Do Yeezy Run Small?

Do Yeezy Run Small?

For most people’s budgets, Yeezys aren’t cheap and are not the easiest to get hold of either. So naturally, when you find yourself with the opportunity to purchase a pair, you want to be sure that it’s comfortable and matches your needs.

But how does Yeezy fit? Well, this might sound like an easy question in light of the fact that everyone knows their normal shoe size. When it comes to Yeezys, however, it isn’t that simple. So here what we have developed is a quick size guide to the most popular Yeezys on the market.

How Do Yeezy Fit?

Yeezys are generally pretty tight as the toe box features a narrow design. The uppers of these sneakers tend to stretch with wear but still, you might want to size up if you have wide feet. These sneakers are extremely comfortable provided they are not too tight. Yeezys are rated as one of the most comfortable sneakers on the market.

Yeezy Boost 350 Size Guide

Yeezys sneakers are generally an exclusive silhouette that’s popular all over the world. The Yeezy Boost 350 for instance, is one of the most widely worn models from the Yeezy catalog.

The simple answer to the question of how the Yeezy 350 sneakers fit is that they fit small. To be precise, half a size than your standard size. This makes it a bit different from other Adidas shoes, which generally fit true to size.

On the bright side, it comes with a boost sole and a digitally knitted upper and feels soft to the skin. The shoes are very comfortable and offer good shock absorbency but we recommend that you go a half size up to make things pretty simple for you.

You will also be able to visually notice your toe pushing on the toe box. This in turn will slightly affect the shape of that part of the shoe. Again to avoid this, we’d recommend going just a half size up. This will help to prevent the issue without interfering with the fit so that your foot moves around.

Yeezy 500 Size Guide

At first glance, it’s possible to assume that the Yeezy 500 fits big, especially considering that it’s one of the most successful proprietors of the Yeezy silhouette. The whole thing has been developed on a very clear framework of chunky aesthetics. While that’s just a theory, the Yeezy 500 does not run large.

You might be surprised to realize that the Yeezy 500 actually, and very comparable to the 350 (discussed above) fits just about half a size small. Plus, just like the 350, it’s very possible to get along with a pair that fits true to size.

In fact, the only thing, contrary to the 350, you’ll most likely feel a significant drop off in comfort levels, probably because the toe box in the 500 is a lot firmer. That means the model may not give to your toe as much in comparison to other Yeezys. The toe box is significantly wider on the 500 but still comes up shorter compared to most other Adidas shoes.

Yeezy 700 Size Guide

The Yeezy 500 and Yeezy Boost 350 are quite simple to define in terms of size. They follow the same general rules across the board, but speaking of the Yeezy 700, which is one of the latest and possibly best silhouettes, things aren’t as usual.

The good news is that the shoe is incredibly comfortable, and you can order true to size if you want to. You will have little to no issues with this model especially if you’re someone who isn’t worried about a snug, yet not overly tight fit. That said, if you’re looking for a less restricting fit, then just like the two models discussed above, we’d suggest going a size up.

However, keep in mind that the Yeezy 700 has seen three sets of design changes. That means they are likely to fit slightly differently.

For instance, the OG 700 fits snugly due to the narrow toe box whereas the second iteration of the 700 model (which features the Mauve, Inertia, and Analog colorways) comes equipped with extra pudding and is elastic so that it keeps the tongue in place.

This makes the shoe naturally tighter and therefore for both the 700 versions, we’d recommend going the half size up.

Yeezy 700V2 Fit

With the Yeezy 700 V2, which is the third and one of the newest iterations of the silhouette, the result is significantly more comfortable. This is because the extra padding from the second version has been removed and the uppers have been redesigned to Primeknit, allowing for extra room at the toe box.

This toe box is invaluable and provides a true-to-size fit. The 700 V2 also incorporates an Ortholite insole and a material underlining. These features make you feel like you’re walking on boost, and thus we would recommend ordering your standard size in the V2 models.

The Bottom Line

There you have it, the answer to how Yeezy fits, irrespective of what model you choose. As you may have already figured out, the Yeezy silhouette is said to run smaller in comparison to other Adidas shoes. Overall, Yeezys are some of the most comfortable sneakers around as long as they don’t fit too tight. Those with wide feet might want to consider going half size up for a snug fit.
