Why You Might Actually Be Able to Afford This Yeezy Sneaker
We’re not sure what it is about Kanye West’s Yeezy sneakers, but people go completely *nuts* over them — just getting your hands on a pair is a huge undertaking. And if you’re desperate for a pair… well, sometimes it’ll really cost ya.
For the uninitiated, there are three different types of Yeezys: the low-top 350s that go for $200; the striped, low-top 350 V2s priced at $220, and finally, the high-top 750s that retail at $350. Factor in the markup value and you could end up shelling out close to $2,000, should you decide that you truly have to have a pair.

Well, maybe not anymore. Enter the new Yeezy Powerphase sneaker, which will retail for just $120. The newest addition to the Yeezy family will be West’s most budget-friendly shoe yet. The all-white style will be released by Adidas Originals and are set to launch in the spring. It’ll also have “Calabasas” emblazoned on the side in gold, tapping into West’s Yeezy Season 5 vibes. With that way more affordable price tag, you can count on it going fast.
The designer has been spotted out and about wearing the sneakers, including during his visit with President Trump back in December of last year at Trump Tower in New York City.
