The history of the Yeezy Boost 350

Since stepping into the spotlight, Ye quickly made his acquaintance with the fashion scene and especially the sneaker community. Just as we still know the rapper, he was not afraid of bold choices in the early 2000s. Indeed, Yeezy's journey began not with adidas, but with their major competitor Nike.

In 2009, the Air Yeezy was introduced to the public, but as Ye and Nike couldn't work out financially, West decided to switch to adidas in 2013. In 2014, fans waited a year in suspense, but there it was, at New York Fashion week, the Yeezy Boost 350 debuted with the 'Turtle Dove' colourway. Our community was forever changed.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2

In 2016, the second version of the Boost 350 was released. Some differences can be seen between the V1 and the V2. For example, the V2 uses a Primeknit upper with a chunkier look and the second version includes a stripe on the side of the sneaker.

Besides the differences in the upper, the soles also differ. The sole of the V2 has a slightly more transparent sole, is a bit wider compared to the first version and finally consists of two parts.

How do you clean the Yeezy Boost 350?

Every sneakerhead has their own way of keeping their pairs fresh, yet it is generally advised not to put your sneakers in the washing machine to avoid damage.

The upper of the 350 comes in a PrimeKnit mesh material, it is therefore inevitable that stains will appear on the fabric. It is wise to spray your sneakers with a dirt- and water-repellent spray. Then, if a stain really did appear, we recommend using mild detergent combined with a damp cloth to gently wipe away the stain.

Are the sneakers comfortable?

It can be confidently said that the Yeezy Boost 350 V1 and V2 are extremely comfortable. This is because the Yeezy sneaker uses a full PrimeKnit upper that creates the feel of a kind of sock.

The midsole, as the name suggests, uses adidas Boost technology. The sole provides a soft and resilient feel.

Finally, you could argue that the second version of the Boost 350 is more comfortable than the first version. This is because the V2 is a newer version of the V1.
