Everything You Need to Know About the Yeezy Boost 350

Sneaker Picks  /   /  By Sarah Wetmore

1. It came out on Saturday, June 27, 2015.

The grey, black, and white low top Yeezy Boost 350 features a one-piece unlined Adidas Primeknit upper with minimal branding and an insole with special Boost’s™ technology. Built for everyday battle, whether you’re facing paparazzi or carpool duty, the Yeezy Boost 350 shines in its simplicity.

2. It’s the second shoe to be released from Kanye’s Season 1 collaboration with Adidas, which debuted at New York Fashion week last February.

The first was the Yeezy Boost 750, a grey high top version with toe strap and side zipper.

3. Don’t call it chic, and don’t call Kanye a designer.

Yeezy Boost 350 is as much a solution as it is a fashion statement. In a Style.com interview, Kanye said he designed this kick as “a solution to problems that me and my wife and my friends face…the idea of being a dad, no time to look in the mirror because I’m looking at my daughter…and I’ve got to take her to dance class.” Clearly influenced by the minimalistic and athletic aesthetics of Helmut Lang and Martin Margiela, Kanye wouldn’t put himself in the same category as these fashion designers. He readily admits to being more of a tailor and a problem solver than a technical and artistic creator. Case in point, he doesn’t design Kim’s outfits—he tailors and styles them.

4. When in doubt, black it out.

If you want to dress like Kanye West, the formula is actually pretty simple. Black top, black pants, Yeezy Boosts, boom, you’re done. Celebrity status has never been easier to achieve. All black plus a camo jacket, all black on the beach with your Only One, all black on the red carpet, all black all day. The advanced version would be a black leather jacket, white t-shirt, light distressed denim, and Yeezy Boosts. For more outfit inspo, see our Take It Yeezy collection.

5. Get yours today on eBay.

If you’ve procrastinated, we think Yeezy Boosts would be the ultimate belated Father’s Day gift. But if you’re as on top of your gift game as your kick game, shop the Yeezy Boost 350 for yourself on eBay today.
