Sometimes you’re asleep all year only to wake up just for Yeezy releases. The Yeezy season has proven time and time again that it is worth the wait. While Kanye West is acting up lately, with his Slavery comments, we’re still stoked for the upcoming Yeezy releases during this summer and fall.
In 2018, we saw the Yeezy 500 in action. Of all the Yeezy releases, the Super Moon Yellow has a strange one. A well thought out marketing trick, the yellow-tinted Yeezy 500 dropped as part of a bundle. The bundle came with a hoodie and sweat shorts like Kim Kardashian wore in the paparazzi styled snapshots, which inspired the #YeezySeason6 Kim lookalike photos. Forking up $760 for the bundle was your only shot at getting the shoes.
Soon after, the Yeezy 500 Blush became available to only those who were at the 747 Warehouse St event, NBA All-Star Weekend. Event exclusive Yeezy releases suck. If you weren’t there, you’re only able to buy the shoes from StockX, and it was expensive. However, it eventually saw a restock on April 14 and today the Yeezy 500 Blush is almost at retail price on StockX.
JUNE YEEZY RELEASES
As of now, two Yeezys are reportedly dropping next month. First of all, the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow will release again and the date is Saturday, June 9 according to Yeezy Mafia.
Secondly, the Yeezy 350 V2 is coming back this summer that with the Butter colorway that may drop sometime in June.
JULY YEEZY RELEASES
While we just had the bright colorway of the Super Moon Yellow, we’re getting a dark Yeezy 500. It’s the first dark colored Yeezy 500 set to drop. It will release on Saturday, July 7.
Also, the Yeezy Mafia tell us to expect the Yeezy 350 V2 Cream Whites to make a comeback this July.
AUGUST YEEZY RELEASE
Another very hyped Yeezy is the 350 V2 in Sesame colorway which supposedly drop in August.
AUTUMN YEEZY RELEASES
Finally, we have a new silhouette, the Yeezy 700 V2 and it’s reportedly to drop in Autumn.
Seems like the Salt colorway is just a mockup for now, but if this dope color drops, it’s set to drop in October.
In conclusion, regardless of how you feel about Kanye, you still gotta love those shoes. Good luck copping this summer and fall!
The Yeezy Mafia take to the internet to continue sharing the news with their rumor thirsty sneakerhead followers. The latest Tweets show dates for two hype Yeezy 500 releases. Guys, it’s going to be hot this summer!
The two upcoming Adidas Yeezy 500 sneakers are the true contrast of one another. One is completely light colored while the other is all black. They both follow the same monochromic scheme that is relative to all Yeezys lately.
Back when it was called the Desert Rat, this particular colorway had a story of its own. Kanye cleverly used his loving wife, Kim Kardashian, to market his apparel line when the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow on foot. A bundle was sold on Yeezy Supply for a sweater, bike shorts, and the sneakers for $760. For the heavy price of $760, the average resale price of $400 does no justice to the resellers.
This colorway will drop on Saturday, June 9 for $200.
In contrast to its predecessor, the Yeezy 500 Utility Black has no fishy story. At least not an official one by Kanye and Yeezy Supply. However, the Yeezy Mafia did pull an April fool’s prank on gullible sneakerheads by posting that the shoe was up for sale for 12.345,000 euros. Luckily, fans were quick to catch on to the joke. And now they know how long to wait.
This somber colorway will drop on Saturday, July 7 for $200.
According to the Yeezy Mafia, we may be welcoming another two Yeezy 500 colorways in Fall 2018. The deep purple upper sitting on a gum sole is the Yeezy 500 “Ultraviolet” and the all-white “Salt” dropping in October.
Moreover, Kanye West’s back on Twitter, and he’s finally taking us into his lab. Recently shared several images of new colorways. One of those is an image of some brighter colored Yeezy 500s.
They definitely stick to the same purple-ish side of the Ultraviolets. They’re far better than the Yeezy slides, and we can’t wait for them to drop, along with some fresh 350 V2s dropping this year.

There are some days when you sit in silence and think to yourself, “Wow, Kanye West is such a genius mastermind artist and designer. Someday I want to be like him. He’s an inspiration to all!” Today is not one of those days. Why? Because those Yeezy Season 6 slides got all riled up like Joey:
Apparently, this isn’t the first time they’ve shown up on the internet. Remember when Kanye’s faithful wife, Kim Kardashian West, modeled for her husband’s line through a series of paparazzi-style photographs? In one of the pictures, you can spot her wearing the Yeezy Season 6 slides paired with Yeezy Season 6 apparel.
But back then they didn’t get any buzz like Yeezy sneakers effortlessly do. Especially since the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow was the center of attention and had influencers everywhere copycatting Kim.
The slides recently dropped (and quickly sold out) on Yeezy Supply web store and Brownsfashion.com, according to Hypebeast. They sold for around $150 and it’s only a matter of time till we start seeing them online, either for reselling purposes or for flexing’s sake. But honestly, we think they look like some camper’s inflatable mattress or this child’s car seat. Maybe, as a father, Kanye looks toward his children for inspiration. I swear that story would make these slides way easier more worth it.
And of all the Yeezys releasing this year, this one is our easy drop. Safe to say we just saved 150 bucks. But I mean people wear weird Birkenstocks all the time, so what’s to say about those who wear something Yeezy- however questionable they look.
The drop for these was very sudden and came without warning. Similar to the suede Desert Rat boots that popped up in different stores late last month. So what’s the deal with Yeezy items dropping randomly in different places?
Could this signify that the slides will drop somewhere else soon and you could have another chance at copping the Yeezy Season 6 slides if you wanted?
With Virgil Abloh having been on Kanye’s team in the past, who’s to say it wouldn’t happen again? An OFF-WHITE Yeezy is not some figment of the imagination. It is a look into the future of design with concise knowledge of the past. One designer, Huy Le envisioned a day when Virgil Abloh will pick up a Yeezy and make magic happen. This is what an OFF WHITE Yeezy would look like.
These babies do not come cheap. You can buy ready-made OFF-WHITE Yeezys for a minimum of $850. However, prices vary depending on your shoe size. Some sizes can cost you up to $50 more. The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Creams used for these customs are 100% authentic according to Huy Le. However, if you already own your pair of authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Creams, all you need to do is send yours over to be customized. Huy Customs will hand paint your Yeezys to give it that OFF-WHITE treatment for just $350.
What’s really noticeable in the photographs above, there is intense care to every detail of the customization. I mean check out that orange on the heel tab! Not to mention that the shoe also comes with the signature zip tie.
Custom sneakers have been a thing ever since Vans Customs started the tradition in 1966. The designer would make Vans with any fabric his customers brought to the store. And you can still customize your own Vans today to give it your own touch. We get to customize our homes, phones, desktops, workspaces, game characters, profiles, and even t-shirts, so why stop there? In a world full of Beluga 2.0s, why not be a little unique and add your own twist to things?

By the end of December, we tend to look back and see the best and worst times that passed so we can move to the next year. Let’s give Kanye a helping hand and do a wrap up 2017’s Yeezy releases so we can happily awe at the Yeezys dropping in 2018.
Now that Yeezy season has come to a bittersweet end, let’s take a moment to reminisce Yeezys of 2017.
First, we had the bold Yeezy Boost 350 Bred:
Second, came the Yeezy Boost 350 Zebra, which re-released:
Then came the triple white, Yeezy Boost 350 Cream Whites:
And how can we forget the Wave Runner 700s?
At last, we had the three extremely hyped releases of Fall 2017 the Yebra, Beluga 2.0, and Blue Tints:
We also had a grey Powerphase that came out this month and a white Powerphase that came out earlier:
Oh, and the Desert Rat 500 Super Moon Yellow that came as part of a set that cost $760:
Next year seems promising and it looks like Ye and Adidas have their work cut out for them. We already know some of the Yeezys dropping in 2018. Well, let’s just start with the great news. It looks like Ye’s going for all neutral tones in 2018, which kind of takes us back to when Kayne first started with Adidas.
We’re moving away from crazy Boost 350 colorways. We have more subtle colors coming up in 2018: Sesame (left) and Ice Yellow (right).
The Desert Rat 500 is another Yeezy dropping in 2018. This time you won’t have to pay $760 for it. However, the Yeezy Mafia has led me to believe that the colorway dropping this time won’t be the same Super Moon Yellow.
We’ve also got the black Calabasas Powerphase early in 2018:
Moreover, still waiting for updates on new Wave Runner 700 colorways.
And could we be expecting updates about the apparent basketball Yeezy?
Also, what is this? It looks like something that would be created if the Wave Runner 700 and the basketball-ish shoe got married.
Keep your eyes open for more updates, because 2018 looks like it’ll be a nice year for new Yeezys to be born.
We’ve all seen some gruesome things in our life, but none as terrible and unseeable as what you’re about to view. We can’t believe we live in the same world as the people who have copped brand new Yeezys only to destroy them. May Yeezus frown down upon you! Here are 7 of the saddest, most savage things people have done with their brand new Yeezys, for the hell of it! Warning: Reader discretion advised.
Zhijun Wang is a designer based in Beijing, where air pollution is a citywide issue. Instead of wearing Yeezys on feet, he creates sneaker face masks. Can’t deny that it’s a cool statement. However, this requires actually taking real Yeezys and cutting them up! The atrocity! MoMA New York has his Yeezy Beluga face mask on display until January 28th, 2018.
YouTuber of the channel “What’s Inside”, cut through his brand new Turtle Doves, just to see what’s inside. If your heart can handle it, watch this video to see him sawing through it to reveal the layers of Boost.
Dan from What’s Inside isn’t the only one cutting through Yeezys, but at least he had a reason! Sean Wotherspoon, who dipped his Supreme x Jordan Vs in red paint, cut his new Yeezys in half just hours after they released. For what? Attention? He even used the Supreme knife to dissect the Yeezy!
We kid you not, this actually happened. One YouTuber, Mahrun Karkvandeian, was so over the hype of these shoes that he felt like he needed to take a stand to kill the hype once and for all. For his statement to be made, he recorded a video of himself dipping his Yeezy 750s into homemade liquid nitrogen and then smashed them with a sledgehammer. And as if that wasn’t enough, he torched his 750 into ashes. He didn’t stop just there, he also has a video where he heartlessly tortures a pair of 350s until finally burning them at the end.
As if it weren’t hard enough seeing Karkvandian freeze, smash and burn his Yeezys, two kids and the third behind the camera just poured lighter fluid all over their brand new Yeezys and set fire to them with a flamethrower. But why? The black and crispy condition of the shoes a the end of the video reminds me of the supposedly burned bodies of Bran and Rickon in GoT. Smh.
Crep, you are the devil!!! Crep ruined these Yeezys, for a short while before restoring them to their original condition. Although no Yeezys were permanently harmed during these experiments, it’s still painful to watch! *sobs in the corner*
I mean, if you pay so much for a pair of sneakers, you might as well expect them to be durable enough to run in, right? Wrong. This one dude went running in his Pirate Blacks and the primeknit just tore off the Boost. But you shouldn’t run in Yeezys, they’re not sports shoes. They’re a lifestyle sneaker, casual day-to-day wear for the streets, not for the gym!
Brothers, Tobi and Fabian made a video of themselves ruining a perfect Yeezy shoe by covering them in mustard, spinach yogurt dip, lemon juice and then coke. The saddest thing is that they’re not the only ones to soak their Yeezys in random things.
YouTuber, NameBran, has soaked and dipped Yeezys into all kinds of fluids from whiskey and wine, to pumpkin spice lattes, Pepto-Bismol, green jello and so much more. Bran has even bleached his Yeezys. This guy has gone as far as deep frying them- for the sake of the internet! For the safety of Yeezys, we pray the ones he had were fakes.
Just because you had to see all the excruciatingly terrible things people have done with their brand new Yeezys, we think you deserve to see this fluffy doggy in Yeezys. So, maybe you’d think it’s a sad thing that the owner would put a cute dog into his new Yeezys, but we think it’s awesome! Kanye should make Yeezys in puppy sizes!
Sneakerheads, you’ve just witnessed thousands of dollars being thrown wasted! It’s not like they’re as easy to come by as the Beluga 2.0s! Moving on… we do not claim ownership of any of these photographs. We would never harm a Yeezy. But if you know someone who would, please take them to therapy before they unjustifiably destroy another sole.
Not to add salt to the wound or anything, but two fine Yeezys came out in November and you probably copped none. Not saying it’s your fault; copping Yeezys is no easy task, even for a hype demon. Plus, it could be bewildering if you’re a beginner in this wicked sneaker game. To be fair (yes even a demon can be fair sometimes), the Yebras, Semi Frozen Yellows, Yeezy McChickens, or whatever you want to call them, were the most limited V2s ever. But what’s your excuse for the Beluga 2.0s? Those were densely stocked, son. SMH. However, now we’re not too far away from the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tints. You know what they say, third time’s a charm. Are you willing to learn a my favorite deadly tricks for copping Yeezys? This is my Apprentice 6-6-6 guide to copping Yeezys manually online.
Copping Yeezys isn’t as complex and labyrinthine as many like to put it. All it takes is some damn research and preparatory measures, but no one seems ready for that. What if I told you it’s not as frightening as you may think?
If you have to, bribe your friends with free food at your place, and let ‘em bring their laptops and cell-phones. Let copping Yeezys become an event!
Ask your provider to give you an upgrade to the highest internet speed there is.
The world has got some darling individuals who designate servers a near as possible to cop sites like Adidas. Using a server improves your connection to the sneaker sites you want to cop from.
Do you want to get your ass banned? No. So invest in some private proxies. As many as the devices, you’ve gathered. Make sure they’re located in the same country you want to cop from, and near the server you got.
Reminder: You’re going to need different credit card information for each device you have. Ask your friends, your parents, your grandparents, even get new cards from other banks. Do what you gotta do to have as many cards as you can, because that’ll increase your chances tremendously.
You heard me my G. If you want to get good at copping Yeezys, you need to get good at solving captchas. Even let your friends and family solve ‘em with you on other devices when you get through to the product page.
Wake up early and start your day by getting yourself in the right mood for copping Yeezys. Get that cup of coffee, tea, or any drink that gets you energized. Don’t drink too much though, because you don’t have time for a pee break.
Before you enter the “waiting room”, you will need to refresh the Adidas website’s splash page as often as you can. But once you’re in the queue for your Yeezys DO NOT REFRESH. I repeat, DO NOT REFRESH! A lot of copping engines get passed the splash page directly into the “waiting room”.
Here, you’ll need to be extremely quick. On each device, you only have one chance. It’s do or die. Simple three things to do: (1) Select your desired size. (2) Solve the captcha. (3) Add to cart.
Make sure that all the required information is there. One wrong or missing letter can be fatal. Recheck your billing information and shipping address. Make sure that no same card is being used more than once.
Breathe heavily into a paper bag if you have to.
The process of copping Yeezys is never complete until you receive a confirmation of purchase/ shipment email.
Is it time for me to say, “Godspeed”? *smirk*
Tip 1: Don’t be a baby about it. Figure out what went wrong for next time.
Tip 2: Sell the rest online for more than they’re worth! That’s pure evil, just the way I like it! Or, well, if you’re feeling charitable, give some pairs away….. Or you can bribe someone for a pair, teehee.
Tip 3: Thank the generous friends and family who helped you out.
Tip 4: Share your experience. Write a blog. Make a YouTube video. Do something useful.
Tip 5: Remember, just because you got lucky once doesn’t guarantee that you’ll always get lucky copping Yeezys.
Tip 6: You may want to make and upgrade to your copping method depending on how many pairs you want to cop. Adding a copping engine to the mix is a great way to do that.
Despite all these sinister and foolproof tricks, a lot of people have sold their souls and resorted to using copping engines. That’s funny because they sold their souls for the soles. See what I did there? Am I the only one who finds that funny?
Anyway, copping engines can drastically increase a person’s chances at copping Yeezys in a stress-free manner. The cool thing is that these engines can work independently after being prepped and started correctly. Less work, more Yeezys.
This guide better have helped you in some way. It took some effort to write this down for you, while I could have been out doing something else. Maybe I’ll go have some well-deserved me-time right now. DEMON OUT. *mic drop*
