When Kanye West’s YEEZY line originally launched its first shoe, the YEEZY BOOST 750, not much people were really fans of the shoe... until the second silhouette dropped, the YEEZY BOOST 350 – and the first shoe’s resell value just kept rising up. It became one of the sought-after pairs in the market alongside the YEEZY BOOST 350, which reached a whooping resell price of USD $2,000 for a new pair. People would go crazy everytime the first version released a new colorway, with resell prices fluctuating at PHP 32,000 to PHP 45,000. Product allocation was so scarce in the Philippines that people became desperate to cop a pair the soonest they can; some would even wait outside the store to purchase pairs from raffle winners or even backdoor a pair from the raffling store. Everybody wanted YEEZYs. Thus, Kanye started making promises that everybody will be getting YEEZYs – and it might be coming true!
Kanye West re-releases the adidas YEEZY BOOST 700 this coming September 15, which debuted back in the Summer of 2017. Retailing at USD $300 (and shipping to the Philippines is around USD $50 excluding tax!), the shoe has also been in-demand since it released. Though not a lot of pairs float around the after-market, its resell price also reached USD $1,000 some time last year. Its chunky dad shoe aesthetic has captured the hearts of the sneaker community, especially since lots of brands have been releasing similar silhouettes. The shoe becomes truly covetable through its unique design and colorway, really making it onto someone’s “Must Cop” list!
Over the past few releases, Kanye West and adidas has been continually increasing its quantities – which inevitably decreases the resell value of the shoe. Surprisingly, some people would even pass up on the opportunity to cop them as they would resell for barely its retail price. Those who extremely desire to acquire the shoe may really do so at retail price. Will this bring about Kanye’s promise that his YEEZY line will be for everybody? Will a time ever come where YEEZYs will sell for even below its retail price?
The YEEZY BOOST 700 will be available for purchase worldwide as well as yeezysupply.com! If your heart’s in it, you might as well cop a new pair while you still can. We don’t think it will sell out fast though!
