Adidas Yeezy Boost 380
If one line at adidas is to be considered a perennial favorite, it’s definitely the Yeezy line. As many of you know, Kanye West is the genius behind the big hype. Through him, we get to see a new Yeezy almost every month. And, because of that, one could assume that the music producer and designer doesn’t want to take a break.
His editions and creations enliven every single Yeezy over and over again. This is especially true for the famous Yeezy 350 V2 series. As soon as a new colourway appears in this series, sneakerheads and hypebeasts storm the stores at once. If you don’t pay attention or take too long to decide, you will most likely go home with an L. The sneaker probably owes the big hype to this silhouette. Due to the slim and dynamic shape, every colour and detail simply come out perfectly.
The Features of the adidas Yeezy Boost 380
But, lately a new Yeezy has emerged, which builds slightly on the aesthetic of its predecessor. The number in the name is already the first indication of the next collaboration. The adidas Yeezy Boost 380 also has a similar structure and an unusual dynamic that strongly reminds one of the 350 V2. The most recognizable feature of the new Yeezy is in fact the sole. Some Yeezys usually come with a ribbed outsole. But, this silhouette is smooth and supple, making it look even more dynamic, perhaps even almost aggressive.
Some silhouettes are rather flat and only have slight curves. But, the Yeezy 380 has an extremely high toe and a heel, most especially. This is not the only thing that makes the shoe stand out, but the increased wearing comfort also speaks for the 380. But, what would a Yeezy Boost sneaker be without the cushioning? adidas’ Boost cushioning is one of the best cushioning technologies the sneaker world has seen. We would even consider wearing a brick ourselves provided they had a Boost sole. But, the lacing system is also an offshoot of its predecessor. Most Yeezys can also be recognized by the upper material, which is usually made of a single piece. A tongue, eyestays, or other overlays are not found on some models.
The First Colourway of the adidas Yeezy Boost 380
As mentioned, the new Yeezy 380 line is very fresh and has not been on the market for that long. The first leaks came out at the end of 2019 and Kanye West showed the first colourway himself. He was actually seen with the adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Alien” out on the streets. On December 12, 2019, the model finally made its debut. But, after that, there was a long radio silence from West and adidas, because the next leaks did not appear until the new year. Pictures of an adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Mist” and a reflective version were already uploaded to the net. The adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Mist Reflective” was even released via a shock drop in the USA a short while later, while the non-reflective version is still waiting for its debut.
