After Kanye West was spotted in Los Angeles wearing what appeared to be an update of the adidas Originals YEEZY Boost 350, a mockup of the shoe and rumored release information have now appeared online. Rumors suggest the YEEZY Boost 350 V3 will drop sometime in late 2019 or early 2020 and will cost $230, making it the most expensive YEEZY Boost 350 yet.
The mockup (below) shows how the rubber midsole rises higher around the heel than on other versions, almost mimicking the design of the YEEZY basketball sneaker West has worn and teased previously. The ankle collar almost rises to a mid-top level, with the side stripe shortened and modified slightly.
The original photo of West (at the top of this story) showed that while the largely Primeknit upper and rubber-encased Boost midsole are similar enough to the V1 and V2, there are enough differences to suggest what he was wearing is the third Boost 350.
The pattern on the upper is slightly different from those seen on the V1 and V2. It also appears more symmetrical, something that is evident when looking at the sneaker top-down (on the rapper’s left foot). The tighter ankle collar also gives it a less exaggerated shape than its predecessors.
Stay tuned for further information as it arrives.
