Kanye West and adidas‘ popular-yet-scarce YEEZY QNTM has appeared in a new “Flaora” colorway. Following up the “Frozen Blue” and “Teal Blue” styles that released towards the tail end of 2020, the “Flaora” boasts a look centered around a rusty bronze tone.

This bronze shade appears on the upper’s wavy overlays, where it’s more prominent towards the throat and interspersed with a healthy dose of black towards the midsole. These overlays sit atop a semi-translucent mesh base, and are surrounded by a YEEZY BOOST 700 V2-style gray suede toebox and a black collar. The entire assemblage is bolstered by a smoky black heel clip, which itself descends into the midsole and meets a semi-translucent gray forefoot. Ensconced in this midsole is a full-foot BOOST cushioning setup. Black oval laces provide a finishing touch of detail, and, if the “Flaora” follows in the footsteps of the other YEEZY BSKTBL colorways, the outsole will feature a modified herringbone traction pattern.

At the time of writing the adidas YEEZY QNTM “Flaora” has been rumored for a May release, but adidas has yet to make any official announcement. The MSRP will likely be set at $250 USD — in line with past models.
