Kanye West is widely known as one of the greatest artists of all-time as one of the most iconic producers that the industry has seen. West has also dominated in the fashion world, as he is known for creating his own like of sneakers and slides before with Nike and now, Adidas. West’s designs of these footwear are definitely questionable at times and now, this is the case for another pair of sneakers, which was introduced on the YeezyMafia.com site.
Kanye’s New Yeezy Sneakers Have A Very Different Look
For these new Yeezy sneakers, they are all yellow and white, and have no shoe laces at all. These are called the Knit Runners. While these look very comfortable, many feel that the designs are very unusual and are far from the standards of the designs of West’s sneakers.
“Formerly called “Turreliens” and “TRRL RNR”, this brand new silhouette will be shaped exactly like the 2020’s YEEZY FOAM RNNR, but made entirely out of knitted threads,” as described by YeezyMafia.com. “Just by looking at it we can all definitely imagine how comfortable this brand new sneaker from Mr. West must be.”
Kanye Still Pulls In Big Sales From His Sneakers And Slides
Despite the slander that West gets regarding the designs of his Yeezy sneakers and slides, they still do very well in terms of sales. Whenever a release date arrives, they sell out within the hour, as many fans miss out on opportunities to score a pair. These sneaker heads use various apps in attempts to buy them, but oftentimes, miss out due to high demand. The resale market also posts high prices after those release dates, due to that same skyrocketing demand.
Kanye Has Gap Collaboration Apparel On The Way
Last summer, West also made another power move regarding fashion, and that was signing a 10-year YEEZY collaboration deal with Gap. Both parties were expected to put out the apparel that they designed together at the end of this month. Over a week ago though, Gap came out and revealed that as of now, there is still no official release date for the launch. Like West’s Yeezy slides, these are also expected to be in very high demand and possibly contain high prices.
A Release Date For New Music From Kanye Is Also Unknown
Last summer, West also planned to put out his new “Donda” album. The title of this project would’ve been in honor of his late mother, who passed away back in 2007. This album was set for a July 24 release date but when the midnight time arrived, there was nothing released. West teased some adjustments being made to the album but in the end, there still hasn’t been a Donda album put out to this date. Many fans of his hope that changes sometime this year.
