Fresh from Yeezy Mafia’s crystal ball comes a new offering from adidas. Concrete info is harder to come by than a pair of ‘Semi Frozen Yellow’ at retail, but we’d hazard a guess that this Yung-1 Runner is a move towards making the burly beauty of models like the Wave Runner more accessible.
As for the name, we have our reservations. Is it ‘Yung’ because it comes in kids’ sizes? Is the name just a Mafia troll? The only thing for certain right now is that the sneaker is flames.
Looking like it draws on old EQT stylings, the sneaker achieves heft without clunk, and comes away looking more daddy than dad shoe. If all goes to plan, you can wear them from June 2018.
