Yeezy's most democratic drop

Thursday last week, Kanye fulfilled his promise of “everyone who wants Yeezys will be able to get them,” when he released a much larger re-issue of the Yeezy 350 V2 Triple White sneaker. If you signed up in advance on yeezysupply.com, you were issued a presale code to get access to the shoes before the general public on Adidas’ site. I couldn’t believe it.

I saw the link and the code and was like OK, I’ll try this. I added shoes to my cart and didn’t think I’d even have time to process my credit card before they sold out. But luckily I was wrong. I was actually able to get into the site with different transactions a total of four times. I really wasn’t expecting that.

I applaud Kanye for following up with his promise. Like, honestly, if you want Yeezys and don’t already have them, you should soon. There are still some sizes available on Adidas. This has never happened before.

I do wish it was a different colorway though, but oh well. Triple white is super clean which is dope and goes with virtually anything you’re wearing or have in your closet, but they get dirty after one wear. Gotta be careful. That’s why I always lean towards the darker sneakers, especially when we’re talking Yeezys or anything hype that’s expensive.

If you’ve tried to cop a pair of adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers this year, you know just how hard it’s been to actually get a pair. The coveted kicks regularly sell out long before they make it to store shelves, often fetching upwards of five-times their box price on the resell market. That’s why in February, sneakerheads were thrilled to hear Kanye utter these now-infamous words: “Eventually everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys.

Anyway, thank you Kanye. It’s awesome to not have to pay close to four digits on a pair of your sneakers. I hope there’s a lot more of this.
