We’re not gonna lie: everyone knows the Yeezy Boost. Don’t play ignorant, you know damn well it’s the new trendy shoe since 2015, designed by Kanye West in collaboration with Adidas. You’ve seen it all over Instagram and your Facebook news feed. Don’t lie.


Since the latest model of the Yeezy Boost 350 was released on the 24th of September, I’d like to express myself on the whole collection, but also to let the readers know what the other members of Hokuzy think. First because people who know me know I’m a day one Kanye West fan; some people even think I’m his manager or a distant brother.

(Yeezy if you’re reading this it’s NOT too late, I’m looking for a 6 months internship beginning in January, so if your company DONDA is recruiting I’m fully available).

And second because it got worse since he’s been dating Kim Kardashian. Of armenian origin like her, people think we’re cousins… “But aren’t y’all armenian people cousins ?”

So, you know, if I don’t write at least one article about him, people might think I’m going insane.

And also because even if we share many common points in the squad, the opinions about the Yeezy Boost are quite different and very funny !

Anyway. It’s been almost two years since the Yeezy Boost hit the market, instagram posts and the sneaker culture. Before he started his collab with Adidas, I mainly focused on the music side of Kanye. I had no interest for everything around. But things changed when I started paying attention to his collections; no one can escape the famous Yeezy Boos 350. For me, the best design is and will always be the “Pirate Black”. That’s the only one I tried to purchase online. Everything was ready: my alarm to be on my computer early, fast internet, my computer fully charged and I was already spamming the F5 key to refresh the page.

I remember it as if it were yesterday. It was the first design available online and my first experience of “virtual queue” on a website. Suddenly, I’m on page that says I’ll be redirect to the product’s page anytime soon. 10 minutes later, the page loads before my very eyes, and I keep telling myself I’ll soon be rewarded.

“Almost all the sizes were available, I must be in the first ones” I’m thinking. I take my pair, fill everything up, and I get to the check up page. Then confirm my purchase, and that’s when the drama starts: errors everywhere saying that the size is not available, when it’s my bag. I go back on the product page and I do it again, and again, and again… I start panicking, I give up and after a 30-minute fight (yeah it looks like the final boss of a video game), I find myself on the homepage of the Adidas store with a “Sorry ! Next one will be the right one !”. Not.

Since then, I didn’t pay much attention to the drops that followed. The Pirate Black one was in August while I was on vacation, perfect timing. But what I really liked was that it was a limited quantity, I wouldn’t see many people wearing those shoes. It was very popular and at the same time stocks were very low. But now I think that too many designs were released and with more and more stocks at each drop. It’s a good think to make it more available, but you don’t have the thrill of success when you succeed in getting a pair anymore.

Yes it’s true that online, with VPNs and that kind of stuff that I know now, you have more chance to get your hands on several pairs very easily, but I think there’s no challenge in getting one this way. Anyway, since the release of the V2, I can’t wait for a black colorway. I find the V2 more interesting in terms of shape and design than the V1. And more photogenic.

I’m done with what I think, let’s see what the squad thinks.


Alexx

Do you/Did you have a pair of Yeezy Boost ? And which design do you prefer: 350 or 750 ?
I had the 350 “Oxford Tan” that I sold after having worn them quite a lot ! And I prefer the 750 by far

What’s your personal opinion about the Yeezy ?
A design inspired by Nike’s Roshe Run (for teh 350) but  greatly reworked and very comfortable, but not very sturdy…

What do you think about the hype around the latest design, the V2 ?
I don’t like that coat of paint just to show you have Yeezy on your feet.

What would be YOUR perfect Yeezy Boost design ?
Black “Primeknit” fabric would be cool, with a black gum sole for the 350. The 750 is already perfect.


Inginator

Do you/Did you have a pair of Yeezy Boost ? And which design do you prefer: 350 or 750 ?
Nothing, and I’m cool with both !

What’s your personal opinion about the Yeezy ?
It’s okay, simple design that works, but nothing more.

What do you think about the hype around the latest design, the V2 ?
Starfoullah

What would be YOUR perfect Yeezy Boost design ?
These are tough questions, bro !


Hangzus

Do you/Did you have a pair of Yeezy Boost ? And which design do you prefer: 350 or 750 ?
No and I prefer the 350, especially the V2

What’s your personal opinion about the Yeezy ?
It’s an original design with its own style, but it’s not worth Nike or Adidas in terms of streetwear. They’re more luxury sneakers, as Givenchy does, than real street style.

What do you think about the hype around the latest design, the V2 ?
For me it’s the best design in the Yeezy Boost collection. But it’s normal thing for people t be hyped about it. All the media are scanning Kanye’s deeds and actions, so when he releases a new shoe design, everyone’s sucking his big black Bamako motherfucking dick. Sorry.

What would be YOUR perfect Yeezy Boost design ?
The V2 with the orange line is just PER-FECT. MASH MASH 10/10 A+


Yubastard

Do you/Did you have a pair of Yeezy Boost ? And which design do you prefer: 350 or 750 ?
Nope, and 350 for me !

What’s your personal opinion about the Yeezy ?
350 Pirate Black everywhere, fuck the rest.

What do you think about the hype around the latest design, the V2 ?
BUNCH OF FUCKERS

What would be YOUR perfect Yeezy Boost design ?
A Yeezy Skateboarding that would be a mix between the Pirate Black and Denis Busenitz’s Adidas Skateboarding pro model. I’d sell a kidney. Or both kidneys.


Luidgi

Do you/Did you have a pair of Yeezy Boost ? And which design do you prefer: 350 or 750 ?
No, I’m not a big fan but I slightly prefer the 350.

What’s your personal opinion about the Yeezy ?
Good pair of sneakers but too expensive for what it is

What do you think about the hype around the latest design, the V2 ?
Too much

What would be YOUR perfect Yeezy Boost design ?
I’d find a Yeezy x Dr Martens collab really interesting !
