Is This Kanye’s First Shoe With adidas?
Shown here, in what appears to be a release schedule, is a photo of Kanye West flanked by two colorways of an adidas mashup, called the “Tubular Snake.” What makes this interesting is that the models seeming created by Kanye are lumped in with adidas Originals, but resemble silhouettes from their Y-3 line, the very Y-3 umbrella Kanye was presumed to be working under. From the details of the photo it appears that we could be finding out as early as March of next year.
It is quite an interesting shoe, a “Frankenstein’s Monster” take on the traditional cross trainer, offering a thick cushioned outsole we see utilized in modern day runners and a inlet midsole, most likely housing some new crazy comfortable and luxe cushioning system.
Above, we see implementation of a fused upper of various materials, offering a lightweight and modest upper that still boasts technological advancement, innovation, and style all whipped into one, aka a cocktail we’re sure is fit enough for Kanye’s chalice of a goblet.
Remember people, this is only mere speculation and not a report on an official release. For all we know these could just be inspired by Kanye and not actually a design he had a hand in. We, like the rest of you folks out there, have to wait and get the official word from adidas and the man Kanye himself. Hey, he’s due for a tweet anyway.
