UPDATE: Official details on Kanye West's next adidas silhouette are still non-existent, but we now have a closer look at the new addition to the Yeezy Boost line. Tentatively dubbed the Yeezy SPLY Boost 350 V2 – formerly the Yeezy Boost 550 – the new low-top design bears a strong resemblance to the current Yeezy Boost 350. Striking 'SPLY-350' branding has been added to the lateral side and the rear heel pull removed, but we can expect one thing to remain consistent – the hype for these will induce campouts for days!
No release details are known at this stage, but hopefully the emergence of these images is an indication a release isn't too far off. We'll keep you updated.

We’ve just got our first look at the highly anticipated adidas Yeezy Boost 550 in a stealth black/white colourway. Immediately apparent is the bold white woven streak that runs across the Primeknit upper. The silhouette is cut slightly higher than its Yeezy Boost 350 predecessor and forgoes the earlier model’s pull tab for a collar that curves out from the top of the heel. The smoky semi-translucent outsole boasts an updated pattern and displays the iconic Boost midsole. Mysteriously, although dubbed the Yeezy Boost 550 the upper clearly displays ‘350-SPLY’. No word on a release date for these guaranteed internet-melters – stay tuned.
