It can be, at times, difficult to understand the complexities of Kanye West. A notable lateral thinker, West does not only think outside the box, he took said box, dismantled it, and disintegrated it. His alternate ideas of the world show through in his futuristic footwear designs, too, though we just can’t seem to understand why his newest silhouette is releasing an all-white option in winter, and now, an all-black option in summer. News of a dark YEEZY 450 “Dark Slate” broke earlier today mere hours after the confirmed global release of its predecessor, the YEEZY 450 “Cloud White”.
Regardless of the season, YEEZY’s all-black sneakers are always a hit, and we’re expecting the mid-year Dark Slate drop to relive that success. Now, after revealing the pair in Photoshop form, some on-foot looks at a sample pair have appeared courtesy of @yankeekicks.
Grab a quick look at the Photoshop render and on-foot looks here below, and be sure to keep your eyes locked on our official Twitter account for further updates as we edge closer to its release this June.
