The Yeezy Foam Runner is a footwear model designed by musical artist and creative Kanye West. First debuted on the soles of his daughter North West in 2019, the clog-like silhouette immediately sent the sneaker world into a frenzy for its strong similarities to the Croc.
In terms of its design, the Yeezy Foam Runner is without any laces or moving parts, and sports an alien-esque/porous construction whose chunky rear evokes memories of the adidas Yeezy 700. Material-wise, they are partly consisted of algae — a decision stemmed from Kanye West’s commitment to producing more sustainable product — as well as EVA Foam.
They made their official public debut on June 26th, 2020 through a surprise drop exclusively on Yeezy Supply. Retailed at $75 USD, the colorway they’ve dubbed the “Ararat” — a nod to the Mount Ararat volcano located in Turkey — sold out instantly, and now sits at three times its initial price on the resell market.
Given that more colorways have been previewed through Kanye’s last Season 8 fashion show, as well as through celebrity seeding, it’s more than likely that we will see more official releases launch in the coming months. Scroll here below to find out more information regarding its upcoming releases.
