Get up close and personal with the latest pictures of Kanye's Yeezy Season 2 boots, due out in February 2016. According to Complex, the new boot features a crepe outsole but overall look pretty much the same as the boots in Yeezy Season 1 — a critique that also can be applied to many of the other new pieces. The boots will not be manufactured by Adidas (the same can be said of the rest of the collection) and will be produced in Italy.
There's no confirmation on what the boots will be selling for yet, but if it's anything like Yeezy Season 1, they won't come cheap. Not that that drove away many fans: the first Yeezy collection sold out pretty much everywhere it was stocked and most retailers confirmed that they'd be stocking the next collection as well, even though Adidas would no longer be involved in the production of the collection.
