After a few lacklustre releases towards the back end of last year, a brand-new colourway marks a return to form for the Yeezy Boost 380.

As the follow-up to the iconic 350 v2, the 380 always had some very big boots to fill, however the new collection got off to a great start with the prototypal “Alien” colourway breathing new life into a stagnating Yeezy project and becoming one of Ye’s most talked-about releases in years.

The first offering proved so popular, in fact, that for a while it appeared the 350 v2 was finally set to receive some competition as the Adidas imprint’s most popular silhouette. The initial success didn’t last long though, as things took a turn for the worse in the run up to Christmas last year, with the Yeezy design team deciding to focus much of their efforts on the 380.

The releases came thick and fast, and while some of the designs weren’t too shabby, there were one or two that should definitely have stayed on the cutting room floor. As a result, the 380 had started to lose a bit of steam, but we’re pleased to report it’s now back with a bang with the upcoming “Alien Blue” colourway, a fresh new take on the silhouette’s much-hyped first makeup.

Featuring the archetypal Primeknit upper that’s decorated with the model’s trademark camo-inspired patterns, Yeezy has opted for a light grey and white reflective look. Despite flaunting an attention-grabbing upper, it’s down below where this update really comes into its own, as the Yeezy team has opted for an icy blue, semi-translucent midsole that really catches the eye, while the glow green side stripe also ensures this is one that will certainly not go unnoticed.

With Ye going back to the drawing board, hopefully this forthcoming addition can reignite some interest in the collection.

The Yeezy Boost 380 “Alien Blue” is expected to drop sometime this spring, although right now no firm release date has been put forward. Stay tuned for any updates when they become available.
