Here's another option for everyone hoping to join Kanye's Cool Sneaker Club by handing over $200 tomorrow for the launch of the new Yeezy Boost 350: Mr. Porter just announced that it will stock the sneakers online the morning of Saturday, June 27th.
This could be good news for sneaker fans who weren't able to reserve a pair from the Adidas Confirmed app. The International Business Times reports that the Adidas app crashed after being overloaded with traffic. Some shoppers were even able to place orders before the official release, according to Sole Collector, but those orders were quickly canceled by Adidas. For those who want to try their luck in-store, there's a list here on Adidas's site of every retail location carrying the Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers.
This is just the beginning for Mr. Porter and Yeezy x Adidas Original. The site will also carry a range of jackets, tees, pants, sneakers, and more from the collection this October. According to the press release, prices will range from $180 to $4550. Barneys has already announced that they will carry the line.
