How Do Yeezys Fit? New for 2021

Yeezy sneakers – designed and released by collaboration between Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, and Adidas – have been delivering industry smashing silhouettes and colourways since the collab first launched in 2015. In that time, we’ve seen some incredible combinations that have fomented a true sneakerhead fanbase for the brand. But Yeezys aren’t cheap! The last thing you want is to get home with your brand-new pair to find they don’t fit properly. If you’re shopping online, you want to avoid the risk of a bad fit! So please enjoy this short size guide, new for 2021, for all your Yeezy sneakers!

Yeezy 350

The Yeezy Boost 350 is probably the most popular silhouette made by the brand. So, how do Yeezy Boost 350s fit? You may be surprised to find out that unlike most Adidas sneakers, the 350s actually fit small. They fit roughly half a size smaller than the standard. Due to their flexible fabric upper, it shouldn’t cause much discomfort, so if you don’t mind a snug fit you could certainly go for true to size. However, your toes will likely be right up against the front of the sneaker, which might be noticeable aesthetically. If your toes are pushing up against the inside of the toebox, it is possible that this will warp the front of your sneaker slightly, so to be safe, we’d suggest getting half a size up! But it is flexible enough to work on personal preference.

Yeezy 350 V2

The Yeezy 350 V2 build on the popularity of the original silhouette and brought a slightly sleeker, upgraded design. The 350 V2 still boasts the same flexible upper, but the toe box is brought to a slightly narrower point and drops a tiny bit lower than the OG 350. For this, we’d definitely suggest getting the half size up!

Yeezy 500

You could be forgiven for assuming that the Yeezy 500 fits large. The bulky exterior of shoe played perfectly into the trend of ‘dad sneakers’ and its popularity rightfully took off on release. The chunky aesthetics of the Yeezy 500 – especially when looking at the 500 highs which look like they could be used to tackle a mountain – makes them seem like a roomy shoe with plenty of space inside.

There are two aspects of the 500 which make this untrue. First, the iconic wavy outsoles are incredibly thick, and this reduces the space inside compared to how it looks from the outside. At the same time, the fabric upper of the 500 is far more rigid and inflexible than that of the 350, meaning that you could wear these true to size if you wish, but you’d likely be sacrificing some comfort to do so, and coping with crushed toes! The space is slightly evened out by the wider toe box, but the vertical room is much more restricted.
