The Most Wanted Men's YEEZY Sneakers
YEEZY Boost 350
One of the brand’s best-selling styles, the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 currently comes in V1 and V2 versions. Designed with an elastic Primeknit upper, the low-cut silhouette sits on a BOOST midsole for optimum cushioning and comfort. There has been several colorways having released and restocked to date, including bold and neutral styles. Reflective versions are also available, but are created in more limited quantities than the non-reflective styles.
YEEZY Boost 700
First launched in 2017 in highly limited quantity and restocked in 2018, the Yeezy Boost 700 has been released in a range of colorways. Crafted with Primeknit uppers, this streamlined style comes with suede overlays and a bulky sole unit. The lace-up fastening can be easily adjusted for a tighter fit, while some colorways are enlivened with pops of contrasting color at the sole.
Paying homage to retro sports style, the YEEZY Powerphase (otherwise known as the YEEZY Calabasas) is reinvented in soft leather or suede and boasts a minimalist aesthetic. With a low-cut silhouette and lace-up fastening, the pared-back design is subtly enlivened with gold-foil ‘Calabasas’ branding at the side and a signature Adidas logo. It is set on an ultra-comfortable EVA midsole and split cupsole, and finished with perforated Three Stripe branding for a vintage look and feel. Previous YEEZY Powerphase colorways include Clear Brown, Quiet Grey, Black, Purple White, and Simple Brown.
The Men’s YEEZY Sizing Guide
Sizes on YEEZY sneakers are listed in US men’s sizes, and you can use the below size chart to find your corresponding UK, European or Japanese size.
For example, if you usually wear a men’s UK size 9, you should take your YEEZY sneakers in a US size 10.
How To Care For Your YEEZY Sneakers
We would recommend never washing your YEEZY sneakers in the washing machine or putting them in a tumble dryer. To remove dirt and stains, wipe with a damp, soft cloth or use a specialist suede or leather cleaner.
Avoid using bleach or leaving your sneakers near direct heat, as this can cause discoloration to the upper and sole. We would advise storing your sneakers in the branded YEEZY box.
- How much are YEEZY sneakers?
Yeezy sneakers range from £300 for Season 6 Crepe sneakers in graphite black or neutral colorways, while some styles of the YEEZY Boost 350 V2 are £545. Certain YEEZY sneakers also have a high price on the resale market, with the Yeezy Boost 750 in Triple Black having one of the highest resale values.
- Who sells YEEZY sneakers?
YEEZY sneakers are sold on the Adidas website, as well as from YEEZY Supply and other authorized retailers and specialist sneaker sites. As the brand’s latest drops tend to sell out quickly, we would recommend shopping online early on release morning. Some release details can change, so make sure you double-check and keep an eye out for any release updates.
- How do YEEZY fit?
Finding your right size in YEEZY sneakers is not always straightforward, and can vary between styles.
• YEEZY Boost 350: The YEEZY Boost 350 V2s tend to fit half a size small in comparison to your standard size or a full size up for those with wider feet. The YEEZY Boost 350 V1s are more or less true to size.
• YEEZY 500: Similar to the YEEZY Boost 350, the YEEZY 500 also comes up about half a size small. However, some also prefer to buy their standard size in this style.
• YEEZY 700: There are three iterations of the YEEZY 700, and all typically fit slightly differently. The OG YEEZY 700 has a narrow toe box and fits snug, while the the 700 in Mauve, Inertia and Analog colorways should be bought in a size up due to the added padding and elastic at the tongue. The YEEZY 700 V2 has a Primeknit construction and offers more room at the toe, and therefore fits true to size.
