When the adidas?Yeezy Boost 350 debuted at Yeezy Season 1 back in February, eyes were still directed at the 750 Boost. They were, in many ways, a footnote to the larger story and anticipation of the 750 Boost. The Turtle Grey colorway that releases this Saturday was seen alongside a black colorway, and the Duck Boot (whose details have yet to be known). Kanye West started wearing them even before the 750 was released, and folks in the Kanye camp have been flexing in them ever since. But it’s been a long road to get to this point, that can only be fully appreciated by looking at how Kanye West has approached footwear and his own status in the world of fashion.
