adidas Planning to Re-Up Its Own YEEZY-Inspired Powerphase Model

More “Semi Frozen Yellow” goodness.

By //Footwear

While Kanye West didn’t invent the Powerphase — the model is an OG adidas archive silhouette from the ’80s — the retro sneaker’s return to streetwear relevancy is definitely due to Ye’s Calabasas cosign. Now riding on the current YEEZY Powerphase hype, adidas is planning to offer its own Powerphase model to the general public for 2018, according to Yeezy Mafia.

adidas’s general release Powerphase is reportedly going to be called the Rascal. It stays pretty true to the OG Powerphase’s blueprint with an old school EVA midsole, perforated toe box, adidas branding window accent at the side, and overall leather upper construction. One subtle design update, however, is seen at the side panel where the original perforated Three Stripes motif is replaced with a red and blue strap that stretches from the mudguard to the ankle collar. What indicates this Powerphase’s direct YEEZY inspiration is the fact that one of its debut colorways will be called “Semi Frozen Yellow.”

There are no confirmed details on this potential adidas Rascal model, but sources are stating a slated June 2018 drop and a $90 USD retail price. Check out the two potential debut colorways of the adidas Powerphase-inspired sneakers above and let us know if you’re a fan.

For more footwear news, a new image of the rumored Off-White™ x Nike Air VaporMax collaboration has surfaced.
