As expected, Kanye’s fifth shoe design with Adidas, The Yeezy Wave Runner 700 sold out (until November 1st). Find out more from Footwear News and shop the best alternatives below:

From FN:
Kanye West’s fifth sneaker model with Adidas, the Yeezy Wave Runner 700, is a retro-inspired runner that flows with the current bulky shoe trend. Preorders of the sneakers sold out and won’t ship out until Nov. 1, but there are other ways to get similar looks right now.

Sneaker styles with wavy, oversized midsoles are actually more common than you might think, so there’s plenty to choose from, but that also means it’s tough to narrow down your search. The good news is that FN has done the work for you, compiling a shoppable list of the best shoes reminiscent of the Yeezy Wave Runner available now.
