Best Yeezys - adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 "Onyx"

It goes without saying that the 350 model is one of the greatest silhouettes from the adidas Yeezy era, which is why we believe these "Onyx" 350 v2s are some of the best Yeezys available right now.

What we like about them, in particular, is that they're reminiscent of one of the first adidas Yeezys ever released in the "Pirate Black" 350s which are now incredibly rare and difficult to find.

Rather than red stitching though, these 350 v2s feature a monochromatic colour scheme which, in theory, makes them easier to match with any outfit.

All in all, the "Onyx" 350 v2s are among some of our favourites thanks to their simplistic and versatile design, hence their inclusion on our list.

Best Yeezys For Summer - adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 "Bone"

Continuing with the simplistic style, these "Bone" 350 v2s look to be a great pick for summer thanks to their lightweight and white Primeknit build.

Much like the aforementioned 350s, these Yeezys come dressed from head to tone in a light bone tone that should be ideal for keeping your feet as cool as possible in the sunshine.

Moreover, their simplistic design helps to make them incredibly versatile, meaning they should be relatively easy to pair with any colour scheme.

Ultimately,the "Bone" 350 v2s are a classic example of what makes a pair of shoes some of the best sneakers for summer.

Best Yeezy 700s - adidas Yeezy Boost 700 "Hi-Res Red"

Although Yeezy 350s are great if you're looking for some lightweight knitted trainers, 700s are the champions when it comes to being the ultimate lifestyle sneakers for every occasion.

Out of some of the most recent releases, we feel the "Hi-Res Red" colourway is one of the best thanks to its bright and bold design with contrasting hints of colour.

Not only that, but the inclusion of the bright red hi-res tone is a bit of a throwback to the "Red October" Nike Yeezy 2s from 2014, which have gone on to become some of the most expensive sneakers ever made.

While the Yeezy 2s are almost unobtainable these days, the "Hi-Res Red" 700s offer you the chance to rock a pair of bright red Yeezys no matter the occasion.

Best Yeezy 500s - adidas Yeezy 500 "Granite"

Yeezy 500 releases have been relatively few and far between since their debut in 2018; however, adidas did launch the "Granite" colour not too long ago which we think is a great match for the 500's silhouette.

This is because 500s are often praised for their fall and winter-appropriate ruggedness, so a stone grey colour scheme is ideal for the darker and colder months.

These 500s also feature a rather unique combination of suede, leather, and mesh, making them more unique to the majority of Primeknit Yeezys we've seen over the years.

All in all, the "Granite" 500s look to be an excellent addition to any sneaker collection, particularly if you're after something to add to your winter sneaker rotation.

Best Yeezy 450s - adidas Yeezy 450 "Sulfur"

As far as Yeezy 450s go, we feel the "Sulfur" yellow colourway is one of the best available right now.

It features an almost olive-like colour scheme across every inch of its Primeknit uppers and laces.

The 450s also have a standout feature in their lattice midsoles that wrap around parts of the uppers to create a bold design that will certainly help you stand out from the crowd.

The 450's design may not be everyone's cup of tea; however, the "Sulfur" colourway is definitely worth considering if you're a fan of Yeezys in our opinion.

Best Yeezy Foam RNRs - adidas Yeezy Foam RNNR "Desert Sand"

The Foam RNNR may be one of the newer models in the Yeezy range; however, we feel they have their own distinct advantage over some of the other silhouettes thanks to their lightweight, cushioned, and extremely breathable design.

These "Desert Sand" Foam RNNRs, in particular, look to be a great option to consider due to their neutral colour scheme which should be relatively simple to pair with almost any outfit.

Made entirely from EVA foam as well, these sneakers should be incredibly comfortable to wear all day, to the point where you may never want to take them off.

Best Yeezy Slides - adidas Yeezy Slide "Enflame Orange"

For warm-weather holidays or something to simply wear around the house, you probably won't find many Yeezys more comfortable than a pair of Slide series sneakers.

Our particular favourites are the "Enflame Orange" Slides which arrive dressed from head to toe in bright orange to make them stand out on your feet.

What makes a pair of Slides so great though is that they're composed entirely of injected EVA foam which, along with the moulded sockliners, is designed to provide a soft and ultra-comfortable footbed.

Overall, we feel the "Enflame Orange" Slides are well worth considering if you're searching for what are likely to be some of the most comfortable Yeezys around.

Frequently Asked Questions About Yeezys

A ton of questions usually pop up when searching for the best Yeezys.

Don't worry though because we've answered some of the most commonly asked queries right here.

Where Do You Buy Yeezys?

Over the years, Yeezys have been notoriously difficult to buy on release day due to limited stock and high demand.

However, that doesn't mean it's impossible, and we'd recommend always trying to secure your pair through the adidas store or the adidas Confirmed app directly first.

Alternatively, you'll often find new Yeezys listed on the Yeezy Supply page as this is Kanye's official e-commerce store.

Failing this, we'd suggest heading over to the resale market on websites like StockX and GOAT, both of which authenticate every purchase to ensure your second-hand sneakers are legit.

For more information, check out our list of the best places to buy sneakers right here.

Do Yeezys Get Restocked?

The short answer is yes; however, not every release will be restocked and you may be left waiting for a few years to see the particular pair you're after rereleased.

As mentioned above, an alternative option is to head over to resale sites like StockX if you miss out on the chance to secure the Yeezys you want during their initial launch.

Are Yeezys Comfortable?

In short, yes. Yeezys should be comfortable for most people seeing as almost all the models feature adidas' highly advanced Boost cushioning technology, which is widely regarded as one of the most comfortable sneaker foams around.

350s and 450s also feature Primeknit fabric, so should be incredibly lightweight and breathable to wear which, in turn, should help improve their levels of comfort.

It's important to get the right size Yeezys though to maximise your comfort, so we'd suggest checking out our guide on how to measure your feet to ensure the correct fit.

How Do You Clean Yeezys?

As mentioned in our guide to cleaning Yeezys, the best method of cleaning your sneakers really depends on their material.

For most materials though, we'd recommend wiping away any loose debris using a soft-bristled brush, then gently scrubbing your Yeezys with a mixture of shoe cleaner and warm water (or mild soap).

Once clean, wipe away any excess liquid then leave to dry naturally and away from direct sunlight.

How Do You Lace Yeezys?

Whether you own a pair of 350s or 700s, one of the most common methods of lacing a pair of Yeezys is actually one we've covered before in our guide to lacing Jordan 1s.

Start by threading your shoelace through the first eyelets to create a straight bar across the centre of your sneakers.

Then cross each end of the shoelace over in the middle to thread through the next eyelets up on the opposing sides.

Repeat this step until you reach the top where you can either tuck your shoelaces in or tie the two ends together across the front.
