When there is a collab between Kanye West and Adidas on the horizon, you can expect sneakerheads to be all over it. The partnership is among the most celebrated in sneaker history and the pairs are often produced in limited quantities, hence the clamor for them. The Yeezys are especially known for being sold out within minutes after their official release, and in the case of the Adidas Yeezy Powerphase, it is no different. But this time around, they are touted for being among the most affordable of the Yeezys, and that’s saying a lot considering the price point for previous collaborations.

Release date: March 2017
The Yeezy Powerphase was originally released in an off-white colorway back in March 2017 and were sold exclusively at Kanye West’s online store, YeezySupply, where supplies were sold immediately. New pairs were released a few months later, during which they still proved to be popular. The sneakers which are currently available in off-white, gray and black were actually based off on a 1986 sneaker by the German shoe manufacturer, the Adidas Workout II, which is what gives the former its retro appearance.
We’ve already mentioned that the Adidas Yeezy Powerphase is among the most reasonably priced of the Yeezys, but what you get for the shoe isn’t actually all bad compared to other models. The material feels premium, and the leather doesn’t feel constricting to the feet at all. Its monochromatic design is also a selling point for the pairs as it does not make styling too much of a chore. Your feet can breathe through the shoes too even with a day-long use; they have functional perforations and mesh to allow air to go in and out of the shoe.
Comfort is a great plus for these kicks, but the leather upper which is often described as soft and buttery has been reported not to hold up as expected. As with all other Yeezys that generate much attention from sneakerheads, this one is a challenge to get ahold of because of the limited pairs and the price that potentially shoots up as soon as it is resold.
