Kanye West surprised sneakerheads everywhere Saturday by releasing his new Adidas Yeezy Wave Runner 700 sneakers out of nowhere. The shoes were available for preorder from the rapper-designer’s Yeezy Supply e-commerce site briefly but eventually sold out.
The Yeezy Wave Runner 700 cost $300, but its sold-out status has caused secondary-market prices to catapult to around double their original worth. On the high end, the ’90s-esque kicks have sold for more than $1,000 on eBay.
Unfortunately, the preorder sneakers won’t ship until November, leaving many consumers anxiously awaiting more details on the new Yeezy design.
Ahead of the delivery date, Yeezy Mafia has shared a look at the technology that makes up the tooling of the Wave Runner 700 — specifically a closer view of the sneaker’s Boost cushioning, which was touted in its product description on Yeezy Supply.
The images show a piece-by-piece breakdown of the Wave Runner 700’s midsole and outsole, which include a rubber outsole with a herringbone traction pattern, a foam midsole and the inner Boost cushioning, which rests directly underneath the foot.
