With every major release, Yeezy Mafia’s claim that ‘2018 is the year of 4D’ gets more prophetic. The Three Stripes went large on the tech during All-Star Weekend, Yohji Yamamoto used it to make the most advanced Y-3 ever, and now a startling white colourway has emerged.
The make-up harks back to an era when Kanye rocked ‘Triple White’ UltraBOOSTs, and adidas’ cultural takeover was building momentum. To the uninitiated, the white is a simple colourway flip. But to those in Team Trefoil, it’s a subtle merge of past ideals and future tech.
When a render of the shoe first appeared, Yeezy Mafia said we could expect them in February or March. Now that Feb is done and dusted, March looks promising, especially considering Highsnobiety already have their mitts on a pair and have shared some excellent on-foot shots.
We’d say 'keep an eye out for a release', but we don't want to get your hopes up; the shoe is meant to be a limited ‘Friends and Family’ drop. Those with the pull should start calling in favours.
