Yeezy Samples from the Forbes interview
This week in Yeezy news following the widely publicised interview from Forbes with Kanye West a whole host of Yeezy Samples that were showcased in the piece have began to circulate the internet. Being met with widespread speculation and intrigue. Obviously little is known about the majority of the feature’s models as they are mostly considered to be at the prototype stage. That won’t stop us from having a deeper look and pondering what could be dropping in the future off the back of some of these early stage designs.
Yeezy news: Yeezy Quantum Basketball Sample
One of the most anticipated shoes yet to be released in 2019 is the Yeezy Quantum Basketball trainer. Having already been denounced by the NBA as unfit for on-court play (due to the massive reflective panel at the heel). Spotted on the feet of both Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian. Some potential colourways for the upcoming model have been highlighted in this screenshot from the Forbes interview. Appearing in a multitude of colourways, ranging from the tonal to the vibrant, only time will tell which will make the cut come release day.
Yeezy News: Yeezy 451 Samples
Another model we are expecting to see drop at some point in 2019 is the heavily rumoured Yeezy 451. Thankfully, thanks to these new images we have more to go on than rough sketches and dodgy photos leaked on Instagram. For those who aren’t sure the Yeezy 451 is the one that looks like it’s being swallowed by a giant venus flytrap. Kanye tapped legendary footwear designer Steven Smith, who’s penned some of the greatest running shoes in history, to tweak the design. With it looking like the pair want to be pretty ambitious with the colourways they are experimenting with.
Yeezy news: Yeezy PowerPhase Calabasas samples
During the panning shots of the near thousand shoe collection during the Forbes interview we saw a block of prototypes for the most affordable of the range. The Yeezy Powerphase Calabasas has seen three colourways released to date. A cream, black and grey, but if this is anything to go by we could be seeing a wider variety sometime in the future. Perhaps one of these more neon models finds there way on to shelves sometime soon.
