2019 Top 10 Yeezy Pick ups
2019 was a great year for Adidas and the Yeezy line. Below are my top 10 personal pick ups!!
10. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 350 CLOUD WHITE
Some of you may know that I am not the hugest fan of white shoes but I chose these to be in the top 10 because they are a very clean yeezy, I think a darker blue knit similar to the slate 500s would have been a knock out.
9. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 350 ZEBRA
These made the list for me because they are one of the most popular/iconic Yeezys. I was blessed to get chosen on the Adidas app raffle for 2 pairs. Honestly will end up selling these, I cant stand to see the white sole get dirty.
8. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 700 V2 VANTA
I am surprised these aren't reselling for more. The 700 model is one of my favorite yeezys that I wear more often than my 350's. The Vantas are right down my alley with the all black look. Got blessed by SNS (Sneakersnstuff) with the raffle win for these. It might be an unpopular opinion but ill take a V1 700 over a V2 700 any day :)
7. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 350 CLAY
These released early in the year and in my opinion brought back a little hype to the yeezy line. The color was different from anything that had been previously released. The sizing on the Clays felt a little more roomier in the toe area which is a plus for me. Still haven't worn my pair yet.
6. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 700 V1 MAGNET
If the Salt 700's and the Waverunner 700's had a baby, you would get the something like the Magnets. The Magnets have the same midsole with orange hits on the pods like the Waverunners but have a slight twist with the darker upper. A darker shoe with waverunner hints got me sold, these were a must cop!
5. YEEZY 500 HIGH SLATE
The 500 Slates are a real sleeper. I'm a big fan of the 500s, if you haven't tried on a pair yet I would do it asap. Even though the 500s do not have boost, the adiprene and ortholite insoles make up for it giving you a very comfortable ride. I am glad Adidas created the high top version and I am excited to see what other colorways they have in store.
4. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 350 YECHEIL
Finally, a yeezy that isnt the same monochromatic tan. When I first saw leaked pics of these I knew I had to have them. Many have said these are like a "What The" yeezy but in my opinion these are great because of how different they are from any other yeezy. Prices on these might go up in the future but who knows. I am just glad I could snag a few pairs.
3. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 700 V2 GEODE
I wasn't sure about the Geodes when they originally dropped since they were very similar in color to the Mauve 700s but man I am glad I copped them. The Geodes might be brown like the Mauves but that's about the closest thing they have in common. Look closely and in some lighting the midsole is actually an indigo blue. I find myself wearing these almost every week. If you can get a pair for cheap I wouldn't hesitate!
2. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 380 ALIEN
The 380 Alien was a nice change up from any other yeezy released this year. The new midsole seems to have a little more boost but also the reduced heel sweep gives it a totally different feel when wearing them. Boostshields for the 380 are a PITA but will be sold soon based on the sizes that I have. Overall a cool direction that Adidas is moving towards.
1. ADIDAS YEEZY BOOST 350 BLACK NON REFLECTIVE
My favorite yeezy release for the year of 2019. We were lucky to see a release in June and November. I was able to cop from both releases but have been wearing my June pair since. The pair from June are a lot more comfortable than the pair in November. The June release pair has a very soft and stretchy knit almost reminiscent of the pirate black V1's. Being that the pirate blacks and bred V2 are one of my favorite yeezys, the black non reflective were a no brainer and took the #1 spot on my list.
