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 ‘Mono Ice’

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Mono Ice’ is part of the ‘Mono’ pack slated to drop on June 18. The pack consists of three semi-translucent colorways that will each be dropping in different parts of the world. While the ‘Mono Ice’ can be found in North America, the ‘Mono Clay’ can be found in Asia Pacific and China, and the ‘Mono Mist’ will drop in Europe, Africa, India, The Middle East, Russia, Ukraine, and China too.

The upper is made with monofilament mesh which makes it see-through and shows off the inner cage. The shoe is mostly a light blue color, save for the branding strip that is just a shade darker. The matching colors give the shoe a very chromatic feel for a clean look on your feet.

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.

Up Your Style: Best Casual Shoes at Eastbay

Up Your Style: Best Casual Shoes at Eastbay

One of the most iconic silhouettes New Balance has ever released has gotten an update. The 574 Rugged has a suede and mesh upper that sits atop a jagged outsole, providing a streetwear style that allows you to go off the beaten path.

Step into the future in the Air Max 2090. The upper features a combination of translucent rubber and mesh for a modern look. There’s Cushlon foam in the midsole to cushion each step, and the Max Air unit in the heel stays undefeated.

The NMD is known for bringing sporty style to casual, everyday shoes. The full-length Boost midsole gives the shoe that chill look while still providing you with high-performance cushioning in case you decide to go for a run or hit the gym.

A pair of Vans should be a staple in your kicks rotation. The aesthetic may be low-key, but they fit perfectly with almost any outfit. This pair, with its mixture of gold and navy blue colors, adds a little spice to your outfit.

This shoe was designed for International Women’s Day by the women who work at Converse. It features a bold, all-over print featuring “My Story” graphics and a platform outsole for an authentic feel. Stacked heel logos and the signature star ankle patch bring a little twist to classic elements of Converse shoes.

A Look Back: The Air Jordan XI Low

A Look Back: The Air Jordan XI Low

Few can deny the impact the Air Jordan XI has had on the sneaker community over the past 25 years. From the very first moments we saw Michael Jordan rocking the XI’s, we were mesmerized by them. Tinker Hatfield’s genius design made them look super-sharp on and off the court. The Air Jordan XI was one of the most popular sneakers MJ ever wore, to the point that Jordan Brand started retro’ing them just five years later beginning in the late fall of 2000. We just couldn’t get enough of that patent leather goodness. 

Although Jordan Brand did release a low-cut version of the XI back in ‘96 in both a white and black colorway, these silhouettes had a different design compared to the mid-cuts. The OG lows were meant more for off-court styling, with breathable mesh weaved into the upper. It almost seemed strange at the time that Jordan Brand and Nike didn’t drop a low-cut version with the patent leather mud guard. That all changed in the Spring of 2001.

 

Drew Hammell Look Back Jordan Retro XI Low

In April and May of 2001, Jordan Brand released low-cut patent leather and super-stylish snakeskin versions of the Air Jordan XI. These shoes were meant to be rocked right away for the warm summer months. They were flashy and looked great with shorts. This low-cut version featured the same full-length encapsulated Air-Sole unit and composite shank-plate, just like the mids. There were also matching Jordan Brand shorts, caps, tees, and beanies – because back in the early ‘00s, your whole fit had to be color-coordinated from head to toe. 

In April 2001, the white/silver colorway dropped for ladies, the white/columbia and white/red dropped for men, and the white/pink dropped for girls. Then in May ‘01, the white/pink snakeskin dropped for women, and the white/navy snakeskin dropped for men. There was also a white/citrus and white/zen grey version.  

Though Michael Jordan was famous for rocking the AJ XI mids, he also wore the lows with patent leather as well. During the NBA Finals versus the Sonics in ‘96, he briefly wore the low-cut “Bred” colorway. He also rocked a low-cut patent leather “Concord” colorway during the trophy ceremony after the Bulls defeated the Sonics that year. It would have made sense for Jordan Brand to bring these classic colorways back in low-cut versions right off the bat, but we had to wait years for them to finally release to the public. 

While the holidays have always been about the AJ XI mid releases each year, the summer belongs to the lows. This spring, Jordan Brand is bringing back the white/citrus colorway, along with a low-cut version of the classic “Legend Blue”. The love for the XI’s is not going away anytime soon, so once again these models will be instant sell outs.

The Jordan Zion 1 Has Arrived

The Jordan Zion 1 Has Arrived

Zion Williamson has been a presence in basketball fans’ lives since his high school highlights were being reposted and shared by ESPN, Overtime, and Bleacher Report, among others. The jaw-dropping dunks and sheer athleticism on display were unlike anything anyone had seen since LeBron.

Zion would go on to spend one year at Duke, where he exceeded expectations. The most memorable moment of his college career might have been when, in a game against UNC, his shoe exploded after he tried to plant and cut. That high-profile incident, plus his status as the most hyped prospect in a decade, made his decision about what sneaker company he would sign with one of the most highly anticipated choices in a decade. 

While every major brand made a huge push to land Zion’s signature, he eventually committed to Jordan. Now, in his second season with New Orleans, Zion has the team challenging for a playoff spot. Meanwhile, Jordan announced the launch of his first signature shoe, the Jordan Zion 1.

Zion is built like almost no other player in the league. The brute strength and raw power he plays with make him nearly unguardable in one-on-one situations. Designing a shoe that will hold up to and accentuate his style of play was going to be a challenge, but the team at Jordan seems to have risen to it.

Cushioning and support were always going to be the two most important aspects of the shoe. Zion is a big man, and he needs a shoe that will prevent as much wear and tear on his knees and feet as possible. A full-length Air Strobel unit stitched directly into the upper helps give the impression that of walking on a cloud. Pair that with a Zoom Air unit sitting under the forefoot, and that’s how the design team came up with the perfect amount of cushioning for any player no matter how big or small.

The support in the shoe is also broken down into two components. The first is the higher sidewalls to protect players moving side to side. The shoe is a 5/8 cut, splitting the difference between low and high. The other component is a two-loop band that locks players in every time they lace up.

Other key components of the shoe include a multidirectional traction pattern to provide elite grip for all the planting and cutting players do throughout the game. There is also a padded tongue to relieve some of the pressure the laces put on the top of your foot.

The Jordan Zion 1 will be available starting 4/23. Make sure to head to Eastbay to snag a pair as well as all other Zion apparel from Jordan.
