Is it the 550 or the 650?
Early rumors pegged Kanye West’s next model with adidas as being the 550, but new information has surfaced that has that model being called the “650” instead. Sneaker insider Dino Hatfield – better known to the community as baltsneakershow – posted several images of West’s upcoming silhouette along with the caption, “Yeezy Boost 650. YES SIX FIFTY.”
From the images, West’s upcoming model differs from the similarly styled 350s with more translucent gum outsoles along with what appears to be full Primeknit uppers. The 650 also looks to be more of a midcut than its predecessor which was distinctly a lowtop model. Also, it should be worth nothing that the “White” model does differ from its more earth-toned colorways as it features a back heel and collar reminiscent of the design seen on the adidas’ Ultra Boost.
Until adidas makes an official announcement, all we can do is speculate as to what West’s next model will be. With the news of a 750 release next month and baby Yeezys in August, it looks like West is priming to make summer Yeezy season once again. -Complex
