Still too early to tell if they’ll be football’s latest trend.
DECEMBER 9TH, 2015
If you’re an admirer of the obsolete Predator or the vintage but still in-style (somewhat!) Copa Mundials, prepare yourself for what might be the latest trend in football footwear: The “Yeezy Ace.”
That’s right. Kanye West, along with footwear company Red Ribbon Recon and lifestyle blog “Kicks to the Pitch,” has teamed up with Adidas to transform a pair of his Yeezy Boost 350s trainers into a set of custom football boots as part of Copa Basel, a fan event held at Art Basel Miami.
The 38-year-old music icon has made a living writing lyrics for the better part of his career, and dipping his toes into the water of football fashion will surely be a test of whether he can measure up to the likes of other Adidas and Nike products.
For now, we’ll be looking out for leaked images of professionals actually experimenting with these things.
