The KNIT RNNR was first teased all the way back in August 2020, and was originally thought to be called the “TRRL RNNR” or the “Turreliens.” The colorway seen above is dubbed “Case Power Yellow” and offers a two-tone look with yellow on the midsole and upper contrasted by a sandy tan collar. Though the shoe is sheathed entirely in a knit material, it’s very likely there’s some type of standard cushioning setup present in the cored-out midsole as a 100% knit sneaker would not be durable enough for daily outdoor wear. The size is also stamped on the lateral heel in black, but this could very well be a feature of sample pairs.
Early reports from YEEZY Mafia have the YEEZY KNIT RNNR’s release placed at the tail end of 2021 or the start of 2022, but this has yet to be confirmed by West or adidas. Information on a retail price is forthcoming as well.
