From restocks to reschedules the Yeezy launch calendar seems to change every other week. The Yeezy 500 Granite has gotten the same treatment. Originally suppose to launch at the beginning of the year, we are finally getting release for this colorway. Whether it stays on this date, only time will tell.
The YEEZY 500 Granite features an upper consisting of suede and leather overlays in a steel wool grey. The mesh underlays make up most of the upper also in smoke charcoal. A rubber mudguard in grey sits above the midsole on the lateral side of the foot, providing scuff-resistant durability. The 3M reflective piping around the eyelets offers high visibility in the dark.
The upper sits on top of an adiPRENE+ midsole in a smoke grey finish. The chunky build is borrowed from the retro basketball KB8 3’s midsole. Even though the 500 doesn’t use BOOST™ this is still one of the most comfortable Yeezy models. A smoke grey rubber outsole provides traction and stability. Other details include oval laces, and Ortholite insole.

The shoe’s sleek silhouette, minimalistic design, and avant-garde details create a visual appeal that resonates with fashion-forward individuals. The absence of traditional laces, replaced by a secure and convenient slip-on construction, further enhances the futuristic vibe of the sneaker.
In line with the increasing demand for eco-conscious products, the YEEZY Foam Rnr is an emblem of sustainability. Ye and his team have made considerable efforts to incorporate recycled and environmentally-friendly materials into the shoe’s design. From the upper made of recycled materials to the eco-friendly production methods, YEEZY Foam Rnr sets an example for other footwear brands to follow, proving that style and sustainability can coexist.
One of the standout features of the YEEZY Foam Rnr is its versatility. Designed to seamlessly transition from athletic activities to casual outings, these sneakers offer a blend of performance and style. Whether you’re hitting the gym, going for a run, or simply running errands, the YEEZY Foam Rnr effortlessly adapts to various settings, making it a go-to choice for those seeking footwear that excels in different environments.
As with previous YEEZY releases, the YEEZY Foam Rnr has been a highly sought-after item. The limited-edition nature of the shoe, coupled with Ye’s influence and the hype surrounding his brand, creates an air of exclusivity. Sneaker enthusiasts, fashion aficionados, and collectors alike eagerly await the opportunity to add this coveted silhouette to their collections.
The Yeezy Foam Rnr Carbon should see a launch sometime in 2023 as long as Ye and adidas can continue to coexist. With its focus on unrivaled comfort, sustainability, futuristic aesthetics, and versatility, the model has set a new standard for footwear. Ye continues to push boundaries, merging fashion, technology, and sustainability in a way that captivates audiences worldwide. Let’s hope we can see plenty more colorways of the YEEZY Foam Rnr launch as we move farther into 2023. For now enjoy a few images below of the Carbon colorway expected to launch later this year.

- Adidas Will Release Yeezy Sneakers Starting May 31st
Adidas has officially announced that they will be restocking their highly coveted YEEZY sneakers this May. The news comes as a relief to fans who have been waiting for a chance to get their hands on more Yeezys.
According to the press release, Adidas will be restocking several popular YEEZY styles, including the 350, 380, 450, 500, 700, Slides, Foam Rnrs, plus many more classic models. We will likely get some brand new models as well. The launch is set to begin on May 31st per adidas’ press release that went out on May 19th. Fans can purchase the sneakers through the Confirmed app or via their website depending on your location. Unfortunately it looks like no other retailers are expected to get pairs at this time.
The YEEZY brand, created by rapper Ye in collaboration with adidas, has been a major player in the sneaker industry since its launch in 2015. The brand’s unique designs and limited releases have made Yeezys some of the most sought-after sneakers on the market.
The upcoming YEEZY launch is sure to be a major event for sneakerheads and YEEZY fans alike. It’s a chance for those who missed out on previous releases to finally get their hands on a pair. And for those who already own a pair, it’s an opportunity to add to their collection.
“The release will mark the first time that products have been available to consumers since adidas terminated the Yeezy partnership in October 2022. The products will be existing designs and designs initiated in 2022 for sale in 2023.” Adidas has also announced that, “Additional releases of existing inventory are currently under consideration, but timing is yet to be determined.”
They didn’t stop production in October when the partnership was terminated as they wanted to honor the commited production orders they had in place with all the factories to protect them from being negatively affected cancellations. This news is sure to excite fans who are always on the lookout for the latest YEEZY drops.
Overall, this YEEZY launch is going to be a major event. Mark your calendars for May 31st for the US launch. Europe launch will be June 1st, then Australia, New Zealand, and Asia will launch on June 2nd. Be on the lookout on our social media channels as we will be posting official images and early looks of all upcoming drops. See below for official press release from adidas.
- Multiple New Yeezy Sample Models Hit eBay
As Yeezy fans are still left wondering if we will ever see more Yeezy sneakers hit retailers, with or without adidas. What makes it worse is seeing new models hit the internet as of late with no updates from Yeezy in site. As of now we are only able to get our Yeezy fix with these recent never before seen samples that have surfaced on EBay. Here’s the rundown on two new models below.
A few months back we featured the first public look at a new YZY 700 V3 Foam Knit sample in black. This time around we have a look at the Foam 700 V3 in the Azael colorway. This model was already in development for YEEZY, and has been in development since beginning of 2022.
The YZY 700 V3 Foam Knit borrows its general shape and design cues from the original 700 V3, but unlike a typical sneaker, it doesn’t have a separate midsole, upper, or sockliner. The slip-on is constructed from an EVA foam material, with the upper cage and soles being one piece. It functions as a laceless version of the V3, and is equipped with an integrated neoprene sockliner fused to the foam upper. Then Foam 700 V3 still features the polyurethane cushioning from the OG 700 V3 inside instead of Boost.
Next up, the Yzy Foam Rnr V2 sample has also surfaced. They are still made from injected EVA foam just like the original. This newly shared sample features a Mx finish in a mix of black, orange, and grey. The Mx design is more prominent on this version and still offers the convenience of a slip on while still giving the resilience of a sneaker.
The laceless, tongueless foam silhouette features strategic cutouts in the top and sides, this time in a more oval shape, while the overall clog has a more sleek design. The outsole features the orange and grey mix, while wavy lines make up the traction patterns with linear indentions added as well. The small adidas logo is omitted on version 2, leaving the only branding on the clog inside.
Let us know your thoughts on these new models that were originally planned to drop at the end of 2022 and beginning off 2023. Check out our new page Yeezyinfluence2 for more update on all things Yeezy.
- New Yeezy Mx Slides Surface
Recently produced Yeezy Mx Slides have hit the internet in sample colorways from 2021. The Slides go all the way back to 2018 during one of Ye’s late night Twitter leaks he first revealed to the world a line up of pastel 350s, 500s, a few 700s, and this new 350 V2 with a see through stipe. Ye had everyone on the edge of their seat waiting for the next reveal. Then he posts an on foot of a Blue Foam Slide.
At first, similar to a lot of new Yeezy silhouettes, they were met with mixed opinions. Twitter erupted from people loving them, to people calling them Jail slippers. To fans even saying this is the future of footwear, to others saying Gummy shark 10s and so on.
Fast forward to December 2019 they finally launch. Ye drops the Bone, Resin, and Desert Sand colorways. Even though they sat longer than most Yeezys they still sold out. These in particular if you wanted them you could have gotten them for retail on drop day. Of course there were people that mocked them and didn’t get a pair. Low and behold, once people started posting the new slides on Instagram the climate shifted virtually overnight. Those that clowned them were now salty they missed out for the $55 retail. What was once the mocked “jail slippers” became the most sought after footwear in 2020.
Back in 2020 we leaked a few sample Yeezy Slide colorways featuring the a new Mx design with multiple colors. One pair came in a light tan with a mix brown and greys throughout. The second colorway featured a cream base mixed with khaki and a faded pastel blue. This new design was a great addition to the model. Unfortunately we’re only got to see one coloray release with this new Mx pattern when the Ochre Slides dropped December 2021. While these had the new pattern they were still an all tonal colorway so we didn’t get the full effect.
Now two years after we initialy leaked the first two Mx Slide Samples, early sneaker collector snkr_vn123 posted some retail ready colorways. The tags say they were made in April 2022. When we originally got our first look at the samples we were told this style would eventually release, but neither of these colorways were ever on the schedule to launch. This would of been a great move for the Yeezy Slides being able to add more colors into the silhouette. Something that worked great for the Yzy Foam Rnr.
What are your thoughts on all these new models and colorways surfacing? We recently seen the new Tactical 500 High along with a ton of 350’s surface as of late. Are you still on the Yeezy Hype or has this break changed your mind and you’ve moved toward other brands for your sneaker fix. Be sure to keep it locked to our Instagram for more Yeezy news and updates.
- New Yeezy 500 Tactical Boot Surfaces
The first time we seen a version of this new boot was back in the Summer of 2020 when Ye joined Chicago Public Schools students protests. Over the years this boot has seemed like a myth with very few images of samples available. Now we finally get a look at a retail ready pair, but is it too late?
The Yeezy 500 Tactical Bt brings in a mix of two of Yeezy’s most popular silhouettes. They incorporate design cues from the YZY SZN 4 Combat boots, while adding another twist using the Yeezy 500 adiprene+ sole.
Premiere sneaker store Request Boutique CLT brings us our first look the retail ready Yeezy 500 Tactical Bt. The upper consists of premium suede overlays at the toe box and heel. A ballistic style nylon paired with nubuck fill out the rest of the military style upper. The high top design features a slightly padded tongue and collar. The ankle collar this time around is much smaller on the tactical boot compared to previous boot models from Yeezy.
Other details include a tonal upper and rope laces in a charcoal finish. Metal ring and speed lace eyelets coming in silver add to the combat boot motif. The newest design cue we haven’t seen on a Yeezy Boot before, although likely have wondered what if. The Tactical Boot comes with the addition of the Yeezy 500 adiprene+ sole. This sole has long been one of the most comfortable from the brand, guaranteeing comfort and support from the new Hybrid Boot.
Per our sources, the factories contracted to make Yeezy footwear have never stopped making shoes since the split in October. There is still no set date on if/when shoes will be released by adidas. Whether that’s in another limited partnership with Ye, or adidas releasing them on their own as neither have went public yet. Check below for a more detailed look of the Boots and keep it locked to our social media channels. Our new Instagram is Yeezyinfluence2, and we are no longer affiliated with Influencedrops.
- ANOTHER YZY FOAM RNR COLORWAY SURFACES
We have a first look at another unreleased YZY FOAM RNR colorway, thanks to our friends at Request Boutique CLT. This new colorway is anticipated to to launch later this year as long as Ye and Adidas go through with releasing already produced stock drone before the split. Foam footwear has dominated the sneaker industry thanks to the YZY FOAM RNR and YZY Slide. Today, you can see that every sneaker company is moving toward creating their own foam footwear designs, and these small fake fashion houses just blantly copying them. Here’s is the rundown on the newest YZY FOAM RNR colorway.
The YZY FOAM RNR Carbon comes in a mix of injected EVA foam and algae-harvested technologies in a similar color as the also unreleased Yzy Slide Granite. As far as FOAM RNRS this colorway while also similar to the Onyx, is a few shades lighter than the previously released color. This combination offers lightweight durability while while being environmentally friendly.
These shoes are the ideal footwear for any occasion because they are created in the same laceless, tongueless style that Ye had moved toward until the partnership abruptly ended in October with Adidas. The outsole’s design includes several indentions and a wave like traction pattern, and is a built-in component of the shoe, unlike most others. Under the heel, one of the indentations bears a faintly embossed adidas emblem. Further from the words “Foam Rnr” there is no other branding on the slip-on.
While multiple sources close to the Yeezy brand have informed us Ye and Adidas have reached an agreement to release already produced pairs. Neither brands have announced publicly that is the case. We can only keep our fingers crossed. For more upcoming Yeezy news and updates by keeping alerts turned on for all our social media channels below and let us know your opinions about the YZY FOAM RNR “Carbon.“
- Ye and Adidas Reach New Agreement For Remaining Yeezy Stock
In October of 2022, Adidas shocked the world as they announced their split with Ye and his Yeezy brand, which ended up in a very public manner. In general, it is fairly clear why Adidas decided to discontinue working with Ye. To begin with, Kanye was the one who formally started the breakup. Then Ye took to social media with anti-Semitic outbursts during which he praised leaders such as Adolf Hitler. But some would argue Adidas only chose to terminate their contract after they started to get a ton of backlash online for not saying anything at all. Their only choice was to disassociate with Ye after that kind of conduct. As a result, Adidas management stated they owned the Yeezy catalog and could do whatever they wanted with it.
Unreleased Yzy Foam Rnr: Clay Taupe and Stone Salt
However, this left Adidas with unsold Yeezy shoes valued at $520 million. Adidas stated they can continue to market Yeezy designs even without the Yeezy logo, but the $520 million in stock in question still had Ye’s emblems. It was also very obvious that there would be a huge decline in consumer interest with Ye not tied to the brand. The brand was consequently trapped with the inventory, which led to rumors that the business would lose more than $1 billion in revenue this year. Adidas has therefore been frantically looking for methods to figure out how to move the already produced stock to recoup its prior investment. As a result, several extremely intriguing speculations have started to spread on social media.
After terminating the agreement, adidas said that the Yeezy brand will end while also shutting down the Yeezy Supply web store. The remaining Yeezy stock would subsequently be marketed under the adidas name, with no Yeezy markings on the designs, according to shareholder calls and meetings. Now, it’s alleged that an agreement has been reached between the two sides to sell the remaining inventory of Yeezy shoes. It’s looking like there will Not be any new Yeezy branded designs at this time. But Adidas plans to only sell current Yeezy designs that have already been produced. This news isn’t exactly what most Yeezy fans wanted, but if we aren’t getting new designs and colorways, this will have to do.
Unreleased Yzy Slides: Granite, Azure. Slate Grey
Only time will tell if either party want to even get back into an actual partnership again after both sides already took the gloves off since the October split. If they can come to an agreement to start making new designs again and a new contract they both can get behind, it will benefit both parties and especially the fans that have rode for Ye all these years.
Stay tuned for more details as this story unfolds, and check out images of unreleased heat that we can look forward to seeing drop sometime in 2023. This isn’t even close to the amount of models and colorways that have already been produced.

- Ye Gets Married To Yeezy Designer Bianca Censori
Kanye West recently wed Bianca Censori, a Yeezy employee, in a private Beverly Hills ceremony.
According to reports, Ye and Censori exchanged wedding rings without submitting a marriage certificate to make their union legally binding. Censori, who appears to have worked as an architectural designer for the fashion brand for a few years now, and West reportedly said “I do” and exchanged wedding rings.
The couple has not publicly announced their marriage, but Censori, was seen eating at the Waldorf on Monday with Ye. Ye also made a clear reference to his ostensible new wife in the song “Censori Overload” that was released last month.
The length of their relationship is unknown, however Censori joined Yeezy in November 2020. The unexpected nuptials take place just two months after Ye finalized his seven-year divorce from Kim Kardashian.
- After Adidas’ Split With Ye, They Are Stuck With $530 Million In Inventory
Ye has managed to stay out of the headlines for the last couple of weeks, but he’s back again, well, sort of, as reports have shown after Adidas split with Ye, they have over half a billion in Yeezy products already produced without an actual path of moving it
As the Financial Times reported, some previous Adidas executives have stated that Adidas has relied too much on the “Yeezy Cash Cow” as other product lines were not growing as expected even before the pandemic. Adidas hasn’t been able to turn its product lines into stable profit growth.
Yeezy was the only adidas product line that wasn’t affected by the 2019 slowdown and even through the pandemic. “It was the only product moving,” stated someone knowledgeable about the situation. Since the brand was doing so well, Adidas started moving Yeezy into more markets and releasing more models and higher stock numbers.
From 2019 to the time adidas parted ways with Ye in October 2022, the Yeezy brand had grown twofold and started delivering €1.7 billion in annual income, or 7% of the group’s total. As the Financial Times Reports, Adidas didn’t let their investors know how reliant they were on just the Yeezy Brand alone. Adidas has tried to grow other product lines with more celebrities like Pharrell Williams, Beyoncé, and now Jerry Lorenzo. Yet none of these product lines come close to what the Yeezy brand has done in just a few years.
It adds insult to injury with Adidas not being able to sell anything in Russia due to them invading Ukraine. A place where they held the top spot in that market. With sales down in China, it seems like it is falling apart for the German Sportswear Brand. To prevent a costly loss, Adidas is currently holding onto unsold Yeezy shoes worth more than €500 million in potential income and is desperately trying to figure out how to sell them under its brand.
As we have shown, what will likely be their first “Yeezy” release without Yeezy in the Granite 350 V2. They have already switched the official images from the usual tan background Yeezy has used for just about its whole run. They now have the official photos in the same look as any regular Adidas release to fit more in line with the Adidas brand. But If social media is any preview of how Yeezy fans will react to Adidas releasing Yeezys without Ye, it’s not looking good for Adidas. Yeah, some people say they love the shoes no matter what. Still, it’s overwhelmingly in the favor that most Yeezy fans have already moved on if Ye is out of the picture and would rather wait likely a couple of years to see what Ye comes out with either on his own or if he teams up with another sneaker brand.
Make sure to keep it locked to all our social media channels to stay up to date on all things Yeezy and updates on all upcoming sneaker brands.
- As More Early “Yeezys” Surface on Social, Does Adidas Have What It Takes To Market Them As Their Own?
One thing adidas is good at is shooting itself in the foot after relying so heavily on the Yeezy brand, which is the only product line that has been selling out to carry the brand along. It seems like they make the same bad decisions over and over.
For example, when the 4D technology was still hot, long before the ultraboost fell off. Adidas didn’t make the technology widely available until no one cared about it. Now you can buy their ultraboost and 4D models off their site basically at wholesale. Considering they have discounts where you can purchase both for sometimes close to half off.
Now it’s understandable with all the Yeezy inventory they have; of course, they want to sell the stock to recoup some money. They had already finished production runs of Yeezy models for the original lineup for 2022 and even produced some meant for 2023. When the split first happened, they put their foot down, saying no matter what, they owned the designs and were selling them.
It’s more apparent to Adidas now more than ever that the only reason people have stuck around for 75 colorways of the 350 V2, a shoe that honestly isn’t even in style anymore was only because it’s a Yeezy. At the same time, most couldn’t get them when they were so limited and you had to get them on the secondary market for $500 to $800 depending on color. With no Ye they won’t sale like they use to.
Now, as more colorways are surfacing, people aren’t going to buy the shoes without Ye, especially at the regular prices, the models were listed at before. On social, you can see that people have already left the brand because of Ye’s departure. No one wants to buy a “Yeezy” that’s just a regular adidas shoe. Suppose adidas does move forward with producing more colorways and models, rather than just selling what’s been produced. They will likely make even more 350 V2 Colorways at a higher rate than they initially did when Ye was there, and people aren’t going to keep buying them.
If you look at Adidas’ previous track record, they are notorious for taking something that once worked and using the same formula well after it isn’t working anymore. That’s why they are still making almost every running sneaker modeled after the ultraboost, because it was once their most popular model. Which Ye was the reason the ultraboost blew up.
In our opinion, Aiudidas should just cut their losses, they decided to cut Ye out. They should sell their Yeezy product for at least $20 to $40 lower. Then if they want to use that design pallet from the Yeezy brand, then they need to make some brand new designs. In the end, they are just being hypocrites still trying to sell the Yeezy brand as their own. All they will be doing is still relying on that they were once Yeezy’s.
Let us know your thoughts on the situation on our social medias are you still buying Adidas Yeezy’s with no Ye?

- A Detailed Look: Yeezy 350 V2 Space Ash Due In 2023
Once slated for a January release, we have the best look yet at the Yeezy 350 V2 Space Ash. Coming in light grey, this tonal colorway is reminiscent of the 2020 Tail Light release. These feature the same style of upper seen on the Zyon 350 V2.
The newer static design weaved in the Primeknit consists of a smooth area middle ways on the lateral and medial sides. Although, those designs in the uppers do not stand out in the re-engineered primeknit since this is a tonal colorway. The fan-favorite pull tab is back for this colorway, an attribute that received little complaints in the past.
The monofilament stripe, a few shades darker than the upper, isn’t as translucent as we’ve seen on 350’s in the past. The stripe and pull tab breaks up the monochromatic look while adding to the aesthetic. Conventional round laces finish off the upper, matching the rest of the sneaker.
The upper is fixed to their signature ribbed TPU midsole and rubber outsole. Both come in a darker shade of grey than the upper. Full length drop-in Boost™ technology makes this one of the most comfortable sneakers ever. Other details include grey round laces, defined center stitching, and made from sustainable and recycled materials as part of Adidas’ End Plastic Waste Program.
When Will The Yeezy 350 V2 Space Ash Release?
Unfortunately, there is no exact date on when they will drop. Production started in October; therefore, what’s already in warehouses and early pairs have the YEEZY branding on insoles and boxes. So that has to be figured out, but expect to see these to hit shelves in 1st Quarter 2023 along with other models and colorways as production in China has never stopped.

- More Unreleased Yeezys Surface
Well, there has been a considerable slowdown of early Yeezy pairs lately as the divorce of the two brands goes into its third month. As it’s genuinely unsure what’s next, SolesByZay has just blessed the feed with multiple 450 Slides in the Cream colorway.
We leaked the first sample in white way back in 2020; then Ye leaked the rest of that year’s calendar on Twitter. Although that calendar wasn’t accurate at the time he posted it. It had the Cream YZY 450 Slide set for an end-of-2020 launch that ended up not happening.
Fast forward a few months, VLord sent us the first look at the new colorway. At this time, he told us the sizing was way off, and for example, if you wear a size ten, you would need to buy a size 8 for them to fit. The sizing is likely why were delayed for so long, but we can only speculate.
In 2022, almost two years later, more pairs have just surfaced. We heard rumblings of a rumored drop in 2023, but we never received confirmation. But seeing a ton of early pairs confirms that was likely the plan, well, at least until October.
The YZY 450 Slide Cream is a one-piece Eva foam similar to the OG YZY Slides. They are dressed in an all-tonal look, finished in cream. Although these aren’t the exact twin of the YZY 450 sneaker, these still take a lot of inspiration from them. The top comes in a webbed look and splits into five appendages down to the midsole.
The midsole boasts a similar shape to its predecessor. The distinctive design exaggerates the look as the appendages meet the sculpted midsole. The flat footbed offers immediate step-in comfort and is met with debossed adidas logo. While everything is a one-piece mold, the outsole has the same design as the 450 sneakers, including the wavy traction pattern.
There is no news yet of who owns the IP for these, Ye does hold the design of the original slide, but also means it’s unclear if these will ever drop. See below and enjoy more detailed looks and let us know on our social media your thoughts on these. As soon as more info is available, we will update this article and social media.
- New 500 colorway emerges
This Yeezy 500, while being multi-colored, it is far from some of the louder colors like Sumac or Enflame. They are reconstructed with an upper composed of suede, premium leather, and mesh with nubuck accents. The tone is a light tan with a faded yellow tint on this colorway. The mesh underlays are also tan but omit yellow.
The mudguard sits above the midsole on the lateral side, providing support and scuff resistance while adding definition to the sneaker’s design. The 3M reflective piping around the mudguard and the place eyelets offer visibility in the dark.
The 500 silhouette rides on an adiPRENE+ midsole in a tan finish. Even though the 500 doesn’t use BOOST™, this is still one of the most comfortable sneakers from the Yeezy brand. Comfort is due to the mix of premium materials for the upper along with the adiPRENE+ cushioning, which still gives a lot of response. A tan rubber outsole provides traction and stability, closing out the sneaker. Other details include oval laces and Ortholite insole.
When will adidas drop the new 500?
Look for these to launch in early 2023 from adidas on Confirmed and select retailers globally. No official images have loaded at this time. One thing to note is some early pairs do say Yeezy on the tag since they were previously produced before the split, so they will likely be changed on the pairs still in warehouses. The insoles and boxes will have to change as well.
- Adidas Staying True to Their Word, Will Drop Non-Yeezy Branded Colorways 2023
As 2022 comes to a close, it looks like adidas is doubling down on releasing Yeezy’s without the Yeezy branding. Their first drop will be the 350 V2 Granite/ Core Black.
Taking inspiration from the 2016 Yeezy 350 V2 era, his colorway features a grey upper with green hues throughout. The upper is composed of re-engineered Primeknit. While similar to the Slate/Core black released in September, these opt for a much darker look. A monofilament post-dyed stripe comes in core black with SPLY-350 branding in grey down the sneaker’s lateral side. The medial side boasts a monochromatic look making it hard to see any designs in the Primeknit.
Rounding out the look is a dark grey semi-translucent midsole wrapped around a full-length drop in BOOST™ technology, with a matching outsole. The 350 V2 is also made with 50% recycled materials. Other details are standard lace eyelets and conventional tonal round laces, and this colorway omits the pull tab.
Will adidas Actually Release Non-Yeezy Branded Models?
These were initially supposed to launch in December, but it looks like adidas plans for these to be their frost drop after the split with Ye. As you can see in the official image, the look has changed to how adidas does images of all their sneakers. The kids and infant sizes haven’t loaded, nor have any other model that was supposed to release this in 2022.
Expect to see these launch in January 2023 in Full Family Sizing; retail will be $230, $160 & $140. They will release on Confirmed and select retailers. Stay tuned for more updates as more information becomes available.
