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.
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
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.
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.
