How a Sneakerhead Turned Yeezy Boosts Into Ice Skates

Although it’s equipped with modern Adidas technologies such as Boost and Primeknit, the Adidas Yeezy Boost line is by and large a lifestyle franchise — save for a handful of revamped football cleats. Still, that didn’t stop one sneakerhead from turning a pair of “Black/Red” Yeezy Boost 350 V2s into fully functional ice skates and using them to play hockey.

Branden Wiebe, who goes by @namebranclothing on Instagram, is the mind behind these unusual custom sneakers. It’s not Wiebe’s first sneaker-related stunt, either, as he’s previously caught viewers’ attention by turning Yeezys into roller skates, setting sneakers on fire, and literally baking bread in a pair of “Bred” Air Jordans.

To watch the full creation of the Yeezy Boost ice skates, visit Wiebe’s YouTube channel.

If you’re interested in re-creating Wiebe’s custom ice skates, you’ll have to wait awhile, as the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 was last released on Dec. 17 and sold out within minutes, as usual.

The next Yeezy Boost 350 V2 releases are rumored to include “White/Black/Red” and “Black/Red” colorways in early 2017; however, nothing has been confirmed by Adidas.
