After an array of YEEZY 350 releases this year, Kanye West and adidas step things up with a brand new silhouette as we head into 2020. The future-ready adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Alien” brings a new outer-space dimension to the much-hyped YEEZY, coming with features that have never been used before. It’s expected to hit select retailers on November 16, but StockX — the marketplace of things — is once again giving customers the opportunity to secure the latest sneaker early.
Breathing new life into the YEEZY catalog, the “Alien” boasts a previously-unseen perforated Primeknit upper, improving airflow to the wearer. The shoe’s lacing system is built into the Primeknit component, creating a super sleek all-in-one silhouette. Meanwhile, the Boost sole unit also gets a heftier upgrade, running the entire length of the shoe, paired up with a chunky rubber outsole.
Heralding the first of the 380 silhouettes, which could possibly completely replace the 350, this is likely to be a part of YEEZY history that fans and sneakerheads alike will laud. If you’ve been lucky enough to get your hands on the sneaker, but happen to be having second thoughts, StockX is always open for resale too.
