Nike Air Yeezy Adidas Yeezy Boost

What’s the difference between the cult-status kicks?

Some sneaker fans are all about the Nike Yeezy, while for others the Adidas Yeezy boost line wins, hands down. Both Kanye’s sneaker collaborations have produced cult-status shoes. And you can see Kanye’s art all over these shoes. The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 was 2015’s ‘Shoe of the Year’ at the New York Footwear News Achievement Awards.  And Nike Air Yeezy II ‘Red October’ is one of the most sought after sneakers in history. In this post, we explore the aesthetic differences between Nike Air Yeezy and Adidas Yeezy Boost and the costs associated with the iconic kicks.

Nike Air Yeezy

Kanye first revealed the Nike Air Yeezys in all black suede at the 2008 Grammy Awards. After a long sampling process involving several features and colorways. Finally, a trio of colors – Zen Grey, Blink and Net – released in April, May, and June of 2009. Each colorway of the high-top basketball-inspired shoe had the same structure. Perforated uppers and mid-strap with different detailing such as glow-in-the-dark soles and printing on the strap. The first generation Nike Air Yeezy retailed at $215 USD and flew off the shelves instantly.

The same way many sneakerheads ended up with a big fat L then, you might have too! And that’s ok. Really. Back then there weren’t many sneaker bots to help you cop. Luckily, this has changed now, and you can always run one of the top sneaker bots in the game to get all the Yeezys you ever wanted.

However, if it’s the Nike Air Yeezy sneakers you’re hooked on, then you only have one option. For past releases that you missed and still want to so bad, reselling platforms are here for ya! You might end up paying 620% over retail price, but you can’t put a price on love. Can you?!

Nike Air Yeezy II

In June 2012, Nike released its Air Yeezy II. 5000 pairs of each colorway dropped, retailing at $250. The color options were Black/ Solar Red and Pure Platinum. And then, as a shock drop, the Nike Air Yeezy II Red Octobers released in Feb. 2014. The infamous and iconic Red Octobers sold out within 11 minutes.

Prices of all the Nike Air Yeezy 2s quickly inflated to over $4000 on sites such as eBay, with a pair of ‘Red Octobers’ in a UK men’s size 8 driving bids as high as $16 million USD. Today you can find a UK men’s size 10 for sale on ebay for $7,975 USD. It remains one of the most expensive sneakers in history.

The silhouette of the second generation Nike Air Yeezy was toned down to create a more casual vibe. The top was shorter and slimmer for a sleeker look. Egyptian inspired styling elements included the god Horus on the tongue and hieroglyphics spelling out YZY under the strap. In addition to obelisk-shaped aglets at the end of each lace. Reptilian features included molding protruding from the heel counter and a snakeskin pattern on the back quarters.

After leaving Nike due to a dispute over royalties, Kanye’s next collaboration delivered the adidas Yeezy Boost 750 in February 2015. A limited number were released in flagship stores and a week later the 750 was made available through a wider range of retailers. The shoe was a departure from the Nike Yeezy, with the high-top featuring a zipper and mid-foot strap on top of an off-white Boost sole. Colors included black, brown and lavender; the upper a luxurious suede. Though adidas won’t release production figures, according to solecollector.com rumours put the number of black adidas Yeezy 750 Boosts at around 5,000. The shoe, retailing at $350, sold out within 10 minutes.

First released in Turtledove in June 2015, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 was very different again – far more traditional and minimalistic. A low-rise lightweight everyday sneaker, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 was similar to Nike Roshe Run. The uppers were, in fact, a one-piece primeknit. The shoe featured one visible line of stitching on the front, canvas detailing on the heel, black YZY detailing on the isoles and Adidas boost technology in the rubber sole. The retail price of 350s was $200 and Adidas Yeezy sneakers had a bit of a higher stock. So the $200 sneakers released at a range of stores including Finishline, footlocker, Jimmy Jazz, City Gear, and End Clothing. The Pirate Black colorway followed Turtle Dove in August 2015, with Moonrock released three months later.

Nike VS. Adidas Yeezys– the story so far

As with all Kanye’s Nike and Adidas Yeezy releases, runs have been minimal with far more disappointed sneakerheads than happy ones. Though Kanye tweeted that Adidas would make a million Yeezy’s in 2015, Sneakerheads are always desperate to get their hands on a pair. (It’s clear the only surefire way to cop a pair is using a sneaker bot that does the hard work for you). So what do you think about Nike Yeezy vs Adidas Yeezy? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
