Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, has been a firm fixture of the sneaker scene for some time. From the launch of his Yeezy brand in collaboration with adidas to his futuristic designs, the American rapper has revolutionised the industry and secured his legendary status within the game, and Yeezy Day is testament to this.
First arriving in 2019 as a two-day celebration of all things Yeezy, Yeezy Day presents an opportunity to buy new releases, restocks and never-before-seen editions. This year, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga Reflective and Yeezy 450 Utility Black make a much-awaited comeback, with new colourways and fresh iterations following suit. Here, we take a look at every sneaker that dropped for Yeezy Day 2022.
Yeezy 500 Supermoon Yellow
It’s been four years since the Yeezy Boost 500 Supermoon Yellow first hit the market, but it remains one of the most iconic kicks from Ye’s portfolio. Donning a pale yellow colour scheme across the entire shoe, the upper comes in a blend of premium suede, leather and mesh. Championing comfort and style thanks to the adiPrene technology, it’s easy to wear all year round — make sure you’re in line for a pair.
Yeezy 450 Utility Black
Designed with industry-leading technology and a sock-like construction, the Yeezy 450 Utility Black is a one-of-a-kind silhouette. Featuring an all-black upper with matching weaved laces, the PU-injected midsole offers high-performance cushioning and support. Underfoot, the moulded sole units showcase a dynamic sculpted shape, while recycled materials throughout lend a sustainable edge. Serving up both fashion and function, this shoe will slip effortlessly into your daily rotation.
Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga Reflective
A sneaker that needs no introduction, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga Reflective is one of the most sought-after shoes from the Ye x adidas collaboration. Built with a breathable Primeknit upper, it’s accented with contrasting fibres for a speckled effect. On the side, the bright red stripe — now synonymous with the 350 silhouette — is marked with signature SPLY-350 branding. Undeniably a crowd favourite, don’t miss your chance to grab a pair this time around.
Yeezy Boost 700 Hi-Res Blue
Landing as part of the Yeezy Day celebrations, the Yeezy Boost 700 Hi-Res Blue offers a fresh take on a classic silhouette. Set apart from Ye’s traditional designs, this iteration dons a bright blue upper, balanced by purple, red and black accents. Playing with texture throughout, it’s crafted with a mix of mesh, leather, and suede materials, creating a functional shoe that’s guaranteed to turn heads.
Yeezy Foam Runner Onyx
Joining the restocks returning on Yeezy Day, the Yeezy Foam Onyx is a certified must-have. Putting sustainability at the forefront of the design, the entire shoe is powered by EVA foam, while a neutral black colourway makes it a versatile choice for everyday wear. Rounded off with ridges that will be familiar to any Yeezy fan, this shoe embodies the brand’s vision without compromising on style.
Yeezy 700 V3 Azael
A sneaker that’s stood the test of time, the Yeezy 700 V3 Azael was first seen back in 2019. Debuting the inaugural colour scheme of the game-changing 700 silhouette, it’s designed with a white mesh base and futuristic cages contrasted by hits of black on the tongue and laces. Combining performance basketball aesthetics with a lifestyle silhouette, this top-tier kick is one of the most coveted models from the collection.
