Yeezy History Timeline

So, you guys want to know everything there is to know about Yeezys? Great. If you consider yourself to be a sneaker head, Yeezys are a worthwhile investment to add to your collection. First things first, let’s take a look at the four magical Yeezy flavors: Yeezy Boost 350, Yeezy Boost 350 v2, Yeezy Boost 750, & Yeezy Boost 950. The differences in each model are quite unique. The main thing to remember is the rarer the Yeezy, the higher the value.

Kanye West has introduced us to a world where running shoes are equal to fashion statements. Prime examples would be the Yeezy Boost 350 and the Yeezy Boost 350 v2 models. These sneakers were designed to be running shoes meant for everyday wear. Cop a pair and style on your friends the next time you go out for your morning run.

Let’s jump into the history behind the hype.

 

 

Kanye West

The man doesn’t call himself the Louis Vuitton Don for nothing. Before his foray with Nike and way before his successful collabs with Adidas, Kanye West joined forces with fashion titan Louis Vuitton. During “Post Graduation” (Yeezy’s third album), Kanye signed a deal with Louis Vuitton to release a line of The shoes were a huge hit. Fashion enthusiasts and fans worldwide accepted the sneakers as a piece of fashion history. They retailed at just below $1,000 and held a resell value of well over $20,000 a pair today.

In 2013 Kanye West severed ties with Nike in favor of a $10 million deal with Adidas. In return for signing, Adidas offered Kanye West full creative control over the direction of Yeezy sneakers and a percentage of all royalties. In an interview, Kanye was quoted saying:

“I. Am. Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation, in the flesh. I am Shakespeare, Walt Disney. Nike. Google.”

Taking such a formidable stance is no small feat, and thus far Mr. West has made good on his claim.

Being a fashion designer has always been a dream of Kanye’s. He is well versed in the arts and has a passion for designing clothes. Even before he began his ambitious journey to become a rapper and producer, he wanted to design clothes. As a starving artist, he would blow entire paychecks on Pelle Pelle jackets and Polo shirts. He has worked hard to enter the world of fashion and continues to make waves.

 

Intro to Yeezys

The Adidas Yeezy Boost was introduced in 2015 and hasn’t stopped selling since. These sneakers have become been so popular that new drops typically sell out in under a minute. The Adidas Yeezy shoes come in 4 styles – the Yeezy Boost 750, Yeezy Boost 350, Yeezy Boost 350 v2, and the Yeezy Boost 950.

The Yeezy Boost 750, the first Yeezy to ever drop from Adidas, was proudly inspired by an Australian shoe design. Kanye West had hopes of creating the sneakers of the future and referred to himself as “the most influential person in footwear.” They were modeled after Uggs and styled for Marty McFly. With style like that, it looks like the future is going to be pretty dope.

Yeezys are the most hype sneakers released across the world. People stay up all night at their computer screens and camp out in front of sneaker stores. People act like zombies for these shoes, and the craze is contagious.

The trend began in February 2015 when the first YeezyBoost 750 was released. Kim Kardashian tweeted about their success, and Kanye made history by basically breaking the internet.

NIKE YEEZY HISTORY

Air Yeezy (2009)

Zen Gray

Air Yeezy Zen Grey

The Nike Air Yeezy Zen Gray was the first sneaker that was made by Nike specifically for non-athletes. There’s a lot of detail in these kicks if you look hard enough. It has rigid Y’s covering the strap and toe box. Furthermore, they feature Air Jordan 3 midsoles, ‘Y’ lacelocks, and green glow in the dark soles. The Yeezy Zen Gray is pretty rare nowadays. There were only 3,000 pairs released to the world in April 2009.

Retail price: $215
Average resale price: $3,000
StockX price: $2,300
Flight Club price: $3,000
GOAT price:
$1,995

Design:

Minimal design placing emphasis on balance and subtlety. Gray tones vary throughout the shoe to create light gradiance.

Future Value:

The greys tend to fly below the radar of most sneakerheads. These could maintain their value or increase at a steady rate of 1.27% per year.

 

Nike Air Yeezy Black/Pink

Air Yeezy Black Pink

The Yeezy Black/Pink was one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2012. Yeezy himself wore these kicks during his “Watch the Throne” tour which only helped to boost the buzz surrounding these sneakers. The Black/Pink colorway was a fresh new look that had everyone excited in 2012.

Retail price: $215
Average resale price: $3,000
StockX price: $4,250
Flight Club price: $3,000
GOAT price:
$1,500

Design:

Suede upper with accented black patent leather stripe. The pink inside is vibrant and gives the shoe plenty of personality.

Future Value:

As one of the hottest shoes to drop from Nike and Kanye the “Blink” Air Yeezys could continue to show strong price growth.

 

Nike Air Yeezy Net/Tan

Air Yeezy Net Tan

The Nike Air Yeezy Net/Tan was only limited to two sizes (11 and 12). These kicks sported a tan upper, grey toe area, taupe strap (this was the only colorway that sported a smooth strap that was non-texture), and finally a glow-in-the-dark outsole.

Retail price: $215
Average resale price: $3,000
StockX price: $2,315
Flight Club price: $2,750
GOAT price:
$1,900

Design:

Breathable toebox and leather upper, suede accent on the toe. The body is a smooth tan with cool pink insides.

Future Value:

The minimal design of the Net/Tan has gained more attention than the Zen Greys and we can expect this sneaker to gain more attention as Kanye rises in fame.

 


 

Air Yeezy II (2012-2014)

Black/Solar Red

Air Yeezy 2 Black Solar Red

The Nike Air Yeezy II Black/Solar Red was one of the most highly anticipated drops of its time and was extremely limited from the moment it was released. The Yeezy II Black/Solar Red featured a contrasting Solar Red inner liner, tonal branding, and a glow-in-the dark outsole.

Retail price: $245
Average resale price: $5,000
StockX price: $4,750
Flight Club price: $5,000
GOAT price:
$4,305

Design:

The first release of Kanye West’s revisioned Air Yeezy featured an aquatic inspiration. Side panels layered with fish-scale and fins on the heel make this shoe truly unique.

Future Value:

The innovation that went into this design make it inspirational. The Air Yeezy II is legendary and will continue to grow in popularity.

 

Nike Air Yeezy II Pure Platinum

Air Yeezy 2 Pure Platinum

The most prominent difference between The YeezyII Pure Platinum and the original Yeezy’s are the hard ridges that run along the back of the shoe. There’s also a bit of an ancient Egyptian vibe with the logo resembling that of the mythical God Horus. The YeezyII Pure Platinum is made up of suede, snake skin leather, and nylon mesh, while the tongue is comprised of performance torch fabric. And of course, we can’t forget about the glow in the dark soles.

Retail price: $245
Average resale price: $3,750
StockX price: $3,215
Flight Club price: $3,750
GOAT price:
$3,250

Design:

After South Park called Kanye a “gay fish” he took the idea and ran. His pure platinum Air YeezyII takes fish inspiration to the next level. The scales are a prominent part of the side panels and the fins glow in the dark. The man is a genius.

Future Value:

After the South Park controversy and referring to himself as a genius these sneakers went viral. We can expect them to continue to earn collectors a modest return.

 

Nike Air Yeezy II Red October

Air Yeezy 2 Red October

The Nike Air YeezyII Red October was one of the most hyped sneakers in Yeezy history. People went wild when pictures began to surface on the internet. Its late release date (several months late in fact) led to a buying frenzy when these kicks finally dropped. The Nike Air Yeezy II Red October sported a monochrome style of red which blended well with the gold aglets on the laces.

Retail price: $245
Average resale price: $7,500
StockX price: $4,500
Flight Club price: $7,500
GOAT price:
$10,000

Design:

The fins have been maintained on the heel, but the scales have been replaced with ridges. The bright red is eye-catching and the gold lace-tips are beautiful.

Future Value:

The Red Octobers were the cause of much uproar and controversy. Nike repeatedly pushed the release date back and in the end drove sales and hype sky-high. It is rumored that Nike’s delay in releasing the Red Octobers was a cause of Kanye West ending their partnership. Nevertheless, they are a part of Kanye’s legacy as a designer and stand as a staple in the Yeezy roster.

Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black (1.0 & 2.0)

adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black

The name “Pirate Black” is very fitting for this shoe. After all, there are so many counterfeit copies out there that it can be hard to tell the difference between a legit and fake pair (unless you know what to look for). These kicks are dressed up in a black Primeknit upper with the rest of the shoe sharing a similar colorway. The only contrast is the red stretch detailing on the heel tab.

General Info

As hardcore Yeezy enthusiasts, we’ve followed every YeezyRelease since the beginning! However, we’ve always wondered what the phrase “SPLY” meant. Why did Kanye put that on his sneakers instead of his name or something else?

Believe it or not, the SPLY-350 has a very special meaning (according to internet legend.) It stands for “Saint Pablo Loves You.” Which makes sense considering Kanye’s clothing line features regular references to Pablo plus his latest album is called “The Life of Pablo”.

If you’re wondering how many Yeezys have been released to date, we estimate that roughly 280,000 pairs are in circulation. The YeezyBoosts have been known to release in runs of around 40,000 at a time (according to an interview with Kanye West). Multiply that by seven releases, and we can guess 280,000 pairs. When you take scarcity of prior releases into consideration and re-releases into account, we can comfortably round this number to a figure close to 300,000 pairs worldwide. It’s no wonder these sneakers sell out in minutes.
