Have you calmed down yet? Are you recovering from being shut out of purchasing a pair of the sold-out Pirate Black Yeezy Boost 350s? The kicks were restocked for a hot second last Friday, selling out quickly and leaving a trail of angry, empty-handed, and barefoot fans in their wake. You do have some other options if you fell in love with these difficult to obtain, all-black sneakers. First, you can pony up a small fortune on third party sites and spend time vetting sellers and their merch to make sure the all-black Yeezy Boosts they are peddling are indeed the real thing. Or you can try one of these alternatives.
I know, I know. You want the real thing. But hear me out. IRL you can't always get what you want so you have to suck it up and try something else. That's life and that's fashion. There are plenty of sneakers that are similar to the Pirate Black Yeezy Boost 350s and that are made by Adidas, as well.
These alternative options are made by the same brand and they are of similar quality. There is nothing wrong with that. No, they aren't the much-coveted, cult status-havin' Yeezys. But they are still stylish nonetheless.
Here are seven snazzy alternatives.
1. Adidas Tubular X
These are all-black, athletic, and awesome. They are more of a high-top but who cares! They are stylin'. ($120, adidas.com)
2. Mi Tubular Primeknit
You can make your own with the Mi Tubular Primeknit because #custom. ($170, adidas.com)
3. Ultra Boost
There is some white in the Ultra Boost, but it's still in the Boost family and has a similar look. ($180, adidas.com)
4. Pure Boost 2.0
The Pure Boost 2.0 also has a white sole, but it's still a snazzy sneaker. ($120, adidas.com)
5. Supernova Sequence Boost 8
These kicks have a splash of red in them. But they are still a suitable replacement for those Pirate Black Yeezy Boost 350s that you don't have. ($130, adidas.com)
6. Solar Boost M
See! There are so many other options. The Solar Boost M shoe proves that Yeezy Boosts aren't all that, right? OK, they are all that, but still. ($100, adidas.com)
7. Energy Boost 3
Don't you love the little uptick at the nose of this shoe? ($160, adidas.com)
