Who should NOT buy it

The Yeezy 350 Boost is not for users who prefer footwear with superb support on the midfoot. Unlike the Yeezy 750 Boost, the 350 Boost's stretchy Primkenit upper poorly holds the midfoot.

Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost: A crowd-pleaser

Probably the most popular of Kanye’s collaboration with Adidas’ Galway, highly fashionable, trendsetting, and a crowd-pleaser, these are just some of the things that describe the Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost. The unique Primeknit pattern was first primarily released in Turtle Dove colorway, which instantly became a hit because of its kickass looks and the comfort it brings to the wearer’s feet.

An ultra adaptive upper for better fit, comfort, and flexibility

Primeknit is a yarn that is knitted and fine-tuned to cater precisely to the areas where there is a need for flexibility and a wide range of movements. This results in a stretchy and sock-like material that covers the entire upper.

It will keep you on your feet

The Yeezy 350 Boost’s outsole was designed and patterned after the interior tuning of a tire. This technology gives the shoe more grip and traction.

Perfect for users with an on-the-go lifestyle

Like most slip-on models, the sock-like upper of this sneaker allows easy on and off. This upper is wrapped around the wearer’s feet, making athletes perform lighter, faster, and at the peak of their game.

Fashionably comfortable

The Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost silhouette quickly became a hit as it uses the Boost sole unit to guarantee that the sneakers maintain a soft, comfortable, and lightweight cushioning. Many of those who embrace the street style and hip-hop lifestyles of the popular Yeezy 350 Boost tend to patronize this comfortable footwear now worn by sneaker fans and celebrities alike.

Its midsole uses bundled thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), popularly known as Boost. This material compresses under pressure for shock absorption and allows a responsive bounce back to its original shape.

Snippy history

Released in 2015, the low-top design of the Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost features an off-white boost sole and a Primeknit upper, combining two new technologies being used by Adidas. The shoe first came out in Turtle Dove colorway and created a buzz among sneaker fans who would love to don the latest fashionable footwear they can get their hands on.

Soon limited edition colorways were released, including Black pirate, Moonrock, and Oxford Tan colorways were then released a few months later, enjoying the same success and patronage from sneakerheads retailing for more than a thousand dollars and raking much more from resellers.

Banking on the success of the first version, Adidas released the Yeezy Boost 350 Version 2 or V2 in 2016. Kanye slightly tweaked the design with a higher heel and sole. He also removed the pull tab and suede detailing in the second version design. The shoe first came out in Beluga colorway and was followed up with Copper, Red, Oreo, Zebra, and Bred colorways.
