Introducing the Yeezy 350 Roshe, a viable alternative to the Yeezy Boost 350 that will be made available for purchase this week.
Many have compared the highly-anticipated Yeezy Boost 350 to Nike’s Roshe One even before they were released and we can see why. So it was only a matter of time that someone would come up with a Roshe x Yeezy reiteration. Well, the wait is over. Sneaker customizer, Austin McAllister, aka @amaccustoms on Instagram, has gone and done it.
In an interview with MTV Austin said “To be honest with you, I really wanted the Yeezy Boost 350 from Adidas and I struck out. So I did the only thing I knew to do, and created my own”.
The 19-year-old who has been customizing sneakers for the past four years, painted the upper of a grey Roshe One by hand and even managed to mimic the centre stitching, side panels and heel tab of the Yeezy Boost 350. A set of identical Yeezy rope laces are added too. So if you genuinely like the look of the 350s and are not willing to drop a stack on an original pair which go for S$1,000 and up right now, the Yeezy 350 Roshe is a viable alternative.
Austin added, “I think the main thing that separates my Yeezy customs from the actual Yeezy Boost is the price. I’m offering my customs for $179,” Austin explained. “Also mine will be more available. If customers strike out this Friday on my release, they’ll have another opportunity to purchase when I restock them on July 24!”
