How to Tell If Your Yeezys Are Fake
Kanye West’s shoes continue to sell like hotcakes despite Adidas ending its partnership with him last year, according to US shoe retailer Impossible Kicks’ sales figures. Since this change occurred, Impossible Kicks reported an uptick in sales.
The Yeezy 350 V2 Earth colorway is exclusive to Americas and features a Primeknit upper with mud hued Primeknit and an earth-tone Boost cushioned sole.
Kanye West and adidas collaborated in early 2020 to release the “Earth” colorway of the 350 V2, available exclusively at Stadium Goods across North America for $220 USD each. If you are considering purchasing this pair, here are some helpful hints as to how you can tell if your pair is authentic or not.
Yeezy wants to use algae foam for shoe manufacturing, which involves drying the plant and grinding into powder form before spraying onto molds with other ingredients and spraying onto shoes for sale. Although no official release date for their sale has been given yet, these eco-friendly shoes could appeal to environmentally conscious buyers; additionally, the company already sells footwear made from recycled plastic bottles.
Achievement and Honors
In 2015, Footwear News awarded Kanye West’s Yeezy 350 V2 Earth sneakers the Shoe Of The Year award. Since their release, these highly successful sneaker releases have caused chaos among retailers and servers worldwide, sparking mob control in stores with thousands reselling for thousands of dollars each. In February, Kanye released three shoes on a regional basis — Earth for North America, Tail Light for Europe and Flax for Asia Pacific– each one inspired by natural tones including baked clay brown and wheat hues.
As 2010 came to a close, Kanye West decided to go out in style by unveiling his last pair of 350 V2’s that bore his name: Yecheil 350 V2. Kanye chose this religious figure’s name because it embodies his current state of mind at this stage in time.
As such, this sneaker features earth-toned hues such as baked clay brown and dirt brown with olive green accents on its upper. Completing its monochromatic design is a full-length BOOST foam midsole featuring solid dark green rubber.
After leaving Nike, Kanye West collaborated with adidas on a sneaker line called Yeezy that became highly desirable due to their design, aesthetic, and Boost cushioning technology. West maintained significant creative control and had established an engaged fan base.
UBS Group AG estimated Yeezy West’s partnership with adidas as being valued at up to $4.7 billion by 2021, including an agreement that provided future royalties. West also owns a considerable personal fortune consisting of cash and investments as well as his music catalog as well as 5% stake in Kim Kardashian’s shapewear business Skims.
Rares announced in February 2022 that it had purchased two one-of-a-kind Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 “Earth” sneakers for $275,000. This purchase broke the previous record set by Sotheby’s when selling Michael Jordan’s game-worn Air Jordan 1s for $560,000.
