These Yeezy Boost 350 Alternatives Are A Perfect Substitute For The Sold Out Kicks

The Yeezy Boost 350s remain somewhat impossible to obtain. Kanye West recently showed off a customized pair of tan Yeezy Boost 350s with an orange stripe that was as bright as a traffic cone. Those sneakers were a one-off, though. Regardless, Yeezy Boosts remain desired but the Adidas NMD Runner is a perfect substitute for the sold-out Pirate Black 350s. There was a limited supply of the NMD Runners on the PacSun site, which has also sold the Boost 350s during restocks, but it sold out quick; the NMDs are also sold out on the official Adidas site. That said, you can browse third party sites and shop these suitable alternatives. But be prepared to do your homework to ensure you get an authentic pair and be ready to spend extra.

That said, the NMD Runners are rad since you can dress these athletic trainers up or down, with skinny jeans, leggings, a skater dress, trousers, whatever! That sort of versatility is what makes this sort of shoe so coveted. The NMDs were designed for the urban nomad lifestyle, they go with anything, and can be styled in a variety of ways. That’s why stores, both brick and mortar and online, can’t keep the Boosts 350s or NMDs stocked.

It’s a snazzy shoe. Plus, the shoes are meant to be durable and are built to last, so you can shell out the $120 and they will last, making the overall cost per wear pretty small. The shoe are so worth the spend from that perspective.

You can still eagerly await a Yeezy Boost 350/NMD Runner restock and/or you can start shopping other substitutes. Or you can do your thing and hit up third parties.

The NMD Runner will surely give your wardrobe a “boost.”

There it is from all angles.

Once again, you can seek out subs if the Yeezy Boost 350 remains elusive and out of your reach. There are so many dupes that are equally as stylish and are even less trendy. Happy shopping, sneaker pimps!

Is This What The New adidas x Kanye Yeezy Boost 350 Looks Like?

Amid all the Kanye hoo-hah of the last few days, it’s been easy to forget that the world’s most controversial multi-hyphenate announced some new trainers – a surprise, considering how quick the hypebeasts are to jump on any new Yeezys.

So a hat tip to the gang at Sneakers Addict, who combed through the pics from the adidas x Kanye West Yeezy Season 3 launch at Madison Square Gardens and plucked out shots of the upcoming trainers, which they’ve helpfully mocked up.

Though not drastically different from the original Yeezy 350, there are some subtle tweaks, most notably the disappeared pull tab on the heel. The colourways are also a darn sight bolder than the originals, with blasts of lemon and orange echoing the brightness that infused the apparel collection.

Rumour has it that, this season, adidas are going to actually produce enough shoes for more than a handful of queue-junkies to actually get hold of them. But if you still can’t wait, then start lining up for the re-release of the Yeezy Boost 350 ‘Pirate Black’, which the good folks at adidas have teased as landing on 19 February. Though it goes without saying, they won’t be around for long.

Are the new adidas x Kanye Yeezy 350 Boost colourways an exciting shift, or completely uninspired? Let us know in the comments below.
