Whether you’re a sneakerhead or new to the game, you’re certain to find a pair of Yeezy Boost sneakers that suit you in this range of high-top and low-top styles.
After releasing the adidas YEEZY Boost 750 in 2015, YEEZY cemented its status as one of most influential sneaker brands when all 9,000 limited-edition pairs sold out in just 12 minutes. Kanye West’s collaborative streetwear project with adidas continues to create directional sneakers with cult appeal, including the best-selling Yeezy Boost 350, Yeezy 950, and Yeezy Powerphase. Each ‘Yeezy Season’, you can expect unique colorways of some of the most popular silhouettes to drop. Read on for our YEEZY sneakers buying guide, which will help you decide on the styles to buy and find the size that will fit you best.
The Most Wanted YEEZY Sneakers
YEEZY Boost 350 Sneakers
Arguably the brand’s most recognizable styles, the Yeezy Boost 350 has been released in V1, V2 and V3 versions. These decade-defining low-top sneakers are built on a BOOST midsole for cushioning, durability, flexibility and energy return. They come with an innovative Primeknit upper that hugs the foot and a lace fastening at the front. Following the success of the original ‘Turtle Dove’ colorway, the Yeezy Boost 350 has since been reissued in a variety of hues.
YEEZY Boost 700 Sneakers
The collab’s Yeezy Boost 700 Sneakers were initially released in very limited numbers in 2017, and then restocked in 2018. They continue to be designed in a selection of unique color combinations, while keeping the same streamlined silhouette. Depending on whether it’s the V1 or V2 iteration, YEEZY Boost 700s are crafted with a Primeknit upper or from a combination of mesh, nubuck, leather and reflective 3M accents. They come with full-length boost technology and a thick rubber midsole.
YEEZY Powerphase Sneakers
YEEZY uses butter-soft leather to craft its Powerphase Sneakers, which are built on an ultra-comfortable EVA midsole and split cupsole. With a distinct retro appeal, the YEEZY Powerphase (also known as the YEEZY Calabasas) boasts gold-foil ‘Calabasas’ branding at the side, a signature Adidas logo and perforated Three Stripe branding. They have been released in a range of colorways, from Clear Brown and Quiet Grey, to Black and Purple White.
The YEEZY Sneakers Sizing Guide
YEEZY sneakers are listed in US sizes, and you can use the women’s size chart below to see how this correlates with UK, European (same as Italian) and France sizing.
For example, if you usually wear a women’s UK 5 or EU 38, you should buy your YEEZY sneakers in a US size 8.
Sneakers are unisex and there is a size and a half difference between men’s and women’s. For example, if you are a women's size 8 then you would be a men's 6.5.
How To Care For Your YEEZY Sneakers
Avoid cleaning your YEEZY sneakers in the washing machine or putting them in the tumble dryer, as this can damage the fabric of the upper and the soles. We would recommend brushing off any excess dirt and then use either a soft, damp cloth or a specialist cleaner to spot clean any marks and stains. The soles of your YEEZYs can be cleaned with warm water and a bristle brush. For the best results, remove laces and hand wash separately.
To avoid causing discoloration, do not use bleach on your sneakers and keep them away from direct heat and sunlight. Store them in the branded YEEZY box provided when they are not in use.
- Where can I buy YEEZY sneakers?
You can buy the latest YEEZY sneakers from either the Adidas or YEEZY Supply website, as well as other specialist sneaker sites and authorized retailers. Around 40,000 pairs are released per drop, and the limited number available means they often sell out fast. To increase your chances of getting a pair, we recommend knowing the release schedule and shopping online early on release morning.
- Are YEEZY sneakers true to size?
Generally the brand’s sneakers run small to size. However, the fit can vary between styles:
YEEZY Boost 350: YEEZY Boost 350 V2 sneakers tend to fit half a size small in comparison to your standard size. If you have wide feet, you should take a full size up. However, the YEEZY Boost 350 V1s are true to size.
YEEZY 500: The YEEZY 500 also runs around half a size small. Yet many also prefer to buy their usual size in this design.
YEEZY 700: YEEZY 700 comes in three versions, and they all fit slightly differently. Thanks to its narrow toe box, the OG YEEZY 700 fits snug. It’s worth buying YEEZY 700 sneakers in the Inertia, Mauve and Analog colorways one size larger than your usual size due to the elastic at the tongue and padded design. A Primeknit construction on the YEEZY 700 V2 means there is more space at the toe, and it fits true to size.
- Are YEEZY sneakers comfortable?
These highly coveted sneakers are made with comfort and style in mind. Depending on the design, YEEZY sneakers feature Adidas BOOST technology or adiPrene technology for a lightweight feel and responsive cushioning.
