Kayne West’s ADIDAS sneaker collection Yeezy 350 Boost in “Grey/White” sold out in a record 15 minutes, after its worldwide release date on July 27. The sneakers were being sold on eBay for as much as $2,000. With the release date of the “Black” Yeezy 350 Boost close at hand, August 22nd according to Kayne himself, bets are being made on whether the Yeezy can beat their last record sells. Perhaps only 10 minutes this go around?
There was a lot of hype leading up to the Yeezy 350 Boost release with Kylie Jenner and Ronnie Fieg posting shots of their sneakers several days before the release date. On June 28 Sean Diddy Combs performed in his red pair of Yeezy 350s at the BET Awards. If that wasn’t already enough publicity, Kayne also made a surprise appearance to ‘hand deliver’ sneakers to buyers at the London Adidas flagship on release date.
The Yeezy 350 claims to be the coolest and the most comfy pair of sneakers in your closet. The $200 question: Is the Yeezy Boost 350 worth all the hype that it has been receiving? The consensus: Yes, this street style sneaker is supposed to be worth its weight in gold and the most comfortable sneakers you own.
So with that in mind, get ready to enter your credit card information to purchase your pair like the speed of lightning. Or for a more sure method, get in line the day before… we aren’t kidding!
