Fear not, all who failed to get their hands on a pair of the original Kanye West Yeezy Boost sneakers from adidas—the adidas Yeezy 350 Boosts are on the way.

Brendan Dunne of SoleCollector.com noted Wednesday that the rap mogul will release these new shoes through adidas on June 27. The sneakers will reportedly cost consumers $200 and “be more widely available than the first Kanye West x adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers.”

SoleCollector.com passed along a picture of the new shoes:

This second release through adidas is notable for the Chicago native because he originally released the Yeezy I and Yeezy II with Nike before leaving the company at least partially because of disagreements over royalty payments, per an interview with New York's Hot 97 FM (via Nate Scott of USA Today).

Peter Verry of FootwearNews.com noted that adidas only produced 9,000 pairs of the first adidas Yeezy Boosts, and they quickly sold out in stores and on the company's website at a price tag of $350.

West discussed that reality during a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest (via Riley Jones of Complex.com):

All the kids and all the parents that can't get the shoes currently because there's only 9,000, and 'cause they're $350 and if they're out of anyone's price range. I just wanna make sure that we keep it safe. I've heard about people getting hurt for sneaker culture in the past. I just want everyone to be safe and be patient.

You can run up on this kid and take his Yeezys but just be patient because we'll make more Yeezys. Eventually everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys. adidas has promised me that because there's so many kids that have wanted them that couldn't get them and I talked to the heads at adidas and they said we can make them.

It appears that the rap superstar is on the way to being true to his word with this new impending release.

For comparison, the new Yeezy 350 Boosts are a more low-cut version of the original adidas shoes. The shoes are woven with gray as the dominant color and white as the outsole portion.
