Coming from someone who isn’t the biggest fan of YEEZY sneakers generally, I have to hand it to Adidas and their collaborator after the revelation that this is one of 20 YEEZY releases.
This look combines military chic with hiking boot vibes. It reminds us of the Nike Air Max Snow boot, with an icier color-way that’s appropriate for all seasons. The sneaker boot also comes in a darker rendition for those who easily get their kicks dirty.
Shoes are both constructed with mesh, suede, and nubuck, it’s a smart patched design which add a textured look. The boot also features a round toe and thickly padded tongue with a cool reflective feature, finished off by a sturdy thick rubber traction sole.
Some are criticizing the creation as too stiff bulky, calling it a “ski boot” effect that forces you to lean forward.
We’re a fan of the light color-way, but not so much the dark ones, which end up looking a little muddier than we’d like. These boots are classic Kanye, but the aesthetic is a little clunky, especially this close to spring.
What does pique our interest is the boost in performance quality, durability and comfort, setting a high bar for competition like Nike.
These mixed material YEEZY Season 7 Desert Boots are currently priced at $295.00 USD. Are they worth it or do they belong in the trash?
