Kanye West (now known as Ye) has been a firm fixture of the sneaker scene for years now. As well as working with BAPE and Jordan Brand, Ye’s Nike collabs earned legendary status, but it was hard to comprehend the cultural impact West actually had until he began his Yeezy collection with adidas in 2014. Although his first adidas Yeezy sneaker, the Yeezy Boost 350 "Turtle Dove", didn’t drop until a year later, it was worth the wait, as the newfound partnership changed the sneaker scene forever.
A number of silhouettes later, Yeezys are still just as popular as they were way back in 2015. Although some of the styles have evolved, they still sell out time and time again and see hugely inflated prices on the resale market. Realising that copping a Yeezy shoe was no easy feat, adidas set out to introduce Yeezy Day to try and make things fairer for fans.
The first Yeezy Day took place in 2019 and has since become an important part of every sneakerhead‘s calendar. Now, each year the summer months are rife with restock rumours, and speculations as to what will drop that year. If you‘re still a little unsure of what to expect from the day, or you want to know which sneakers will be dropping, then read on to find out more!
What Is Yeezy Day?
Yeezy Day is basically Christmas for Kanye West fans. Taking place over two days (one for the US, one for the Rest of World) on the adidas CONFIRMED app, the day always centres around a number of Yeezy restocks and releases, and there‘s normally some seriously sought-after silhouettes up for grabs. That means, that if you missed out on a particular shoe before and don‘t want to pay resell for a pair, this could well be your best shot at copping them at their retail value. If you;re unsure about how the adidas CONFIRMED app works, then don't panic, we've put any easy guide to the app together here.
When Is Yeezy Day?
Yeezy Day tends to take place over two days at the very start of August. In 2022, US drops will take place on the 2nd of August, whilst drops in the UK, Europe, China, Japan and Korea will take place on August 3rd.
