the fresh silhouette manages to retain the line’s signature ethos while adding a vast amount of new detailing and styling as well. Although both uppers still feature a full Primeknit construction, they’re much more pared-down, replacing the structured collar of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 with a more sock-like iteration that’ll grip the ankle, and adding sizeable midfoot holes above a wide translucent stripe for ventilation. There’s a new print to be had on both colorways as well, one that’s almost digi camo-esque in its abstract stylings, while a single stitch runs the full length of the toebox and throat, coming to a head at the collar.
Although the uppers do indeed present a fresh new look, the midsole is unquestionably the most different piece, as every inch of it has been re-worked. Gone are the ridged details from the past two Yeezy 350 models, replaced instead by a smooth semi-translucent shell that’s more basketball-inspired. The outsole also opts for a traditional herringbone traction pattern, and is cut out both in the heel and the forefoot to show the Boost cushioning and offer extra flexibility.
