Sneakerheads should definitely be thanking Dino Hatfield (@baltsneakershow) for all the latest photos of the various upcoming adidas Yeezy Boost iterations that have been flooding the Internet over the past few weeks. The most recent of those photos is that of a canvas version of the classic Yeezy Boost 350, which no longer features its signature Primeknit construction. It is arguable that the Boost 350 is better off with Primeknit uppers, but apparently the Three Stripes think otherwise. However, this could potentially be a sign that the retail price of this sneaker will be lesser than typical Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers that have been sold in the past.
So, it turns out that adidas have whipped up a 2.0 version of the Yeezy Boost 350 as well, which can be seen above. Unlike the canvas Boost 350, the upgraded 2.0 version is still made up of Primeknit material, while its sole units obviously have Boost technology incorporated into them. The fact that the ankles have a different cut, and both the Bost soles and its Primeknit uppers are also have varying designs is what sets the 2.0 apart as an upgraded version.
Next in line is the Yeezy Boost 550, which is a blend of the 350 and the 650 that will be discussed below. It can be classified neither as a mid-top nor as a low-top, so it is somewhere in between. As seen in the above, the Yeezy Boost 550 also retains the Primeknit construction but some stripe prints also appear to be covering the uppers. It also appears to be equipped with translucent Boost outsoles. What is unique about this silhouette is that its ankle sports a very unique cut, as a result of which it has a much higher frontal region when compared to its rear end.
Last but not least, there are apparently two colorways of the adidas Yeezy Boost 650. Essentially, the 650’s uppers are also made up of Primeknit, but one rendition is dressed up in a Green and Olive combination while the other appears to be all-Black. The model itself is a mid-top and its soles appear to have been designed to feature distinct ridges, which distinguishes it from the other Boost silhouettes.
Of course, adidas is choosing to be mysterious by not officially announcing and confirming which Yeezy Boost model will be making its retail debut very soon. However, reports and rumors are making it obvious that is neither of the above, rather it will most likely be the adidas Yeezy Boost 750.
