What if Yeezy Borrowed Nike Colourways?

Yeezy 700 'Infrared'

Once arriving in vibrant and modern classics like the Air Yeezy 2 ‘Red October’ and Yeezy 700 ‘Wave Runner’, Ye's recent releases have been confined to a minimal colour palette.

With that in mind, we decided to take three of Yeezy’s signature silhouettes for a date with Team Swoosh.

Yeezy BOOST 500 'Ultramarine'

Storming onto the sneaker scene via the Nike Air Max 180 in 1991, the ‘Ultramarine’ colourway still breaks necks all these years later. The ‘Solar Red’ and ‘University Blue’ colour-blocking looks mega on 2018’s Yeezy BOOST 500, the aggressive 90s colour palette looking right at home on the interstellar silhouette.

Yeezy BOOST 350 V2 'Chicago'

One of the all-time greats of the sneaker pantheon, the Air Jordan 1 ‘Chicago’ still casts a shadow over all other releases in 2020. Elevating the sneaker game to new heights way back in 1985, the ‘Chicago’ colourway has lost none of its original allure, the classic red and black combination seen across nearly every model in the Swoosh catalogue since.

It’s the perfect antidote to the muted colourways seen on the Yeezy 350 V2, one of Kanye West’s best-selling silhouettes becoming somewhat anaemic of late.

The incandescent ‘Infrared’ colourway has already made a surprise appearance on the Nike SB Dunk Low this year, so why not splash it on the legendary Yeezy BOOST 700?

Originally debuting in 1990 on the Nike Air Max 90 (the colourway was initially dubbed ‘Hyvent Orange’ ), the iconic ‘Infrared’ design has graced everything from the Air Force 1 to the Air Jordan 6 over the years.

Still arguably one of the dopest dad shoes on the market, the maiden Yeezy BOOST 700 hit stores in 2017, and looks hotter than ever wearing Nike’s ‘Infrared’ remix.
