With Kanye West firmly in his all-black era – see the Yeezy x Gap collection; the Donda album cover; any pap shot of the rapper-cum-designer since, by no coincidence, his divorce from Kim Kardashian – it feels apt that pitch-dark kicks are presently the focus over at Adidas Yeezy. And right now, it’s the impending restock of the coveted Yeezy Slide ‘Onyx’ that’s the hot topic of the global sneaker community.
First released in March in full-family sizing, the ‘Onyx’ iteration of the EVA foam slip-on has been sought-after by unsuccessful sneaker rafflers ever since. Thus, word of the restock is certain to spark joy in those who refrained from surrendering to resale websites in hopes of a second release. Is it possible that this particular colourway is the best slide released as part of the ongoing collaboration? Possibly, although we must say we’ve always had a thing for the OG iteration: the adidas Yeezy Slide ‘Desert Sand’ (a shoe you will, unfortunately, have to turn to StockX for).
Anyway, back to the ‘Onyx’. If you’re eager to add a pair to your sneaker rotation, you’ll want to download the adidas confirmed app and participate in the draw scheduled for Monday 25 July. And if you want to quintuple your chances of securing a pair, you can enter the launch raffles organised by End, JD, 18montrose and Hanon, all set to go live on the same day. Priced at just £60, you’ve got nothing to lose (apart from the £60, of course, but they're well worth it).
