Ever since Ye took to Instagram to vent his frustrations with adidas and Gap, the latter of the two companies has had a shakeup in terms of Yeezy releases with dates shifting left and right. Just this month alone we were set to receive the Yeezy 500 High “Taupe Black” and Yeezy 350 V2 CMPCT “Slate Bone,” but as each release date approached, retailers took down their raffles and radio silence ensued. Now replacing the “Slate Bone” in the release calendar, adidas has just announced the Yeezy 350 V2 “Flax” and Yeezy 350 V2 “Bone” are set to release in the US and the EU respectively.
Originally released as an APAC exclusive, the “Flax” colorway is making its debut outside of this region and brings with it a muted tonal green shade across its Primeknit and rubber construction. This shade is present on the "Static" patterned Primeknit while the semi-translucent TPU stripe on the lateral side gets a more true green finish. A matching pull-tab on the heel and tonal laces help complete the upper while the semi-translucent rubber midsole and outsole encase the full-length Boost cushioning system.
Even with the “Bone” receiving two releases in 2022, adidas is giving the EU another shot at this all-white 350 V2. Utilizing the same Primeknit pattern as releases like the “Zyon” and “Onyx,” the entire silhouette gets a white makeover. Frankenstein stitching details running down the spine come in this all-white shade while the lateral sides TPU stripe comes in a clear finish, giving you a partial view of the internal construction of the sneaker. Heading to the medial side, a large portion of the Primeknit comes in a very loose weave which makes this colorway fit much looser compared to other 350 V2s. The fan-favorite pull-tab returns as does the immaculate comfort of the full-length Boost cushioning system, encased between a semi-translucent white-on-white rubber midsole and outsole.
The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Bone & Flax are set to restock on September 30th, 2022 through adidas Confirmed, adidas.com/yeezy, and select Yeezy stockists online and in-store. The Bone colorway will release exclusively in the EU while the Flax will see a release in the US and APAC regions as well as a drop on Yeezy Supply. Releasing in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $230.
