West shared an image of the yet-to-release sneaker on Twitter, along with the caption "chrstn trssr dsgnd 700s stvn smth bttm." The message indicates that legendary footwear designer Christian Tresser and current Yeezy design director Steven Smith, who both worked for Reebok in the early 90s, linked up to revamp the Yeezy 700—Tresser redesigning the upper, while Smith's contribution is seen on the tooling. While the silhouette maintains the chunky dad shoe look, the grey upper reads 700 in large font along the lateral side. As of now, there is still no official word on a release for the latest 700 variation.
Earlier this year, West also gifted a pair of the unreleased Yeezy Boost 700 VX sneakers to the 22-year-old rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine in a vibrant volt colorway. He's also recently been spotted rocking the Tresser-designed Reebok Daytona DMX while watching his friend Don C's son hoop in Los Angeles.
Tresser, a highly accomplished designer with roughly 26 years of experience working for major brands, is mostly known for delivering classic designs such as the Nike Air Max 97, Air Zoom Spiridon, Mercurial R9 soccer cleat and his very first design, 1992's Reebok Aztrek. He regularly shares original sketches of his work on Instagram.
