These Custom KAWS X YEEZY Boost 700s Will Cause Insane Envy

Sneaker customiser Alexander John has reimagined the YEEZY Boost 700, and they’re inspired by KAWS.

Sneaker Customiser Alexander John has given us a look at his new custom sneakers that blend KAWS’ signature Xs and bright colours with the YEEZY Boost 700.

The one-off pair holds onto the classic grey and black panelling but introduces secondary colours including neon yellow, pink and blue. The Sneakers don’t leave anything untouched and include bright pink lining and yellow laces.

Alexander John has gathered a massive following on Instagram with his creative customisation of footwear, and calls himself an artist, blogger, customiser, creative, fashion designer and influencer. Some of his recent sneaker upgrading works include a Black Panther x Puma Tsugi x Alexander-John, and a Villa x Nike x Alexander john.

Most of his works are hand painted like his camo detailing on Adidas’ Ultraboost, and while some pairs just source custom vinyl to apply to the shoes, others are completely customised from scratch with altered colours, patterned fabric, laces, soles and logos. The extent to which sneakers are customised depends on the pair, but the time dedicated to this is innumerable. But don’t get too excited about these KAWS x YEEZY Boost 700s because they will probably never be released.

Late last year, KAWS reimagined the Jordan 4s which were insanely popular and hard to get a hold of, because they were released through a lottery. KAWS collaborated again with Jordan to create a Jordan 4 grey iteration before this too, which was also lottery based.
