The most affordable Yeezys on the market
As any fan of the Yeezy brand is more than aware the majority of the models on their roster cost a fair amount on the resale market. The retail price for the most part isn’t too shocking, but only a small percentage of people ever get a pair of Yeezys on release date, at retail price. Instead, a lot of fans have to settle for purchasing Yeezys on the secondary market where the price is ultimately dominated by the demand for the product. What this means is that in almost every case, the price you have to pay sky rockets. However, in some cases, there are still deals to be made, and there are still some affordable Yeezys on the market.
Adidas Yeezy Powerphase Calabasas – A forgotten option
I appreciate that when you think of Yeezy, the Powerphase Calabasas doesn’t immediately jump to mind. That doesn’t mean the shoe isn’t an incredibly viable option however. If you are looking for an affordable Yeezy then look no further. The numbered Yeezy (350, 500 700) might win the popularity contest, but the Powerphase Calabasas doesn’t exactly break the bank like they do. Retailing at a brand low £100, means that even on the secondary market where naturally the price gets bumped, you still aren’t paying too much. With the most expensive Powerphase Calabasas, the White (OG) colourway costing around the £190 mark now. While the Grey costs around £125 and rather shockingly, the Black you can buy for £85. Which is below the retail price, and if that isn’t value I don’t know what is.
Yeezy Boost 700 – under retail
2019 is most definitely the year of the Yeezy Boost 700. Seeing a pretty impressive expansion of the catalogue, not every model has hit the same high notes as others. Two in particular for one reason or another have flown under the radar. The Yeezy 700 Analog and the Yeezy 700 Utility Black both retailed at £250 on release day. Since then, both prices have dropped below retail. With the Utility Black now trading on the secondary market for £225. While the Analog now trades at £230. What this might be attributed to is the muted nature of the two colourways. As well as their release dates which both fell close to more coveted variations like the Tephra and Vanta which came for the new Yeezy Boost 700 v2 model. Whatever it is down to, us fans aren’t complaining with them available under retail.
Yeezy Boost 350 – the three cheapest
The Yeezy Boost 350 has the most models in its catalogue, and also has some of the most expensive members on the market. This is down to their age, rarity, and in some cases just their style. There are three I can pick out however, that don’t necessarily break the bank, compared to the ‘Pirate Blacks’ of the world. The ‘Butter’, ‘Sesame’ and ‘Cream White’ colourways all retailed at £180 and now are trading at £210, £230 and £220 respectively on online trainers markets. Which isn’t bad at all considering their status as some of the most iconic and classic Yeezy Boost 350s.
