Earlier this week, Kanye West announced that he fired a YEEZY employee for trying to take credit for work that was not their own. Now, the rapper turned prolific designer has teased a first look at a new sneaker he’s calling the YEEZY 700 V2 on Twitter.

The latest iteration of the YEEZY Boost 700 looks like a mash-up of the Boost 500 (or “Desert Rat,” as they’re often referred to) and Boost 700 (“Wave Runner”). It features what appears to be suede and mesh details in a beige colorway resembling the “Blush” version of the Boost 500 with white lacing and signature branding throughout.
