Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2: A rarity?
Despite the increase in this shoe’s production numbers, it remains tough to find and get, according to a few reviews.
The Yeezy Boost 350 v2 in history
The first version of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 was dropped through a worldwide release on June 27, 2015. The design featured a grey and white colorway called turtle dove. Some two months later, on August 22, 2015, an all-black variant was released called the pirate black colorway.
As of June 2017, six Yeezy models have already been released, including the Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost v2. The Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost v2 made its first appearance in the Yeezys Season 3 show and was released on September 24, 2016.
This version, compared to its predecessor, had a bigger Boost sole and a higher cut. It is also made more popular by the “SPLY-350" wordmark written along the shoe’s lateral side. Some later 350 versions, however, would remove this stripe and wordmark for a more subtle design.
The curious case of the SPLY-350 wordmark
The SPLY-350 wordmark is written usually on both shoes of the Beluga colorway. The red, copper, and green colorways, on the other hand, have the SPLY-350 written backward on the right shoe.
