Upcoming Yeezys And All The Surrounding Buzz
Just last month, Adidas announced there would be upcoming Yeezys drops. Since then, the internet has been restless at finding out all the facts, the gossip, and how to get their hands on em.
“Yeezy Release Dates” has been one of the top-searched terms in the industry since February 2015. That’s when we got our first Adidas Yeezy. Over the next seven years, the Three Stripes and Kanye West ”Ye” released hundreds of styles in a ton of colorways. Then in 2022, after the release of a bunch of Yeezys in the first 10 months, the whole deal was canceled. The previously-scheduled “drops” for the holiday season were withdrawn on October 25th when Adidas terminated its partnership with Ye. Retailers all over the globe were instructed to halt the sale of any and all Adidas Yeezy products as the Three Stripes evaluated their next step. That’s given that it can’t make use of any Yeezy branding no more.
Upcoming Yeezys: The What, Where, and How Much
In 2023, a few months after the whole squabble, we found out the sportswear giant has decided to sell their remaining Yeezy stock. The products will be exclusive to the Adidas website and their CONFIRMED App. As for the proceeds, part of them will go to charities combating discrimination and hate.
- The first drop you need to know about is the Yeezy Boost 350 “Pirate Black”. Known for its sleek and minimalist design, the black-on-black colorway gives the shoe a subtle and modest look. This design will retail for $230.
- Next, we’re covering the Yeezy MNVN “Bone”. This shoe features a monochromatic off-white colorway, with the “700” branding on the sides in black and reflective detailing on the heel. It’s dropping in infant, kids, and adult sizes for $140, $160, and $220 respectively.
- Lastly on our list is the Yeezy 350 V2 “Hyperspace”. This is definitely a standout shoe, offering a unique take on the popular model. Adidas originally released it in 2019 and made it exclusive to select Asian and Oceanic markets. The shoe has a transparent dash incorporated into the stretchy Primeknit shell and a top that is light gray overall. You can also see glimpses of the light gum color on the outsole. The Hyperspace will cost you $220.
An Associated Lawsuit
As you probably already know, investors have filed a class-action lawsuit against Adidas. Why? They claim executives knew about the problematic behavior of Ye for years before the company ended its partnership with the rapper. They also alleged Adidas failed to limit financial losses and take precautionary measures to minimize their exposure.
In response, The German behemoth said: “We outright reject these unfounded claims”, and “We will take all necessary measures to vigorously defend ourselves against them”.
Speculators believe the decision of restocking those Yeezys is Adidas’ method of silencing their investors for the time being. Basically, it’s a means of making up for the enormous losses they were to suffer.
How long is this shit gonna last?
Yeezy Mafia estimates upcoming Yeezys to keep rolling over the course of one year “if Adidas pace them nicely.” This gives everyone drooling over the news a one-year period to enjoy it while it lasts. After that, it’s probably all going down the drain. AGAIN! All the haste about Yeezys and Adidas shows that this might not become a long-term thing. The stock will come to an end, and the Yeezy hype will follow along.
But you know who’s here to stay? Your unproblematic friends from Nike and Jordan Brand. The Swoosh never fails to wow us with upcoming Jordans, Dunks, and artsy collabs in hot colorways. Which will sure as heck make you a shit ton of profit! You just gotta know how and where to resell your kicks, and you’re good as RICH!
So relish in all the Yeezy hype for now, The Shit Bot will be awaiting your return. You see, we’re not going anywhere.
