SneakersKanye's Re-Designed Yeezy Boost 350s Could Be Dropping Really Soon
Will the 350 V2 hit shelves in September?
It's been kind of a quiet year for Yeezys, all things considered. There's been a re-issue of the Black 350s and a new gray/gum 750 hi-top, but there's been no new Yeezy Boost silhouettes to hit the market. That's surprising considering a new 350—or what some called the 550—were shown all the way in February at Yeezy Season 3, alongside new boots. And though Kanye has since dropped Yeezy Season 2 boots (not made by Adidas), it seems like maybe, just maybe, a new version of the Yeezy 350 could be on its way very soon.
According to Sneaker News, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 (named for some alleged leaked order sheets), will hit shelves in September. In the above video, they show off the redesigned low-top style—which West himself has worn on several occasions—and note it has a few key differences from its predecessors. There's no suede patch on the medial side of the shoe, it's cut slightly higher, there's no back tab, and most of all, it boasts a bold orange stripe across the toe and radial side, which itself features the text "SPLY 350." Additionally, the upper features a tiger stripe design, making these overall a much more aggressive design than the original 350. This style is also rumored to come in black, which West has also worn earlier in the year.
Here's the thing, though: Sneaker News claims their pair is authentic and acquired via a source within Kanye West's camp, but it's hard to be sure. Additionally, until Adidas acknowledges the existence of these shoes period, it's hard to say they will be dropping so soon. But for Yeezus's sake and our own, we hope they do. This summer's been kind of a Yeezy Boost drought, and we're ready for the next flood.
