It looks like we’ve finally got a peek at the direction Kanye's latest work with adidas will be heading in. Over the last few months, images have circulated of what seems to be the adidas Calabasas, a modern take on the types of proto-crosstrainers popular in the late 80s – though there has been no indication that the shoe will ever reach retail. What does look like it will reach retailers, though, is this radical new nameless runner.
Seen on the feet of Yeezus himself – and then shown at his recent Yeezy Season 5 – the shoe has grooves striated across a fat midsole, and jagged layers of what looks to be neoprene and suede. While Ye’s pair comes in his beloved ‘Triple White’, the pair debuted at his fashion show comes with a palette that looks snatched straight from a 90s running magazine – although expertly tuned to be relevant in a modern market.
We don’t have word of a release date for these, their appearance means they can’t be far off. Stay tuned and we’ll hit you updates.
