Yeezys are expensive so it’s important that you get the right size when buying one.
While it depends on the style and type of shoe you’re getting, most Yeezys aren’t true to size and some of their popular styles like Yeezy 350 and Yeezy 500 tend to run small for most people. However, some of the styles like the Yeezy 750 can run big as well.
Their sizing can be super confusing, especially if you have never owned a Yeezy before! This is why I have put together this guide so you have a better idea of Yeezy shoe sizing and fit.
Each Yeezy shoe has a different silhouette so it’s not simple to comment on the general aspect of Yeezy sizing. That being said, no, Yeezys aren’t always true to size- they tend to run small for most people. However, some models like the Yeezy 380, Yeezy 700 V2, and Yeezy Quantum can fit true to size given you don’t have wide feet.
If you have narrow feet, you might find some models of Yeezys like the 700’s to run big for your feet. However, most Yeezys are either true to size or tend to run small; they rarely run big.
One exception might be the original Yeezy 750 boots, which might run a size big.
This depends on the type of feet you have- wide or narrow. But generally, Yeezys tend to run small for most people. For some of their popular models like the Yeezy 350 V2 and Yeezy 450s, you might need to go half a size or a full size up for them to fit properly.
Since Yeezy slides aren’t close-toed and snug, they fit true to size despite the large silhouette. When buying Yeezy slides, I recommend getting your actual size for a comfortable fit. Going a size up will decrease your grip on the shoe, impacting the comfort level.
Generally, Yeezy slides do not run small and fit true to size. However, if you have very wide feet or plan on wearing the slides with socks, I recommend going half a size up but not more than that or they’ll be too loose to be comfortable.
The Yeezy 700 is designed as a more roomy, comfortable shoe so it usually fits true to size. However, if you have wide feet or are in between sizes, it’s recommended that you go up half a size for a more comfortable fit.
The Yeezy 700V1 usually fits true to size but since it has a compact toe area, it might crowd your toes, especially if you have broad feet. I recommend going half a size up on the Yeezy 700 V1 to avoid cramping your feet.
The Yeezy 700V2 is probably the prototype of Yeezy shoes that fit true to size. They usually don’t run small or big so I recommend getting your usual size when buying a 700 V2.
The Yeezy 700V2 typically does not run small. They usually fit true to size since most of the body comes from padding and underlying material instead of the insole. Getting a size up for Yeezy 700 V2 might result in a loose shoe.
The Yeezy 350 comes in two different silhouettes, the 350 V1 and 350 V2.
According to most Yeezy fans, the Yeezy 350 V1 usually fits true to size so there is no need to size up. However, the latest Yeezy 350 V2 has a much tighter fit so you might want to go a size or half up when buying them.
The original Yeezy 350 V1 typically does not run small and fits true to size. However the predecessor version, 350 V2 is a tighter fit and usually runs small.
The Yeezy 500 comes off as a large shoe at first glance. But surprisingly, it does not run big! In fact, it’s similar to the Yeezy 350V2 and may run small. If you have small or narrow feet, the Yeezy 500 may fit true to size for you, but it’s recommended to go at least half a size up for a more comfortable fit.
Yeezy 500 is pretty similar to Yeezy 350 with regards to sizing so they usually run small, especially in the toe area.
I recommend buying half a size bigger than your usual size to avoid discomfort.
While the Yeezy 500 may appear to be a roomy shoe, it does not run big. It can either be true to size or run small.
The Yeezy 380 has a sock-like fit with a high ankle collar. So depending on the type of feet you have, the Yeezy 380 can either be true to size or they can run a tad bit small for you.
If you want space to wiggle your toes and avoid discomfort, I suggest getting half a size bigger than your usual size.
Typically, the Yeezy 380 could run small. The sock liner is a little snug so if you’re wearing them with thicker socks or if you have broad toes, the shoe could feel a little too tight for you.
Usually, the Yeezy 380 does not run big. It can either fit true to size for people with narrow feet or it can run small for the rest of us.
While there hasn’t been a relaunch of Yeezy 750 since 2019, I’m putting this here in case the infamous boots make a comeback!
The original Yeezy 750 ran a little too big for most people, but it may fit true to size for people with broad feet. For the general population, I recommend getting a size down for a more snug fit.
