While Yeezy Season 2 apparel appears to have no known delivery date (perhaps put aside in favor of focusing on eminently easier and more profitable concert apparel), Kanye West has let it be known he’s launching men’s and women’s footwear on June 6th. Offerings include a military boot ($645), a sandal, one with a Lucite heel and clear plastic upper and the second in all over sand suede ($445), a knit ankle boot ($895) and an over-the-knee boot, both in sand and dark forest green ($995).
Probably the military boot will sell out pretty quickly, but it will be interesting to see what happens with the women’s shoes. The price is actually fairly reasonable and yet, they’re not super differentiated from other high-end designer offerings except that they’re designed by West, a fact that tends to hold more weight with men than it does women (read why that is here). That said, Ye’s wife, Kim Kardashians, has been spotted in the shoes and she aint no slouch when it comes to moving product.
These will be available to purchase on YeezySupply.com, starting Monday, June 6th, plus other retailers. Since Adidas isn’t invovled with Ye’s collection shoes and apparel, it’s a little harder to know where they may pop up. Here are the retailers we know are carrying it thus far: Antonioli, Barneys, Browns, Cruise Fashion, End Clothing, Fruition Las Vegas, Luisaviarome, MyTheresa, RSVP Gallery, SlamJamSocialism and SSense.
If none of this is of any interest to you because you’re saving your coins for the next Yeezy Boost launch, Adidas Originals is dropping the 750 in light grey on June 11th.
