The sneaker giants did it again. With back-to-back releases, the Adidas x Yeezy collection returned with their 12th colorway last October 2020 in time with the fall season. Now, if you think the Yeezy 350 V2s hype is dead, think again as these sneakers continued to sell out after its launching.
A quick recap on the pair, Adidas had a last-minute modification on the naming, as the original “Asriel” received backlashes from a religious community. Prompted to change for the better, they settled with a more straightforward approach, calling it the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Carbon" which retailed for 220 USD.
The quality Primeknit upper sports a mix of Carbon blacks and gray hues in sections of woven, checkered, and flat knit patterns. Together with the signature side stripe in a solid black, it brings in a dark aesthetic perfect for the cool months. Exposed stitching and infinity laces run across the center, while an extended ankle collar serves as an alternative for a pull tab, all accessorizing the shoe in matching black colors. Contrasting the upper are semi-translucent cream midsoles that house a full-length BOOST cushioning.
It might not look like a blockbuster on the first released photos, but once the kicks are on your feet, it's an entirely different story. People buy it for aesthetics, and people buy it for comfort. It's just some of the sneakerhead things.
Speaking of comfort, wide-feet fellas ought to maximize the comfiness by copping off a pair with half a size up as the front has a narrowing build. Stylewise, these should be no problem. The minimalist colorway makes it easy to match an outfit, and the classic silhouette fits any athleisure and street style. These Yeezys definitely understood the assignment.
