Two aces to start with - adidas Yeezy Boost 700 "Salt" and adidas "Inertia" from Kanye West!
Although initially the Yeezy sneakers were reserved only for real and wealthy fans of luxurious shoes, as evidenced by their high price and limited number, now they are much more affordable and almost everyone can get the honor of wearing sneakers designed by an American rapper, Kanye West. Recently, adidas announced that sales of the Yeezy models increased by 600% in the last quarter of 2018. These figures unanimously support Kanye West's thesis from a few years ago when he started that all the customers wanting to expand their collection of shoes with the model designed by him would ultimately have the opportunity to do so. Consequently, adidas Yeezy Boost 700 "Salt" appeared on the market at the beginning of 2019. In the case of this particular model, the famous rapper and designers of the adidas brand went for one of the light shades of grey falling gently into beige. A sole inspired by basketball shoes popular in the 90s and early 2000s is very characteristic for adidas Yeezy Boost 700 "Salt". The whole construction of the model is a classic combination of natural suede, mesh and leather, although the design itself is no longer so classic. Due to the BOOST cushioning which guarantees excellent amortization and reduces the fatigue of the foot during wearing, it can be undoubtedly stated that the high level of comfort is another advantage of these sneakers. As it turns out, this is not the end of the novelties from Kanye West and adidas because this spring another product of their collaboration will make its debut on the market - it’s time to meet the colorful version of Yeezy 700 Boost, adidas Yeezy Boost 700 "Inertia". The multi-layer upper of this model is a combination of colors such as grey, blue and creamy. The whole sole looks like sculpted and its light orange elements will definitely catch an eye of every Sneakerhead. Combining a mesh layer with grey suede elements turned out to create a very intriguing composition. All of these elements give us original sneakers in the style of Kanye West with an interesting design providing comfort and multifunctionality. Guessing from the ingenuity of the rapper, Sneakerheads surely should be prepared for other surprising ideas. The only question is what will Kanye West come up with the next time?
