Revising Kanye West’s seminal design, the adidas Yeezy Boost 380 “Alien” distinguishes itself by thinking beyond the futuristic quality that defined its predecessor. The debut pair, aptly dubbed “Alien”, sports a textured upper reminiscent of landscapes of planets yet traveled. It arrives in tonal whites and greys, with the milky translucent midsole overlays revealing a water-damaged like effect. The shoe’s top half is made up entirely of a flexible Primeknit. It features an abstract camo-style pattern that offers both light grey and sleek cream tones, plus stripped-back detailing on the midfoot. The sock-like collar reaches up higher on the ankle than past 350 releases, and the heel presents a new angled shape, tilting in ever so slightly at the top.
