Find out exactly where you can buy the Adidas x Yeezy sneaker collaboration.
There is no doubt that the Adidas Yeezy Boost is one of the coolest statement sneakers on the market. So, it's no surprise that the Internet went crazy when pictures surfaced online of the upcoming sneaker design. The next collaboration from the two powerhouses sees an iteration that is an improved colourway: glow-in-the-dark.
It was first teased in 2018 but it seems that 2019 may be the year it becomes a reality. The new shoe stays true to the original design concept of knitted panels and transparent mesh stripes. In normal lighting, all you see is a fluorescent green shade. But as the lights dim, the sole begins to radiate a lime green.
Fans have been speculating that the glow-in-the-dark colourway will only be made available exclusive to kids, but there is no truth to this rumour at the moment.
The very first collaboration between Yeezy and sportswear giant Adidas was first conceptualised in 2013, but the first sneaker wasn't released until 2015. It has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon due to all the support and love from Kanye's fellow A-list celebrities. The result? Everyone wanted a pair of their own, despite the high price tag.
Australians can pick up a pair of Yeezy sneakers for $300 to $500 online at SSENSE, but if you want the Adidas x Yeezy collaboration, it's going to cost you a whole lot more. Usual pricing is upwards of $1,000 so you might want to start saving. Luckily, Farfetch offers a free returns policy so it makes you feel a little bit better about spending your cash.
When can you get your hands on the glow-in-the-dark Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2? The sneakers are dropping on 25 May. When these sneakers finally drop, we need to get our hands on a pair as soon as possible because we have a feeling they are going to be a sell-out.
