Kanye West‘s adidas YEEZY line has officially announced its latest style: the YEEZY 700 V3 “Arzareth.” A cool, blue-tinted colorway that diverges from West’s overarching use of earth palettes, the “Arzareth” is the first 700 V3 release since April’s “Alvah,” and follows shortly after the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Israfil” — a shoe whose religious-tinged moniker has landed it in hot water with the Muslim community.
Streaks of blue and white interspersed with grey run across the monofilament engineered mesh upper, while a translucent, glow-in-the-dark TPU cage adds structure. Underneath this technical assemblage sits a black neoprene bootie for a snug, sock-like fit. Diverging from the precedent set by the YEEZY BOOST 700 and YEEZY BOOST 700 V2, the 700 V3 features a streamlined, BOOST-less midsole that uses PU encapsulated in an EVA foam shell for a lightweight, traditional athletic shoe feel — and drives down the price point of the model by $100 USD. Herringbone outsoles round off the look.
Alongside models like the YEEZY QNTM and the YEEZY 500 High, the YEEZY 700 V3 is one of the models leading West and adidas’s footwear line into a new generation. Interested parties can expect it to release in full family sizes on the adidas webstore and YEEZY Supply on August 29, with men’s pairs priced at $200 USD, kids at $130 USD and infants at $100 USD.
