It’s virtually no secret that Kanye West’s highly coveted Adidas tennis shoes – the Yeezy Boost 350s – have been among the hottest commodities about the kicks market since they hit stores in 2015. They sell out in a few minutes anytime a new colorway drops, then resell for approximately 10-times the original price on eBay.
These shoes have garnered a cult-like following on social media – there’s the Facebook group, yeezy boost 350, with 140,000 members and an Instagram account called Yeezy Mafia committed to leaking details about upcoming releases with 280,000 followers.
I might know. I’m among the proud few who got my hands – er, feet – with a pair for the list price of $220 last December, when the effortlessly cool black-and-white “Oreo” Yeezys proceeded sale. I’ll admit, that price for tennis shoes isn’t exactly easy on the wallet. However the exclusive status that accompany them – think countless head-turns and compliments – causes it to be worthwhile.
Not forgetting, the level of detail of each shoe is immaculate. Every pair is finely crafted having a knitted exterior, with all the various colors weaving inside and out to provide Yeezys an unmistakable design.
Their comfortability is breathtaking. The ultra-soft interior padding and trademark cushioned innersoles help it become feel like I’m walking over a cloud. When someone crafted a mattress crafted from that material, I’d buy it in the heartbeat – and imagine purchasing more Yeezys.
They’re stylish, too. Some colors are admittedly just a little out there – the black-and-white striped “Zebras” as well as the bright-orange-and-gray “Belugas” pop into your head – but several of the simple colors pair perfectly with dark, tapered jeans or form-fitting Adidas sweatpants running neatly down your leg and directly into the shoe’s foot opening.
I simply have one issue: I’m afraid to put on them outside. They’re pretty valuable, after all, and I’m terrified of scuffing them. But it’s a private problem, and I’m dealing with it.
There are 2 styles for your 350 sneakers thus far: The very first Boost 350s and also the Boost 350s V2. Have various colorways, but the main difference is definitely the V2s have “SPLY 350” written dexrpky01 the side for each shoe. Nobody knows what it means, but at the very least it makes the fact that you’re wearing Yeezys unmistakable.
The resale price depends upon which color and version you’re searching for (the first edition shoes cost more than $one thousand, since they’re no longer being made), however, you probably won’t get a real couple of either version for under $600 in the resale market. Be warned, there are several fakes offered on the market.
Typically, Adidas and West release a whole new colorway every two or three months. The latest ones – the triple-white Yeezy Boost 350 V2s – are positioned to drop this Saturday morning.
That means countless people worldwide will probably be relaxing in online waiting rooms on the Adidas, Champs and Foot Locker websites, desperately praying so it will be through to the check-out window.
