Planning to buy a pair of Yeezys and wondering if they’re comfortable enough? Let’s find out!
All Yeezy fans will confirm the fact that yes, Yeezys are one of the most comfortable sneakers out there. Among the various Yeezy editions, the popular Yeezys 350 and 380 are claimed to be the comfiest of the lot.
Before we comment any further on their comfort it's important to note that you must get the appropriately sized shoe for it to be comfortable. Yeezy shoes usually tend to run small so it’s best to refer to our article on their sizing before getting a shoe of your choice.
One major reason Yeezys 350 are one of the most popular shoes in the line, is that they’re extremely comfortable to wear. In fact, some users describe wearing them as ‘walking on clouds’.
According to this article by Far Fetch, where they interviewed different influencers about the comfort of Yeezys 350, most of them said that the Yeezy 350 were super comfortable to wear. They’re lightweight, cushioned, and fit like a sock due to the Primeknit upper wear- all of which makes the on-foot experience impeccable.
However, they do run a little small so make sure to go a size up for a more comfortable fit.
Yes! According to a Reddit user, the Yeezy 380 feels like heaven on feet. They have an insane amount of boost which gives your feet the cushion and comfort you need to keep going all day long.
According to influencers the Yeezy 380 are definitely top competitors for the most comfortable Yeezys. Compared to the Yeezy 350, the Yeezy 380 has a little more shape and support in the heel, making them better-suited for gym and basketball. However, some complain that the increased amount of cushion in Yeezy 380 makes them a little unstable to wear on walks.
If you have wide feet or are in between sizes, you can always go half a size or a full size up for a more comfortable fit
While the Yeezys 500 differ from the 350 version in the sense that they don’t have a cushioned sole. They are considered to be more comfortable for longer wear due to their adiPrene sole.
The Yeezys 500 sport a more supportive Adiprene sole that provides arch support making the shoe more suitable for those that need to wear them for a long time. It also has a mesh panel upper making it breathable and moisture-wicking.
If you want to cop a pair of Yeezys to wear at the gym, I feel like the Yeezy 500 would be a good choice.
Like every other Yeezy shoe, the Yeezy 700 is also lauded for being comfortable. It is considered a midway between the pillowy softness of a Yeezy 350 and a rigid shoe for long-hour wear.
The Yeezy 700 does have a bit more padding compared to other, more comfortable models of the shoe. This takes away from the toe space of the shoe and might make your feet feel a little cramped. That can always be fixed by going a size up from your original size when buying the shoe.
However, the V2 version of the shoe has improved on that front. They have removed most of the padding and made the upper design of the shoe with primeknit, making the shoe roomier and more comfortable.
Of all the Yeezys, the Yeezy 700 are said to be great for gym wear or to wear as running shoes because of the boost in the midsole plus the roller knit+premium leather upper that make the shoe both comfortable yet robust.
The Yeezy foam runners are considered one of the most comfortable Yeezys out there. They have an extremely soft cushion sole that molds to the shape and size of your foot, making them ideal for long wear.
The foam runners are also considered to be more durable compared to other foam shoes of a similar kind. Even though they were questioned for their galactic appearance, they now remain one of the most popular shoes in the line due to their comfort level.
It’s also nice that you can just slip these on, without the fuss of laces or straps. I personally feel like that’s always an added bonus for casual shoes!
Yes! Yeezy slides are extremely comfortable thanks to their thick sole and roomy yet snug fit. Some users prefer wearing their Yeezy slides instead of shoes because they’re so much more comfortable.
Again, you can just slip these on when you have to and wear them all day long without worrying about cramping your feet or sweating into your shoes.
The Yeezy slides are great for casual hangouts at the mall, beach trips, or just any day where you don’t want to make an effort in the footwear area.
The Yeezy 350 V2 and Yeezy 380 are considered some of the most comfortable shoes of the line, they are followed by the Yeezy slides and Yeezy foam runners.
It really depends on your personal preference and the occasion. If you’re aiming for a smart-casual look, then Yeezy 380 or 350 make a better option since they’re proper sneaker shoes.
However, if you just want a casual, comfortable slip-on type of shoes then the Yeezy foam runners or Yeezy slides might be a better fit for you, whatever look you think is more your style.
If you’re wondering if you can wear your Yeezys on runs or at the gym, I have discussed that in more detail in other articles, be sure to check them out!
