It is no surprise that Kanye West’s Yeezy Boost 350s in Moonrock are already sold out after November 14’s extremely anticipated release of the new colour-way. Selected retailers that stocked these trainers used tactics such as competitions and raffles giving people the chance to win a free pair of the trendy trainers. Some customers were even instructed to wait in line days before the release to ensure they walked away with a pair.
According to Footwearnews.com, the US retailer ‘Barneys’ announced on Twitter that they had sold out of the Moonrock 350s on their website at 10:01am, after being launched only a minute before at 10am.
The Kardashian clan have been seen already rocking the new 350s along with others such as rapper Fabolous and former Arsenal Academy player Brooklyn Beckham. The trainers have a lightweight, woven upper and has a sock-like fit to provide optimum comfort. If you are willing to fork out £150 (or $200 if you are in the United States) for the Yeezy Boost 350s, then the comfort of the trainers should be second to none.
The Yeezy Boost 350s are arguably the most popular shoe from the collection, with a similar erratic reaction to both the release of the all black colour-way in August and the new Moonrock colour-way. It seems as though consumers are willing to purchase anything that the rap icon releases, which is inevitably a win-win situation.
<a href="http://youngpromag Find Out More.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/yeezy-boost-350-moonrock-lg2.jpg”>The Moonrock 350s are the final release from the Yeezy Season 1 collection, however, this does not mean Adidas and Kanye West’s partnership is over. Adidas posted a picture on their Instagram in September, of the Yeezy Boost 750s in an all black colour-way, captioned “Coming Soon.” A release date has not been confirmed as of yet but there is definitely much more to come, and you will gradually see a number of rappers and sport stars rocking the Yeezy collection.
