Since we announced that the adidas YEEZY Boost 350 V2 “Beluga 2.0” would be released via ballot at Sole Superior this Saturday, November 25, there have been a ton of questions asked.
For avoidance of doubt, we have prepared this set of FAQs. Please read and pass it on to friend who might benefit from the information.
