The alliance of sportswear powerhouses Adidas and creative Kanye West has been significant due to being between an athletic brand and musician rather than an athlete. The collaboration has led to exceptional design styles with distinctive sculptural creations from the imagination of Kanye West. In addition, Yeezy is known for exciting footwear, apparel, and accessories that combine street and sportswear with art, redefining regular sport and street styles with quality and precision consumers would expect from Adidas' technical expertise.
While the Yeezy 450 may not be everyone's cup of tea, they are iconic and a distinctive Yeezy creation for those who love them. There was a wait with conception teased a few years before the 2021 release (way back in 2019 initially), so they sold out within minutes of launching with the surrounding hype. However, they were and continue to be controversial due to the unusual design, the most distinctive being the single-piece tooling up the shoe's collar, Algae foam sole instead of Adidas Boost technology, and due to the distinctive "dad shoe" design. Nevertheless, the design is still popular with collectors and Yeezy lovers alike, with the colour palette harking back to early era Yeezy and hitting on nostalgic notes.
