Moving on to the star of the show, the Yeezy BRED V2 of 2017 (and 2020!). It featured the trademark features of the V2s. They removed the colorful side stripe and replaced it with a stitched SPLY-350 on a completely black canvas. It also had a pull tab at the heel with the tiniest bit of contrasting red! Many people describe this combination as one of the most appealing colorways, both cool and edgy at the same time.

The 2020 restock featured both raffles releases and online retailers like Yeezy Supply, Footsites, and even Shopify sites. So, it was a very big release – hence the number of pairs sold. However, it’s still doing pretty well on resale


Yeezy BRED V2 - AIO BotIn short, if there’s one thing we can learn from the Yeezy BRED V2 is: never miss out on a Yeezy release. Because, although the hype is a hit or miss; when it comes to resale, there’s always money. Especially when it’s a 350. And, although the resale won’t be as big as it used to be in 2016; now you can cop in bulk! So, it doesn’t matter how many sneakers Kanye drops. You’ll still have the chance to cop a huge chunk of the stock to resell.

So, take it as a rule and cop every Yeezy 350 release out there! Something you can practice with all the upcoming December Yeezys. Or, if your pockets are already emptied out, you can try your luck with 2022 Yeezys. Just make sure you keep it locked on our blog for all the updates on upcoming sneaker releases and more!
