As Following up one of their most coveted silhouettes currently on the market, adidas Yeezy has gone and put an end to the 350 v2 though only in namesake, continuing its spirit with a new and improved Yeezy Boost 380 whose “Alien” colorway marks the beginnings of what will likely turn into a long-running series of releases.
Ethos, energy, and aesthetics are all translated over as knit uppers bear distinction though in a styling akin to many of its iconic predecessors. Grey tones, a favorite for the line-up in general, make for a fitting debut in a patterning much more intricate: these, which separate by way of darker and lighter shades, form an almost Rorschach-esque design. Laces stay neutral in compliment same as the ankle of the core construction itself while luminescent greens at a tinge of the radioactive along the entire sole unit.
After rereleasing the universally loved “Black” v2 just this past Friday, adidas Yeezy is already preparing for the end all be all of their holiday season line-up: the Yeezy Boost 380 “Alien.” Once poised to be the successor to the 350, the silhouette’s likeness is not entirely lost with the change of its namesake: general shape still bears resemblance to the brand’s opus with bottoms doing the same though in a much bulkier, rounder appearance.
First dressed almost entirely in a neutral tone, the entire kit is essentially a starting point for what is likely to be a batch of glow-in-the-dark schemes, dark, triple blacks, and any of their assortment of earth tones. The upper constructions themselves, though, leave little to be desired for a newer release with chaotic perforations along the sides and an all-over print reminiscent of a camo pattern pushing the model into a realm of its own.
