The Yeezy Zebra is dropping yet again this upcoming month. Of all the 350 V2s, one would say the Zebra colorway is the wildest. The black and white upper with the pop of red in the SPLY-350 stripe is sure unique.
Others may disagree and say that the ‘Wild Award’ goes to the Semi Frozen Yellow (aka Yebra), which will probably drop in December 2018. But it’s basically the Zebra in highlight yellow! I mean, how much of a hype beast do you have to be to rock highlighter yellow shoes?

There are several different reasons why you’d want to cop the Yeezy Zebra this time around. First of all, you don’t want to pay resale prices to get it. Right now, the average sales price for the Yeezy Zebra is $500+ (StockX).
Let’s say you want a Yeezy and you want this one in specific because it’s not too common, unlike the mass-produced Triple Whites. You’re not going to pay over retail price to get it. You’re too smart for that. And while we’re on that note, according to the Yeezy Mafia, the stock numbers on this releases is nowhere near as much as the Cream Whites.
Despite its slow year, the future of the Yeezy line seems to be expanding and evolving quickly. This could be your last chance to ever try to cop the Yeezy Zebra at retail. Kanye looks just about ready to introduce new silhouettes to the world, to keep Yeezys from dying. So if you’re a fan of these ones, and want to add it to your collection, you don’t want to miss your chance again.
Release Date: Friday, November 9th, 2018
Retail Price: $220 USD
Like most recent hyped drops, the wild Yeezy Zebra will drop on a Friday instead of Saturday. This drop will be shortly followed by the Sesame colorway which is set to drop on Friday, November 23rd, 2018.
It wasn’t long ago since we found out that Adidas is collaborating with the award-winning HBO series Game of Thrones (GoT). Now, like winter, the final season of GoT is coming. And what better way to celebrate it than to release GoT-themed UltraBoosts! Thanks to sneaker leakers, we have close-ups of two GoT UltraBoosts, Stark White and Fire and Blood.
The House Targaryen GoT UltraBoosts got some new pictures over the weekend. Thanks to @solebyjc and @yankeekicks we now have a more detailed look at the pairs.
The cleanest of the two, dubbed “Stark White” is the Daenerys Targaryen inspired UltraBoost. White all around PrimeKnit upper with silver stripes, it comes in a colorway that pays tribute to her silver head of hair. It sits atop a white Boost and outer sole. Furthermore, leakers say that these come in women’s sizing only.
The name of the colorway “Stark White” is a funny reference to the characters from House Stark. However, it has little to no relation to Daenerys. Of course, besides the fact that her brother Rhaegar loved Lyanna Stark and had a son, Jon Snow. Which of course would mean that he is, of course, the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Not the silver-haired Mother of Dragons. Yes, that’s facts.
In the picture is the GoT X Johnnie Walker White Walker-themed wrapping just for perks.
The white Mother of Dragons shoe cannot come without its greatest weapons, the dragons! Colored in an ombre pattern from black at the heel and color then going brighter red then yellow-ish at the toe, the House Targaryen Dragons literally scream fire. But the best part of these images is the details.
On both the “Stak White” and “Fire and Blood” pairs, the ankle tab reads the House Targaryen words, “Fire and Blood.” The aglets, which is the plastic or metal at the tip of the shoelaces, read “House” and “Targaryen.”
Finally, the shoes cannot be complete without custom GoT-themed insoles and the House Targaryen emblem on the inner tongue tab.
The GoT UltraBoosts are scheduled to drop sometimes in 2019. In addition to the House Targaryen UltraBoosts, the drop is to include sneakers for House Stark, House Lannister, Night’s Watch, and the White Walkers.
As of this year, the NBA has removed all color restrictions on footwear. Now players can wear any color they want on the court. However, they might not be able to wear the Yeezy basketball shoes.
Although players don’t have to wear matching shoes with their team’s uniforms, there’s still a process of approval for new sneakers. Unfortunately, it looks like Kanye’s first ever basketball shoes are not accepted.
The first ever Yeezy basketball shoes are facing a potential ban from the courts during the upcoming NBA season. The reason behind the ban is that there is just too much 3M material on the shoe. And that it will be distracting to fans at the arena and viewers at home.
The league, however, still hasn’t reviewed the shoes in person. But the flashing 3M in the pictures makes it most likely bannable. If Kanye makes a new version of the shoe without 3M maybe it’ll be accepted. So it’s not surprising if the Adidas players receive a different NBA-approved version of the Yeezy basketball shoes.

We all know what happened when the NBA banned the Chicago Bulls black and red Nike Air Jordan 1s in 1985. Nike took advantage of that one NBA ban and today, it’s one of the most sought-after sneakers.
In a post, Kanye said that these new Yeezy basketball shoes have been in development for over three years. Furthermore, there have been almost 300 samples of this shoe made.
So what a bummer it must be, after all that hard work, for the shoe to be banned from the very thing it was created for. However, there’s still a chance they can make it during the last half of the season if they get approved by December.
The hard work put into this sneaker would really make it a rare one.
The Yeezy basketball shoes are expected to releases in 2019. And if you’re wondering how to cop, read our Apprentice 666 Guide to Copping Yeezys Manually Online.
Scribbled on Ye’s calendar is a whole lot more of them throwback drops. With the second release of the Cream Whites and the third of the Wave Runners, Kanye is letting us know he’s not done yet! The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 is dropping again in both Zebra and Yebra colorways. What does this all mean for the Yeezy line?
When the Zebras first dropped, they were fire. They were so exclusive and people wanted them so bad that resale shot up to $1,500. However, they dropped again.
Well, the people who paid high resale prices weren’t too happy. Neither were the resellers. To top it all off, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra is dropping for the third time.
Resellers are definitely shook! They still haven’t sold their last pairs and now they’re probably scrambling to make ends meet.
One of the rarest Yeezys to date will no longer be so rare. Too bad to all the hustlers holding on to their pairs of McYeezy McDonalds 350s.
It’s true that Yeezy 350 prices go up with time, but these re-releases do nothing to help. Especially since the stock level is said to be increasing with upcoming releases.
Kanye West wants to make Yeezys attainable for everyone, that they are even sitting on shelves. Maybe this is all part of his plan to run for office in 2024.
While this is subject to change, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2s are due to drop in December. The Zebra and Yebra colorways were first scheduled in October but got pushed back. So it won’t be a surprise if they get pushed back some more into 2019.
But before those, we have something dropping in November: the Sesame V2. Not only is the Yeezy Supply Kitchen starting to cater to a higher number of people, but it’s also experimenting with new flavors.
However, there are rumors about the one with the “Transparent Stripe” that it’s coming also in December. Will it be the final 350 V2 before we move on to a new era of Yeezys?
Amidst all this Yeezy crave, don’t forget about the Adidas Game of Thrones UltraBoosts!
For the first time in Yeezy history, Yeezys can be bought on shelves, or ordered online. You can cop them manually, without a bot, and at retail price. That is if you’re willing to pay $200. The Yeezy 500 Utility Black is the first Yeezy to ever sit on shelves. This makes us question whether or not Yeezy are actually dying. And has Yeezy reselling seen the end of it?
Kanye has long been waiting for the day Yeezys could be available for everyone. Leading this dream is the Yeezy 500 Utility Black which released on July 7th for $200. Despite selling out on Adidas websites, this shoe was still up for grabs on Yeezy Supply for days after the release You can still find more sizes on StockX. Although that’s not at the retail price, you won’t have to pay extra hundreds for your size.
People thought the Yeezy 350 V2 Blue Tints would be the last Yeezys worth copping and that Yeezys are dead. They didn’t expect that more 350 V2s would be dropping. However, even releases of 350 V2s couldn’t revive the Yeezy line, as seen with the Yeezy 350 V2 Butter.
After a long time of no Yeezy Boosts, the Butters were the first 350 V2s to drop in 2018. The Yeezy Butters should have been more profitable in terms of reselling. Especially since it slowly but surely sold out.
However, the fact that leaks of re-releases and increased stock level for upcoming Yeezys definitely hindered that possibility. Many resellers are left with boxes of deadstock Yeezy Butters that they may never have the chance to sell.
Should resellers forget about instant gratification when it comes to Yeezys? Is there really no more “quick big money” with this brand? Well, don’t feel hopeless, because the aftermarket is a volatile place.
We anticipate the new sneakers to come out from Kanye’s creative mind that will revive the brand. Perhaps a new silhouette like the Yeezy 700 V2 or V3 may give Yeezy a boost. #pun
We’ve waited long enough for this collection to release. In fact, you could be expecting a child and received it before the Adidas x Dragon Ball Z sneakers drop. But the wait is nearly over now. This month, we’re getting two of eight sneakers that are releasing in honor of the Dragon Ball Z adventures.
One of the main reasons these shoes are dropping is probably because three DBZ movies are supposed to come out this year. According to Forbes, two events will take place in which the three movies will screen. The first movie is Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan, and it’ll show on September 15 and 17. The second and third movies, Dragon Ball Z: Bardock – The Father of Goku and Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, will screen on both November 3 and 5.
We think those are interesting dates considering two shoes are to drop in Septemeber and two more in November. As preparation for the movies, two pairs dropping in August. They are the Adidas X Dragon Ball Z ZX500 RM Goku and the Yung-1 Frieza.
Both Goku and Frieza’s shoes are remakes of older silhouettes from the 80s and 90s. The Yung-1 is a reworked pair of an old-school running shoe called the “Falcon Dorf” and the ZX500 will be coming back this time around with Boost in the sole.
For Goku’s ZX500 RM, features on the shoe are very detailed to the last bit. There’s even Goku’s yellow Flying Nimbus on the front of the shoe and his Goku symbol on the heel tab.
Frieza’s menacing silhouette is cold. Resembling his character, the Yung-1 is dressed in white and purple with hints of pink. Leather, mesh, rubber, and more material will comprise the shoe.
Both sneakers include a Dragon Ball Z insoles and may drop alongside collectible figurines. The release date is not yet clear, but keep your eyes open for any possible day this month could be the day. Finally, they may both retail for $150.
Inspired by the HBO fantasy TV series, Adidas is releasing a GoT-themed collection. With the next (and final) season of the series is due next year, winter couldn’t come any quicker. The Adidas Game of Thrones UltraBoosts collection drops sometime in 2019.
According to the 9.5/10 IMDb rating, one can tell that Game of Thrones is a globally adored series. With ratings that high, Adidas knew it would be stupid not to feed off that fame. This is pretty much like they’re doing with the Dragon Ball Z collection, but better.
Thanks to the Yeezy Mafia, and their detailed mockups, we have six UltraBoosts coming our way. Hopefully, we’ll finally know what it’ll feel like now that Winter is Coming. In the collection are the Houses of Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen, and three more UltraBoosts representing the Night’s Watch, White Walkers, and Dany’s dragons. Ugh, such anticipation for the show to air in 2019 and the sneakers to release.
The House Stark UltraBoost sports Wolf Grey uppers (like the Stark Direwolves), black accents, black Boost outsoles and is complete with “Winter is Coming” tag on the heel.

House Lannister of King’s Landing get’s the royal treatment with gold accents on the upper. The red color is unmistakably that of the Lannisters and as their sigil is a lion, the heel tag reads, “Hear Me Roar.”

Known for having silver hair, the House Targaryen UltraBoost is white with silver details all over and withing. The shoe is completed with a heel tag that reads, “Fire and Blood.”

It would be an insult to the Mother of Dragons if we didn’t see her “little” ones get a pair of UltraBoosts. Smoked out black for the most part, the shoe features a firey PrimeKnit. Belonging to House Targaryen, the heel tag also reads, “Fire and Blood.”

Somehow you can imagine a brother of the Night’s Watch wearing these UltraBoosts, with a white Boost, toe, and heel as if covered in snow. In addition, the black speckled upper represents the night sky.

Finally, the ice cold UltraBoosts with icy blue accents to represent the peircing eyes of a White Walker, and the ominous “Winter Is Here” tag.

What a way to tribute such a crowd-pleasing show. Fans are both excited yet have that bittersweet feeling that their favorite series will end. But that’s okay because we’ll have more time to catch up on other shows. Speaking of tributes, check out Pharrell Williams’ ode to the motherland, Africa, in his NMD Solar Pack.
A mashup between “Happy” singer, Pharrell Williams, and behemoth sneaker brand, Adidas, gives birth to an unforgettable line called the PW Adidas NMD Hu. The latest PW Adidas NMD Hu to release will be the Afro Pack which recently had a name change to the Solar Pack, as per the Yeezy Mafia.
With a Chinese pack and a Holi pack out of the way, the next pack draws inspiration from the motherland, Africa. Indeed, after making sneakers to commemorate nationalities around the world it’s only foreseeable that Williams designs an African inspired pack to honor his roots. However, now the Afro Pack is renamed to Solar Pack and there’s no reason why.

Two of three upcoming colorways appear in the Yeezy Mafia’s post, one teal/grey pair and a yellow/black pair. Besides the unique and wild choice of colors for the upper, details on the shoes suggest references to African heritage.
For instance, the teal and grey upper has the writing, “Milele Mbele.” Some people say means Forever in Swahili, while others are saying it means Go Forward. Whatever the case, both sound like something you can find on any PW Adidas NMD Hu.
The yellow and black pair reads “Empower and Inspire.” Finally is the last colorway, which was thought to be red. However, the Yeezy Mafia says that the red pair has been changed to pink. This pink pair will read “Mother Land.”
These pairs will be complete with a trail outsole, like the PW Adidas NMD Hu Trail Holi and China Pack. The PW Adidas NMD Hu Trail Afro/Solar Pack will drop will on Adidas online. Additionally, it will release at select Adidas retailers. The drop date is on August 18th, 2018 and it’s presumably retailing for $250.
But, speaking of a Solar Pack, Pharrell Willams has a shoe in the making which we’ve seen before in this article. The bold PW Adidas Solar HU Glide ST is an all-new silhouette and not your regular PW Adidas NMD Hu. It comes with a PrimeKnit-like upper and hits of bold colors like red, blue, green, yellow, orange, and so on. Furthermore, it all rests atop a Boost midsole.
A week ago we told you that your Yeezys will be delayed till fall. But the wait is over, you don’t need to guess when your favorite Yeezys will be released. The Yeezy Mafia just hit us up with the new Yeezy line up for Fall/Winter 2018 and gave us a rough estimate of when to expect our kicks.
Allegedly, these Yeezys got pushed back due to the increase in production numbers. The Cream Whites were meant to drop in July and the Sesame in August. However, dates got changed, and it’s said that Yeezy Supply will be opening up warehouses in Europe and Asia. That may explain the sudden production level increase. Whatever the case, Kanye’s dream to make Yeezys available for everyone could be coming true.
In addition to the new Yeezy releases we’re expecting, last year’s Yeezy 350 V2s are getting a comeback. The Cream Whites and the OG Yeezy 700 WaveRunners, along with the Zebras and the Semi Frozen Yellows are coming back and with more force. In November, the Yeezy 500 will be dropping in the Salt colorway and a whole new colorway for the 700s will drop.
It’s great that sneakerheads can get a chance to cop the Yeezys they missed out on last year, but what we’re really hoping to see soon is more leaks about the Yeezy 700 V2. We imagine the next one to take the dad shoe trend into a more futuristic aesthetic.
Nevertheless, the Yeezy Mafia came through with this post. But most of you may be too busy drooling over the new Yeezy line up to notice that it says, “Subject to change,” on the top right corner. This means, prepare for these months, but don’t get confused over a last minute date change. All these heavy shoes will kill our bank accounts. That’s why copping more than one and selling the other for double will save your wallet.
In recent news, things get beefier than ever between artists Pusha T and Drake when Pusha T drops his latest diss track, “The Story of Adidon” along with a photo of Drake in blackface. But it may reveal some truth to the fate of Drake’s career.
Some background – For some time now, there have been ongoing rumors that Drake’s deal with Jordan Brand will be a thing of the past. The reason being that the artist needs more creative freedom than the brand is giving him. And since then, The Child’s been seen wearing Adidas more often.
The two have taken subliminal shots at each other through their music since 2011. But nothing out of proportion like Pusha T just did following the release of his DAYTONA album.
Pusha T’s song “Infrared” prompts Drake to quickly respond with “Duppy Freestyle” to which Pusha T responds with “The Story of Adidon,” which may have taken the rap battle to a whole new level. Things escalated too quickly.
“The Story of Adidon” throws shade at Drake’s family situation and his mixed cultural background. He even makes a (rather heartless) comment about the sickness of his friend, Shebib, who’s an OVO producer.
Most importantly though, is the mention of Adidon. In the lyrics, Pusha T claims that Drake is hiding a son named Adonis. And he makes remarks about the mother of Drake’s hidden baby. Bars that reveal this information allude to a possible Adidas deal.
We already anticipate that Drake will be moving his fashion line from Jordan Brand to Adidas in the near future. But with “The Story of Adidon,” it was confirmed. And the fact was locked tight in a clip from this interview Pusha T just had with The Breakfast Club, listen below:
So Drake’s Adidas brand will be called Adidon, a mix of his alleged son’s name, Adonis, and the brand name Adidas. If Drake indeed has a son and is waiting to drop his Adidas line in order to reveal it, then we anticipate that Drake will have to do a lot of fo damage control.
He already released a statement on his IG story regarding the blackface photograph but made no comment about the song’s lyrics. It’s only a matter of time until Push T receives a formal response, and we’re all waiting to hear it.
