Kanye West Debuts New adidas Yeezy Wave Runner 700 Colorway

That look isn’t Blue Steel but his shoes just might be Steel Blue. Yup, there’s a new adidas Yeezy Wave Runner 700 and to no surprise Kanye West has it first.

Spotted out and about, this new makeup relies on the same mix of mesh and leather with cool blue hues contrasting earthy tones. A nice change of pace from the edgier, more athletic look that launched for pre-order just weeks ago.

Peep ’em on Ye below and keep it locked to NK for release details.

Kanye West Previews adidas “Calabasas” Sneakers

Kim Kardashian has been cleverly cautious regarding a joint collection with her husband, Kanye West, circling a Calabasas theme.

While in attendance at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party in New York City Friday night, West was seen in adidas Calabasas gear, which also confirms that the line comes in more than just kids’ sizes.

On Kanye’s feet was a pair of the adidas Power Phase, a vintage tennis model from the 80’s. What’s unique is that the shoe is outfitted with Calabasas stamped at the quarter paneling. So while this doesn’t actually look to be a Yeezy collaborative shoe, it does signify more is coming with the Calabasas name. Stay tuned.

Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 2 Spring/Summer 2016 Apparel Collection Delayed, Footwear Drops on Schedule in June

Yesterday, in an official statement from brand president, Pete Fox, is was announced that Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 2 would not release in line with traditional fashion calendars for spring/summer 2016.

According to Fox’s statement, which was sent to select YEEZY retailers, this move works in conjunction with a transition to a season-less model. Thus, YEEZY Season 2 will not be produced in its entirely. Instead, select capsules will release throughout the year. A calendar for those releases was not specified.

Aside from the non-traditional move towards a season-less stream of releases, the delay will apparently aid in better quality products and to the embrace of many, a reduction in retail cost.

Where YEEZY Season 2 footwear is concerned, though, Fox reports everything remains on schedule for a global release on June 6. Additionally, Season 3 is said to not be affected by any of the changes with the Season 2 rollout.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story with YEEZY Season 2.

Kanye West Says a Million Pairs of adidas Yeezy Boost Will Be Produced This Year

“I guess in a media world where you never hear the truth, the truth can come off as crazy…”

Does Kanye West saying that adidas will produce a million pairs of Yeezy Boost this year sound crazy? Well, if his above tweet from earlier today is any indication, it shouldn’t sound crazy at all.

Just a short time ago, in a quiet moment that West mentioned felt like returning “home from battle,” he said something that adidas Yeezy Boost fans have wanted to hear since the very first pair released: adidas will be making a lot more pairs. One million pairs this year, to be exact.

Quantity, not affordability, has been the ongoing issue with the adidas Yeezy Boost. This news from West should leave fans very hopefully, as most still don’t own a pair of Yeezy Boosts even though they desperately want to. West didn’t go into specifics as to how the one million pairs will be dispersed, but he did mention that adidas is opening new factories to apparently handle the production. This, of course, won’t solve the larger supply and demand issue, yet the sheer numbers should lift the spirits of those who still hope to land a pair.

Kanye West & French Montana Rock Unreleased Yeezys on “Figure it Out” Set

As hoped for, the release of The Life of Pablo and the unveiling of Yeezy Season 3 appear to be only the beginnings of more music and more footwear from Kanye West. While on the set of the “Figure it Out” video, a collaboration from the new French Montana project that also features Nas, Kanye was all smiles in a pair adidas Yeezy Boost 350s from Season 3. These appear to be the same colorway and styling as debuted by Lil Yachty at the MSG show, though this is just one of many new Yeezy Boost 350 styles seen at or around Yeezy Season 3.

While it’s good to see Ye in new kicks, French may have stolen the show as it appears he’s wearing what people are calling the Yeezy Boost 550. While confirmation from Kanye’s camp or adidas is yet to happen, the model worn by French sees a “Moonrock” motif, but a zoomed in look at the upper sees these adding an eyelet and going above the ankle. Aside from that, construction and styling are linear with that of the 350. In addition, Wex re-grammed this same photo from @teamkanyedaily with the hashtag #unreleased though that could apply strictly to the Season 3 350s.

If these are the 550s, is the modified silo an improvement or a let down? Conversely, do you prefer the striped upper of the Season 3 Yeezy Boost 350s to prior releases? Check out zoomed in views of the IG shot spotted at Illroots below and keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more adidas Yeezy release info.

**BONUS** French also took to his snap to show the all-white adidas Yeezy Boost 350s from Season 3. While he says “they’re never coming out” we’re still hoping and thinking otherwise as they’ve already been both previewed and worn by Kanye himself. Check out the vid as captured from @teamkanyedaily below.

Kanye West Debuts adidas Yeezy Boost 350 from Yeezy Season 3

As alluded to, the Kanye West headlines keep on coming as Yeezy Season 3 is set to debut on Thursday. While at Kylie Jenner’s makeup line launch, our friends at Upscale Hype spotted Kanye West wearing the all-white adidas Yeezy Boost 350 from Yeezy Season 3 that Kanye previewed on Twitter yesterday.

Though super similar to the all-white pair Kanye pulled out at James Harden’s Birthday Party over the summer, this particular makeup appears to ditch the raised seam ridge that runs up the center of the shoe in previous seasons and also elects a different pattern on the upper. Get a glimpse of Kanye wearing these new Yeezys in the photo below and look for them to appear in this week’s Celebrity Sneaker Stalker.
