The YEEZY BOOST 380 “Alien” is the center of much debate: many hate, and just as many think its great — but one thing is for sure, it will sell out in seconds when it hits global retailers on December 12th.
The pair, which was originally labeled as the 350 v3, has been in works for years and arrives with a completely overhauled silhouette. Sleeker, higher-cut and an all-new woven pattern make the silhouette distinctly different from is predecessors. While full-length BOOST cushioning tech remains, the shape of the sole unit remains similar but more in-line with a jogger; it’s less bulbous, higher cut in the rear and features a higher toe rise. The signature exposed BOOST outsole remains, although it too takes on an entirely new pattern. The upper, too. is overhauled, with a high-cut, snug-fit ankle collar, and an all-new textured weave, which appears tighter than the previous 350 versions. Translucent panels still hit the shoe’s vamp, but it’s now thicker, shorter and abstract in shape. The sneaker’s added height also adds in an extra two lace loops.
The debut pair, aptly dubbed “Alien”, sports a textured upper reminiscent of landscapes of planets yet traveled. It arrives in tonal whites and greys, with the milky translucent midsole overlays revealing a water-damaged like effect. The pair made its debut on November 16th on YEEZY Supply with a midnight drop — but for those that missed out (there were a lot of us — we’ll all have to try our hands at its global release on December 12th. adidas Originals has just officially announced its list of exclusive retailers (listed below) so be sure to check out how each store will be distributing the pairs come next week — most will likely be raffles, so make sure you check back into this article for direct links to the draws.
