Do we even need to introduce the Yeezy brand? Of course, we do not! However, such is not the case for this new Carbon colorway! Kanye came up with yet another already iconic (and sold out everywhere) colorway: Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Carbon.
What is all the fuss about?
The "Carbon" YEEZY Boost 350 V2 features a re-engineered Primeknit upper and gum sole unit with Boost cushioning. It also showcases adidas YEEZY branding on the insoles, and black rope laces.
What is the carbon colorway?
This new iteration of the iconic Yeezy style features a black and grey Primeknit upper with contrasting patterns woven into the material. This colorway also features a solid black monofilament side stripe. This adds a barrier between the light grey and blue woven design near the collar and directional motif near the midsole.
Compared to previous styles and colorway, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Carbon is a much sober palette and shape wise. Gone is the hell pull. This design has a sleeker look. Black laces and a yellow-semi transparent ribbed midsole with embedded Boost cushioning complete the look.
The knit is however quite intricate. Two swatches contrast one another in both shading and pattern. The top half is very straightforward as it uses two light grey variations. Underfoot, the tread is made separate to its midsole as evident in its marginally darker gum tome.
Why did the sneakers change name?
This new colorway was previously referred to as Asriel. However, it was met with a huge backlash as it refers to the Angel of Death in Islam. Many called for a boycott of the sneaker after the name was initially revealed. As a result, Kanye and Yeezy decided to change it to “Carbon”.
When was it released?
The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Carbon were released on October 2nd, 2020. The pair is available in adult, kids and infant sizing.
Where can I buy those Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Carbon?
Barely out and the Carbon colorway is already sold out everywhere. We should not be surprised! This happens every time Kanye West brings a new colorway to the sneaker market. Yeezys are always amongst one of the most coveted sneakers.
