Kanye West's Yeezy releases always garner a lot of attention, and despite being a pretty obvious departure in appearance from his other Adidas silhouettes, the retro-inspired Calabasas Powerphase is no different. Now, the most easily wearable (and affordable) entry to the line is getting an even more affordable takedown model from Adidas in 2018.

Dubbed the Rascal, this silhouette is almost identical to the Calabasas Powerphase. Aside from the lack of Yeezy branding, the only major difference is the lack of Three Stipes perforations on the lateral side of the shoe. In its place is a two-toned sweeping stripe across the mid panel. Thanks to leaker Yeezy Mafia, we have a look at the first two colorways of the model. Aside from a white colorway, Adidas added some extra Yeezy DNA by creating a "Semi Frozen Yellow" pair as well, which appears to be inspired by the recently released Yeezy Boost 350 V2. To avoid any potential confusion, this pair is not a part of Kanye West's line of Adidas footwear.

The Adidas Rascal is expected to debut in June 2018 for $90.
