The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2: A Little Hype Goes a Long Way

Yeezy 700 V2 Static

The original adidas Yeezy Boost 700 took a few cultural moments to catch on with the public. So, before the Yeezy 700 V2 hit the shelves in December 2018, Kanye rallied friends and family to show off the new iteration and generate buzz. This 7-month hype had sneakerheads wondering if the shoe would ever release. When limited runs of the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 finally hit shelves, the fans and collectors who had eagerly awaited its arrival drove demand through the roof.

The Yeezy 700 V2 came with a retail price of $300 and retained the general aesthetic of the original. To give it a unique identity, Kanye updated the materials and introduced fresh colorways throughout 2019.

A Few Tweaks Create a Whole New Look

The chunky design Kanye West introduced in the original adidas Yeezy Boost 700 remains largely intact for the Yeezy Boost 700 V2. What has drastically changed is the upper's construction. Though still reminiscent of a classic 1990s running silhouette, this new rendering features a breathable mesh base with overlays of leather, Nubuck, knit and reflective accents. This melding of materials creates a platform on which to fluctuate color and tonality. Besides the upper, other variations you'll find in the V2 include:

  • Iconic three-stripe adidas signature logo is subtly and artfully displayed in reflective 3M overlaying the mesh
  • Ortholite insole adds extra cushioning
  • Textures and grooves on the outsole merge with the upper for a distinct Yeezy aesthetic

Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Colorways:

Subtlety That Stands Out

The V2 proves color doesn't have to be bright and bold to make an impact. Muted tones can pack a punch when set on a backdrop full of depth and dimension.

Static

This first colorway in the updated 700 was released in December 2018. The understated mix of neutral greys and white play beautifully into the leather and Nubuck panels and reflective overlays.

Geode

In March 2019, the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 brought deeper contrast to the shoe with varying shades of blacks and greys with dashes of earthy browns. Reflective accents heighten the drama.

Vanta

This sleek colorway, named after the darkest shade of black, was released in June 2019 and is the first in the 700 line to come in sizes for kids and infants. Layers of mesh and suede overlays and reflective details add depth and dimension to the all-over black silhouette.

Tephra

Following right on the heels of the Vanta, this subdued mix of natural beige tones is offset by deeper hues on the midsole.

Inertia

In September 2019, the "blue roller knit" and "dual blue" leather and suede colorway was the first of two blue releases to round out the V2. Brilliant pops of orange offset the monochromatic look.

The final Yeezy Boost 700 V2 made its entrance in a refined monochromatic look that carries across the upper's textures and layers.

Collectability and Value of the adidas

Originality matters. The most collectable of the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 colorways was the first to hit the market—Static. As the leader, this colorway got the most attention, and its resale value reflects that. Static can fetch upwards of $800 to hungry sneakerheads. The remaining colorways in the collection typically hover in the $300 price range.

in the Public Eye

Kanye West kicked off the buzz by wearing the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 in public in May 2018. Wrangling up a host of family members and celebrities to don the silhouette created a stir among fans and collectors leading up to the shoe's December 2018 launch. For the second colorway's release, Kanye and adidas partnered with youths operating lemonade stands to sell the Geode version. This charitable effort drew lots of publicity as West made appearances at various lemonade stands, and raised funds for the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
