While Kanye west goes, “Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy, I feel so accomplished,” are you feeling a little bit unaccomplished with finding the right fit? Is finding the shoe that fits you proving to be hard?
While all shoes fit as per the shoe size chart, Yeezy’s tend to be a hit or miss a lot of times. So how do you go shopping Yeezy’s and accomplish finding the perfect shoe size that fits — Mind you! These sneakers are first, not so easy to grab, and finding your size is no less than a grueling task.
So, what size Yeezys should I get? While you wonder and sweat it, we are just gonna show you how easy it is to find the perfect fit.
Why Is the Yeezy Shoe Size Chart Is Inaccurate?
The reason is not that hard to guess. When Kanye West collaborated with Adidas to create his own shoe line, and when the first Yeezy Boost 750 dropped, people, went bonkers, those shoes looked different, futuristic, and were unlike anything else — it was simply FABULOUS! While they also faced criticism for the design from a few.
Their silhouettes are different, and there are multiple types of Yeezy’s, such as 350s, 450, 700, and 380 alien and more, and they all are different from each other and look different while maintaining their distinctive look — and this is the reason a lot of them buy a Yeezy — and they scream HYPE!
While an oxford shoe or a sneaker from another brand will fit you, Yeezy’s won’t. And you could also find their shoe buying chart to be inaccurate due to the silhouette of every shoe being different, and the chart could slightly be off than what it suggests.
Yeezy 350 V1 VS V2s Size Up or Down?
The Yeezy 350 series is recognized as the most comfortable shoes for everyday use while they also cost pretty hefty.
And the difference between Yeezy 350 V1 VS V2s is.
350 V1 are true to size, and they fit just like all other shoes and sneakers from a different brand do.
And if you are going for V2s, you should generally go a size up with your 350 V2s, even if you are going for a Yeezy 350 V2 Zebra or a Yeezy 350 V2 Black Non-Reflective, you should go at least half a size bigger than other shoes.
Yeezy 350 V2 does get loose with wear, but not much, and if you thought of buying your size only to expect it will loosen after a few wear, don’t even try, and go for size up for a comfy and snug fit.
How Do Other Yeezy’s Fit
Every other Yeezy except 350 series is true to size sneakers. This means, if you wear US 10 shoes and sneakers from other brands, you are completely going to be fine buying your Yeezy 500 or 700 with your shoe size, in this case, US 10.
For some, Yeezy 500s and 450s could be a little tighter, and you will be fine by buying just half a size up, like the 350 V2’s. But this is very rare.
And the 700’s are little strange ones. For example, the Yeezy 700’s aka wave runners, are true to size. However, some sneaker enthusiasts have mentioned the elastic within the upper toebox is a little tighter, and therefore it is best to go half a size up in that case.
How To Clean Your 350s?
Ok! Now that we helped you with finding your perfect fit for 350 V1 and V2 — which is going half a size or a full size up when buying your next Yeezy, the question is how do you clean and extend the life of a shoe that looks like it’s made of socks? I mean, heck! You spent a few hundred dollars!
Taking care of the 350 V1 and V2S could look like it’s challenging, but it truly isn’t. There are only a few things to keep in mind with the 350 series.
Never wear it out in the rain!
You can protect it using water and dirt protection shoe spray to protect your Yeezy’s from getting soiled from muddy rainwater or dust.
To learn how to use protection spray on your 350s, follow the below steps.
- Dry brush your shoe and make sure you don’t damage the knit of the shoe
- Shake the protection spray to mix all the elements
- Using a protection spray, spray the shoe from a 20cm distance covering the top and bottom
- Let the shoe sit for 10 minutes in direct sunlight or inside the house at room temperature.
- Again repeat steps 3 and 4.
- Your shoes are now ready for the storms.
Once done, use an odor protection spray to keep it smelling fresh
Can I Wear Yeezy’s to the Gym?
No! You cannot!
If you are using them for running, then it’s okay. If you are thinking of lifting weight wearing Yeezy’s, we would recommend you not to as it’s not safe.
Julie Wandzilak, Tier X Coach at Equinox Columbus Circle says, “Wearing those types of sneakers while working out can compromise the sophistication of shoe itself. Not only will it lack in stability and decrease your performance ability, but it may also have effects on your foot itself.” And we believe just to look trendy, you don’t have to harm yourself by putting yourself at risk wearing shoes that are not meant for the gym.
Kanye West and Adidas partnership has revolutionized the sneaker industry with a unique shoe design that is an eye-grabber, comfortable to wear, and a perfect companion to the everyday grind.
While they have their pros, sometimes there is a challenge finding the right size for you.
While a lot of them are true to size fit, there are a few such as 350 V2 that are safe to buy a size that is one inch bigger.
