In what comes as no surprise, the Yeezy Boost 350s in Moonrock are sold out after Saturday’s highly anticipated release. Stores that carried the sneakers used a range of tactics including raffles for the chance to purchase a pair or receive a pair free. Some even asked customers to wait in line in the days prior to the release to get a ticket to shop. For those that managed to pick up a pair, you’re among celebs such as Kourtney Kardashian and Brooklyn Beckham, who have already been showing off their pairs.
Some retailers also took to social media to announce that they had sold out. Barneys announced on Twitter that they had sold out of the sneakers online at 10:01 a.m.—the shoes went live at 10 a.m., selling out in one minute (yes, you read that right).
Mr. Porter first Tweeted an apology that its site was down and then wrote “The Yeezy 360’s are now sold out globally,” prompting many to call out the online retailer for its blunder in calling the shoes 360s not 350s.
Arlington, Texas retailer Black Market USA posted on Instagram that all winners in its in-store and online raffles had been contacted and that customers should “stay tuned for future Yeezy release information.”

Similar chaos ensued when the all-black 350s were released in August. In recognition of the incredible popularity of the Yeezys, Footwear News has honored West with its “Shoe of the Year” award, to be presented at the FN Achievement Awards on Dec. 2.
The Moonrock Yeezys marked the completion of Yeezy Season 1. In September, Adidas posted a photo on Instagram of a pair of black Yeezy 750 Boost sneakers with the caption “Coming soon.” The brand has not yet revealed when this release will happen.
