After last weekend’s YEEZY 700 V3 “Alvah,” Kanye West‘s adidas YEEZY line has presented a YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Linen.” The first 350 V2 release since March’s “Cinder,” the “Linen” is set to kick off West and adidas‘s post-Easter drops in style.
Where the “Linen” truly differentiates itself from the ever-expanding pack of YEEZY BOOST 350 V2s is its two-tone detailing. The Primeknit upper is dressed in a soft tan hue befitting of the material it’s named after, but unlike most other 350 V2 releases the embellishments are not tonal. Post-dyed monofilament side stripes, collar trim and sockliners are all presented in a medium gray shade, and some early images have indicated that there may be a reflective stripe-equipped version as well.
The “Linen” elects to not equip a heel tab, a detail — or lack thereof — that lets the stark juxtaposition of tan and gray speak loudly. Milky rubber midsoles house a full-length BOOST footbed, with heels, toeboxes and outsoles adding an ever-so-slight pink tint to complete the look.
