History of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2
The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 is the most successful silhouette of Ye and Adidas known for its impeccable design as well as being one of the most comfortable sneakers on the market. Originally Designed for Adidas in September 2016., with the color “Beluga”. First unveiled at the Yeezy Season 3 show at Madison Square Garden during New York Fashion Week, the shoe’s design was primarily based on the original 350 model, but with some minor upgrades. Features a translucent midsole, a new primeknit upper and the addition of SPLY-350 stripes.
I like to draw damn shoes, and it doesn’t matter if someone thinks I have to do something more important. Adidas gave me the opportunity to make my own, especially in this first competition. They didn’t say, “You have to make the logo 4 times bigger than the shoe.”
