Adidas Yeezy 450 offers a whole new world

When Kanye West joins forces with Godfather of dad shoes, nonconformist Steven Smith, a brand new world takes form. At least for the feet of those who embrace out-of-the-box sneakers.

After three years since Kanye and Steve teased the sneaker community with a venus flytrap-looking sole, the Adidas Yeezy 450 sets foot on the streets with its runway-fitting flair. Like most neck-breaking sneaks from Kanye and Steve, this too received all the hype and attention. Now, if you think this is the craziest from the Three Stripes, you haven't seen the Yeezy Foam Runner yet.

Why the Yeezy 450 is crazy in a good way?

  • Though the Adidas Yeezy 450 isn’t as springy as the Yeezy Boost 350, the claw-like bottom grabs the foot comfortably, and its foam component softens the impact. 
  • Similar to the Yeezy 700 v3, it has a removable Ortholite insole that’s reinforced in high-impact areas so your feet won't get hurt even when used for hours.
  • It breathes so you'll find it useful during summer.

Getting it tidy

A caveat before you get obsessed with this expensive sneaker, you need to get used to cleaning it up more often than probably any other sneaker in your closet. Since this shoe gets soiled easily, you’d need a protector spray, shoe brush, and a mild detergent or specialized shoe cleaner to keep it tidy. Here’s one quick way to keep Your Yeezy 450 as brand new as possible.
