Yeezy Season 6 is here.
Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 6—the follow-up to his Calabasas-heavy Yeezy Season 5 collection that’s in stores now—never debuted at New York Fashion Week, or any fashion week for that matter. There were no paparazzi cameras, celebrity-stacked front rows, or reviews of the show to read about. But recently West’s wife Kim Kardashian West was spotted out in about in what she later revealed to be pieces from Yeezy Season 6.
On one day she even wore nine (!!!) different Yeezy Season 6 looks which she says were styled by CR Fashion Book founder Carine Roitfeld, in turn flipping the idea of a “runway” on its head. After all, if paparazzi take your picture everywhere you go anyway, do you really need to hire a show space and models? Today, pieces from Yeezy Season 6 are expected to drop on West’s site Yeezy Supply alongside a brand new sneaker any minute.
All year long Yeezys have flooded the sneaker market, from the low-top Yeezy Boost 350 V2 to the Yeezy Boost 700 and beyond. But the new style, dubbed the Yeezy 500 “Mud Rat,” is a shoe that until now has only been spotted on Kim and Kanye. It has a 90s-inspired mesh and suede upper and a sole lifted from the Adidas KB8 3 sneaker, which debuted in 1999 while Kobe was still on team Adidas. The version dropping today is also rumored to be a pale yellow colorway. We’ll update you once the collection and sneaker drop later today on Yeezy Supply.
