Kanye West and
Uppers are high-cut in traditional basketball shoe style, and split into three defining pieces. The most prominent section of this trifecta is the forefoot and midfoot, which feature a wavy marbled grey exoskeleton above a grey synthetic base and a toe bumper reminiscent of the YEEZY BOOST 700 V2. The throat and collar are made of a black neoprene-style material, the latter of which is bolstered with taped detailing. Finally, the heel provides extra structure with a two-tone grey and silver counter.
Down below, midsoles are made up of semi-translucent rubber and contain a full-length BOOST footbed, visible through a cut-out piece in the heel. Outsoles complete the look with the shoe’s only traditional detail: a wavy herringbone traction pattern.
