Taking an L on a hyped Yeezy release can be heartbreaking. No matter how early you get up or how many devices you use, copping is never, ever guaranteed, and this was certainly the case for the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Butter’, which sold out literally within minutes. That being said, we’ve compiled a list of five fire sneakers to help ease the pain of the L you took over the weekend. We’re here for you, sneakerheads.


adidas Originals POD-S3.1 'Core Black'

The adidas Originals POD-S3.1 ‘Core Black’ is the latest innovation from the Three Stripes. Featuring a sock like upper, a thick white Boost cushion sits on the heel portion, while an EVA foam unit makes up the other half of the midsole. The NMD killer? Only time will tell, but for now, we’re absolutely hyped for more colourways to release!


 adidas Originals Yung-1 'Chalk White'

adidas Originals Yung-1 ‘Chalk White’

Released late last month, the adidas Originals Yung-1 ‘Chalk White’ has quickly become one of the Three Stripes’ most popular silhouettes. Painted in a unique combination of red, white, and blue, this chunky sneaker is a lot more wearable compared to other dad sneakers. Boasting a Falcon Dorf upper from the late ’90s, a newly revamped sole prepares this creps for the hustle and bustle of everyday life.


adidas Ultra Boost Clima 'Triple Black'

Easily one of the most underrated sneakers of 2018, the adidas Ultra Boost Clima ‘Triple Black’ mixes the innovative tooling technology of the ClimaCool with the silhouette of the Ultra Boost for an unbeatable combination. An extremely breathable Primeknit is present for the ultimate summer shoe experience, and to add to this, the sneaker sits on top of a bed of oh-so-comfy Boost for additional comfort and a smooth stride.


adidas Originals Continental 80 'Footwear White'

adidas Originals Continental 80 ‘Footwear White’

The adidas Yeezy Calabasas Powerphase was one of the most low key sneakers of last year. The retro feel and very simple styling made it accessible to both sneakerheads and fashionistas, and the adidas Originals Continental 80 ‘Footwear White’ follows its footsteps. Utilising the exact same construction, this clean sneak is crafted from supple leather and is a must cop for all sneakerheads.


adidas Yeezy 500 'Utility Black'

adidas Yeezy 500 ‘Utility Black’

While you can’t actually cop the adidas Yeezy 500 ‘Utility Black’ right now, we thought it was worth mentioning to show that there’s still hope on the horizon. Releasing very soon, the ‘Utility Black’ is the third colourway of the chunky shoe, and it’s by far the most popular.

Constructed of a combination of mesh, suede, and leather, this murdered out crep is as unique as it gets. Although it doesn’t use adidas’ Boost technology, it sits atop a thick adiPrene midsole which is equally as comfortable, if not more so.
