Autumn Yeezy: adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Mauve”
Kanye keeps the heat coming with this Fall’s adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Mauve” hitting shelves soon. Somehow, some way, Kanye West seems to be untouchable when it comes to bad press. Despite his antics concerning politics, the man is still moving product. His shoes don’t suffer at all from his, shall we say, expressive demeanor.
Part of that success has quite a bit to do with the shoes themselves. The Yeezy Boost 700 has been a hit since we first laid eyes on it. As we all know, it also came about just as the chunky sneaker trend was taking shape.
Here, we see more of that. The upper is an interesting mix of synthetic elements as well as overlays of suede. The base is still in a breathable mesh but features varying patterns throughout. And then we also get the most irresistible element of this shoe: its robust midsole. Packing a whole lot of Boost, this element of the design also feels like it visually swallows the Yeezy 700 up.
The color scheme does a pretty good job taking on Fall hues. The Brown shades on the upper are expressed in different tones and textures. While the soft finish on the suede overlays sits smoothly, the mesh base feels more aggressive.
The midsole is where we see the pop of color, giving us a striking usage of Green. These combinations prompted the suggestion of Kiwi and Avocado as this colorway’s unofficial nickname.
Another interesting note to keep in mind about the Yeezy Boost 700 is its production. The shoe has been Kanye’s way of fulfilling his promise to make more shoes available to the general public on release day. This can’t be sitting well with resellers, but West seems to be following through on his promise.
Due out on October 27th, don’t miss your chance to grab these Fall-ready bangers!
