Hands off my Yeezys

Yeezy Boost 350 Grey

Hey everyone it’s time for another installment of Mr Urban Culture himself, that’s right Mr Kanye West.

During 2015 so far we have seen 3 shoe releases from the Adidas collaboration, one 750 boost and two 350 boost.  So far and probably in our opinion, the 350 boost are the better looking shoe as more styles and outfits can be done around the shoe. For us the 750 made us feel some type of way for 5 minutes but as several people have said including Kanye himself, the 750 boost looks like a better Ugg boot. So that leaves us with the 350 boost.

The ‘sock’ shoe when first arrived on the scene caused a stir on twitter with people saying that it looked like a Nike Roshe and that Kanye had no creativity, but this shoe on the other hand could be argued to have a better aesthetic silhouette with its fitted look. So far the shoe has been released in grey (turtle dove) and most recently in an all black (pirate black) colourway. From its original sale price these sneaks are reselling for over £1000 in some cases. Kanye has also recently revealed at an awards show that there will also be 350 boost all white and beige version too. Not to mention there will be a 750 boost all black version too, but we think these will be coming out during spring 2016.

If you got your hands on a pair of Yeezys then give yourself a pat on the back, however if you didn’t, be very careful where you look to buy from as a mass of fakes are entering the market and they are becoming increasingly difficult to tell which are the counterfeits.

Here’s something to leave you with. With Kanye having collaborated with Adidas have your views, tastes or opinions changed toward towards the footwear manufacturer? Let us know! Keep in mind that once upon a time Kanye had dope collabs with Nike including the Red Octobers.
