After various speculations, the long wait for YEEZY Boost 350 V2 is almost over. The adidas Originals-Kanye West collaboration will finally hit selected retailers this Saturday, Sept 24.
The New YEEZY: Specs
YEEZY Boost 350 V2 is the successor of West's much-hyped low-top sneakers, the YEEZY Boost 350. The new YEEZY sneakers will come in a "STEGRY/BELUGA/SOLRED" colorway. Compared to its predecessor, the new Kanye West-designed sneakers feature some significant alterations including a more prominent heel, padded collar and translucent midsole.
YEEZY Boost 350 V2 also boasts a Primeknit upper with three yarn variations. The gray knitted upper is accented with a bright orange stripe and marked with "SPLY-350" text.
An animated video released by adidas Originals on YouTube showed the entire production of the highly anticipated sneakers. The clip revealed the details of the design and the premium materials used in the production.
YEEZY Boost 350 V2 Price & Preorders
YEEZY Boost 350 V2 will be a little more expensive than the previous edition. It is listed at $220. Preorders and reservations for the new sneakers are available at some selected adidas retailers worldwide.
The full list of retailers will be announced through the adidas Confirmed App. According to FN, customers at select adidas retail locations should sign up on Confirmed in order to reserve a pair starting Sept. 21 and pick it up on Sept. 24. Adidas has not yet announced the exact time for the opening of the reservations.
Per HypeBeast, the reservation process will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The adidas Confirmed App is available in several countries including the U.S., U.K., Germany and Italy. The app has been recently redesigned to attend to the needs of the adidas consumers.
More YEEZY Sneakers are Coming
West told Vogue that his main goal for his YEEZY line is to produce more beautiful yet affordable sneakers for a wide range of people. He also revealed that he is already negotiating with adidas to set up a standalone Yeezy store.
Aside from the YEEZY Boost 350 V2 in gray and orange colorway, several other pairs of YEEZY leaked on the internet in the past weeks. These include a black colorway of YEEZY Boost 350 V2 with a TPU cage enclosing the concealed Boost midsole.
