Update 12/12/2019

Since the Adidas Yeezy line is one of the industry’s biggest and most important pillars, it’s only normal that we get a huge bunch of Adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers every year. Now, since we’ve already shared our top picks for 2015, 2016, and 2017 it’s time we let you know our opinion on Yeezys from 2018 and 2019.

Follow Up 2017

Although we did vote the Adidas Yeezy Boost Zebra as one of our top kicks in 2017, there’s still more. In fact, 2017 was such a loaded year, it wouldn’t be logical not to love more Yeezys that released then. But which ones?

All-time Best Yeezys: Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 OG

2017 was the year Kanye boarded the dad-shoes trend train. Or was he the driver of that train?! Either way, that year we got the first batch of the iconic Yeezy 700 in its solid grey colorway. Like them or not, the Waverunners were game-changers. The first real big shoes by Kanye. Stylish, colorful, eccentric, and they feature BOOST! What more can you ask for? The only downfall for these is the $300 price tag. Which Kanye seems to be working on changing with the $200 Yeezy Boost 700 V3

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Semi Frozen Yellow

Towards the end of 2017, we got ourselves 2 new Yeezys that looked nothing like anything we’ve seen before. But the most unique, and rare at the time, was the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Semi Frozen Yellow. And let me tell you, if this release taught us anything, it’s that you cannot make it in this game unless you know someone, or are Friends & Family.

The ‘Yebras’ were the first Yellow-ish Yeezys we got. Of course, by the time we’re writing this we got a bunch of Yellow Yeezys but these were the OGs. They featured a Zebra pattern across the uppers, with dark grey lines contrasting the bold Yellow. When they first released, the Yebras were the most limited V2s ever. And although they probably lost that title for a Reflective Yeezy,  they’re still limited.

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint

On December 16th, 2017 the Yeezy Blue Tints made their debut. And while they might look a bit subtle or normal to you now, they weren’t 2 years ago. They were limited, uniquely blue, and were the last V2s we’d see in so long. So everyone wanted a pair. And so many sneakerheads joined the game at that time to get a hold of the pair signaling a possible end of the Yeezy 350 V2 era. We were WRONG! But it felt like the Red Octobers all again. They could’ve been actually until we realized Kanye and Adidas’ partnership was a long term one. The Blue tints resembled the Yebras in terms of silhouette, pattern, and material but they were a lot more chill and subtle featuring those icy-blue uppers. As for the retail price, it was the usual $220.

The Disastrous 2018

You might think we’re exaggerating when we call 2018 disastrous, but we’re not. You may not have noticed how bad it was, because you ain’t Kanye and Yeezys aren’t your babies. And maybe because you were too busy drooling over the long and rich Nike X Off-white releases. And TBH that was what 2018 was all about; Off-whites. And it wasn’t until December 2018 that we got a Yeezy worth the pain.

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Static Reflective

On December 26th, 2018 the first Yeezy Reflective arrived. It was limited, a V2 and it was SHINY. Although we also got a non-reflective version a day later, nothing could kill the hype of these. The silhouette remained unchanged. The medium height ankle collar,  the heel pull-tabs, the stitching across the uppers. But that day, we got our first look at the translucent side stripe replacing the SPLY-350 branding we knew for so long. And honestly other than this drop the only one worth mentioning from 2018 was the Yeezy 700 V2 static.

2019: What a YEAR!

Ok! So believe it or not, Yeezys made an impressive comeback in 2019. It was so huge we, for now, got 38 Yeezy releases!
But we don’t like them, all the same, do we? We can’t treat the Yeezy 500s the way we treat the 350s!

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black Reflective

The Reflective Yeezy trend kept the momentum going through 2019, but it’s the Black Yeezy that we liked the most. Up until these released, we hadn’t seen a black Yeezy in years. Except for the powerphase Yeezys which don’t really count. And the fact that there was a reflective version made them even more desirable. Regarding the features, well these were Black on Black sneakers, with a translucent side stripe, and boost soles. The heel tab that went missing from several Yeezy in 2091 was on the Black reflectives. And similarly to the Yeezy Breds and Pirate Black, it featured bold red stitching. For shoes that were so limited and so shiny paying the $220 retail price felt like a ride in the park. Especially when you knew you could flip them for over $1,000!

Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 Alien

So, December 2019 was the month we got the LONG OVER-DUE V3. However, something happened last-minute and the Yeezy Boost 350 V3 is now known as the 380. The first colorway to drop of this model was the Alien, and the name fits perfectly. This  Yeezy Boost 380 Alien features a brand new Primeknit pattern on its upper and lacks the traditional lateral side strip. An additional feature and our favorite is the upgraded thicker Boost midsole and engineered outsole grip complete the design.

The Aliens dropped the first time exclusively on YeezySupply in November, but we’re now in the middle of the wider release happening TODAY!

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yecheil Reflective

This pair isn’t the best because of anything it offers by itself, but rather for the whole pack, it’s introducing us to. Not too long ago, TheYeezyMafia brought us the big news, a Triple pack of Yeezys was dropping in December and January 2020. The starting colorway would be Yeezreel Dropping on December 14th, 2019, followed by the Yeezy Yecheil on December 20th. The third iteration would be the Yeezy Yeshaya but we have to wait until January to get a hold of these. The inspiration for this biblical pack was drawn from Kanye’s religious transformation and his out-of-this-world Sunday Services. And as for the names, well they’re drawn from Hebrew. As far as we know now, the 3 new Yeezys are all dropping in a reflective and non-reflective version. And it goes without saying that the reflective versions will be worth a lot more!

What’s new about the Yeezy Yecheil and the whole trio are the unique and colorful uppers. And after a long year of monotonal sneakers, we are more than happy to see Yeezys getting a makeover. But with all this change and freshness, the retail price remains the same, $220. And we’re very appreciative of this number since we got news that Yeezy retail prices could go up after their production moves to the U.S.

REVIEW #1: Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Turtledove

The Stats:Yeezy boost 350 Turtledove

    • Colorway: Blue Grey-White
    • Release Date: June 27, 2015
    • Original Price: $200
    • Average Resell Value: $1,270

How we rank it:

      1. Design: 9 out of 10
        The design elements of this shoe are stellar: the uppers feature a unique and remained one of its kind until another very similar Yeezy released a while later. The only negative aspect of this shoe is that it has some sizing issues, so that is why it lost a point on its rating. Most fans reported that it was not true-to-size and you needed to order as much as a full size larger.
      2. Quality: 10 out of 10
        As with Most Yeezy boost sneakers, these shoe’s patented primeknit material is of the highest quality, which is likely why the shoe has been in such high demand. Its rope laces are impeccable- thick and sturdy. The Boost technology finishes out the design for a rating of a full 10/10.
      3. Price: 10 out of 10
        The Yeezy Boost 350 “Turtledove” has proven itself as one of the most valuable in the entire Adidas product line. It garnered the highest resell price of any Boost 350 last year (averaging a resell value of $2,218when it dropped). This resale value is a 1,009% increase from its original sale price, which will leave any Yeezy fan happy with their purchase.
      4. Rarity: 9 out of 10
        Because the “Turtledove” has commanded such a high resell price, it is one shoe that is harder to find on the market right now.  So, we’ve given it a 9 out of 10.

“TURTLE DOVE” FINAL RATING: 9.5 out of 10


REVIEW #2: Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ZebraYeezy Zebra

The Stats:

  • Colorway: White/Core Black/Red
  • Release Date: February 25, 2017
  • Retail Price: $220
  • Average resell value: $330

How we rank it:

  1. Design: 7 out of 10
    The “Zebra” Boost 350 v2’s have one of the most unique designs of all the Yeezy’s. Its white and black stripes give it a crisp and eye-catching silhouette. It has been awarded a re-release later this year, so it can’t be denied that its popularity is rooted in its design. The biggest flaw of this shoe is its translucent gel sole, which features a white-to-yellow color transition on the back. Some Yeezy fans weren’t happy with this look since it makes the shoe look slightly less than impeccable. Hopefully, the new release will omit this flaw.
  2. Quality: 8 out of 10
    This Boost’s patented primeknit upper is excellent quality, very breathable and super lightweight. Its white rope laces are very well-made and its bottom sole has a fantastic ribbing feature. We took two points off in quality because of this Boost’s uncomfortable toe. Many Yeezy fans have asked for Adidas to improve this feature. Hopefully, Adidas will listen and give fans what they are asking for with the second release in 2017.
  3. Price: 9 out of 10
    These “Zebra” Yeezy’s retailed at an original price of $220. According to , the average resell value of this shoe was at $1,423. This makes for a 547% increase in the price, giving this a 9/10 on our “price” rating.
  4. Rarity: 10 out of 10
    These are very rare and definitely, one of the most limited Yeezy’s ever made. It has been incredibly hard for fans to get their hands on a pair of these. So, for that reason, it gets a 10 out of 10.

“ZEBRA” FINAL RATING: 8.5 out of 10


REVIEW #3: Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 “Light Brown”

Yeezy boost 750 Light BrownThe Stats:

  • Colorway: Carbon White-Light Brown
  • Release Date: 02/14/2015
  • Original Price: $350
  • Average Resell Value: $1,500

How we rank it:

  1. Design: 6 out of 10
    At first glance, these sneakers are a dream. The earthy monochromatic color and distinct, soft suede look fantastic. However, its design could improve in some areas. This shoe is a bit difficult to take on and off because of the strap and zipper on the size. Many Yeezy fans have also reported that the sizing is too small. For that reason, this pair gets a 6 out of 10 on design.
  2. Quality: 8 out of 10
    This 750 has some high-quality elements, such as its premium, super soft suede material. However, it has received complaints regarding its bulky side zipper, which many say is prone to easy breakage. For that reason, it gets a 7 out of 10 on quality.
  3. Price: 9 out of 10
    This Yeezy Boost 750 has had an average resell value of $3,034. This is a whopping $767% increase from its original sale price of $350. Its original sale price is higher than some of the other Boosts that have been on the market, but it continues to be in demand. So, this Boost 750 gets a 9 out of 10.
  4. Rarity: 9 out of 10
    This pair was Kanye’s first sneaker with Adidas and a very limited release. It was an early model, so it ranks high on rarity.

“LIGHT BROWN” FINAL RATING: 8 out of 10


REVIEW #4: Adidas Yeezy Boost Moonrock

Yeezy Moonrock

The Stats:

  • Colorway: Moonrock-Agate Grey
  • Release Date: 11/14/2015
  • Original Price: $200
  • Average Resell Value: $850

How we rank it:

  1. Design: 9 out of 10
    The best aspect of this Boost is that its design will work with just about any clothing style. At first glance, it appears to be a monochromatic colorway.
    A more detailed look shows its beautifully speckled grey and neutral hues (hence, the name “moonrock).
  2. Quality: 9 out of 10
    This 350’s patented primeknit material puts it at the top of the list. Its rope laces and detailed suede inserts are of the highest of quality.
    The only complaint about this model is that its insoles can become loose over time, causing it to separate. For this reason, we took off a point on quality.
  3. Price: 7 out of 10
    These “Moonrock” shoes had an original price tag of $200 and, according to , an average resell value of $1,535. This resale value is a 668% increase from its original sale price.
    For all these reasons, it makes for a great buy. However, once we compare it with some of the other successful models, it doesn’t reach quite as high as hoped.
  4. Rarity: 7 out of 10
    These Boost 350’s are rare, but not super rare.

“MOONROCK” FINAL RATING: 8.25 out of 10


 REVIEW #5: Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Beluga

The Stats:Yeezy Boost beluga1.0

  • Colorway: Grey/Beluga/Solar Red
  • Release Date: 09/24/2016
  • Original Price: $200
  • Average Resell Value: $690

How we rank it:

  1. Design: 9 out of 10
    The Belugas, one of the best Yeezys ever, features a gray, earthy colorway and accented with a solar red stripe that reads “350 SPLY.” Adidas and West created this second version of the “Beluga” and improved every element from the first model. Its sleek new design is why we give it a 9 out of 10.
  2. Quality: 9 out of 10
    This Boost model has received all positive reviews on its quality. Its primeknit mesh construction and Boost technology are what give it an (almost-perfect) “9” rating.
  3. Price: 5 out of 10
    The original price tag on these Yeezy’s was $200. According to the average resell value of the “Beluga” shoes was $721, a 261% increase from its original price. By comparison of almost any shoe on the market, this is fantastic. But, competition is steep within the Yeezy lineup, so it doesn’t fare as well in our ratings.
  4. Rarity: 6 out of 10
    The 2016 release of the “Beluga” left many Yeezy fans fighting for a pair of their own. It was very limited in quantity, but not as limited or rare as some of the other Boost models.

“BELUGA” FINAL RANKING:  7.25 out of 10
