After a limited, city-exclusive rollout in February, Kanye West's take on the basic-black, chunky style drops tomorrow (May 23). The design ascribes to the bigger-is-better approach, with a "700" side stamp as oversized as the sole. The upper is lightweight nylon and the thick sole mixes the extra cushion of foamy Adidas Boost technology with the firm grip of a rubber outsole. Think bounce and bulk in basic black-on-black.
You can blame the Yeezy Boost 700 in part for the "dad shoe" trend. The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Wave Runner” debuted in August 2017, creating buzz soon after, when Chance the Rapper laced a pair up to appear on Saturday Night Live. With a debut colourway in grey with black, teal, and orange, it initially met with a love-hate response--but those originals can now fetch up to $1,000 or more on collector sites.
