Kanye West’s Adidas Yeezy ‘Sulfur’ Foam Runner Sandal Releases This Week
Kanye West has kept a low profile after canceling his Coachella performance, but his label Yeezy is producing the releases as usual. Last month, the brand dropped 14 releases and restocks alone, and the next shoe to hit the market is a “Sulfur” iteration of the Foam Runner.
Even the planet loves this one — Although the sandal is usually met with admiration or hesitation, it’s hard to downplay its comfort factors. Harvested seaweed and EVA contribute to its lightweight construction, while the caged makeup adds support and stability. For the environmentally conscious buyer, algae-based foam also makes it a pretty worthy contender on the sustainability front.
“Sulfur” is one of the most popular color schemes in the Yeezy palette, as the brand has planted sand beige on a Knit Runner slipper and boot, as well as the 450 sneaker. It follows the more monochromatic designs of the shoe line, which also adopts marbled patterns on its sandals from time to time.
A walk on the wild side – If your first instinct upon seeing the debut of the Foam Runner was to criticize or turn your nose up at the silhouette, that’s understandable. It looks pretty ridiculous. But we’re a few releases deep at this point, and its popularity has grown to the point of reselling it for 10 times the original retail price. Even Kanye’s harassing antics and Instagram ban wasn’t enough to hamper Yeezy’s partnership with Adidas. However, if you love the slipper but don’t want to be the object of public stare, we can attest to its durability and comfort should you decide to make it your official house shoe.
For those looking to add the paleo-neutral slipper to their rotation, it will see a full family-sized release at 11 a.m. this Friday, April 22, through the Adidas App Confirmed, Yeezy Supply, and select retailers. It will cost you $45 to $90 if you can buy it at retail price; otherwise, StockX already lists pairs up to $359.
