When Kanye West announced that he moved to adidas from Nike in order to allow more people a chance to purchase his designer sneaker – I got excited. I thought the the Nike Air Yeezy Glow in the Dark sneaker was one of the coolest shoe of all time! (I actually did, but to get my hands on it I either had to have lined up for hours, or had a script/bot to help me faciliate the purchase online).
Now with the recent releases of adidas YEEZY Boost shoes, I am unsure if the supply is there to satisfy the demand. Either it’s a sneaker game thing, but once again, it seems extremely difficult to potentially get my hands in one of these shoes. To be honest, I do think this shoe looks weird, but after looking at the recent photos HB posted, it’s a clever, thoughtful design.
I am still not sure on what occasion I would wear them if I do get my hands on them. My goal is to order two online this coming Saturday. Why? Buy one, and sell one (hopefully for a high price for extra cash for Christmas). On 19 December 2015, adidas and other online outlets could very well crash while sneakerheads and Kanye fans try to order the YEEZY Boost 750 All Black – just in time for the holidays, or to wear it to the new Star Wars film.
Take a look at this shoe yourself, and let me know by commenting below if you would wear these sneakers, and for what occasion. Read more to review stocklist. Friendly tip from my friend Justin Lee that you require a U.S address if you are ordering from adidas.com – and follow stores/brands on Twitter for annoucements on when you can hit buy!
