Your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 "Red," "Copper," and "Green" Buying Guide

Three new colorways are up for grabs.

Three new versions of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 will hit shelves tomorrow, November 23rd. It marks perhaps the one bright spot in Kanye West's otherwise up-and-down week, but is guaranteed to be another trying day for West's fans trying to scoop up his sneakers. The three new colorways are all mostly all-black, but feature different stripe details. One is red, another is green, and the third is copper (perhaps the combo is West's subtle wink at Christmas cheer). Like the previous Yeezy Boost 350 V2, the sneaker features a Primeknit upper, full-length boost sole, and cozy sock-like design. That combined with Mr. West's name once again make these some of the most coveted and difficult to get sneakers of the year. Below is how to maximize your chances of scoring a pair when they drop tomorrow.

How to Be a Quicker, Better, More Yeezy-Aquiring Online Shopper

Check Your Internet Connection
Check out Speedtest.net to see how fast your internet is actually running. Then call your Internet provider to correct any issues or upgrade to the highest of high-speed connections. When thousands of ravenous customers all crash a website, even the smallest fraction of megabyte speed can make the difference.

Use the Buddy System
If you really want these shoes, increase your odds by telling some friends and family to try their best to get them at the same time you are. But don’t inundate them with tons of information, because chances are they don’t care. Simply send them a link, a specific time, the size you would like, and your credit card information.

Type Your Credit Card Info into a Word Doc
You don’t want to be the idiot who gets the sneakers in his cart, only to realize you can’t find your wallet. Write all of the info in a Word document, then simply copy and paste.

Resist the Urge to Refresh
Once a link goes live, remember that the site will be slow. There are way more people on the site than at any other time, all vying for a handful of sneakers. But the way these systems work is in order, so all refreshing will do is kick you to the back of the line. Be patient, hold your place, and make attempts to add your size to your cart about once every minute. Feverishly clicking on the same link won't help.

Or, Don’t Do Any of This
Sleep in, wait ’til these kicks hit the aftermarket, and pick them up for $1,000+ tomorrow afternoon. The choice is yours.

Should You Use a Bot?

Morality aside (paying for a robot to buy kicks faster than human hands can is kind a jerk thing to do), sites like Adidas's work tirelessly every day to prevent these bots from working. Be our guest, but just know that a $125 code is no guarantee you'll get Yeezys, anyway.
