Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, you already know that the next Kanye West adidas sneaker drops this Saturday. Just like anything with the Yeezy name attached to it, the upcoming “Pirate Black” adidas Yeezy 350 Boost is ultra hyped and ultra limited, so the dash to grab a pair is guaranteed to be a serious ordeal. If you’re a sneaker fan that doesn’t buy into all the hype and doesn’t want to mess with the raffles, RSVP’s, and other madness of trying to procure the Yeezys this weekend, or in case you just strike out on grabbing your pair, we’ve compiled a list of eleven other excellent adidas sneakers currently on the market that are more than suitable alternatives to the elusive Yeezy Boost. Another bonus to these Yeezy alternatives? You’ll look like you actually have your own sense of style instead of following the crowd.
Y-3 Qasa High “Triple Black”
If you’re trying to go even higher end than the Yeezy, adidas has you covered with Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 line of stylish silhouettes that seem to be getting more popular every season. The ninja-like Qasa High in all black is arriving now at Y-3 retailers like Footpatrol or on eBay.
Tubular X Knit
This new silhouette from adidas is almost a hybrid of the high and low Yeezy Boost models, with its uniquely shaped high-top cut, woven textile upper, and ribbed midsole. They’re also going to be a little easier on your wallet than anything with the Yeezy name attached to it. Find them now at shops like asphalt gold.
