As the hi-vis colors come out for the summer, adidas seems to be taking an alternative route for its color inspo with the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Black Reflective” and “Black Static Non-Reflective.” Respectively, the photo-reflective iteration is trading at a higher price than its matte counterpart on StockX, with the average sale price being $954 and $562 USD.
From a cursory view, it would seem that both editions appear aesthetically analogous to one another. Each features an all black colorization that works its way from the BOOST sole housing to splay across the Primeknit upper and laces. Even the semi-transparent stripe and the red trim on the heel tab are shared. However, what separates each shoe is the embedding of a 3M material that gives off a photo-reflective finish when exposed to light.
