Kanye West’s adidas YEEZY Foam Runner was first teased in September 2019, before A$AP Ferg unveiled a new all-red colorway in March. Now, in an I-D interview with Pharrell Williams, Kanye has confirmed that the Foam Runner will be released in June.
Speaking to Pharrell, ’Ye said: “[We’re] sitting here in Wyoming figuring out how to do manufacturing during COVID. The Foam Runners we’re coming out with in June are our first American manufactured items and we gotta figure out how to do localised manufacturing.”
When the adidas YEEZY Foam Runner was initially teased, it was dragged on Twitter for looking like something Crocs would make, though there were several users who were intrigued by the rubber slipper.
Most of Kanye’s sneaker designs go through the same life cycle of ridicule upon unveiling, before hype begins to build and, ultimately, those that miss out on release day are left feeling salty. If Kanye’s June release date remains accurate in spite of Covid-19, we’ll soon find out if the adidas YEEZY Foam Runner release will go down the same way.
As always, stay tuned for more information as we get it. In the meantime, read I-D’s full interview here.
