The “Carbon” pair was previously seen back in April, but was named the “Asriel.” This name is highly controversial as it’s the name of the Angel of Death in Islam, leading to huge amounts of backlash that called for the sneaker to be boycotted as it was disrespectful to the Islamic religion.
Today, the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 in “Carbon” has appeared online. While there were pairs floating around the Internet with a blacked-out BOOST sole unit, the official pair sports a light gum-hued one. Inside that is a full-length BOOST component, offering support and comfort all day long.
Furthermore, the “Carbon” pair sports a re-engineered Primeknit upper that combines lots of small sections, bringing checkered knit, a reverse knit, and flat knit panels in colors such as black, gray, and cream together. The pair is finished with a set of black rope laces, a black liner, and a black insole printed with blue dual-branding.
Take a look at the adidas Originals YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Carbon” in the gallery above, and pick up a pair from adidas’ website and select retailers worldwide when it drops on October 2 for £179.95 GBP (approx. $230 USD). The pair will also drop in kid’s and infant’s sizes.
