According to Complex network site The Shoe Game, retailers will be receiving up to four times the amount of adidas YEEZY Boosts in 2016. The website points to “a close retail source” as the origin of these latest rumors and if they turn out to be true, perhaps Kanye West was being honest after all about wanting his creations to be available to all – albeit very, very slowly.
The retailer in question claimed they received up to 50 pairs of YEEZY Boost 350s per store in 2015 and expects upwards of 200 pairs for the next release at each retail location, which seems to be set for February. That figure is still a ways off the demand generated by Mr. West’s kicks, but it’s certainly a promising sign of quenching the market’s insatiable sneaker thirst.
So far no others have weighed in to substantiate these rumors but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as we learn more.
