It would be an understatement to say that when Kanye West joined Adidas after his departure from Nike that the sneaker world was set on fire. Now with over dozens of color ways and different silhouettes including the 700, 500, and the iconic 350v2, here are the five best Yeezy Colorways.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Turtledove
If you’re a sneakerhead, and more importantly a true Yeezy fan, you knew that the OG Yeezy 350 was going to be on this list. It’s the shoe that not only made sure you remembered that Kanye West made amazing shoes, but it would put Kanye West in the same conversation with other great shoe names. If you follow Kanye West on twitter, you may have seen the post where he showed off the original concept for what would become the iconic 350. It’s a shoe that has proven to be so popular that its resale value is over $1000 as of 2019. But enough slobbing on the knob that is the OG 350. What makes this a colorway you’d want to own is that it represents the first step in what would become the Yeezy empire.
Adidas Yeezy 500 Bone White
I’ve always felt like the 500s just don’t get the same kind of love that the 350 V2 and the 500 get. Even when you’re looking at the resale market on sites like stockX and GOAT the 500s just don’t hit the same kind of resale numbers that the other two shoe silhouettes. So with that in mind the 500 Bone White is a shoe that deserve more attention that it would usually get. The colorway is not a full white shoe, instead it has shades of white and light grey. Released in August of 2019 if you can get your hands on this shoe you won’t regret it. I feel like in a couple years this shoe will be more appreciated than it current is and the resale value is going to skyrocket, especially if the 500 is discontinued.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Hyperspace
When it was announced that there were going to be three new Yeezy 350 V2 colorways realized in 2019 it was no surprise that people were going to get excited about it. What was even more exciting was the rumor that the three color ways were going to be exclusive to a different region of the world. Of the three colorways, the Clay colorway was released in North and South America, the True Form was released in Europe and Africa, and finally the Hyperspace was released in Asia and Australia. If you happened to be lucky enough to live in Asia and Australia it could be argued you got the best looking of the three color ways. Don’t get me wrong, all three colorways look good, but the Hyperspace? Those are another level of cool.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 Inertia
When the original Yeezy Boost 700 came out the original color way for lack of a better word felt like something a four year old would wear. Of course the shoe sold like gangbuster but it wasn’t until the Inertia came that it felt like you could take the 700s like a serious shoe. Released in March of 2019, the Inertia sports a grey upper and midsole, with two light orange circles that just make the shoe really come together. While a second iteration came out in September of this year called the V2, it just doesn’t hit the same way these do.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Semi Frozen Yellow
Rounding out the list at number five is the 350 V2 Semi Frozen Yellow Yeezy. Originally released in limited quantities back in November of 2017 this color way just screams stand out. Using the same pattern as the Zebra, the Semi Frozen is just one great looking color way. It sports a bright yellow primary color, grey for the pattern, and a bright red that makes the iconic 350 V2 really pop. The shoe proved to be so popular that it had a second release in December of 2018. People who couldn’t get their hands on the iconic shoe turned to more “interesting” methods of taking Yeezys they already had and simply highlighting them with less than stellar results.
