It’s been a while since Kanye West announced he was breaking things off with Nike to collaborate with Adidas, and for about that same amount of time, we’ve been itching to see what the rapper has been working on with the athletic brand. With his range for Adidas rumored to be debuting this week, it’s only natural that Yeezy would give us a little teaser at the Grammys.
Last night, we got a glimpse of Kanye’s project with the brand, thanks to a backstage snap before his Grammys performance, courtesy of Virgil Abloh, Kanye’s friend and designer behind Off-White. Abloh posted an image straight from Yeezy’s dressing room, a shoe selfie with all of Kanye’s team rocking the same kicks. If there was any doubt that this is what Kanye has up for his Adidas collaboration, a quick look at Kylie Jenner’s (of all people) Instagram shows her sporting the same shoes, captioning the photo “Yeezy.”
Kylie’s shoes are more of a neutral camel color, while Yeezy and team opted for what looks like grayish. The kicks are rumored to be called the “Yeezy Boost” and boast suede laces and a Velcro strap. Kanye apparently also wore the shoes to the Roc Nation Pre-Grammy Brunch earlier this weekend.
Sneakerheads, rejoice: The shoes you’ve long waited for are nearly in your clutches.
