Kanye West appears to be keeping the Red October theme alive, as images of an all-red YEEZY Foam Runner have emerged. Courtesy of insiders YEEZY MAFIA, we get a rumored look at the second coming of the Red Octobers, which is being referred to as the “Vermilion.”
Vermilion is a word that describes a deep shade of red, making it fitting for the new YEEZY Foam Runner colorway. While showcased in a bolder scheme, the shoe features the same design elements as other Foam Runner makeups, including EVA based foam construction and oval shaped perforations.
The “Vermilion” will certainly be a deviation from the more muted Foam Runner colorways, as we’ve previously seen the futuristic clog in black, white, sand, grey, and mineral blue. And with summer right around the corner, YEEZY fans are eagerly awaiting new colorways of the slip-on, which first launched in June of last year.
A followup to Kanye’s original Red October drop of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 in 2014, the “Vermilion” YEEZY Foam Runner is rumored to arrive this October for $80. You’ll want to keep it locked here, however, as we await confirmation from adidas.
