The futuristic Yeezy 700 V3 line is set for a brand-new update with the “Safflower” ready to drop in the coming months. Previously known as the “Srphym”, the shoe is one of many Yeezy designs renamed and given a new, more neutral moniker.
The new iteration comes dressed in a yellow Primeknit upper with white stripes along the textured fabric, which is set beneath the signature white rubber cage we’ve come to expect on the silhouette.
Elsewhere, the shoe uses jet black on the tongue and lace section, as well as a tanned, sandy-coloured hue on the midsole, which is made of an EVA foam cushioning rather than the Boost technology found on the Yeezy 700 V2 silhouette.
The “Safflower” is just one of many Yeezy designs that’s received a rename. So far it’s unclear what’s caused the Yeezy team into rebranding all their upcoming releases, but some suggest it could be due to complaints about the commercialisation of religion, so we may just have seen the last of the biblical references on the Yeezy releases.
The various Yeezy 700 silhouettes always cause quite a stir when they drop, with the sneaker community forever split on the look. Some are drawn to the style’s unorthodox design, while others absolutely deplore it. Regardless, the shoe always seems to fetch a good price on the resale market so expect more of the same this time around.
As ever, the shoe will go on sale on the official Yeezy channels, and it’ll be priced at around £150. With previous designs in this collection selling out in double quick time, you might have to be fast if you want to avoid buying on the secondary market.
