An advertisement for West's 2015 shoe collaboration.

The Adidas Yeezy is the official collaboration sneaker by Kanye West and Adidas. Four versions have been released, the Yeezy Boost 350, Yeezy Boost 350 V2, Yeezy Boost 750 and the Yeezy Boost 950 Duck Boot have been released,[1] the Yeezys will be seen in basketball, American football, football, and more.[2]


The collaboration's first season was noted for its stripped down, ready-to-wear style, which drew on military clothing and flesh-toned colors.[3] Vogue observed a pessimistic aesthetic and "a protective toughness, a body-conscious severity that made the clothes more than a simple accessory."[citation needed]


As of April 29, 2017 a total of 15 colorways have been released between Adidas and Yeezy across the three models detailed below,[4] this does not include two additional releases of the Yeezy Boost 350 which were available in infants sizes. Through a combination of factors including popularization by celebrities, Adidas Yeezy sneakers have come to be extremely influential and highly coveted.[5]

On December 3, 2013, Adidas confirmed a new shoe collaboration deal with West,[6] on February 8, 2015, the name and design for the Kanye West and Adidas collaboration shoe was revealed. On February 10 Adidas revealed posters of the Yeezy Boost 750 all throughout their flagship stores, the Yeezy boost 750 was initially released on February 14, exclusively for those who confirmed a reservation through the Adidas mobile app. This initial release of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 was limited to 9000 pairs to be available only in New York City via the Adidas smartphone app; the Adidas Yeezy Boosts were sold out within 10 minutes.[7] Between February 21 and February 28 the Yeezy Boost 750 was available through a wider range of retailers and boutiques, the shoe retailed for $350.[8]

On June 11, 2016, Yeezy Season 2 began with the second set of releases of the Yeezy Boost 750, the shoe was sold in an all-grey color scheme with a phosphorescent (glow-in-the-dark) gum outsole. This was the first time a glow-in-the-dark sole has been featured since the Nike Air Yeezy line, the shoe features improved materials such as higher quality suede and leather. Like the previous 750s, this was sold for a retail price of $350.

Yeezy Boost 350[edit]

On June 27, 2015, the second shoe from the collaboration, the Yeezy Boost 350 was made available through a worldwide release,[9] the shoe was first released in a white and grey "Turtle Dove" Color scheme.

Revisions included additional support and padding to the heel.[13] However, both iterations are relatively identical in appearance. All variants of the shoe retailed for $200.[14]
