The new shoe resembles the 350 V2, but with less exaggerated elements.

Kanye – being Kanye – may have just debuted the new Yeezy Boost 350 V3 through paparazzi images. The rap and fashion mogul was snapped in Los Angeles sporting a sneaker that resembles the Yeezy Boost 350 V2, but with features that are not as prominent or exaggerated.

The shoe seems to feature a Primeknit upper and encased Boost, similar to its predecessor. This colorway has been dubbed “Alien” and bears a new symmetrical print that has never been seen on prior models.

If this is truly the Yeezy Boost 350 V3, the design has gotten a lot more form fitting and streamlined compared to its predecessor. The knit upper seems more snug, with a tongue that doesn’t gape open. To add to that, the new outsole does not feature the signature prominent ridges of the V2.

Considering Kanye’s note that hinted at 350 V3 releases in 2019 and the uncanny resemblance to the 350 V2, we suspect we could be looking at the new Yeezy Boost 350 V3.

Do you think this is the Yeezy Boost 350 V3?  Is it a worthy addition to the Yeezy Boost 350 line? Let us know in the comments below.
