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 'Light'

 

Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Light’

The Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 ‘Light’ drops August 28. It features a tonal grey Primeknit upper with a contrasting orange pull tab on the heel. The lateral side stripe is made with UV-activated yarns that changes color when exposed to sunlight, changing the stripe from grey to orange. Full-length BOOST cushioning and the classic Yeezy outsole complete the look.

 

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.

From The Pros: The Five Tools You Need To Make It To The League

From The Pros: The Five Tools You Need To Make It To The League

Do you have big dreams of making it to the league one day? To some, that might sound like a longshot, but every pro football player started out right where you are now – playing the game they love and dreaming of turning it into something more. So we asked some of the game’s best what it takes to turn those dreams into reality. From the pros themselves, here are the five tools you need to make it to the league.

1. Accountability

If you’re going to set big goals for yourself, you have to be ready to make sacrifices and put in the work. Coaches, trainers, teammates, and parents can give you the tools and support to play your best, but the fire you need to overcome obstacles and make it to the top can only come from within.

“My biggest goal for this season is to push myself against competition and get better every day,” said 2021 Minnesota draft pick Kellen Mond. “I will always have a super high standard for myself and I want to be able to set the bar high in everything that I do. The best advice that I would give to another kid with dreams of making it to the league would be to be your biggest self-critic. Do not allow others to have a higher standard for you than yourself.”
 
“Coaches, people who are working with me and helping me succeed and accomplish my goals, they matter,” said Philly QB Jalen Hurts. “Their voices matter. But as a leader, I try to be a man who’s going to do my job. I hold myself to the highest standard possible. So anything anyone else says, it doesn’t mean much to me.”

2. Work Ethic

Being accountable to yourself first means that every new workout, practice, and scrimmage is a chance to run tighter routes, make cleaner catches, or hold coverage better than the athlete you were yesterday. In a game of inches, most of the important growth happens when no one’s watching. It’s incremental improvement over time that’s going to make all the difference on game day, whether you’re lining up at a JV scrimmage or a Division I State Championship.

 

“Don’t let anyone outwork you,” said Los Angeles safety Derwin James. “You can’t control how much natural talent you were born with, but you can control how hard you work. Be early to practice. Stay late. Make sure you’re getting extra work in in the weight room or watching film. That’s the only way to make it.”
“You see my success on Sunday,” said Green Bay lineman David Bakhtiari, “but the work that goes in is Monday through Saturday. It’s in the offseason where I really sharpen my iron, put myself in the best situation so when I do come back and play, I can ask my body to do what’s necessary, to go through all the obstacles of a long, rigorous season.”
“You get out what you put in,” said Jalen. “I pride myself on putting something in every day – mentally, emotionally, physically – whatever it is, it all matters. You have to compete at everything you do.”
“It really comes down to just working hard, being a good teammate, and focusing on improving every day,” said Tampa Bay wide receiver Chris Godwin. “If you’re able to focus on that, then I think you’ll continue to improve and you’ll see your game take new strides and you’ll be a better player overall.”

3. Teamwork

It takes more than just a roster of talented players to build a championship team. You need chemistry, and that means building trust with your teammates and making sure you’re in sync on game day.

 

“You’re only as strong as your weakest link,” said David. “The offensive line is one of the few positions where all five of us need to be working together to have success. You can’t have individual success. I would say offensive line is the team position within the ‘ultimate team sport.’”
“The biggest lesson I learned from Tom Brady was just how simple you have to make the game,” explained Chris. “So many coaches are used to sticking to their formulas and philosophies, but really it just comes down to percentages. You’re trying to put yourself in the best position to be successful by adjusting plays at the line, being on the same page as your quarterback, and just making sure you’re putting your team in the best position to be successful.”

 

4. Resilience

In such a physical sport, setbacks are bound to happen. Suffering an injury can feel devastating, but the key to getting back in the game is to focus on healing and rebuilding your physical strength. After a season-ending meniscus tear in 2020, Derwin James had to face watching his team from the sidelines, but he refused to let adversity ger the best of him.

“It’s been tough for sure,” said Derwin. “Every time you watch a game and you’re not on the field, you keep thinking about all the plays you could make to help your team out. You have to be mentally tough to keep doing the rehab day in and day out, because it can get grueling for sure. Thankfully my teammates are always there supporting me, because a lot of them know what it’s like. I also lean on my family pretty heavily – they’ve always got my back encouraging me, telling me that I’ll come back stronger.”

 

If you make it to the top, it won’t just be physical injury that can derail you. The business of pro football can be overwhelming, and mistakes or losses on the national stage can be tough to recover from.

 

“As a team, you have to forget quickly in this business,” said David. “It can be very ‘what have you done for me lately,’ and that can leave a sour taste in your mouth. You should use it as motivation, but you shouldn’t dwell on it, because dwelling on something isn’t going to get the job done. Hard work, dedication, preparation, facing adversity, and making the necessary adjustments to get over that adversity is what you need to do in this league.”

 

5. Belief

Playing college ball or making it to the pros takes more than talent. It takes dedication, drive, and – maybe most importantly – belief.

“If you believe in yourself, anything is attainable,” said Jalen. “Put your mind to it, and you can go get it. That’s the message I send out to all kids, everywhere. Do what’s right because it’s right and go get it. You’ve gotta believe in yourself before you do anything.”

 

And when that belief pays off? Well, there’s nothing like it.

 

“Hearing my name called on draft night was an unbelievable feeling,” said Kellen. “One of the best feelings ever. You only have one opportunity to get your name called and it was something that I have worked for my entire life. Knowing all the work that it took to get to that point makes that moment extremely special.”
“Playing for my hometown team has been awesome,” said Chicago tight end Cole Kmet. “Growing up I loved watching some of those guys – Brian Urlacher and Charles Timmons – how they played, how they went about their business, it’s something I try to emulate. So, my advice to anyone trying to make it to this level is continue to work hard and enjoy playing the game you love.”

 

 

Now that you’ve got the tools, it’s time to stock up on the gear you need to make it to the top. Kick off your season with the best football apparel, cleats, accessories, and equipment – all in your team’s colors – when you shop Football By Color at eastbay.com.

This Year’s Best Football Gear: Cleats And Gloves Built For How You Play

This Year’s Best Football Gear: Cleats And Gloves Built For How You Play

As you head back to the gridiron this fall football season, you don’t need just any cleat or glove — you need the best gear possible to help you leave a legacy on the field. That’s why the Eastbay team huddled up and created your 2021 Football Gear Guide — an in-depth breakdown of the best football gear for this fall season. We even divided it by style of player. So, whether you’re an explosive speedster, an agile playmaker, or a trench warrior, we’ve got gear built for you. And whether you’re rocking adidas, Nike, Under Armour, Jordan, or just looking for the flashiest products — we’ve got all of the best brands.

This cleat is built for those flashy players who stack moves on top of moves to gain separation. There are strategically placed bladed and conical studs that allow easier braking and quick multi-directional cuts. The insole is built with high-rebound SuperFoam that absorbs shock and provides a high degree of comfort. To top it all off, the upper is made of plush suede microfiber to give players a fantastic fit with structured performance.

Behind nearly every amazing catch is a pair of great receiving gloves. The UA F7 Receiver Glove is that pair. Built to give players the stickiness and comfort they crave, each pair has UA GlueGrip that provides long-lasting grip to make sensational catches. The 3D printed overlay and textured TurfGear on the back of the hand add support and breathability.

The Nike Vapor Edge Pro 360 provides the three big qualities players need on the football field: agility, speed, and traction. The internal chassis and wide stud placement are what provide the agility by helping players make quick cuts with ease while keeping the cleat flexible. The lightweight upper ensures that nothing holds players back as they fly across the field. The cleat also features external pods, which boost the traction.

A quarterback’s best friend is a receiver who catches anything thrown his way. The Nike Vapor Jet 6.0 is a glove that will help anybody secure even the toughest catches. The palms have sticky Magnigrip to maximize the catching surface, and there is a stabilizing, flexible coating on the fingers that gives players more control. The back of the gloves is made up of breathable, stretch-woven fabric to keep everyone’s hands cool and dry.

The adidas adiZero 11 is made for players whose games are built around speed. It is the lightest cleat in football, full stop. The upper is constructed of TPU overlays that are lightweight, durable, and comfortable. The Sprintfame plate with a reinforced heel works together with the Sprintstuds to provide 360-degree traction.

The adidas adiZero 11 Receiver Gloves will upgrade any receiver’s hands. They are crafted with ultra-grip fabric that allows players to snag balls that are too high, low, or behind them. The gloves have free range of motion in the wrist so there is more flexibility for the hands.

The Under Armour Highlight MC is a cleat like no other. This cleat is geared towards providing the stability, flexibility, and support every player craves on the field.  It features a lightweight, molded 4D Foam footbed that conforms to the shape of each player’s foot for a snug fit. It also utilizes the UA Scatter Traction cleat plate to give players the grip and bite to cut in any direction quickly. Lastly, it has engineered synthetics in the upper to provide support and stability.

It’s the subtle details and key technologies that make the UA Blur Receiver Glove one of the favorites among players. One of those crucial technologies is the Power Catch panels that give players support but are flexible in the right moments to help reduce injury. The gloves are made with HeatGear fabric that offers ventilation and provides lightweight performance. Plus, there is no topping UA GlueGrip tech that is super sticky, so players can make even the most outrageous catches.

Speed is the ultimate X-factor in the modern game, and the adidas adiZero Primeknit cleat embodies that. The extended lacing system keeps player’s feet centered over the plate, so they are maximizing their explosiveness. These cleats are extremely comfortable thanks to a Primeknit upper and long-lasting TPU overlays. They are also incredibly lightweight, allowing players to unlock their full speed.

The adidas Freak 5.0 Padded Receiver Gloves make every wideout’s life easier with their GRIPTACK Palm technology. It offers supreme stickiness that gives players even more grip and control of the ball. They are ergonomically designed to mirror the movement of the hand giving players more control.

The Nike Alpha Menace Elite 2 is built for the more versatile players who want more support and structure but won’t sacrifice speed. There is a Pebax propulsion plate that provides support and stability as well as a responsive feel. The Flyknit upper and Phylon midsole are responsible for giving players the lightweight cushioning and breathable flexibility they have come to expect.

One of the more durable gloves available, the Nike Superbad 6 Football Glove has all the features any player could ever want. It has sticky MagniGrip palms that maximize catching surface. It has flexible padding on the back of the hands and fingers for undeniable comfort. It even has a ventilation channel to give players more breathability.
