Following the "Cloud White" restock that plenty of you managed to cop, the equally-as-iconic Yeezy 450 "Dark Slate" is now set to return as well. Affectionately nicknamed the "Burnt Dumpling" by many sneakerheads, this "Triple Black" trainer originally released back in June and is still a must-buy for many of you.
First teased by Ye all the way back in 2018, the shark tooth-inspired Yeezy is the brainchild of legendary designer Steven Smith. Using a selection of straight edges and voluptuous curves, the result is an extremely experimental silhouette that is unlike anything the sneaker world has seen before. With a sock-like Primeknit upper that mimics the 350 V2 and a spiky EVA midsole underfoot, this is an adidas shoe like no other.
If you need the adidas Yeezy 450 "Dark Slate" in your winter rotation then you're in luck, as it's set to get a major restock this month. If you're brave enough to rock Ye's latest sneaker, then we've got your back, as we've compiled a few tips and tricks on how you can maximise your chances of getting a W!
Need the Yeezy 450 "Black" in your collection this season? Then the first thing that you need to do is follow us over on Twitter. By following @thesolesupplier, we'll update you on the latest news surrounding the release, while @thesolerestocks will keep you locked in with direct links and potential restock information as well.
No raffles have been announced for the "Dark Slate" just yet, but as soon as they do those Twitter accounts will inform you and they'll be posted right here. We predict that there won't be too many though, so to increase your chances you can try and enter with multiple accounts. With that said, it's worth noting that some retailers will take money off you first so make sure you have enough cash in the bank. This is a completely normal procedure and it's been implemented to prevent bots from applying too many times.
If you didn't already know, the adidas Yeezy 450 "Dark Slate" will be launching through adidas CONFIRMED and will restock sometime in December. If you don't already have it, then make sure you download the adidas CONFIRMED app on your phone right now! After a long hiatus, the beloved Three Stripes platform is back, and it's the best way to cop some of the world's most exclusive releases.
As soon as you have it on your phone, log in, verify your account, and enable push notifications and location services. It's worth noting that if you change any of these requirements after participating in a draw, it will lower your chances of winning - just a heads up!
If there's one thing that we just can't stress enough, it's how important it is to have all your payment and address info saved and verified. Better yet, let your bank know that it's actually you who's making the transaction just so they don't put it on hold.
If at this stage you still haven't copped, don't worry, as we've got another pretty good tip for you. Load up Instagram right now and follow every single retailer that sold the "Dark Slate" 450 as they're known to re-raffle unclaimed pairs. This happens with the majority of hyped drops, so there's a huge chance that you'll be able to cop here.
If that doesn't work out, then you've got two more options. You can either go on StockX and get a pair sent straight to your door, or head on over to The Sole Supplier's dedicated Buy & Sell Group on Facebook where you can buy, sell, and even exchange trainers for the pair you want. You probably won't get them for retail here but we've got some pretty good and honest members so don't be surprised if you do.
And that's that! If you follow every single one of these steps, you've got a pretty good chance of copping the adidas Yeezy 450 "Dark Slate" this month! Again, it will re-release in December, so make sure you keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for your best chance to cop. If you're not sure what size to get, take a look at our handy size guide here!
