The Yeezy Slide "Azure" is Finally Dropping After Over a Year of Delays
Earlier this month, The Edit LDN reported that the Kanye West x adidas partnership was officially back. With hundreds of colourways expected to release between now and the end of the year, one that we're most excited about is the Yeezy Slide "Azure." This pair has been on our radar now for well over a year, so to say that we're beyond hyped would be a pretty big understatement.
Just like the "Bone," "Onyx," and "Pure," the "Azure" boasts a one-piece EVA foam construction that's as comfortable as it gets. With that said, unlike the neutral colourways that we have become accustomed to, this Slide is dipped in a very vibrant blue hue that's sure to turn heads wherever you go. A single adidas logo is debossed onto the footbed, while the outsole features exaggerated tooling for additional grip and traction with every step.
At the end of last year, the Herzogenaurach-based sportswear company prematurely terminated its partnership with Ye due to anti-semitic comments that he made. With that said, in hopes to minimise the brand's profit loss as well as to avoid a potential issue with sustainability, adi has decided to release the rest of its remaining Yeezy stock, with 15% commission of every sale still going to West, as per their original contract.
The adidas Yeezy Slide "Azure" is set to finally release on May 31st. Let us know if you'll be adding these to your rotation later this month, and in related news, the Yeezy Boost 350 "Pirate Black" is restocking!
