YEEZY 380: A DISTINCTIVE SNEAKER SILHOUETTE
CREATING A LEGEND
Drawing inspiration from the dad-shoe trend, Kanye West and Adidas unveiled the striking Yeezy 380 silhouette in 2017!
Renowned in the music world, the multi-faceted artist ventured into the fashion industry and collaborated with several high-profile brands like Nike and Louis Vuitton. In 2015, after numerous disagreements with Nike, Kanye West decided to create his own brand in partnership with Adidas: Yeezy.
The young company launched several models in its founding year, starting with the Yeezy Boost 750, quickly followed by the Yeezy Boost 350 in versions 1 and 2, and then the Yeezy 950. Over time, the designer became one of the most influential figures in fashion. With ultra-limited edition pairs being released, demand remains strong, and fans eagerly seek the latest Yeezy silhouettes!
A SNEAKER WITH A RADICAL DESIGN
The Yeezy 380 model emerged in this context. In 2017, the chunky sneaker trend, also known as dad shoes, took center stage, characterized by the wide sneakers worn by American dads in the 90s. Kanye West drew significant inspiration from this trend to create the Yeezy 700 and 500 silhouettes. This new 500 line debuted with the first-ever Blush version. Capturing the curiosity of fans, the designer decided to expand the range, introducing subsequent versions like Super Moon Yellow, Utility Black, and more recently, Salt.
Featuring a departure from Adidas' signature Boost sole, the Yeezy 500 is wider and boasts a more unique appearance. Initially criticized for its significantly different design compared to other models in the market, the Yeezy 500 has become one of the most sought-after sneakers, available in numerous colorways. Recently, the duo has been innovating even further with the increasingly popular Yeezy Slide.
YEEZY 380 WITH ADIPRENE SOLE
Adiprene technology aims to enhance the performance of running shoes. Implemented under the heel, Adiprene absorbs shocks generated by changes in support and stride. Often coupled with Adiprene+, it provides more stability and explosive power, particularly noticeable in basketball. Kanye West and his Yeezy label stay true to their values by incorporating comfort into their sneakers. This sole's usage has skyrocketed with various colors appearing on basketball models in collaborations with renowned point guards like Portland's Damian Lillard and John Wall. Recently, the sole was integrated into the latest Yeezy 700 V3, signifying a revamp of their pairs. This technology, less expensive than Boost, allows for comfortable pairs at a lower price. As you can see, Yeezy is not afraid to utilize the latest innovations to combine design and comfort in their models. Note that in terms of sizing, it is advisable to choose a size above your usual size!
