The adidas Yeezy Boost line is a collaboration between Adidas and rapper Kanye West with a series of shoes designed by him. The initial debut of the collaboration was the Yeezy Boost 750, a mid-top sneaker in a grey and white colourway, in February 2015. The shoe was exclusively available in New York City and sold out in just 10 minutes. An all-black colourway of the same model saw a launch in December 2015.
At the end of June 2015, the Yeezy Boost 350 released in the ‘Turtle Dove’ colourway. This second sneaker from the collaboration, in a low-top shape, featured a Primeknit upper and a full length BOOST™ midsole and three further colourways were released including ‘Pirate Black,’ ‘Moonrock’ and ‘Oxford Tan.’
The secondary version of the shoe, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2, saw a coloured stripe added and text reading ‘SPLY-350’ on the upper. The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Beluga’ was cheap adidas yeezy released on September 24th 2016. Three further colourways of ‘Copper,’ ‘Green’ and ‘Red’ followed late November and a ‘Core Black/CoreWhite’ dubbed Oreo was released before Christmas.
Six colourways of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2’s released in 2017. The black and red (‘Bred’) and ‘Zebra’ in February and a much-hyped ‘Triple White’ at the end of April; the ‘Zebra’ restocked both in June 2017 and November 2018, alongside the ‘Triple White’ which saw a huge restock in September 2018. The 2017 holiday season saw three further colourways released, including the ‘Semi-Frozen Yellow’ which was reportedly extremely limited, as well as the ‘Beluga 2.0’ in November 2017 and the ‘Blue Tint’ in December.
In 2017, the Yeezy 350 v2 Semi Frozen Yellow, later dubbed the Yebra, was the most limited, most exclusive, and most elusive colorway of Yeezy 350 v2s to drop. With such a large hype surrounding it, it was no surprise that it quickly sold out. Well, this week it’s back, but although it’s still limited, it’s another chance for you to catch the Yebra!
2018 saw a slow start for the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 with adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra the first release being the ‘Butter’ colourway on June 30th and two further releases in November, including the restock of the ‘Zebra’ and the release of the hotly anticipated ‘Sesame’ on November 23rd.
