Our verdict


While the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700’s sculpted and multi-colored facade looks outdated or dad-shoe-like, many consumers are riveted by its features and details. The upper is wrapped with breathable mesh and flexible leather, offering breathability and durability. And while its price is too demanding and its Boost sole may not be as pillowy as other Boost-infused Yeezy variations, the shoe's comfiness and supportiveness make it a real must-buy.

  • You've been looking for a Kanye-designed kick that can latch on to various surfaces.
  • You're after sneakers that offer an elevated experience, especially around the heel.

The Adidas Yeezy Boost 700's history

In January 2016, Kanye teased Yeezy fans by wearing an unnamed chunky dad shoe, which was later coined as the Yeezy Calabasas Runner. In February 2017, the same silhouette resurfaced during Kanye West’s 5th New York Fashion Week show in three colorways. The color mixtures were white/ teal/ orange/ black, while the particular colorway worn by Kanye earlier on was the white/ teal and triple black version.

In August 2017, the Calabasas Runner got its official name when the online retailer Yeezy Supply introduced a blocky version of the Yeezy Boost called the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700. Sold at a $300 pre-order price tag, the actual Yeezy Boost 700, also called the Wave Runner, was distributed in November of the same year.
