Yeezys Through The Seasons

Since day one, Eastbay has been proud to offer you the hottest shoes around. We are your destination for Yeezys.

Check out the timeline below to view Eastbay’s journey with the popular kick by Kanye West x adidas Originals.

Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Ash Pearl’

The Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 “Ash Pearl” will be launching on March 20, 2021. The shoe features a return to the earth-tone hues that have become fairly standard in the Yeezy line. Three different colors are layered across the upper with a sandy cream on the top, tan in the middle, and dark blue on the bottom. The two-toned gum outsole, a staple, brings the shoe together for a crisp, clean look.

Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Ash Blue’

The first Yeezy of 2021 has arrived. The Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘ASH BLUE’ will be launching on 2/27. In a departure from the recent launches that have featured more earth tones, this shoe indulges in more shades of blue and gray. A yellow, non-transparent lateral side stripe breaks up the flow of the shoe, and the ribbed midsole sets it apart from other Yeezys.

Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Sand Taupe’

The final Yeezy of 2020 will be launching on 12/19. The Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Sand Taupe’ brings back some familiar earthy tones from previous models. The shoe features brown hues with rustic orange weaves running through the lateral vamp. The outsole is a light and dark gum color and there will also be a new lacing system featured.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Core Black/Red’

The YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 ‘CORE BLACK/RED’ is being re-released on 12/5 just in time for the holidays. The shoe is constructed with an all-black Primeknit upper with a matching TPU midsole that covers Boost cushioning. Red stitching on the pull tab matches the red “SPLY-350” lettering on the side panel.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Natural’

Continue to grow your sneaker collection by adding the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Natural’ to your closet. The upper is split into two variations of the titular color, with the top half being a darker shade and the bottom half a lighter shade. The heel pull from several of the past silhouettes has been removed, giving the shoe a cleaner look. This pair will be available on 10/24.

Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Carbon’

Put together a new look this fall with the adidas Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Carbon’. Sitting atop a translucent outsole is a Primeknit upper with black and gray tones. A solid black stripe runs along the lateral side with matching colored laces.

The adidas Originals Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘ZYON’ drops at 7 a.m. on 7/18/2020. Visit eastbay.com to buy a pair.

Slip on something different with the multi-colored ‘Zyon’ featuring two dual-colored sections of the upper separated by the lateral black stripe. Above the stripe is a grey and off-white pattern while below is dark brown and off-white.

A Look Back: The Ten Greatest Back to School Sneakers of 1996

A Look Back: The Ten Greatest Back to School Sneakers of 1996

During the month of August, I always get nostalgic about how I used to count down the last days of summer as a kid – it was exciting to go back to school and see my friends again, but it was a bummer to have to sit in class instead of playing sports outside all day. This year will look a lot different for most students, with virtual learning and face coverings the big issues in 2020. Back in the ‘90s, we wouldn’t even know what a “Zoom class” meant – we were just starting to “surf the web.” The ‘90s felt a lot simpler in a lot of ways. I was flipping through an old Back to School Eastbay from 1996 the other day and couldn’t believe how many classic sneakers were available to us back then. Of course, for kids like me, we could only have one pair. And they better last us at least 6 months. Here’s a look back at the kicks I used to stare at as a 14-year-old kid: the 10 Greatest Back to School Sneakers of 1996:

10. Air Jordan XI Low

Michael Jordan wore the black/red version in a few games back in the ‘96 Playoffs. He never wore the white/cobalt grey version in a pro game though. Fun fact: for some odd reason, the original boxes of the white/cobalt grey say “IE” on them, but the black/red version doesn’t have that on the label. Nobody truly knows what “IE” stands for, though most assume it stands for “International Exclusive.”

9. Air Griffey Max

Back in ‘96, baseball trainers were becoming as popular as basketball shoes mostly because of Ken Griffey, Jr. “The Kid” was crushing it with the Mariners and had plenty of great ads and commercials thanks to his partnership with Nike. His first official sneaker was also a hit and led to many more classics the next few years. Nike even launched some ads in the fall of ‘96 featuring Junior running for president. 

8. Air More Uptempo

The Team USA colorway that Scottie Pippen wore in the summer of ‘96 was a huge hit as Dream Team III easily won gold in Atlanta. I had the Air Much Uptempo, which was basically the same sneaker but with AIR only in the heel as opposed to the whole sneaker. The More Uptempo has retroed countless times, but we’ve yet to see a Much retro. 

7. ASICS GEL-Kayano

If you’re a serious runner, chances are you’ve messed with a Kayano. ASICS has been a trusted running company for decades, thanks to their patented GEL cushioning technology, and the Kayano was the top-of-the-line model with GEL in the heel and forefoot. 

6. Saucony 3D G.R.I.D Hurricane

I ran in these back in high school. They were my first serious running sneaker and I absolutely loved them. I loved how they looked, how they fit, and the 3D G.R.I.D. technology inside. They were also the first sneaker I wore that had “motion control,” which basically meant they propelled your foot forward as you ran.

5. adidas Response Trail

I remember a lot of kids rocked these in school. I loved the design and I’m surprised adidas hasn’t brought them back yet. They were comfortable, had great traction, and were even water resistant. I would definitely rock a pair today. Over the next few years, adidas would continue to tinker with the Response Trail for successive models and they were all designed very well.

4. Converse All Star 2000

In 1996, Converse brought back the classic All Star model with a modern take. It featured visible REACT cushioning in the heel and tumbled full-grain leather. I remember some pro players wore these, including Chris Webber after he left Nike. A lot of people wish Converse would bring these back.

3. Fila Grant Hill II

Detroit star Grant Hill was super popular his first few seasons in the league, and was even compared to Michael Jordan. He had some nice signature sneakers with Fila, and the Grant Hill II was one of their best sellers. This is a model that has returned recently and is still popular today.

2. Reebok Icepick

Seattle’s high-flying forward Shawn Kemp rocked the all-white Icepick in the league Finals versus the Bulls. Kemp was the kind of player that basically made any sneaker look good, and I will always remember The Reingman giving the Bulls all they could handle in that series rocking these.

1. adidas EDT Top Ten 2000

adidas EQT Top Ten 2000 – This is a sneaker that a young Kobe Bryant wore. Featuring “Feet You Wear” technology, adidas was definitely ahead of the game when it came to designing sneakers with that “low-to-the-ground” feel. Bryant would continue to rock “Feet You Wear” adidas models for his first few seasons.

Dream Big: J. Cole and Puma Launch Signature Sneaker Together

Dream Big: J. Cole and Puma Launch Signature Sneaker Together

J. Cole has sold out shows across America, he’s gone platinum with no features, and is the face of conscious rap. Not bad for a kid from Fayetteville, North Carolina. J. Cole has always been a big dreamer, and now he’s teamed up with Puma to bring a different kind of basketball shoe to the court. One for all the dreamers out there, the RS-Dreamer.

Puma Blog Featured Image

Cole and the Puma design team took all the bold elements of the RS series and built a fully playable pair of kicks. It all starts with the fit. The team installed a disruptive lacing system that gives the wearers a snug fit and responsive feel all throughout the forefoot and midsole.

The cushioning system is a combination of a ProFoam midsole and RS-Foam in the heel. This provides the maximum energy return all game long, whether you’re a slashing wing, bruising big man, or silky-smooth guard.

Perfecting the outsole pattern was the final key to the silhouette. Every great basketball shoe features outstanding grip, and this one is no different. Made with full coverage, high abrasion rubber, the RS-Dreamer gives players extra grip that is ideal for quick cuts and spot-up play.

Make sure to head to Eastbay now to grab a pair of the Puma RS-Dreamers while they’re still available.
