The Complete Yeezy Guide
Yeezy, a very common name to sneaker fans who are here to level up their sneaker game. But this too comes at a price. Today we are talking about a shoe range that has made its fan base with its classy appearance other than anything. Yeezy is for people who take their style very seriously.

Today we are going to look back and give you an overall idea & complete Yeezy guide about the Yeezy sneakers so that you know everything about your favourite sneaker range. As we all know Yeezy Trainers are completely sold out everywhere but you can still cop a pair from eBay.
It all started when the famous icon rapper Kanye West and adidas joined forces with one of the most influential sports giant adidas after the public fallout with Nike. The rapper turned designer signed a deal to collaborate with adidas back in 2013. It was still unknown to many but it all came to light when he was spotted with adidas Originals’ very own Nick Galway who has been greatly involved in high profile collab projects by adidas. And after that Kanye was also seen giving a visit to China most apparently related to production. After some time when the time was right, the co-branded Kanye West x adidas Yeezy silhouette made its debut in 2015. We also witnessed the history with the adidas Originals YEEZY Boost 750 making its way in the classy grey shade and the rest was history as the blockbuster sneaks like the 350, 350 V2 and the 950 came out back to back along with the vast lifestyle collection for men and women which included jewellery, accessories etc.
