Kanye West and adidas‘ repertoire of footwear collaborations are growing by the boatload throughout the course of 2021, and one of the newest styles that’s expected to hit the market shortly is the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Light”. Based off of its faint yellow-ish complexion, it definitely evokes memories of the YEEZY 350 V2 “Butter” that launched during Summer 2018, but this variation bears a unique design element: UV sensitive uppers.
When seen in normal light, the kicks show off its off-white PrimeKnit base layer which comes produced with lighter gray shoe strings and heel tab that have been pre-yellowed to proffer up an aged-in aesthetic. However, UV lighting penetrates these YEEZYs, its upper aforementioned upper components are said to be color-shifting. Images of this effect have yet to surface online, but according to YEEZY MAFIA, the uppers transition into a soft pink tone and the stripes shift into an amber hue. BOOST-loaded midsoles are housed by pastel yellow ribs and rounded off with vintage-y yellow outsole that just so happens to match the heel tabs.
