Kanye West’s new Yeezy Boost 350 V2 trainers reportedly drop “this month” – but there’s a catch

A “special release” is rumoured to hit shelves soon

Fans of Kanye West’s Yeezy Boost 350 V2 trainers may be able to get their hands on a special new collection this month.

The Sole Supplier claims that a “special release” of the Yeezys will arrive in March with the three new designs – ‘Clay’, ‘True Form’, and ‘Hyperspace’ – on sale as region exclusives.

‘Clay’ will apparently only be available to purchase in the US, ‘True Form’ in Europe, and ‘Hyperspace’ in Asia. The different coloured shoes (which The Sole Supplier reports are painted in earthy beige, tonal grey, and minty white hues, respectively) look to feature a transparent stripe with shoots down the lateral side panels.

In January, details of West’s reported new Yeezy Boost leaked, which claimed that a new 350 V2 Static ‘Beluga’ design was set to hit the market.

At the time of writing no further details about a release date nor an official confirmation of the new shoes have been made. NME has contacted Adidas for comment.

Meanwhile, West has said that he’s “been fighting” for the position of creative director at Adidas, whom he’s been working with since 2013, most notably on his Yeezy shoes.

West is preparing to release his long-awaited new album ‘Yandhi’.

The record was originally due for release last September before being pushed back to November. However, weeks before the second release date arrived, West tweeted that he was delaying it once more.

Report: Nationals unwilling to exceed luxury tax for Kimbrel

The Washington Nationals have interest in adding free-agent closer Craig Kimbrel – but only if the finances line up.

Washington’s ownership is thus far unwilling to sign Kimbrel to a contract as it would push the team’s payroll above the luxury-tax threshold for a third straight season, sources told Pete Kerzel of MASN.

The Nationals’ current payroll sits at $201,473,333, according to Roster Resource. That figure is about $4.5 million below this year’s $206-million tax threshold. Adding Kimbrel would send the Nationals well past that mark and potentially leave them with little wiggle room for trade deadline additions.

Washington paid a $2.4-million penalty for exceeding the luxury tax last year. If its 2019 payroll stays below the threshold, the Nationals’ tax figure would reset entirely heading into next offseason. Should they surpass the tax threshold for a third consecutive year, ownership would have to pay a 50-percent tax on every subsequent dollar spent, according to Kerzel.

Signing Kimbrel would also force the Nationals to surrender two compensatory draft picks because he rejected a qualifying offer from the Boston Red Sox. Washington already gave up two of its 2019 selections this winter after signing Patrick Corbin, who rejected a qualifying offer from Arizona.

Kimbrel, MLB’s active saves leader, would add yet another All-Star arm to the Nationals’ potent bullpen and improve their standing in the ultra-competitive NL East. The 30-year-old is said to be asking for a six-year contract in the $100-million range, which would be a record deal for a reliever.

The Atlanta Braves are also thought to have interest in signing Kimbrel, albeit on a shorter-term contract. He’s been linked to the Philadelphia Phillies as well, though the extent of their interest after signing Bryce Harper is unclear.
