YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 CMPCT
The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 CMPCT “Slate Red” is a monochromatic red colorway of Kanye West’s casual shoe in a modified, streamlined design. A February 2022 release, the “Slate Red” Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Compact succeeds the shoe’s launch colorway, the “Slate Blue.” Like its predecessor, the “Slate Red” appears in a design that utilizes similar components of the original 350 V2 but with a few alterations. The Primeknit upper appears in a similar style to the adidas Yeezy Basketball Knit shoe and features shades of eye-grabbing red. The 350 V2 CMPCT is equipped with a traditional lacing setup in spite of its sock-like appearance, albeit designed in a “quick-lace” style that is a departure from the look of the original 350 V2. Like that shoe, however, the Compact is complete with a full-length Boost cushioned midsole. The “Slate Red” joins the adidas Yeezy Foam Runner “Vermillion” in reigniting West’s penchant for all-red-everything sneakers, a trend the Chicago native helped popularize with his Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” in the early 2010s.
