Next Week, Kanye West is expected to unveil his Adidas shoe collaboration at New York Fashion Week, and he’s set up a website (yeezy.supply) presumably counting down to the reveal. But Ibn Jasper, Kanye’s barber, posted photos of the new shoe early on his Instagram yesterday. It’s apparently called the Yeezy Boost, and it looks something like a cross between a high top sneaker and a desert boot. As Idolator points out, Theophilus London noted in a now-deleted Instagram post that it would be available in one color (grey) and can be worn five different ways. And seemingly confirming their authenticity, Rihanna posted an Instagram yesterday of Kanye, Paul McCartney, and herself rehearsing for their Grammy performance of “FourFiveSeconds,” and Kanye is wearing the Yeezy Boost. Check out photos of the shoe below.
GQ reports they’ll sell for $350 and only 3000 pairs will be available.
UPDATE 2/11: Billboard reports that the launch of the Yeezy 750 Boost will be simulcast to 50 movie theaters worldwide when it’s announced this Thursday. All of the tickets are sold out now, but you could have ordered them on yeezy.supply if you were quick enough.
