It’s virtually no secret that Kanye West’s highly coveted Adidas tennis shoes – the Yeezy Boost 350s – have already been one of the hottest commodities on the kicks market since that time they hit stores in 2015. They offer out within a few minutes anytime a brand new colorway drops, then resell for up to 10-times the first price on eBay.
The shoes have garnered a cult-like following on social media – there’s the Facebook group, yeezy, with 140,000 members and an Instagram account called Yeezy Mafia committed to leaking information about upcoming releases with 280,000 followers.
I would know. I’m one of the proud few who got my hands – er, feet – with a pair for that retail price of $220 last December, if the effortlessly cool black-and-white “Oreo” Yeezys proceeded sale. I’ll admit, that price for tennis shoes isn’t exactly easy around the wallet. Nevertheless the exclusive status that accompany them – think countless head-turns and compliments – can make it worthwhile.
Not to mention, the level of detail of every shoe is immaculate. Every pair is finely crafted having a knitted exterior, using the various colors weaving inside and outside to offer Yeezys an unmistakable design.
Their comfortability is breathtaking. The ultra-soft interior padding and trademark cushioned innersoles allow it to be feel like I’m walking over a cloud. If somebody produced a mattress crafted from that material, I’d purchase it in the heartbeat – and desire purchasing more Yeezys.
They’re stylish, too. Some colors are admittedly just a little around – the black-and-white striped “Zebras” along with the bright-orange-and-gray “Belugas” pop into your head – but some 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, in the end, and I’m terrified of scuffing them. But it’s a private problem, and I’m dealing with it.
The two main styles for your 350 sneakers up to now: The original Boost 350s as well as the Boost 350s V2. Both have various colorways, but the real difference will be the V2s have “SPLY 350” written dexrpky01 the side of each shoe. Nobody knows what it really stands for, but at the very least this makes the reality that you’re wearing Yeezys unmistakable.
The resale price depends upon which color and version you’re trying to find (the initial edition shoes cost in excess of $1,000, since they’re no more being made), but you probably won’t find a real kind of either version for under $600 about the resale market. Be warned, there are many fakes for sale out there.
Typically, Adidas and West release a new colorway every two or three months. The latest ones – the triple-white Yeezy Boost 350 V2s – are set to decrease this Saturday morning.
That means many people worldwide will likely be being placed in online waiting rooms around the Adidas, Champs and Foot Locker websites, desperately praying so it will be right through to the check-out window.
