adidas Yeezy 450
Kanye and adidas do not see the end of the Yeezy line by any means. The colour palette is vast, the ideas are bigger than the horizon, and the design team is motivated to create more impressive sneakers. But the sneaker community is not only treated to new colourways, but also new silhouettes.
Such was the case in the beginning of 2021, when the latest Yeezy was unveiled: a silhouette that, at first glance, looks much more aggressive than its predecessors. The new model is called the adidas Yeezy 450, and the first colourway was released in March 2021. Find out everything about the sneaker and its style here.
What the Sneaker Was Originally Called - adidas Yeezy 451
The long-standing duo dropped this adidas Yeezy 450 in the new year — a lifestyle sneaker that continues the massive Yeezy empire with an edgy look. But actually, the sneaker should have been given a different name. Mr. West had personally revealed the first leaks and sketches and talked about an adidas Yeezy 451.
Originally, the sneakers were even supposed to debut in 2019, but there were presumably some hefty complications at the time, so a later date was set. In 2021, the unveiling finally came when adidas, as well as the first retailers, added the adidas Yeezy 450 to the calendar. And so, the name "450" was then fixed.
What Makes the adidas Yeezy 450 Special?
We have become accustomed to Kanye's crazy style. The Yeezys always have a totally crazy silhouette, multi-layered elements, and outlandish colours. But the new adidas Yeezy 450 doesn't quite suit everyone's taste, with the shape taking a lot of getting used to. Indeed, the simple look is composed of the one-piece Primeknit upper and the beefy sole. Other details such as additional overlays or eye-catching prints are simply omitted from the new silhouette.
The sneakers also have a very comfortable entry because of the sock-like upper, which is quite reminiscent of the Ultraboost Mid. On the other hand, a rather light sole made of reactive EVA foam cushions every step, while the raised heels, toes, and tooth-like design emphasise the aggressive look. Then, there are thick rope laces, which have, so far, been colour-matched to the upper. They also lace through the knitted upper, which we already know from other models, and wavy outsoles for increased grip then round off the design perfectly.
adidas Yeezy 450 in 2021
We can't really say much about the adidas Yeezy 450 yet, as the silhouette is yet to unfold. But if we look at the previous silhouettes and consider their early days, as well as the evolution, we could expect a flourishing future.
So far, only the adidas Yeezy 450 "Cloud White" has been released. We therefore expect more colourways with additional details. It's even possible that Kanye is working on ongoing versions as we speak, because leaks about a V2 and V3 are already circulating on the net. Like the adidas Yeezy 700, the eye-catching one-piece sole of the Yeezy 450 could later drop in bright blue or orange hues. We will definitely stay tuned in the future and keep you updated.
