2021 Yeezys: What to COP and What to DROP!

By January 1, 2021July 12th, 2022Sneaker News, Yeezy

2021 YeezysAs with every year since 2015, Kanye West’s line with Adidas takes center stage. For all the good and bad reasons. For the ingenuity and uniqueness of silhouettes, and the controversial biblical names. But whether you’re still into Yeezys or are just over them, 2020 Yeezys were there. They featured the good, the bad, and the “am not copping this!”. And soon enough, 2021 Yeezys will be a thing, and from the early leaks, it looks like this new year will be a busy one for Kanye. Especially if he goes on with his plan of moving Yeezy production to the US.

But no matter where they’re produced, Yeezys are best bought at retail using a sneaker bot. A powerful and efficient bot with loads of history copping Yeezys. So, for a list of the best bots you can run to get 2021 Yeezys, click below.

So, from what we know so far, the Yeezy season is starting out soon. With 2021 Yeezys making their first appearance as soon as mid-January. And as it’s been for the last 3 years, new Yeezy colorways and silhouettes will keep on dropping until we can no longer take it!

January 2021 Yeezys

January Yeezys are not ones to get you on the edge of your seat TBH. They’re plain, yellow-ish, and so light-colored you should put in some extra effort to keep them clean. On January 16th, the first of 2021 Yeezys will drop and it’ll be the Yeezy 700 V3 ‘Safflower’. AGAIN! Releasing in full family sizes, the Yeezy Safflower will now make it to the US after dropping in Europe and Asia back in November 2020. In terms of numbers, the retail price of the Yeezy Safflower is $200 and so far, the reselling value sits at around $260. Not really a flip-worthy shoe, but flexing Kanye’s most futuristic silhouette is always worth it. 

New Year, New Yeezys!

Not that this next silhouette is really new, but the colorway is. And that’s as “NEW” as we can get with the Adidas Yeezy line lately. Continuing with the trend of the super mineral naming, January will see the release of the new Yeezy Boost 380 “Yecorite”. That’s supposed to be a combination of Yeezy and Kryptonite?

The Outerspace-inspired Yeezy dons tan or pinkish woven uppers with hues of brown appearing right in the middle. The usual Yeezy 380 patter covers the outers, and a creamy midsole and rubber red-tinted soles finish off the look.

The retail price of the ‘Yecorite’ stands at $230 with a release rumored to happen around the end of January.

February 2021

adidas-yeezy-boost-350-v2-early-20212 or 3 New 350 V2s!

If the rumors prove to be true, February is going to be quite the month for 2021 Yeezys. Initial news says we’ll be getting 3 new Yeezy Boost 350 V2; The Ash Blue, Ash Pearl, and Ash Stone. And though the Ash pearl and Ash stone look way too similar to the Yeezy Yeshaya and Sand, the new Yeezy Ash Blue is a colorway I personally liked A LOT!

That mix of Grey, Blue, Black, and yellow on the translucent side stripe makes it really stand out from the tonal Yeezys we’ve gotten recently. 

However, copping any of these 3 colorways shouldn’t be a bad thing. After all, 7 out of the top 10 best selling Yeezy in 2020, are 350 V2s. So if at any point you feel like selling your Yeezys, it shouldn’t be hard to find them a loving home.

No! Kanye Didn’t Just Do that!

You might think that ruining a Yeezy as iconic as the OG 700 is hard, but nope! Kanye’s here to prove he can make you hate any Yeezy you’ve loved so much before.

Behold, the Yeezy 700 ‘Sun’!

What was once a trendsetter, style icon, and a symbol streetwear luxe, is now a yellow and orange mess. They look like real fakes or poorly-made custom Yeezys. But I won’t shower you with more of my feelings on this colorway, you might actually like it, and I won’t judge!

Staying so true to its name, this pair features yellow and orange hues with some touches of teal hinting at the OG colorway. An additional lighter shade of orange dresses the midsole and the black Suede overlays pull the whole design together. As much as they could!

The Yeezy 700 Sun is set to release in February 2021, for the hefty retail price of a good-looking Yeezy 700, which is $300!

Yeezy QNTM BSKTBLYeezy Quantum Basketball

Very few sneakers in the history of this industry got an entrance as grand as that of the Yeezy Quantum Basketball! And we get it. New silhouette, new colorway, and the first-ever court-appropriate Yeezy.

So it seems like, once again in February 2021, the Yeezy Quantum Basketball will release for the retail price of $250. Giving you the chance to up your hoops performance around All-Stars Weekend 2021. Or a chance to make an easy $500+ profit!

Bold Blues Cover March 2021 Yeezys

Before we dive into the bold blue ocean of new Yeezys, it’s important to state the following: The new Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Pearl will drop sometime between February and March 2021. So, keep it locked to our blog for an exact release date, before you hang that release calendar on your wall.

Back to Blue YeezysYeezy 500 high Blue-min

It looks like Kanye’s into all shades of blue this year. In March 2021, the Yeezy 500 High will drop in “Frozen Blue” and a new Yeezy 700 will appear in “Bright Blue”.

The Yeezy 500 originally dropped back in 2018. And it wasn’t until 2019 that we got a “high” version of this silhouette. But so far we’ve only seen 2 similar colorways of the Yeezy 500 high, “Slate” and “Tyrian”. However, this will change in 2021, and Kanye is blessing us with a Frozen Blue version that will have all eyes on your feet!

Another Yeezy 700 V1

All of 2020’s Yeezy release dates haven’t passed yet, but more rumors regarding Adidas Yeezy‘s plans for next year continue to be confirmed. The latest?: The Yeezy 700 “Bright Blue” first seen in August. Built atop the identical sole unit of a previously-teased “Sun” iteration, the forthcoming pair features a vibrant blue upper overlaid with some panels from the silhouette’s inaugural colorway. While the arrangement’s backstory may surface as a release date nears, the jarring proposition suggests that the Yeezy imprint is never-not-experimenting. It’s too soon to tell, but Kanye West’s “dad shoe” maybe next in getting the Yeezy 350 treatment.

A Cream White 700 v22021 Yeezys 700 V2 Cream

If you’ve missed out on the iconic Yeezy 700 V2 Static, your chance to cop the next best thing is here. In March 2021 the Yeezy 700 V2 will drop in a classic, subtle, and elegant cream white colorway. The new version features light neutral shades, leather overlays covering a mesh base, an all-white midsole hugging the boost material, and the black rubber sole. The new Cream White Yeezy 700 v2 should retail for $300, and if you were lucky, you might be able to sell it for $600. Around the resale value of the OG Statics.

April 2021 Yeezy Releases

So far we have 1 Yeezy we assume is dropping in April. The perfect silhouette and colorway to kick off the warm season, the Yeezy 500 “Enflame”.

Although the name would suggest a rather bold and bright color, the new Yeezy 500 will actually come fully-dressed in a warm orange-coral tone. The retail price is the usual for a Yeezy 500, $200. And as for the reselling value, I think we’re looking at something similar to that of the Soft Vision.

What to Expect After AprilYeezy Boost 350 V2 What The 2021

Well, everything after April 2021 looks like a blur. No set release dates, nothing officially confirmed, but we’re used to that. New unexpected Yeezys pop out every season, and we never complain. If anything, this element of surprise is what kept the Adidas Yeezy line alive all these years.

For now, we know of 4 more Yeezy Boost 380 colorways: Sky Blue, Supcol, Earthly, and earthly Reflective. We also have the Yeezy 700 V3 “Kynite” which looks way too similar to the Arzareth, you might want to sleep on it. 

Another new Yeezy that will join the long line will be the Yeezy 451. After getting our first look at these alien-themed kicks through images from Kanye’s infamous Forbes interview. From what we know so far, it looks like these might actually drop in February and retail for $180.

However, the one pair we can’t wait to get a closer look at from 2021 Yeezys, would have to be the Yeezy 350 V2 “What The”.

What The Heck, Kanye?! What Happened? Why does it look like a recycled mess of unused Primeknit? But most importantly will it even release? Or Will it remain a sample of yet another unreleased Yeezy?

Regardless of how we feel about this hybrid colorway and its name, apparently inspired by Jumpman’s “What The” line, if it does release, it’ll probably resell for a good fortune. Just like most ugly-looking sneakers.

What to Cop from 2021 Yeezys?

If you’re into reselling, we’d probably stay away from Yeezy 380s. They barely flip for their retail price. We advise going after Yeezy 350 V2s, especially new unseen colorways like the “Ash Blue” and “What The”.

Another good cop would be the Yeezy 700 V2 Cream White, just because of how well it channels the one-of-a-kind Static.

However, if you’re into the game, the history, and style, copping any of Kanye’s sneakers would do you good. And keep in mind that’s not the whole lineup for 2021. Kanye’s plans change so randomly we can’t always keep up. So stay tuned for more info and more Yeezys as soon as more leaks are out.

But no matter what your intentions are, you won’t get a step further without a sneaker bot, a Cook Group membership, and some top-notch sneaker proxies.
