We appreciate Ibn Jasper trying to set the record straight on upcoming Yeezy Boost releases, but he’s been wrong before. He originally called the Ultra Boost “Reflective” and “Cream” a Friends and Family exclusive probably because he received his pairs long before they were to drop. It’s not uncommon for those high up the ranks to not truly be aware of who goes on down in the retail distribution ranks; similarly, we heard from a (very) higher up of Jordan Brand that Drake’s OVO 10s were insanely limited, but that was far from true. However, Ibn has proved himself to be as reliable a source on Yeezy info as any because he was in fact the individual to reveal the shoes in the first place.
That said, this Saturday’s Yeezy Boost” release” has been “cancelled” (we put both in quotes since according to adidas, there was no release in the first place), but all signs points to a Yeezy Boost 750 and Yeezy Boost 350 release this month. The latest update on Yeezy Boosts are now regarding the tan pair that Kanye West has been wearing; the official colors read “LGTSTO/OXFTAN/OGTSTO” (potentially Light Stone/Oxford Tan/Light Stone, h/t YTWW and group member Jeremy Lawrence). If we had to pick one known colorway of the 350 Boosts to be these, it would indeed be the tan pair that ‘Ye wore during his senseless rant during which he revealed his intent to run for president. YeezyTalkWorldWide also notes a potential December 29th release for a Yeezy Boost 350, but keep that on your radar rather than cementing it in your calendar. We’ll bring you more updates as we learn them from sources and from the brand, so stay tuned.
