With YEEZY Season 3 and the major reveal of his new studio album just around the corner, we’re sure Kanye West still has more than a few tricks left up his sleeve. And as fans prepare for the whirlwind that is Yeezus time, today they’re treated with even more YEEZY news. According to sources, adidas Originals is planning to release a brand-new colorway of the immensely popular and incredibly unattainable Yeezy Boost 350 silhouette. Although initially reported as just a restock of the YEEZY Boost 350 “pirate black” model, Hypebeast has now confirmed that there will indeed be an all-new colorway available for the sneaker.
According to YeezyTalkWorldwide, the official name for the new colorway would be, “PIRBLK/BLUGRA/NOIESS” – one that is a mix of the pirate black and blue colors. Fans have anxiously awaited the announcement of the next Yeezy Boost release, as this will serve as the first release of the coveted sneaker since the YEEZY Boost 750 was made available back in December. Earlier speculations from a various numbers of outlets suggested that the newest colorway would be the “Beluga” option, which West was spotted wearing a few months ago.
Mark your calendars: The new YEEZY Boost 350 will likely drop February 19. Be sure to check back with us as we continue to update you on its status. In the meantime, check out the newest YEEZY Boost 750 reveal, here.
UPDATE 2/08/2016: According to Sole Collector, adidas has officially confirmed that the new YEEZY Boost 350 drop on February 19 will be a restock of the original “Pirate Black” colorway, despite numerous reports speculating a new colorway of the sneaker. adidas has also ensured that the drop will include more units this time around, in an effort to expand availability to its consumers – and to make good on Kanye West’s promise to the people.
UPDATE: 2/16/2016: Though Kanye has promised more availability for the next YEEZY sneaker drop, things don’t seem to be going according to plan. According to GQ, the sneaker will only be available in three big box stores – Finish Line, Footlocker, and Champs – with no boutique sneaker shops slated to be receiving shipments of the sneaker. Keeping in line with tradition, there is no set time for the release either, but given previous rollouts of the shoe, expect them to hit online and stores around 11am or 12pm. As a bonus, GQ has produced your best bet for getting your hands on them, which involves more raffles, app downloads, and quite possibly giving up your first born. May Yeezus be with you all.
