Holiday season is here, which clearly has Kanye West and adidas in a giving mood. The brand with the Three Stripes is not only releasing new sneakers to close out the year, but they are also giving you another chance at copping past drops. Here, we're in turn showcasing all of the adidas YEEZY sneakers that are releasing this holiday season.
Beginning with the glow-in-the-dark YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Yeezreel,” you'll have a shot at landing a number of coveted YEEZY kicks for yourself or others over the next few weeks. Following the "Yeezreel," adidas is launching the YEEZY 500 High “Slate,” YEEZY Boost 700 “Carbon Blue,” and YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Yecheil.” You can also look forward to the return of the "Zebra" YEEZY Boost 350 V2.
See below for details surrounding each adidas YEEZY release for this holiday season. We'll be updating this post with news of additional drops as they surface.
adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Yeezreel”
Release Date: December 14
Editor’s Notes: The “Yeezreel” adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 is the latest addition to the ever-growing YEEZY lineup. The sneaker features glow-in-the-dark soles and reflective detailing on the laces. Although the “Yeezreel” bears several similarities to the “Glow” YEEZY 350 V2, this model incorporates black and grey flecks throughout the upper, giving it a distinct look. “Yeezreel” or “Jezreel” translates to “God will sow” and references a valley in the Northern District of Israel.
adidas YEEZY 500 High “Slate”
Release Date: December 16
Editor’s Notes: The YEEZY 500 High “Slate” features a molded upper crafted from cow suede, premium leather, and elastane, in addition to a padded collar. The sneaker also incorporates a rubber wrap along the midsole for added support and abrasion resistance, reflective piping, adiPRENE+ cushioning to absorb impact and improve rebound, and a light rubber outsole. This marks the first time that one of Kanye’s adidas designs has been re-released in a different height.
adidas YEEZY Boost 700 “Carbon Blue”
Release Date: December 18
Editor’s Notes: The “Carbon Blue” colorway’s sole unit looks to be taken from the popular “Inertia” YEEZY Boost 700 V2, with orange detailing on the sides of the midsole. The rest of the shoe is done up in an assortment of blue-ish tones. Elsewhere, the mesh paneling and leather overlays appear to be taken from the “Wave Runner.” As with the “Teal Blue” colorway, this offering features a technical mesh upper in varying shades of grey and blue. The shoe is quickly becoming one of the collaboration’s most popular silhouettes, borrowing heavily from previously-released color schemes.
adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Yecheil”
Release Date: December 20
Editor’s Notes: The Yecheil’s largely black upper is decorated with multi-toned re-engineered Primeknit and post-dyed monofilament side stripe woven in. The midsole utilizes adidas’ BOOST technology, while reflective threads are woven into the laces. West and the Three Stripes confirmed the “Yecheil” adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 will be available globally in adults, kids, and infant sizes
adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Zebra”
Release Date: December 21
Editor’s Notes: One of Kanye West‘s most coveted adidas YEEZY sneakers is officially returning, with adidas confirming a restock of the “Zebra” YEEZY Boost 350 V2. The colorway has been restocked multiple times since its initial drop in February 2017.
adidas YEEZY 700 V3 “Azael”
Release Date: December 23
Editor’s Notes: Unlike previous 700s, the “Azael” boasts a mesh upper rather than leather and suede. The upper is reminiscent of an athletic-looking sample West was spotted in earlier this year, though the hardshell overlay adapts the sporty silhouette into a more futuristic look. The biggest deviation from previous versions of the 700 is that the “Azael” has no BOOST sole. Instead, it comes with a PU encapsulated EVA midsole for comfort and durability.
