Yeezy 500 ‘Utility Black’
Kanye West and adidas launched the Yeezy 500 ‘Utility Black’ in July 2018. The retro-inspired silhouette counterbalances its bulky form with a sleek, all-black design. What sets this colorway apart from the standard triple-black finish is a singular use of tone – it’s a semi-faded black that coats the combination mesh and suede upper, as opposed to the pitch-black variety that’s more common in the sneaker firmament.
Yeezy Boost 700 V2 ‘Vanta’
Seen as the successor to the first Yeezy 700 that debuted at Kanye West’s 2017 Yeezy Season 5 show, the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 sneaker maintains elements of the original while updating it with a sleeker profile. Released in June 2019, the 'Vanta' edition brings an all-over black hue to its multi-layered mesh upper with suede overlays. Below, full-length adidas Boost technology cushions the foot, encapsulated within the 700's distinct chunky sole.
Yeezy Boost 700 ‘Wave Runner’
This inaugural colorway of Kanye West’s Yeezy Wave Runner 700 launched in November 2017, following a public debut earlier in the year as part of the Yeezy Season 5 runway show. The sneaker’s retro-inspired lines worked in tandem with a chunky silhouette reminiscent of an earlier era. A mesh base is finished in grey on the quarter panels and bright blue and teal on the forefoot. Suede overlays arrive on the toe and heel accented grey leather eyestays. Other details include neon green laces, a bulky white midsole, and pops of black and bright orange.
Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Citrin Non-Reflective’
Defining an era, the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 is the manifestation of Kanye West's unique design methodology and cultural influence. This 'Citrin' version—launched in September 2019—carries a dual-tone Primeknit bootie and tonal cord laces. Translucent monofilament panels are inserted into the sides while the back heel pull is removed for this colorway. Its distinctive TPU ribbed rubber sole, encasing Boost cushioning, is updated with a contrast tread pattern.
Yeezy Slides ‘Desert Sand’
The Yeezy Slide 'Desert Sand' offers Kanye West’s take on a casual sandal, good for postgame relaxation or weekend lounging. A subtle tan finish complements the minimalist build, made with lightweight and durable EVA foam. Exterior branding is limited to adidas’ three-stripe logo debossed on the soft footbed. The outsole is crafted with strategically placed horizontal grooves for superior comfort and traction.
Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Sesame’
The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Sesame’ features a subdued color palette that matches the shoe’s minimalist construction. The ventilated Primeknit upper retains the heel tab and distinct center stitch detailing but does away with the mirrored ‘SPLY-350’ branding. A semi-translucent rubber midsole underneath encompasses a full-length Boost cushioning, while a gum rubber outsole delivers enhanced traction.
Yeezy Slides ‘Bone’
The Yeezy Slide 'Bone' applies a neutral hue to Kanye West’s take on an everyday sandal, constructed from EVA foam for lightweight comfort. The minimalist design is good for a sleek, contemporary look, with exterior branding limited to adidas’ three-stripe logo debossed at the heel of the footbed. The slip-on build rides atop a high-traction outsole, fitted with strategically placed grooves for sure footing.
Yeezy Boost 700 V3 ‘Clay Brown’
Yeezy returned to the Earth-toned palette with the Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown. The Clay Brown slightly resembles the Alvah with its primarily black look. But instead of a completely muted upper, it dons lighter earth tones, adding contrast throughout the silhouette. The Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown features a black engineered mesh upper with light brown streaks running along the side encompassed by a signature translucent cage unit. A thick EVA foam midsole, reinforced toe cap, and 3M detailing on the forefoot complete this futuristic look.
Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Carbon’
The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Carbon’ features a breathable Primeknit upper in a neutral black and grey finish. The sneaker’s lateral side features a streak of black via the post-dyed monofilament side stripe, separating a light grey weave up top with mostly black construction on the lower half. No-tie bungee laces deliver a secure fit. The sneaker rides on a full-length Boost midsole, surrounded by a yellow-tinged rubber cage.
