Yeezy Boost

The Yeezy Boost is a line of shoes designed jointly by Kanye West and Adidas. The shoe features thick white soles with a muted gray-and-white stitched suede high top. It has a wide strap across the laces with a side zip and front perforations to complete the look and style.

Employing a full suede upper, a high, boot-like silhouette, and sharp styling along the outsole, the Yeezy Boost features the new ‘boost foam’ soles from Adidas. The material has been developed to deliver soft and springy cushioning which feels ‘alive’. In 2013, Kanye West announced he was teaming up with Adidas after cutting ties with Nike and the new Yeezy Boost shoes represented a departure from Kanye’s former aesthetic at Nike. The high-end sneakers will feature, with its unique energy capsules for a combination of functional benefits. The Yeezy Boosts come in a ‘solar red/ftwr white/night flash’ colorway along with the light gray-colored version.

Kanye West rolled out the Yeezy Boost for the 2015 Valentine’s Day with Beyonce, Rihanna and Diddy among the front-row celebrity royalty.
