A story that is not new...
We had heard about the leak last year through a post from the famous Yeezy Mafia account about an upcoming restocking but the buzz was quickly cut off by Jon Wexle, former Adidas executive and now Vice President at Yeezy. In 2017, that sneaker community was much narrower than it is today and far less democratized. Thus, some never had the chance to own a pair of Yeezy Original such as the mythical colorway that is the Bred v2 because of the rarity of the production. But now, more than ever, the rapper from calabasas, Kanye West has found a way to fill the gap for his fans around the world through a massive restocking of the model. We can certainly expect many people to be able to get a pair for the second or first time, however, given the extreme hype, we shouldn't count on it too much either.
An iconic design: the foundation of the sneaker community
The Yeezy 350 V2 Bred is certainly one of the most iconic Yeezy ever released. The sneaker features a black primeknit upper with a matching TPU midsole on the bottom, which houses the Boost technologyThe midsole has a TPU midsole, which is popular with fans for its indefinable comfort. The dark design of the sneaker can then shine through the original "SPLY-350" The dark design of the sneaker can then shine through the original, contrasting red lettering on the lateral side of the pair, which harmonizes perfectly with the red stripe on the heel tab. Even years later, and probably hundreds of Yeezy's later, the edition Bred is still one of the most coveted and deserves all the hype it gets. So ready to battle through that bit of nostalgia that has us all looking forward to more than ever?
This reiteration is most certainly the ideal Christmas gift for all the amateurs of sneakers.
