Size and fit

The Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Mist” Reflective is only available in men’s sizing. While it is true that these Yeezys fit true to size, it is recommended for one to go a half size up for a more comfortable fit. 

With Primeknit upper that provides a sock-like fit, the sneakers are more comfortable that way. This model comes with a lace-up closure, with tan-colored rope laces, for a more adjusted and personalized fit. The mesh portions along the side panels allow to flex one’s sock game with ease, while acting as the lacing system as well.

Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 Reflective Style

Like the non-reflective version of the Yeezy 380, an extraterrestrial-like pattern is woven into the Primeknit upper of the Yeezy Boost 380 “Mist” Reflective colorway. Arriving in perfect Kanye fashion, the upper consists of multiple shades of gray, earthy browns and hints of olive greens that solidify the base colorway while a perforated mesh area with sandy, contrasting beige color along the midfoot match the tan laces. Known as the reflective version, a 3M reflective finish is interwoven throughout the Primeknit upper that glows when exposed to bright lights or the flash of a camera. 

Being a very fashionable and versatile pair of Yeezys, one can wear these shoes with a whole wide array of looks. One can opt to go for a casual or sporty ensemble. For a casual attire, one can wear these kicks with a pair of jeans, joggers or sweatpants and oversized shirts, just like Kanye’s fashion style. A more sporty ensemble would suggest going for sporty fashion pieces such as shorts under spandex shirts and tank tops. 

Notable Features

This new silhouette from Kanye West’s famous line continues to reflect the superstar’s love of neutral tones. The Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Mist” Reflective features a reflective Primeknit pattern on the upper and ditches the traditional lateral side stripes from the previous Yeezy designs.

Moving downwards, a remarkably smooth and sleek, bone-colored midsole, which is of higher cut than its predecessor, is present and is infused with an upgraded translucent Boost tech for an insane amount of comfort with every stride. Equipped with a dark gum rubber outsole, it is engineered to provide a greater amount of traction and grip than the other Yeezy models making it perfect for those wet and windy months. Capping off the look is a small olive tongue tag and tan-tinted laces. 

Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 Reflective 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.  

As the Three Stripes brand continues to make new collaborations and shocking releases, one of the most well-loved and much-anticipated Adidas lines is Kanye West’s Yeezy collection. Now, Kanye has released a lot of excellent shoes that fans have always been waiting to drop. After blessing fans with two editions of the Yeezy 350 mainstay, Kanye West and his Three Stripes group look to redirect their attention to one of their newer designs: the Yeezy 380. Originally debuted towards the tail end of 2019, the lifestyle silhouette proceeds to its third entry through the “Mist” iteration, which is in Reflective and Non-Reflective versions.
