Well, Yeezys have always kept a release standard to maintain their hype. Their limited quantity iteration release makes people drop dead for them. And even break laws to get their hands on a pair. But what happened in 2018?
In 2018, Kanye wanted to keep his 2016 promise. That includes a “Yeezy for everyone” Twitter mantra. So, on this second Triple White release, Adidas organized the biggest drop in sneaker history! Kanye and Adidas promised pre-sale to anyone who signed up on the website. So, did this move take down the rising sun of the Yeezy 350 V2 Cream White? Well, as it first dropped in 2017, resale prices attained almost $600. However, after 2018, resale prices sank to $240. So, yeah, supply and demand laws may have affected the Whites back then. However, resale prices have been increasing lately reaching $800 today!
