I’m sure we’ve all heard of the famous Kanye Yeezys. They’ve become so popular that every young person and sneaker lover wants to own at least one pair. Kanye is immensely popular, and his sneakers don’t need much marketing and advertising. He first started this journey with Nike in 2009. The first sneakers released were the Nike Air Yeezy 1, with the well-known Air sole bubble.
But in 2013, Kanye left Nike and decided to join Adidas. He got full control of the design of the shoes and, of course, more money. They sealed the deal, and it turned out to be the best decision they could make for each other. The release of their first shoes together was a smashing hit. Their collaboration continues to this day, and they work every day to create something new, comfortable and never seen before.
Why Are Yeezy Sneakers So Popular?
Since the release of the Yeezy Boost 350, people, magazines and fashion critics have named it the coolest shoe on the planet, which no one looks good in. These shoes have a strange shape, a wide sole and a rather unconventional lacing design that makes a tongue unnecessary. With each shoe release, sites go down, and they get sold out in just a couple of minutes. These Yeezy shoes might be the ugliest on the market, but people still buy and wear them. The brand is very popular, and even if it’s still not worth billions, it’s surprisingly influential and a big Jordan competitor.
There are several reasons these shoes are such a big hit. First, the incredibly popular Yeezy sneakers are released in very small batches. This makes them hard to get, and they sell out in just a few minutes. This makes them even more desirable. A second reason is the status symbol they represent. Stars such as Justin Bieber, Jay-Z and Calvin Haris wear these shoes, making them even more valuable and desirable. And the third reason is comfortability. Because of the Ultraboost technology, Yeezys make you feel like you’re walking on clouds.
Kanye is one of the most controversial public figures today. You can love or hate him, but you know him for sure. He’s greatly impacted pop culture and is very influential with clothing, music and accessories. He took advantage of this and made a brand for himself that made millions, started new trends and gained more and more followers daily.
The Most Popular Models
Since its first release in 2015, the Yeezy Boost 350 has been one of the most popular models ever made. They even made it to the New York Fashion Week that year, which gave them a big boost on the market. Their popularity inspired a sequel, the Yeezy 350 V2. And after so many years, they’re still popular, and people look for an extra pair to buy. The “Copper Stripe” was one of the Black Friday specials and a very unconventional one. It has a copper stripe over it with the SPLV-350 writing. The Bred design is very simple, a black shoes with red writing. A nice contrast but also a simple and beautiful design.
The Zebra is one of the most recognisable models on the market. The black and white stripes with red writing at the centre were a huge hit among sneaker-lovers worldwide. They were unique and easily recognisable. The Beluga 1.0 have a grey upper and lower part, with an orange stripe through the centre. One of the most popular ones was the Red Stripe. They’re not your regular running arch sneakers but are a part of the limited Black Friday edition.
Where and How Are Yeezy’s Made?
One of the most frequently asked questions is, where are Yeezys made? The right answer is China. Kanye was planning on bringing the production to the USA by 2021, but that didn’t work out as planned. He wanted to bring new jobs, make an ample supply complex and create faster production. He’s getting closer to this goal every single day.
With the release of the Yeezy 750, the Adidas TPU-foam made its way to fame. Kanye also used the Primeknit and Boost technologies in the manufacturing process. The Wave Runner 700 and 700 MNVN have a combination of suede and mesh, with nylon being the on-foot minivan. One of the most recent discoveries and new addition to the Yeezy family is the Yeezy Foam Runner. These are shoes made from algae blends.
How to Keep Them Clean?
Cleaning your Yeezys is not a complicated process. You first need to remove the insoles and the laces. Pulling the laces out carefully without damaging the eyelets and the insoles should also be handled with care. If you want a DIY home cleaner, mix 1 part water and two parts vinegar in a bowl. You can replace the vinegar with a shoe cleaner bought from a store. To clean the soles, grab a hard bristled brush and scrub to remove the dirt. If you don’t have a brush, you can use a rag or a cloth. Dip the brush in the mixture regularly and avoid the stitching and the knitting. After finishing the brush, wipe the soles with a damp cloth to ensure all the dirt is out.
Now, use a soft-bristled brush to scrub the rest of the shoe. You don’t need vinegar for this; just water will do fine. Use your hand to stop the water from going inside the shoe, and ensure you dip the brush in water frequently. Always air dry them and don’t put them near heaters or fireplaces. A nice breeze will suffice. A solution of 5 parts water and 1 part dish soap is enough to clean the laces. Leave them in this mixture for 20 minutes, scrub them with a soft-bristled brush, and air dry them.
How to Spot a Fake?
There are several ways to see if the Yeezy sneakers are real or fake. With so many counterfeit manufacturers worldwide, you need to be careful where you invest your money. Real Yezzys have a small logo and “YZY” on the side. The label should say “Made in China”. Instead of “Sample Made in China”. The text on the soles shouldn’t be pure white; it almost matches the colour of the insole. The letters SPLV-350 go straight across the real ones, and the fakes have a little curve. The stitching should be a neat X and square pattern instead of a messy crisscross. The real Yeezys should have nine dots in the centre of the heel tab.
All in all, we can say that the Yeezys are one of the most popular sneakers in the world. Partly because of Kanye and his interesting marketing approach and partly because of their high-quality materials. Either way, Kanye’s business is rising, and people will keep buying these shoes. Keep up with the new release dates and say informed on what’s going on if you want to have the next pair of Yeezys on your shelve.
