The top Yeezy kicks all cost a pretty penny. But which ones are the best?
Keep reading to find out which colorway stands out as number one in 2019.
Kanye West Colorways
A colorway is an arrangement of colors. And in the fashion world, it applies to styles or designs that are available in those colors.
From his changing hair color to the way he compliments colors and tones in his attire, Kanye has been named a master at mixing colors.
And whether he uses dark oranges and reds or faded pastels, the color in his collections are always cohesive. Plus, it’s arguable that he’s the one who brought muted tones and colors back into the world of fashion, at least in this decade.
Where Did It All Begin?
In 2009, Kanye and Louis Vuitton collaborated to release the “Mr. Hudson.” The color name was “Zen gray/pink,” not as exciting as the succinct color names he uses now.
It was a fresh shoe—a mix between a daring boat shoe and “The Never Ending Story.” But it was very different than his shoes from the last few years.
Kanye West has always wanted to mix luxury fashion with basketball. In the same year, he released the “Don” and the “Jasper” with Louis Vuitton. And those two pairs of kicks did just that, though they were maybe a little too colorful, especially compared to his modern aesthetic.
When Kanye teamed up with adidas, his true style began to form and shine. While his first few colorways, like “Copper” and “Black/green” weren’t as exciting or as cohesive as those of today, the design of the shoe was more of what we see in today’s Yeezys.
Shoes like the “Zebra” and the “Red October,” hit the nail right on the head. The Zebra is both classic and innovative, and almost anyone could pull it off with the right outfit.
The Red Octobers are the perfect combination of sporty and futuristic. They were also a testament to Kanye’s “trendsetter” reputation as a plethora of bright-colored futuristic shoes popped up everywhere, after the Red October’s release.
What Are Some of the Best 2019 Releases That Are Already Out?
The adidas Yeezy 500 “Bone White” has only been out for a few days. It’s also part of a collection that has sizes for the whole family, and for that reason, it’s a favorite.
The Bone White shoe is both elegant and modern. It’s perfect for this year as we continue to see chunky yet refined kicks everywhere.
The Yeezy Boost 700 “Wave Runner” has hit the shelves for the third time! And this shoe also comes in sizes fit for the whole family. It’s much more colorful than the Bone White, but once again, Kanye nails the color combination perfectly.
The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2s are similar to the huarache style we’ve seen before, but Kanye puts his own twist on the shoe. For this style, the “Synth” color is both fashionable and modern, as that faded pink/rose gold look continues to stay in the limelight.
The “Black” model is another fan favorite, as you can never go wrong with all-black kicks. If you’re a runner, you can go with the “Reflective” or the “Glow” model and stay safe on those late-night runs.
What Are Some of the 2019 Releases That We’re All Still Waiting For?
The newer the shoe, the better the reviews. It rings true with Kanye’s journey as a designer. It seems as though his designs just get better and better.
The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Cloud White Reflective” shoe could be described as beautiful. The reflective fibers are woven throughout the fabric in great detail that is both minimal and elegant. Set to release in September, the “Citrin” and “Cloud White” colors are equally as dope.
The adidas Yeezy 500 “Stone” and “Soft Vision” kicks are the perfect “his and hers” sneakers for fall. While these colorways haven’t been released yet, other versions of the shoe have received lots of praise for their gum soles and comfortable cushion fit.
Which Colorways Are Ranked the Highest?
The Bone White and Utility Black colors are fan favorites because they’re so classic. Leave it to Kanye to make room in all his collections for the colors you can wear day after day. All of the reflective kicks, especially the Synth, are also making waves.
But the number one rated shoe has got to be the Glow.
It’s perfectly modern with its neon expression, and it’s glow in the dark! You can’t go wrong with glow in the dark shoes, ever. They’re perfect to wear during the day, to the club, or for a night out on the town.
Some of the Top Yeezy Shoes Are Still to Come
From new basketball shoes to an upcoming clog, Kanye has lots more to offer in his upcoming collections.
The top Yeezy shoes are different for everyone, but many people will agree that the Glow and the reflective styles are at the top of the list.
