While Kanye West has overstayed his welcome on Twitter, news of more Yeezys dropping is always welcome. Adidas is giving everyone another chance to cop the coveted Pirate Black Yeezy Boost 350 with a re-release on February 19. In other Yeezy Boost 750 news, Kanye was recently spotted rocking an unreleased colorway of the hightop model. The suede bares a striking resemblance to the Peyote Yeezy Boost 950s, with a wintery gum sole. There’s no word whether these will be available for purchase, but with the increasing amount of 350 Boosts releasing, it’s about time the 750 Boost gets more love. Read More
Turns out that Drake, the gracious host of this year’s All-Star Weekend, is also an amazing gift giver. While enjoying the frigid cold in Toronto over the past few days, Drizzy blessed 2 Chainz with two pairs of exclusive “Kentucky Blue” OVO Jordan 8s. Drake first rocked them on Saturday night while enjoying the epic slam dunk contest. The pair was reported to be a one-of-one, but since 2 Chainz copped some, hopefully the Kentucky Blues will see an official release. Read More
In honor of Kobe Bryant‘s upcoming retirement, Michael Jordan gifted him with two sets of every signature Air Jordan. While the white set is likely to be on display in Bryant’s home, the black (also in Bryant’s size – US14) was auctioned off via eBay for charity. The auction only lasted a day, beginning on Saturday, February 13 and concluding on Sunday, February 14. In the end, there were a total of 37 bids; the set sold for an astounding $240,100. Hopefully the lucky owner celebrates the new purchase by sharing a bunch of high-res images with the sneaker community. Read More
Adidas owned the Grammys. A$AP Rocky rocked a classic pair of Stan Smiths, while A$AP Yam’s mother accompanied him down the red carpet. DJ Khaled proved that another major key is that black Yeezy Boost 750s look pretty good with a suit. Justin Bieber took the stage to perform in a pair of Ultra Boosts and Pharrell stunted in a pair of unreleased adidas that we previously spotted him rocking during a shopping trip on Rodeo. The only thing missing was Kanye West, but his presence would’ve probably led to another epic Taylor Swift moment. Read More.
