The Calabasas Powerphase may be released before Spring 2017 is up.
Remember when Kanye West teased the Calabasas Powerphase sneakers a few months ago at a performance in New York? Well, according to Yeezy Mafia, these babies may be dropping real soon, within the Spring 2017 season, in fact. The source also claims, via an Instagram post (above), that the sneakers will be priced at US$120.
Interestingly, the Powerphase OG silhouette retails for less than half the price of the Calabasas version, and can easily be picked up from retailers like Asos or End. However, having been given the Kanye touch, the Calabasas Powerphase may just create a whole new surge in demand for the sneaker, hence the doubling of its retail price.
Going by the popularity of the Yeezy, it would appear that all Kanye touches is gold. Though sometimes it’s hard to understand how the controversial rapper manages to pull it off, there is now a course offered at Washington University titled “Politics of Kanye West: Black Genius and Sonic Aesthetics.” that could probably help to demystify the magic of the Kanye touch.
In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates on the release of the Calabasas Powerphase.
