Everything you need to know about the next Yeezy drop A drop that will last the entire month of August

After last week's rumors and leaks, adidas has finally confirmed a large new Yeezy release that will cover all of next month. The sale will begin on August 2 and then go on during the following weeks so that adidas can handle all the incoming orders, including big returns and some new features.

What models of Yeezy will be available?

Opening the releases will be the Yeezy Slides, available in the Bone colorway starting August 3, followed by the iconic Yeezy 350 V2 in Slate Onyx version on August 4 and in the Bone version on the 8th of the month. The schedule continues, divided mainly between Slides and 350 v2s, while in the press release released by adidas to make the new drop official the company also confirmed the arrival of Yeezy Boost 700 V3, Yeezy Boost 500, and new colorways of the Foam Runner and the Slides themselves, along with the Yeezy Boost 450 and new Yeezy QNTMs.

Where to buy the new Yeezy?

As per tradition, the drop will take place mainly on the adidas website and the CONFIRMED app, along with selected retailers such as Sneakersnstuff, Bodega, Extra Butter, and END. While the official channels will put all available models on sale, it is highly likely that the other retailers will only have some of the sneakers scheduled. And if you're wondering: no, the sneakers will not be available on Yeezy Supply, the official website of the collabo with Kanye West closed several months ago now.

Why does adidas still sell Yeezys?

Last May, adidas and Kanye West completed a deal whereby Yeezy products that had remained idle were put up for sale. An amount of merchandise worth 1.2 billion euros, 15% of the commission was promised to West, while another part was donated to charity, to associations that protect the rights of people who have been offended by the artist's statements. In America, despite the controversy surrounding Kanye West, demand for the adidas sneakers designed by the artist was still booming, and indeed sales were a success. According to adidas, which released its full-year guidance this week, the decision to put the Yeezys back on the market was instrumental in turning the company's fortunes around, a result evident in second-quarter sales.
