The Yeezy Boost 350s remain somewhat impossible to obtain. Kanye West recently showed off a customized pair of tan Yeezy Boost 350s with an orange stripe that was as bright as a traffic cone. Those sneakers were a one-off, though. Regardless, Yeezy Boosts remain desired but the Adidas NMD Runner is a perfect substitute for the sold-out Pirate Black 350s. There was a limited supply of the NMD Runners on the PacSun site, which has also sold the Boost 350s during restocks, but it sold out quick; the NMDs are also sold out on the official Adidas site. That said, you can browse third party sites and shop these suitable alternatives. But be prepared to do your homework to ensure you get an authentic pair and be ready to spend extra.
That said, the NMD Runners are rad since you can dress these athletic trainers up or down, with skinny jeans, leggings, a skater dress, trousers, whatever! That sort of versatility is what makes this sort of shoe so coveted. The NMDs were designed for the urban nomad lifestyle, they go with anything, and can be styled in a variety of ways. That's why stores, both brick and mortar and online, can't keep the Boosts 350s or NMDs stocked.
Adidas NMD Runner, $120, PacSun
It's a snazzy shoe. Plus, the shoes are meant to be durable and are built to last, so you can shell out the $120 and they will last, making the overall cost per wear pretty small. The shoe are so worth the spend from that perspective.
You can still eagerly await a Yeezy Boost 350/NMD Runner restock and/or you can start shopping other substitutes. Or you can do your thing and hit up third parties.
The NMD Runner will surely give your wardrobe a "boost."
There it is from all angles.
Once again, you can seek out subs if the Yeezy Boost 350 remains elusive and out of your reach. There are so many dupes that are equally as stylish and are even less trendy. Happy shopping, sneaker pimps!
