DescriptionYEEZY Mafia has revealed the new colorway, which is in itself eerily similar to the debut “Azael” colorway, save the various blue accents. Like the OG, this pair arrives with black booties and tongues, as well as like-white midsoles. Blue hues arrive on the icy-translucent rubber cage upper, streaking through the woven Primeknit upper —complimented with pastels and grey — and a solid panel at the midfoot. Toe overlays and outsoles arrive in eggshell to complete the design.
Behind the name, “Arzareth” is once again Biblical (2 Esdras 13:45), referring to a land to which ten tribes were deported, lying a year and a half’s journey beyond the Euphrates River. This is possibly where the blue/water influence comes from. On a side note, blue is beginning to appear across a handful of YEEZY releases later this year, a welcome change to the traditionally Earthy palettes.
