When the Yeezy 450 "Nuriel" first leaked all the way back in May, we were confused but intrigued at the same time. A silhouette that was first teased back in August 2018, rumour has it that it'll finally be dropping early next year, and here's everything that we know so far!
A shoe that gets its name from an angel in the Bible, the "Nuriel" is the brainchild of legendary footwear designer Steven Smith who we interviewed quite recently. Painted in a clean cream hue, mesh takes over the entire upper while a stretchy collar gives it a sock-like fit that's as comfortable as it gets.
Moving downwards, you'll find a midsole that's unlike anything that we've seen before. Unveiled by Kanye West himself over two years ago, it features a crazy sharktooth design that extends all the way up. This is then rounded off with a zig-zag rubber outsole that's as unique as it gets, finalising the one-of-a-kind design.
According to sneaker insider @py_rates, the adidas Yeezy 450 "Nuriel" will be launching sometime in February 2021. Other rumours state that it'll release alongside "White", "Volt Green", and "Fuchsia" colourways, though these have yet to be confirmed. Let us know what you think of Ye's latest and greatest silhouette, and while you're here, you might as well take a closer look at the Yeezy Boost 380 "Onyx"!
