Kanye Surprises Fans With The Wave Runner 700
UPDATE: Yeezy Supply is now offering international orders for the upcoming Wave Runner release. If you're lucky, you can find your size here.
Out of left field, Kanye added to the Yeezy family over the weekend with the release of the Wave Runner 700. We caught a glimpse of the shoe on the Yeezy Season 5 runway back in February, but its August 12 drop on the Yeezy.Supply website was completely unexpected.
The Wave Runner 700 comes in a 'Solid Grey/Chalk White/Core Black' colourway, with coloured accents scattered across a huge midsole and upper. With a suede toe box and heel, and a jagged outsole, the shoe ditches the BOOST 350 aesthetic in favour of a sturdier silhouette.
In a first for the Yeezy brand, adidas' Three Stripes feature in the design's reflective mesh upper. Kanye's tied up the shoe with laces that look like they were borrowed from the 'Semi Frozen Yellow' Boost 350 v2. Unsurprisingly, the Wave Runner 700 has already sold out. It's rumoured that adidas is already considering a re-release of the runner – we'll be sure to let you know if we hear more.
