Meet the Mysterious Man Leaking replica Adidas’ yeezy Top Releases

The man walking around our office has his face hidden, with black sunglasses and a cap pulled low masking his identity. He’s in all black, down to the Yeezy sneakers on his feet. It’s not a terribly uncommon sight in New York City media circles, but this guy different. He’s wearing black gloves too, the accessory looking like a signifier that he intends to leave no evidence of his presence behind. And he doesn’t want me to use his real name.

Why the spy act? The man in black is a thorn in the side of Adidas as the leader of
replica Yeezy Mafia, an online group dedicated to leaking release dates and info for high-profile shoes (like those from Kanye West’s Adidas Yeezy Boost line) months before the brand announces them. Since its start in December, 2015, the group has amassed 140,000 followers on Twitter and 233,000 on Instagram. Its members are staying anonymous to avoid detection by Adidas, which could threaten the team’s ability to access sneaker info so early.

While the social media accounts replica Yeezy Mafia runs are public services of sorts, there’s a profit aspect involved. For one, it sells add-to-cart services for releases that help people trick websites and buy shoes more easily. Mafia members also resell some of the Yeezys they buy, and there are occasional merch offerings. But the man representing the group sees what he’s doing as a net plus for the community.

“It’s exciting to do because, besides us, there are very few leaks concerning Adidas,” he tells Sole Collector in a foreign accent. “That’s really, really confidential. I think we’re bringing something positive to the game ‘cause people can plan their upcoming months. We all have lives.”

What, then, is the life this shadowy spokesperson leads outside of the internet? As with most topics, he’s not saying much. He used to work as a developer, but left that career behind to dedicate more time to the pursuit of shoes. He decided to quit after discovering an exploit on a sneaker site and realizing the potential for profit that acquiring and reselling hyped sneakers through online trickery represented.

“I copped like four or five pairs on the same website, it was revealing to me,” he remembers. “I was like, ‘Damn, if I could just use my knowledge to get some pairs and make money off that…’”

His interest in cheap Yeezys is relatively new—he used to collect Jordans, but started buying Yeezys at the 2015 release of the “Moonrock” Adidas Yeezy Boost 350. He says that he’s been able to buy most Yeezys since. A lot of them too—the Mafia’s founder claims to have purchased around 40 pairs of the 2016 “Beluga” Adidas Yeezy outlet Boost 350 V2, which represents an initial investment of $8,800 that would be worth around $34,000 on the resale market today.

He asserts that none of the advantages he uses to purchase pairs or leak info come from a personal connection to Adidas and that nobody in the Yeezy Mafia works for the brand. Where does all the info come from? He is cryptic again on this point: “We just got a crystal ball, that’s it. We are fortune-tellers.”

Replica Yeezy Mafia’s crystal ball has been unable to accurately predict the future a few times, the group is willing to admit that. It’s tough to tell though when they legitimately had bad info and when Adidas has merely moved dates in response to leaked info. Or if any of the other things that can delay a shoe—production issues, shipping delays, etc.—caused dates to move. Take the black and white “Oreo” Adidas
cheap Yeezy Boost 350 V2 for example, a sneaker that the Mafia pegged as a November release in several tweets. November came and went without the shoes, which eventually arrived in the middle of December.

Save Your Money 4: 10 Cheaper Alternatives To The adidas cheap Yeezy Boost 350 Moonrock

 

 

 

Welcome back to another installment of Save Your Money, the recurring feature that proves that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a clean pair of sneakers. This time around we’re going to do something a little different that I feel will help more than a few people out. Let me explain.

With the release of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Moonrock being only a few days away, three things can be almost certain about the latest Kanye West sneaker: One, it will sell out in an instant. Two, Kanye West is one hell of an endorser/influencer. Three, only a fraction of the people trying to get a pair will actually be able to do so.  This will result in a lot of disappointed Kanye/adidas consumers. So what do you do now? Do you succumb to paying the ridiculous resell price that will no doubt be 4 to 5 times the retail value? You could do that, but who wants to spend that kind of money on a pair of shoes, right? Not trying to knock anyone who decides to do so, but the majority of people don’t have that kind of extra cash to drop on one pair of kicks.

Another option you could do instead of dropping close to $1,000 dollars on a pair of Yeezys replica, is perhaps look for another cheaper alternative that may be just as good. Granted, these aren’t “Kanye” sneakers, you can’t neglect the fact that these are adequate alternatives that you’re able to pick up any day of the week. If you’re looking for a shoe with Boost technology, we got you! If you’re looking for a shoe with the same color hue, we got you. If you’re looking for another shoe that utilizes Primeknit/Flyknit, you guessed it, we got you!

Take a look at the 10 options we gathered and let us know if you plan on picking up any of these pairs if and when you’re not able to grab the adidas Yeezy Boost replica 350 Moonrock.

The adidas Climachill Rocket Boost is a far cheaper alternative compared to the cheap Yeezy Boost 350. It comes in the same color hue. It has an upper made out of engineered mesh. It also happens to use Boost technology, which is the main reason why people want to Yeezy 350 Boost to begin with, right? Right?!

In my opinion, the Nike Lunarestoa 2 SE is a far better option than the Yeezy Boost outlet 350. What makes these even better, you can get these anytime you want and you can pick them up at only half the retail price of the Yeezy Boost 350. Did I mention that there’s lunarlon inside the midsole? Comfort and style, it doesn’t get any better than that.

The adidas Ultra Boost outlet shares a lot of the same technology as the yeezy Boost 350. Both come with a Primeknit upper. Both utilize Boost technology on the sole unit, and both models have been one of the main reasons adidas has had a successful 2015. While the Ultra Boost replica is only $20 cheaper, the major difference lies in the availability of the shoe. One can be had at retail any time adidas decides to restock on them, the other you will have to pay a lot more once they sell out the day they release. I’m sure you can guess which pair is which.

Ah yes, the good old Nike Roshe Run. Now considered to be a classic Nike silhouette, this Flyknit version of the Roshe Run comes in a Cool Grey/Wolf Grey that share a bit of the same yeezy boost replica aesthetics as the Yeezy Boost 350. Very casual and modern looking, this is a dope alternative if you happen to miss out on the latest Yeezy. Labeled as a women’s colorway, I’m sure a lot of men won’t have a problem picking up a pair.
