A Closer Look To The Latest Yeezy Adidas Sneakers (Did Kanye Snapped?)

It’s A “Kanye West’s Shrug” Moment

A Change Of Direction For The Yeezy Adidas Sneakers?

The fashion industry and the music industry may look different from the outside but they all require the “Hit” factor which is why Kanye West has a lot of weight on his shoulders whenever he drops his Yeezy Adidas sneakers!

It is now a well documented tradition for each Yeezy seasons; Adidas and Ye always tease us with the next sneaker release for the new season. This time around, they’ve introduced the world to a new Yeezy Runner for the upcoming Yeezy Season 6.

Ever since he has stepped his foot in the footwear world, whether with Nike or Adidas, Mr. West always had the eye to bring a newer perspective with elements he took from different inspirations.

Today you’ll have an exclusive look at his new Yeezy runner coming for the Yeezy season 6. We will give our insights and why this particular release announces a change of direction for the Yeezy Adidas sneakers

Will Yeezy Jump Over Jumpman Again?

I’ll never say that Yeezy is losing his touch but it’s hard for me to understand his new direction. I remember when he said that he wanted to make his products more affordable but as you know those “Yeezy Runners” are not that much affordable although they have a simpler look.

When you compare this new line of Yeezy Addias sneakers with the smash that the Yeezy Boosts had on the sneaker world, you can tell that sneakerheads have some serious questions for the musician turned designer.

“I want to fucking draw shoes, and it doesn’t matter if someone thinks that I’m supposed to be doing something that’s more important. [Adidas] gave me the opportunity, especially this first run, to make ’em however I want to make ’em. They didn’t say, “You got to make the logo four times bigger than the shoe.’”

-Kanye West

I salute Ye’s effort to try different things but my only issue is the fact that his new release doesn’t bring something new to the sneaker culture. This aspect of Kanye’s work was always what made him an influential designer whether for shoes or for clothes.

The “Yeezy Factor” Is Missing

In fact, I see a lot of resemblance to the Prada Americas cup of the old school ES skateboard shoes. Once again, Ye’s flair didn’t miss some key changes in the sneaker culture.

Indeed, everything is merging between brands & designs but this particular release didn’t match our expectations or his usual standards.

I think he’s evolving as a designer and maybe this is an attempt to gain a larger crowd. Does Kanye tries to avoid being pigeonholed in the urban world? I think he made it very clear that he has high end fashion ambitions and maybe this is a step in that sense.

Nevertheless, I still give props to Yeezy’s earlier work and overall impact on the sneaker culture. I would like to see if this new line of Yeezy adidas sneakers will eventually disrupt the market.

There’s no official release date or price yet since this was just a teaser for what’s coming for the Yeezy Season 6

Cop Or Drop?

Regardless of the price or the release date, would you invest in a pair of those “Yeezy Runners“? If so, what attracts you in this new design?
