kanye prepares to display Yeezy season 8 in a surprise show at Paris Fashion Week.
