The adidas Yeezy 700 is like the marmite of the sneaker world – you either love them to bits, or you hate them with a deep, burning passion. Featuring a hugely different look compared to Kanye West’s other creps, there’s no doubt that the 700 is full of unique character, and now, images have surfaced on Instagram of what could’ve been.

Images courtesy of @kicksclusive, this Yeezy 700 is listed as an “early sample“. A ‘Friends & Family’ exclusive, we actually got a very brief glimpse of this particular model back in September when it was flexed on Vogue Australia.

Featuring a sleeker look, a TPU looking piece adorns the toebox, which was replaced by a mesh panel in the final product. Around the collar, luxe leather is utilised for added support, which was later also replaced with mesh. The two egg-shaped holes in the final product have also been covered, resulting in a much smoother lateral side.
