I always hear Yeezy here, Yeezy there, Yeezy everywhere - but what exactly is it all about? Kanye West, the husband of Kim Kardashian, created the Yeezys together with adidas. But is this now a sneaker just for men? Can women wear them? How do I get a Yeezy and why is it so hyped? You can find out all about it in this blog: What is the adidas Yeezy - a story for women!

Next to sneakers of the high top brands like Louis Vuitton, Versace or Gucci, the adidas Yeezy is a real gem on the feet of many stars and celebrities. And the retail price is not that high! Let's take a closer look behind the scenes:

Where does the adidas Yeezy hype come from?

First, next to the hype of the Yeezy sneaker itself, there is hype about the person behind it. Mr. West has a lot of fans and followers and it is obvious that they are definitely after his design. Besides, styles are often copied by musicians, actors or other artists and how does that work better than with their own design?

Another reason for the hype are the strictly limited editions of the Yeezy models. These shoes have the absolute promistatus! So not everyone always gets a Yeezy. And that is the reason why they can often be resold on the internet for more than double or triple the amount of money. Because with this shoe you will always be looked at on the street or in the club and get a lot of attention.

Of course there is also a third reason for the hype. We all still know from our grandparents or even parents that stamps or coins are collected. Well, and today it is the same with sneakers. And this special sneaker from Kanye West is just right for that. It is a good collector's item and can be worth quite a bit depending on the model.

How do the different adidas Yeezy Boost models differ?

Meanwhile there are numerous different models of the Yeezys. Moreover, the current time can almost be called the Yeezy season. Why? Because almost every week a new Yeezy drops on the market. If that's so good, let's put that aside. The hype is decreasing a bit, but still the sneakers are selling like hot cakes!

The most popular Yeezy silhouette is the Yeezy Boost 350 V2. The 350 releases are also the most frequent ones, which is why there are already many different colorways. Other popular models include the Yeezy Boost 380 or the Yeezy Boost 700. The Yeezy Boost 750, for example, is not the most popular silhouette of the Yeezy family, but that may simply be because it is not yet available in so many different versions.

If you want to learn more about the different Yeezy models, you should have a look at Le's blog. Probs to him, because he has taken a lot of trouble to introduce all models to you.

Which Yeezy is the most popular?

This question is relatively difficult to answer, because it is always in the eye of the beholder. Nevertheless, there are some models that are significantly more expensive to resell than others. Let's have a look at them together.

By the way: If you wonder why there are Yeezy models that have a higher resale value than others. That's because the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 silhouette is the most popular of all Yeezy models. In the beginning the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 were strictly limited! Kanye West deliberately created a hype and due to the hype, as well as the limited number of pieces, the resell price increased! Kanye's goal is to make the Yeezy accessible to everyone, so the sneakers are now mass-produced. This leads to a decrease in price. But there are always exceptions like the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Static Black (Reflective)/Triple Black (last shoe), the 'All-Black' colorway has always been popular with the sneaker community. Due to the popularity, the demand as well as the hype and therefore the reseller value increases! Enough business studies and economics and to the models:

How do I get my first Yeezy?

Finally, my 'What is this adidas Yeezy - a story for women' blog is about how to get a Yeezy. Getting a yeezy is not as easy as it sounds. At best you can get one on the release date, because here you only pay €220 for your gem. Often there are raffles on this date - if you get a raffle, the right to buy the Yeezy is raffled off. You can participate at adidas and other retailers. Just have a look at our Release Calendar, here you can find all retailers where you can buy the Yeezy.

Then you just have to register with the raffle. You often do this with your e-mail address and then enter all the other data that the retailer needs for the purchase. Then you can only hope that you are one of the lucky people to receive the Yeezy. You can also try stores such as Foot Locker. On their website there is always a kind of queue when you come through and your size is still available - congrats!

Well, that's fine, but if you've chosen a yeezy that's already on the market and there's no re-release in sight, you'll have to go for the more expensive version. On sites like Klekt or StockX you will find the Yeezy of your choice. But you have to be very careful and compare prices. Don't let yourself be ripped off and try to get proof from platforms such as Ebay or similar platforms that the Yeezys are original and unworn. With reseller platforms such as Klekt or StockX, you don't need to worry, as the authenticity is tested in advance.

Yep, and that's about it. It can be very easy to get a Yeezy. It always depends on how much money you want to spend on these sneakers. Finally I have a little video for you. Here I present you my first Yeezys, which I could actually get at an adidas raffle. ?

That's it!

I hope you enjoyed my 'What is this adidas Yeezy - a story for women' blog. And again, to make it really clear: Yeezys are for everyone! Be as happy as your partner or friends about these nice kickz and rock the streets with them! In our Sneaker Collection you will find more hyped sneakers, like an Air Jordan.
