So in honor of the Yeezy madness that's been going on for what feels like a solid two years now, this is what I think about the color ways they've released so far. A few little tips to anyone looking to buy: never give up, and on the most recent Yeezys, size up. All the space behind your heel is pratically unreachable by your foot, so you'll need some room. Anyways, these are my opinions on the Yeezy 350 color ways, I was going to do a whole Yeezy designed post going from Nike, to Yeezy supply, to Louis Vuitton, but that'll have to wait because it will honestly take me quite some time. In honor of the blue tints and everything else Adidas has given us, here's my rank.
10: sEMI FROZEN
Okay, I know this is just my opinion, and most people wont respect it. But these are the most trash Yeezy's I've ever seen. I have high hopes, I saw that sample and my heart beat fast. Then they threw an unnecessary gum bottom on them. Why? It didn't need it. They would have been beautiful clear. I'm all for gum buttoms, they make most shoes... but that brown tone mixing with the grey. Lost me. Let me down, I'm so disappointed. Kanye West, you broke my heart again.
9: CREAM WHITE
Honestly, did they even try? Whenever I see these shoes they just look like they belong in a hospital. They would have been 10th if I wasn't so personally attacked by the Semi Frozens. That's all I have to say about these boring, boring, sad nurse shoes.
I mean, they're black and they're red. Bred if you will. Probably the most common sneaker way color ever, I'm not mad at it. They're pretty. But they're black and red shoes. Can we at least get some speckles in there or something?
7: "Muted Green"
I liked the idea of these, when I saw the pictures I was in awe. Then I saw them in person I was like ehhh I don't know. I love the idea. I mean, Olive 9's are probably in my top 10 Jordan's list. So I guess that's where this missed the mark, it should have been more olive. Like, who chose this shade of green? Someone didn't want khaki, didn't want tan, didn't want olive they we're like "I don't know, let's just use the color of stomach bile." Still lands them at number 8, almost by default.
6: "Subtle orange"
These don't do it for me either, but they're better than the 350 Stomach Biles V2, so they're defaulting up here too. Wouldn't be mad if I had these, would wear them. Not my favorite. Did I even get the right picture? Are these any different then the olive ones? Whatever, that's they fault should have thrown us some damn variety. *Kanye Shrug*
5: Blue tint
I think my biggest thing with these is I just would never wear them. What tone is this? How blue is it? Is it just a white washed zebra dipped in blue? I still haven't seen them in person, and my boyfriend got them so I wont talk too much shit because I know he loves them. They're pretty shoes. But in my opinion, they look more like they should be in a glass case at a Nike event rather than on my feets. They just aren't it for me, but they are beautiful none the less. I wear too much navy for this shit.
4: Bright Red
This is how you fucking do black and red shoes. They're like infrared Yeezys. If you're going to hype over any all black Yeezys, choose these. They're the best. I'd take these in a heartbeat because you could wear them with practically everything and they're just sleek and pretty.
These are beautiful. Cannot deny it.Great shade of orange, and the mix with they greyish color is amazing. I'll always love them. The details in the bottom with the orange flecks, like why couldn't they do that with some of the black ones or white ones to give them more pizazz? It's like they used up all their creative energies in the beginning of this Yeezy game and now they're just giving us throwaways.
2. Beluga 2.0
I don't know wether these should be at 2 or 3, maybe I just put them at 2 because I'm biased because these are the only ones I have. But on top of that, I just think the overall tone of this shoe is a little bit nicer. It matches more, it has a little more depth. I'm not completely sold on the orangey grey on the first Beluga's. They're both beautiful. If they would have made them with this shade, with the orange stripe, I'd faint.
These are the shoes that in 15 years everyone's going to be telling their kids and friends that they had even though they never did. Don't you hate when people do that "Oh I had those when I was in Middle School", no you didn't bro let it go. They're beautiful. The shade of red can only be compared to Rihanna's first lipstick RiriWoo from Mac, remember that? I do I bought like 4 just in case, I didn't know she was going to release Uncensored at the time. Jokes on me. But yeah, these are shoes. This is what I'm talking about. All the way down to the peek-a-boo sole shit that's going on on the back heel. Amazing. Just try to out do this, Yeezy brand.
So there's that! I enjoyed writing this because well, I love sharing my opinions wether wanted or unwanted. Feel free to try to argue with me but, I don't know. I'd also love to make a guide to how to cop Yeezys, so I guess I'll save that for the next drop! Later guys.
