Yeezys have been launching fast and furious throughout March. With a release set for each week, besides the grounded Geodes, Yeezy 350s have been filling up the calendar. First up were the Asian region Hyperspaces available on Adidas Japan and Yeezy Supply Asia. Both sites were easy to get to, but the language barrier was […]

Seemingly the darker colored Yeezys just don’t resonate with the (younger) sneaker community. As a “seasoned” shoe head, I personally didn’t mind the 700 v1 Mauves, and I kinda like the 700 v2 Geodes. But even at release, they just didn’t move like other Yeezy drops. Even now, hours later, common sizes are readily available […]
Real or photoshopped? Kanye West pulling through a McDonald’s drive through in a Tesla Model 3 (see the roof and telltale door handles).
Using the last few Yeezy restocks as a baseline, I figured the Zebra stripped Yeezy Boost 350 would be easy to get. Not so. I had no luck on the Adidas site even using multiple Chrome users. I didn’t even get past the waiting room for a chance to buy a pair. Now that […]
First off, thanks goes to Adidas and Kanye West for releasing the ever-popular Yeezy line of shoes in mass quantities to the public. Usually a Yeezy drop is plain bananas, but the release of the Triple White colorway seems more equitable due to the mass quantities. But one downside of the wide availablility is the […]
Waiting to buy Yeezys from the Adidas web site on launch day be like… Over and over and over…
Why do I have the feeling that these raffle tickets for the upcoming Yeezy Boost 350 “Blue Tint” are a waste of paper? Do I trust that Foot Locker and Foot Action will hold legitimate raffles for these shoes or will “associates” of employees coincidentally be rocking them Blue Tints? Update: Yup, waste of time. […]
The second lucky pickup of the week was thanks to the Foot Locker mobile app. For the launch of the Yeezy Boost 350 Beluga v2.0, Foot Locker was promoting their Launch Locator and reservation system in the mobile app. Being a super duper old school member of the Foot Locker VIP club, I signed up […]
Well, not really, but when I first saw Adidas’ new Alphabounce running shoes, I saw semblences of Kanye West’s Yeezy kicks. And maybe for the uninitiated, they may mistake the Alphabounce for something Yeezy-ish. There’s no Boost instead featuring Bounce, an EVA foam. Not PrimeKnit but ForgedMesh. Though the basic silhouette and print pays homage […]
I know you have a Kanye West fetish. You want to be Yeezus with his fame, notoriety, and Kardashian connections. While you lip sync Kanye’s raps in the secret, you might as well dress the part, performing in Kanye’s Adidas fashion line. For $235, this camo tee will make you that much closer to Yeezy […]
How do middle school kids learn if Kanye West can actually run for President of the United States in 2020? You use Kanye’s Yeezy line of kicks as props to draw students into the lessons of primary elections, caucuses, and the Electoral College. Well played, Ray.
Kanye West’s collaboration with Adidas comes to life on Valentine’s Day as the Yeezy Boost debuts today in New York. Later in the month, you can stand in the virtual queue provided by the Confirmed app for your chance to snatch up one of the 9000 pairs of Adidas Yeezys available at launch. Are you […]
