adidas Yeezy 450

The adidas Yeezy 450 is a lifestyle sneaker from the Kanye West-led and Three Stripes-backed Yeezy imprint. First teased as the Yeezy 451 in July 2018 via sketches by Mr. West himself, the sneaker debuts on March 4th, 2021 as a YEEZY SUPPLY-exclusive.

Originally included in the “YEEZY 2019” roster, the the model features a sock-like, Primeknit upper akin to the UltraBOOST Mid. Its most distinct design detail, however, is the single-piece tooling that extends up to the shoe's collar via its teeth-reminiscent cage. Modified by Steven Smith, “The Godfather of dad shoes,” the Yeezy 450's bottom-half may boast the same algae-makeup found in the divisive Yeezy Foam Runner. Furthermore, it's likely EVA foam, not BOOST, has been used for cushioning.

Although Mr. West previewed dozens of sneakers sporting the jagged sole unit (potentially V2 and V3 iterations of the model) in a July 2019 story by Forbes and even wore a pair during Paris Fashion Week the following year, the first new Yeezy launch of 2021 will debut in a “Cloud White” colorway. The full scope of the silhouette's lifecycle has yet to unfold, but it's become evident across all public channels that fans of the adidas subsidiary want 'ye to introduce refreshing color palettes to his footwear lineup. Like the original Yeezy 700, the 450's jarring one-piece sole unit may boast bright orange and blue tones later on in its lifecycle, while Primeknit uppers seem ripe for subtle, but notable patterns and detailing.

Pricing for the Yeezy 450 arrives at $200 USD, identical to the BOOST-less Yeezy 700 V3. Sizes for kids have yet to be seen, although they're likely to be offered.
