The Yeezy Wave Runner 700 has barely made it out into the wild (this writer is still waiting on his pair to arrive!), but it looks like Kanye is already tweaking the chunky trainer. Over the weekend, Ye was spotted on multiple occasions in a new white and grey sneaker that features the 700's distinctive wavy sole unit and a massively redesigned upper.
He was first snapped chilling in LA with Skrillex, Scooter Braun and longtime friend Virgil Abloh. Braun uploaded a closeup shot of the new model to his Instagram account. The following day, Kanye took to the streets of NYC on a shopping spree with ALYX designer Matthew Williams. (Not me, unfortunately.)
What's most interesting about this new design is its strong resemblance to Zara's Wave Runner knock-off. The plot thickens (taking cues from current sole trends its seems).
Is this a successor to the adidas Yeezy Wave Runner 700 or another Yeezy model entirely? We'll need to wait a little longer to find out. Stay tuned for updates!
