Back in April, Repgod888 gave HYPEBEAST an exclusive on-foot look at the “Asriel” and “Israfil” colorways of the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2. This time around, adidas officially announces the release details of the latter option.
Paying homage to one of the Islamic archangels, the “Israfil” variant predominantly boasts a grey-tone on the Primeknit uppers alongside the unmissable orange-tinged brown hue on the lateral sides for a balanced look. Light blue and tan accents are also incorporated on the textural top sections of the shoe. Completing the silhouette’s makeup is the full-length BOOST sole unit with a gum rubber outsole segment.
Unlike previous iterations, the midfoot of the sneaker seemingly features a brand new bungee cord lacing system for seamless adjustability when worn. Comfort is also elevated with the full-length BOOST midsole while a translucent outsole is affixed onto the shoe for durability.
The “Israfil” is set to land on August 22 at adidas.com and select YEEZY retailers. The shoe will also arrive in full-family sizes including for adults ($220 USD), kids ($160 USD), and infants ($140 USD). The adidas YEEZY 700 V3 is also set to release later this month.
