The game-changing YEEZY BOOST sneaker is back in full force, this time with a pop of color. Called the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2, this redesign of character looks ahead with a foot deeply rooted in the past and further sets off Kanye West’s forward-looking design vision. Once again crafted with premium materials that meld adidas’ technology with Kanye West’s unmistakable aesthetic, the 350 V2 makes a splash with its Primeknit upper jazzed up by a solar red streak, a semi-translucent rubber outsole and TPU sidewalls creating a striking effect while providing superior traction.
Technicalities aside, when two high-profile names join forces the outcome is bound to be of the red-hot variety. Such is the case with the new Mastermind JAPAN x adidas Originals collaboration that includes two exclusive releases, in a monochromatic black palette, that epitomize the perfect symbiosis of two iconic brands. The first is the NMD featuring Mastermind’s signature Skull & Crossbone motif that stands out against the black mesh upper complete with reflective custom lacing sparking up the design. Yet again characterized by the skull and bones design, the high-cut Tubular Instinct comes in plush leather, complete with toe perforations, a heel zipper and reflective lacing. Style apart, both rework Mastermind’s uncompromised design language with a cool sports-cum-punkish vibe.
