The Yeezy Powerphase is arguably one of Kanye West’s most underrated adidas sneakers. First unveiled back in the summer of 2017, the shoe released as part of Ye’s ‘Calabasas‘ collection, and was met with pretty mixed reactions.
Many sneakerheads loved the clean, retro design but were also taken aback by how different this release was when compared to his other shoes. Whether or not you’re a fan of the vintage aesthetic is totally up to you, but if you are, then you’ll be happy to find out that the Powerphase is making a comeback later this month!
Announced by Kim K herself via her Instagram Story, the Powerphase will be doing away with the classic leather materials, opting instead for a buttery smooth suede construction that’s soft to the touch. This makeover was first teased during Kanye’s rare Forbes interview back in July, but we all thought it was a sample that was never going to see the light of day. Mrs Kardashian-West also unveiled that the shoe will be dropping in two colourways in a “light grey colour and in a beige colour”.
As for a release date, rumours are stating that the Yeezy Powerphase ‘Clear Brown’ will be dropping on September 18th. Hands down one of the most unexpected Yeezy launches of the year, we’re welcoming it with open arms. Will you be adding any of these to your collection?
