With all the hype generated around the Yeezy Boost 750 and its June 11th release, it’s easy to forget about other Yeezy releases. The Yeezy Boost Beluga (what a cool name, right!) is set to be released this August. People now have Yeezy sneakers to celebrate the coming and the end of summer!
Yeezy Boost Beluga
Specifically, the rumors are that the shoes will hit stores and the internet for purchase on August 15th. The sneakers are part of the Yeezy Boost 350 family and will no doubt cause chaos upon their release.
While there hasn’t been much detail on the exact style of the shoes, some features have been leaked. For example, the shoes will feature a fresh and sharp white “Beluga” colorway, with little hints of gray featured throughout the pairs. Furthermore, similar to its predecessors, the shoes feature a woven upper and a distinctive sole unit. These shoes are definitely going to…and really already have caused a serious stir among fans.
The rumors really started last fall when Kim Kardashian posted photos as teasers all over the internet featuring various shoes that would, supposedly, be featured in the upcoming collection. Once Kim posted that photo, it was game over as fans were desperate to learn all they could about the upcoming releases. It’s no surprise that the rumors and gossip continued through the rest of 2015 and then throughout the month of February when the Yeezy Season 3 fashion show took place in New York. They’ve even continued all the way up to now; summer time.
With that being said, what really fired up the excitement was when Kanye West was spotted wearing them when he recently went on a trip to Cuba with his family. However, the rapper has been spotted wearing shoes that were custom made solely for him in the past. How can we be sure these shoes will really be released? Fret not Yeezy fans and sneakerheads, there are also photos and posts made all over the internet that feature the shoes. Also, as mentioned previously, Kim Kardashian posted a photo of many different styles of shoes.
However, in true advertising fashion the various photos were simply teasers. People were sure that the sneakers would be released in February, but were sadly mistaken. Neither Kanye nor adidas has confirmed anything since. Fans haven’t given up and now are almost certain that the white shoes featured in that photo (dubbed, “Beluga”) will be the next shoes set to release.
So, what can we take from this? The shoes exist, there’s no doubt about that. However, no one, except for Kanye, Kim, some people at adidas, and maybe her family members, know exactly when the shoes will be released. Don’t get discouraged Yeezy fans and don’t put those wallets away just yet! Just be patient and the time will come.
