Adidas 'Yeezy Boost 350' Pirate Black Official Release Date is Feb. 19 - New Design or Rerelease? [Where to Buy, Price & Photo]
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 in Pirate Black is hitting store shelves Feb. 19 as sneaker heads await the release of Yeezy Boost's Season 3 collection. But, is the Pirate Black a new design or a just rerelease?
Kicks On Fire reported that, amidst rumors that Adidas was releasing an updated design for Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black, it looks like there will be no changes to the footwear when it returns to store shelves next week. The news outlet further stated that the Adidas website has posted an update of the stocks on its website and it features the same colorway that was released the first time. The speculated "minor tweaks" to Pirate Black are actually non-existent in the website update.
Sneaker News reported that the footwear restock will still be selling at its original price of $200. It also confirmed that the design will not include any of the blue lining or white stitching that was previously rumored.
Yeezy Boost 350 Pirate Black was first released in August 2015, Hyperbeast reported. It is expected that all Adidas stores in the U.S. will carry the restocks. For the rest of the world, sneaker lovers can also score a pair at Foot Locker stores in the U.K., Australia, Canada, Paris, Germany and Spain.
Meanwhile, in preparation for the unveiling of Yeezy Boost's latest collection, rap artist Kanye West, the man behind the designs, teased eager Yeezy Boost 350 fans with a photo of a brand new all-white design on his Twitter account.
Hot New Hip Hop reported that this all-white colorway looks different from the Beluga all-white customized pair released for Season 2 but the sneakers still follow the general cut and shape of the 350. It also appears like the shoes has a Primeknit pattern so that it looks smoother than other Yeezy Boosts.

GQ reported that the photo tease actually shows different shoes, with the other one in a tan mesh colorway. The pairs also appear to have ridged midsoles. The men's magazine describes the latest collection as more translucent than previous releases. However, the white version might be a little too high maintenance as it's likely to get dirty as soon as its worn.
Yeezy Boost, regarded as 2015's most coveted sneakers, will launch its third season collection at the New York Fashion Week in Madison Square Garden, Bustle reported. It will coincide with West launch of his latest rap album as well.
