Yeezy season continues. With the recent announcement of Yeezy Season 8 comes the release of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Desert Sage’. This marks the 6th Yeezy Boost V2 release in 2020, not including the reflective releases. These are definitely the more unique releases of the year. Only one that comes close to being as unique is the ‘Tail Light’ release that was only available in Europe.
When I say that the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Desert Sage’ is unique I don’t mean that it’s going to be turning heads on the streets. I just mean that recently, the Adidas Yeezy Boost V2 350 line has been putting out some simple colorways recently and ‘Desert Sage’ goes against that. Don’t get me wrong, it is still fairly simple but definitely not as simple as other ones.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2
The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Desert Sage’ utilizes a simple colorway but there is a splash of vibrancy with an orange heel strip. The body comes in a controversial ‘Desert Sage’ color. The reason I say controversial is because the color to me appears to be grey. I have asked people around the office and we have ended on a 50/50 split between people saying it’s a light green or grey color. I will say that I am partially colorblind but usually I am only affected by dark greens and light reds. Let us know what you think below about the color.
The stripe in the very middle of the sneaker is very easy to see as a grey and no one at the office disagrees. The midsole of the sneaker is a light green and that is also very apparent. Honestly, I know most people haven’t loved the recent releases of simple colorways but I loved them. If the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Desert Sage’ didn’t have the orange heel strip then it would have been an easier sneaker for me to love.
How & Where to Buy the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Desert Sage’?
Either way, I know I don’t speak for all sneakerheads when I say that I don’t particularly enjoy the orange heel lining. But I will say that this is a pretty nice release from Adidas. They have announced that there will be a family size run so expect there to be a substantial amount of inventory. Usually when Adidas has announced a family size run, the sneakers tend to be easier to buy on release day.
Shiekh Online Raffle
Shiekh is taking the hassle out of release day by offering an online raffle that is available to everyone. All they have to do is download their Shiekh app and they will get access to the raffle. The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 ‘Desert Sage’ raffle will close a few days before March 14, 2020. The winners will get notified on March 13, 2020.

Shiekh In-Store Raffle
Shiekh will also be conducting an in-store raffle for those in the Culver City area. They will hold a live raffle at their Culver City Westfield Mall location at 5pm on March 14, 2020. They’re doing this so that those who don’t get lucky in the early part of the release day will get a second chance here.
