What's up guys and welcome to a new segment called "Things that suck, but still make Kanye West millions of dollars". If you'll look at the image above, the new Yeezy sneakers are pretty much slippers. They are obviously all black with the patented "boost" outsole. The upper is a black knit with little hints of grey in the stitching. In my opinion these things are the definition of hype, and over-hype all in one. They are charging $200 for what probably took 10 bucks to make, all because Kanye's name is tied to them. I don't often take stands against sneakers, but these are ugly and are thriving only based on hype. They look like the Nike Roshe runs took a crap, rolled around in money, and this is what was they ended up with. I mean honestly, you can get sneakers of equal if not greater quality for half the price with individualized color schemes, and unique designs at Nike. I'm not a Nike over everything guy, but I'm also not the biggest fan of Adidas as you might be able to tell from this article, however, I have owned their products in the past. They are good at one thing, making things lightweight. Making things lightweight does come at a cost, though. If you don't believe me ask Derrick Rose, Kevin Ware, Robert Griffin III. These are all athletes who have suffered extreme injuries associated with Adidas products. These Yeezy sneakers are no different, they are incredibly lightweight and airy. I just think they swagger-jacked Nike's already wonderful product: the Roshe run. It's the classic Iphone vs. every other phone debate, you can bash it all you want Samsung, BUT WHY ARE YOU STILL DESIGNING YOUR PHONES EXACTLY LIKE APPLE? That was off-topic and I apologize, so, if you've made it through this article and have maintained an unbiased opinion, I applaud you and want to hear what you think about the Yeezy Boost 350s. So, if you do snag a pair of these on Saturday, drop a comment below or hit up the IG account @Sneakerbred_.
