On Tuesday, Adidas opened its Confirmed app for customers in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago to reserve a pair of the black Yeezy Boost 350s being released on Feb. 19. The app opened and closed within 22 minutes, leaving many empty-handed.
Adidas will still be offering the sneakers to purchase online on the release date, and several select global retailers are carrying the shoes too. Finish Line, Foot Locker, Champs and YCMC are among those who will stock the sneaker. Despite Kanye West promising that his collections would become more widely available, it still seems most retailers are running raffles or giving out tickets for limited stock.
The black Yeezy Boost 350s will retail for $200. This colorway was first released in October 2015, in addition to three other colorways throughout last year. Last week, West showed his Yeezy Season 3 collection at Madison Square Garden, which confirmed that there are more Yeezy sneaker releases to come, as well as a new 1050 boot.
