Kanye West and Rihanna are musical collaborators and fashion competitors. While Rihanna's new series of Puma Creepers are making headlines again," the rapper has found a sneaky way to draw attention back to his equally as coveted kicks. His wife Kim Kardashian teased new Yeezy Boost 750s in a Snapchat video. Remember, the 750s are more like high tops with a strap over the top of the foot, where the 350s are more like low top athletic trainers. In KKW's video, there is tower of boxes, with a single pair of the shoes sitting atop one of the boxes. In the video, Mrs. West jokes that her phone is about to get blown up with calls about these kicks.
This wall-of-shoeboxes tease is the equivalent of sticking a knife in the heart of sneaker pimps and customers who have been clamoring for any pair, color, or style of Boosts, which sell out on the regular.
OK, so now that Kardashian got everyone excited about another round of Yeezy Boosts 750s, what color are they? Are they a hue that we've seen in the past, with either the 350s or the 750s? Or are they different?
There have been tan, the Pirate Black, and the Turtle Dove shoes, as well as West himself rocking a custom pair with a traffic cone orange stripe, which won't be made available.
Let's examine the video and the new pair of 750s.
Ah, there they are. But the lighting isn't great. Still, they look like the previously released grey shade to my eyes.
That said, Hot New Hop Hop noted that these shoes look very much like the first Yeezy Boost 750, which was grey. But the site suggests that there is a big difference in that they have a glow-in-the-dark gum sole, rather than an off-white sole.
Check out this tweet promoting the shoes. They are decidedly grey here. It's the Grey/Gum.
Here's another closer look.
This is the last one, I promise, and it is a screen grab from Kardashian's video. So, yeah, now I am really seeing grey.
So, what's the restock date for the Yeezy Boost 750s? Kardashian did not reveal that. But we do know Rih's Puma Creepers are set to drop on May 26.
Bustle reached out to Addias reps for more information about the 750s. We inquired about the glow-in-the-dark sole and a drop date. There is a rumor June 6 is happening, according to Hypebeast.
