One of the most amazing sneaker news we got this year was the flying rumors on a possible new Yeezy sneaker collab – something that has never ever happened before! Yeezy in itself is a collaboration between the German sportswear giant, Adidas, and the College Dropout, Kanye West! But this year, we’re about to witness one of the greatest moments in Yeezy history – an actual new Yeezy silhouette with the New York Knicks’ very own Derrick Rose! It’s the drop of the all-new YEEZY D ROSE – AKA the wild, wild YZY D Rose.
This Yeezy is all about the D – all about Derrick.
Now, true to Yeezy’s nature, this won’t be just any Yeezy. No, it’s got to be the most epic out-of-this-world sneaker in the entire sneaker existence. The NBA basketball player seemed to fall right into the Yeezy mindset with the alien, futuristic vibe of these Yeezy D Rose basketball performance kicks! This is the long-awaited YZY D ROSE teased back in August 2020 – so you can imagine the levels of excitement around this bizarre sneaker. It also happens to be Kanye’s second try at BSKTBL performance Yeezys after the Quantums. BUT, this does look like a pretty fishy basketball sneaker – you’ll see what we mean!
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming release of the Yeezy D Rose and everything you need to know about the drop! It’s all about the strangest Yeezys this year. We ain’t mad though. You know what weird-looking Yeezys mean? Cash on resale. It’s the Foam Runners all over again! Keep reading.
Yeezy D Rose: Futuristic or Prehistoric?
So, we all know that Kanye loves Kanye… LOVES Kanye. This might be one of the reasons why we’ve never had a Yeezy collab. This puts a lot of expectations on the new Yeezy D Rose – no pressure Derrick.
As usual, the first time we laid eyes on this sneaker was on Twitter with one of ‘Ye’s random posts. People had a LOT to say about this Yeezy because of how much it resembled a fish fossil. In light of the recent Friends’ reunion, we definitely think this is a sneaker any paleontologist would love to cop. And just like most of Yeezy’s random outbursts on Twitter, it was radio silence. Even Derrick Rose’s wife Alaina Anderson teased the kicks on her IG.
She’s also been coincidentally rocking a bunch of Yeezys on her IG, and mostly Foam Runners. Could this possibly be a way of hinting that the new Yeezy D Rose is about to drop soon?
The so-called basketball performance Yeezy D rose is a slip-on sneaker with a very VERY strange silhouette – even stranger than the Foam Runners. Yikes.
It looks like it features the same Yeezy material featured in the Foam Runners, so we theorize that it might carry a similar retail price which retails for about $80. BUT, on the other hand, this still is the first-ever Yeezy collab; so, they might be more expensive. YZY D Rose also features weird fish-skeleton-like ridges all over in a bone-white colorway. That’s basically all there is to this sneaker.
YZY x Derrick Rose Release Date?
To be real with you guys, we honestly can’t imagine how we’re supposed to dominate the basketball court in these YZY D Rose slip-on shoes. But, we all know how the FOAM RNNRS went. It was all fun and games until it was reselling for an average of $400 on the aftermarket. We know for sure that when it’s release day, we coppin’. We know it’ll be a savage drop, so we ain’t taking no copping risks with Yeezy D Rose. If you’re feeling a little rusty on your sneaker copping game, here’s a guide to keep you going!
Speaking of release day, it’s still in the TBD phase. But, we’ll definitely keep you posted! So, make sure you keep it locked on our blog for the latest news on the Yeezy D Rose and other hyped releases coming your way in 2021!
In the meantime, you should try your hand at copping the greatest upcoming Yeezy releases like the Adidas Yeezy 700 V1 Enflame dropping on the 11th of June! Or maybe even some Swoosh action? If Kanye wears Nike, so can you!
