Kanye West and Adidas are about to release the second sneaker from their Yeezy Season 1 collab, which debuted at New York Fashion Week in February. The low-top Yeezy Boost 350 will launch on June 27th around the globe. It retails for $200, and will also be accessible in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago through Adidas Confirmed, the brand's sneaker reservation app. The app launch will be set to a staggered schedule, and reservation capabilities will be unlocked from East to West.
Sole Collector claims that these shoes will be more widely available than the $350 Kanye West x adidas Yeezy Boost sneakers. Those sold out in 10 minutes flat and then went for thousands of dollars on eBay.
