adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Yecheil”

Kanye West‘s master plans for the adidas Yeezy line’s slate of holiday releases are beginning to be revealed, and the latest pair to pop up is a bold new take on the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 dubbed the “Yecheil.” These curiously-monikered Yeezy shoes, the name means “May God Live” in Hebrew, are a striking departure from previously-used palettes, as they do away with the line’s normal earth-based hues in favor of a four-color mix. A simple black Primeknit serves as the base, but it’s then accented with substantial quantities of white & tan thread, applied everywhere except the side stripe. There’s also a dashing dose of bright red present on the throat, tongue, and medial side. Even the sockliner gets in on the fun, throwing in a little extra tan for good measure. Down below, a smoky black midsole with white Boost cushioning completes the look.
