On Sunday night's "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," the second episode of its twelfth season, Kim Kardashian confirmed that lil' itty bitty bb Yeezys are definitely on the way. Speculation began earlier this spring when her son Saint West wore his own pair of Yeezy Boost 350s for the Easter holiday in March (as snapped by Mama Kim).
"You guys, baby Yeezys are gonna be launched in August. The black ones and the original blue-and-cream mix," Kim says while dining with her sisters (sans Kendall) and Kris Jenner. She also mentions the idea of possibly releasing a pink pair, too, and the announcement seemed like the natural segue away from her family's conversation about Scott's partying habits.
The news of the upcoming Yeezy release was revealed at the very beginning of the "KUWTK" episode, which mainly documents the lead-up and premiere of Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo" listening party/Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at Madison Square Garden in February. There's also a quick cameo by Anna Wintour herself, who attended (and got lost at) West's show. Kim proudly tells Wintour how many models were cast (1,500) and that she styled three of the collection's looks in the show herself. From what we can tell behind Wintour's signature oversized sunnies, she was impressed.
Although multiple news outlets are still unsure of the exact release date for the pint-sized Yeezy Boost 350s, a previous report from Sneaker News (via Daily Mail) thinks Aug. 15 is when Yeezys for infants will actually drop for a retail price of $120. So if you happen to get invited to a baby shower towards the end of the summer, perhaps you can skip the registry's list of burp cloths and swaddle blankets for these instead?
