The Yeezy Boost 380 Calcite Glow will arrive as a precious gem for those who appreciate the 380 silhouette. Unlike prior releases, which have come in louder colorways, the 380 Calcite Glow gets a more subtle mix of earthy off-white and brown hues that mimic the appearance of raw, unrefined calcite—a type of carbonate mineral.
The Primeknit upper comes in an off-white color with a thin layer of light bone stitching around the ankle collar and color-matched translucent mesh panels on the medial and laterals. The infinite lacing set up weave in and out of the cut-outs in the mesh panel. Traditionalists can opt to cut off the infinite laces and switch them out for the classic pair that comes in the box.
The 380 Calcite Glow gets a chunky, full length encased Boost midsole in a cream color. The yellow-ish hue helps give the midsole a pre-aged look and goes well with the organic colors used on the upper. Its chunky encased midsole, comprising extra-thick Boost, is known for being more comfortable than that on the 350 V2.
Glow-in-the-dark stitching is woven into the upper of the 380 Calcite Glow. When the lights are out, the stitching forms a digital camo-like pattern across the upper that glows. The sides of the encased Boost midsole have a similar luminescent effect.
The Yeezy Boost 380 Calcite Glow will drop in Singapore on October 31.
