Size and fit

These shoes from Ye’s collection is made available in unisex sizing. Women who want to cop a pair for themselves can go their usual size. With shoes having a snug fit, it is advised to go a half size up, and also if one has narrow feet or if a snug fit isn’t one’s liking. For a more customized fit, the black rope laces can be adjusted. 

Adidas Yeezy 700 v3 Style

Mirroring an alien-like, futuristic vibe, the Yeezy 700 V3 is designed with vintage aesthetics infused with lifestyle detailing. Instead of adding multiple layers of suede and leather like the 700 V1 and V2, a mixture of mesh and rubber materials are used for the upper. Reflective elements are also present on the upper that emit light in the dark. 

The V3 comes in two colorways, the “Azael” and “Alvah”, which are inspired from Hebrew names.  For the “Azael” colorway, the shoe’s organically designed upper comes constructed with a white, mesh base and bulky, cream-colored exoskeleton-like cage overlay that glows in the dark. The “Alvah” colorway has still the same construction as the “Azael” but it features a triple-black look, gray stripes and black technical mesh base with cage overlays that still glow-in-the-dark.

With its trendy style, this can be a go-to shoe for street and casual wear. One can pair this with any pair of pants, denim, joggers, jeggings, or even sweat pants that can be topped with plain shirts, oversized tees, tank tops, and flannel pieces. It’s actually a stylish shoe that can really be a fashion staple for some. 

Notable Features

Due to the significant changes from the previous 700 versions, the upper makes use of rubber panel instead of the suede detailing for the V1 and V2. This rendition features a molded all-over monofilament RPU overlays that glow in the dark for structure and stability. A black neoprene bootie construction provides a snug fit while the tongue features hits of reflective accents for low-light visibility. 

Not similar to the original and V2 version of the 700, the V3 ditches the Boost midsole. Instead, this edition boasts of an all-new PU encapsulated EVA midsole for all-day comfort and support. For a supportive feel and bold look, a chunky white bone midsole is much more double in size prior to other Yeezy 700 models. The OrthoLite insole provides zonal cushioning in the specific areas of the shoe. Furthermore, the light blue traction pods secure the blue-accented cushioning while a herringbone rubber outsole underneath provides improved grip and traction.  

Adidas Yeezy 700 v3 History

Adolf ‘’Adi”Dassler, son of a cobbler, invented spiked shoes for track and field. Four years later Adi founded the German sports shoe company Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory in 1920—ater known as Adidas. Adidas soared high and the breakthrough came for Adi Dassler when Germany won the Soccer World Cup in 1954, wherein the German team wore boots with screw-in studs made by him.

With rapid developments in sports, Adi Dassler was driven to specialize and optimize his products. He then started using well-known athletes in advertising his products namely Jesse Owens, Muhammad Ali, Max Schmeling, and many others. Adidas has tripled its sales in a year and since then, the company gained the utmost attention globally. Throughout the years, Adidas continuously improves and produces quality footwear and sportswear that are admired and praised for their high demands worldwide.

Towards the end of 2019, Adidas and Yeezy introduced this model to their chunky and bulky lineup of the 700 edition. As a refresher, this model is constructed with new technologies that deliver quality performance and style.
