Teasers of the crisp, coke-white, whiter-than-a-wedding-dress, whiteout, all-white colorway of the YEEZY Boost 350 have been floating around the internet for a while now. Yesterday, however, the shoe was given an official unveiling at Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 4 fashion show in NYC.
Rumor has it the official colorway name is “Beluga” — presumably this is Kanye’s way of shouting out to the whale of the same name, although it’s official name is the Delphinapterus leucas, if we’re speaking in zoological terms. The all-white whale is an inhabitant of the freezing Arctic oceans, and has been known to gather in the thousands on seasonal occasions — sort of like Supreme fans, then.
Anyway, this latest all-white YEEZY Boost 350 colorway sports the usual features — a highly cushioned BOOST sole unit and knitted upper — although it does look like the pull tab has been removed from the heel. No doubt it’ll cause mayhem when it’s officially released.
Stay tuned for further information on the shoe’s release.
