Put ‘em up people. The oft-hyped adidas and Kanye collaboration has a new pair of Yeezys set to release. Kanye West was showing off the Yeezy Boost 750 during Grammy Weekend. I know. You’re thinking the Grammys just happened?
It doesn’t matter, we have a date and a price. Set your smartphone calendar for February 13-15 in NYC and save up around $350. Some of you are are scoffing at the price tag. $350 for shoes. Here’s a thought experiment. You pay $600 for an iPad to watch Netflix. Which makes less sense?
The date is timed with All-Star weekend. He was going to let the game finish, but hell.. It’s Kanye. He’s been pushing the adidas collaboration. During a sit down with Ellen, he thanked adidas for recognizing his visionary talent.
“There were so many things I wanted to do with film with clothing and I just didn’t have the words or the resources or the backing or the perception that I could do it being I was I was a rapper and all these things,” Yeezus said. “With this Adidas deal they’ve allowed me a little bit of Oxygen. Adidas allowed me to make my own clothing line which is something I wanted to do.”
Yeah, sounds like a humble guy to me too.
The shoes will be limited, so if you’re not in the Big Apple prepare for astounding prices on eBay. If you are in town for the All-Star game, the lines will be obscene.
A way around that is using the adidas confirmed app. It works for both iOS and Android. reserve your shoes and complete the purchase from your smartphone.
