Last year’s adidas Yeezy 950 release proved to be the somewhat sleeper of Kanye’s first run at retail, coming in at a high price point and ditching sneaker styling for that of a duck boot build. While the 950 has grown in appeal since it’s original first look, it does lack something that the other adidas Yeezys relied on: Boost cushioning.
As Kanye took to Twitter and then to Yeezy Season 3 to unveil the Yeezy 1050, we’re happy to report that the good folks at adidas Originals have confirmed that the Yeezy 1050 is not only an adidas launch (there was some speculation as to who would produce the Boots in future seasons) but it also packs Boost technology.
Like the 350s and 750s, the Boost technology is encapsulated. Unlike said models, we see it hiding in a chunky, heartier sole. This is good news not just for Yeezy fans but also for Boost fans as we once again see the technology shifting shape and taking to new structures. In addition to Boost benefits, the adidas Yeezy Boost 1050 also features Gore-Tex construction as previewed by Kanye.
Does this make the adidas Yeezy Boost 1050 a potential purchase for you? Let us know in the comments section and big thanks to adidas Originals for the insight.
