At this point, Kanye West is years removed from his arrival into the fashion world. His Adidas Yeezys sneakers remain some of the desired on the market and he has also released multiple seasons of his Yeezy clothing line. However, many Kanye and streetwear stans alike still wish that his now-mythological Pastelle line, which never came to fruition, actually made its way to retailers back in the mid-2000s.
One lucky individual will have the chance to own a distinct piece of the Kanye West timeline as a one-of-one sample pair of Pastelle sneakers has been posted for sale for the low price of just $5,000. The pair is being sold by model Gio Mitchell and was slated to release with Pastelle's Fall 2010 collection. A sample tag attached to the size 9 sneaker indicates it was produced on June 25, 2009.
The silhouette is very similar to the Nike Vandal Low. It sports a light grey suede upper with white piping throughout. A white Velcro strap extends over the midfoot. "The Past Tells Everything" can be seen stamped on the outsole. Despite being a deadstock pair, there are some discolored sections due to age.
Being a sample, there are also some noticable differences on each foot. The aformentioned outsole branding can only be seen on one foot. Each shoe also sits atop different midsole styles. The left shoe features a leather liner, while the right shoe opts for a mesh inner lining.
