Kanye West’s “Sulfur Yellow” Adidas Yeezy Boost 700

Kanye West’s team-up with footwear maker Adidas on the Yeezy line first dropped with the 750 in 2015. It’s going to

collectors upwards of $1,000 or $1,500 to even get near a pair of those. Fortunately, the partnership has been steadily bringing out new editions and limited colors. The new 700 “Sulfur Yellows” are some of the most subtly complex so far.

The new edition Yeezy Boost 700 follows a string of releases that take a big dose of inspiration from the original Yeezy 700 model. The “Sulfur Yellow” colorway has just been added to the creative genius’ Spring release calendar, unveiled courtesy of Yeezy Mafia and expected to be available in the next couple of months. This will continue throughout 2022 as Ye‘s Yeezy footwear catalog is expected to drop out a number of new colorways in the coming months.

The “Sulfur Yellow” color scheme flashes a pale olive-yellow upper transitioning to areas of husk yellow and taupe on the toe cap, with charcoal and tan patterning situated around the sole and midfoot areas of the sneaker.

This is mated with a solid dark oak brown sole unit that sports circular perforations typical to all Yeezy Boost 700 models. In addition, the sneaker flashes its signature reflective 3M on the side as well as underneath the mesh on the midfoot portion of the shoe. Remember, this reflector is a good way to test if your Boost 700s are the real thing.

The new drop doesn’t skimp on its ingredients either, as “Sulfur Yellow” sports the same high-quality materials other Yeezy Boost 700 models are manufactured from. This means mesh, buttery leather, and smooth suede used throughout the sneaker’s construction.

The Yeezy Boost 700 “Sulfur Yellow” is expected to release at a retail price of $240.

Coming soon after news of the “Sulfur Yellow” kicks is the return of the Yeezy Boost 700 “Wave Runner.” First introduced in 2017, the re-release builds off the shoe’s popularity as an in-demand model that has already seen restocks in 2018, 2019, and 2021.

Showing off a striking contrast of “Solid Grey/Chalk White/Core Black,” the shoes flash with a dash of blue and orange on their outsoles and wrap up with neon green laces and sculpted white midsoles.

Protect your skin in style this summer with the best sun shirts of 2024
Better than sunscreen and chemical-free, these tops are purpose-built to fend off those "endless summer" rays.
Man fishing on a boat while wearing an Orvis DriCast sun protection hoodie.

When it comes to dressing for the summer heat, "less is more" seems to make the most sense. Less clothing means less trapped body heat, and that makes for a more comfortable you. For the most part, that works. But this equation doesn't account for protecting your skin against the sun's harmful UV rays.

For outdoorsy types – we’re talking the most adventurous kind, like trail runners, hikers, kayakers, mountain climbers, and so on – wearing less clothing while spending a significant amount of time in the sun can actually do more harm than good. Sure, sunscreen is a thing, and you should definitely keep using it. But that’s also where another problem arises: In order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, sunscreen — even the best natural, reef-safe sunscreen — needs to be slathered on regularly. And, if you’re spending more time outdoors than in, that gets expensive, too. That's where good sun-protective shirts (a.k.a. "sun shirts") come in.
