Over the last 17 days, the being formerly known as “Kanye West” has dominated pop culture headlines with his love life, culminating in some choice words toward Pete Davidson on The Game’s “Eazy” single released on January 15th. Ye, however, has not abandoned the sneaker space, indirectly revealing new pairs like the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Pure Oat,” among others.
Upon first being teased, the upcoming pair was compared to the “Cream” colorway that first launched on April 29th, 2017, but closer inspection reveals a different-enough Yeezy. For starters, the globe icon printed onto the left shoe’s sock-liner denotes the pair’s partly-recycled construction, which is presumably accomplished by way of the Primeknit upper. Semi-translucent strips along the lateral profiles deliver an updated look to the Yeezy 350 v2, with heels also being accompanied by fan-requested pull tabs. The ribbed, “milky” sole unit and the exposed Boost foam underfoot don’t deviate too much from the upper’s “angelic” color palette, but varying patterns, textures and other detailing inject some personality to the predominantly white shoes.
Continue ahead for another look at the “Bone” 350s, and anticipate a release date come Spring 2022.

Previously reported as the “Pure Oat” style, retailers that’ve already gotten pairs of this adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 have called it the “Bone” colorway.
