The lace-up boot, with its moulded toe box and exaggerated tread, looks pretty damn similar to the unreleased Yeezy 1050, which was seen during the Season 3 runway. Considering 'Ye’s tendency for perfectionism, we wouldn’t be surprised if he’d been tweaking the design for this long.
From the looks of it, these Yeezys will come tooled for the outdoors. They sport a Gore-Tex upper and Continental rubber soles — so they should withstand the elements a little better than your v2s.
No further news yet, but we’ll keep an eye on Mr West’s Twitter feed for updates (and keep our ears open for an album drop).
