How Do Yeezy’s Fit Compared To Nike? A Yeezy Sizing Guide

If you are wondering how adidas Yeezy fit compared to Nike and other key brands, look no further! We tell you the sizing secrets of each of the most popular adidas Yeezy silhouettes.

It’s no secret that toward the top end of the sneaker game sits adidas Yeezy. Renowned to be difficult to cop at retail and known as a brand that dominates the re-sell game. Because of this scarcity and with certain styles selling way over the retail price, once we decide to bag a fresh pair of Yeezy, we want them to fit perfectly.

Are adidas Yeezy and Nike the same size?

No, in general Yeezy and Nike do not have the same sizing. Yeezy run a half size up from Nike. That means if you want to get the correct size, if you wear 7 in Nike, you should get 7.5 in Yeezy.

It’s important to emphasize that it depends on what kind of Nike silhouette you are comparing to and whether it is a Yeezy 350, 500, Slide, or 700 that you’re looking to purchase. It will also differ if you have narrow feet or a wide foot.

Do Yeezy’s run big or small?

When we decide to bag a fresh pair of adidas Yeezy, we only want that they are our normal size. As a general observation, Yeezy shoes fit small, half a size smaller than your actual size to be more precise.

This may sound very obvious, but due to the shape or the materials of some sneakers, we need half a size more or half a size less. One of these cases is that of the Yeezy 350.

How does the Yeezy 350 fit? Size and fit guide.

The Yeezy Boost 350 is one of the most hyped styles in the entire Yeezy collection. Take a trip around the world and you’re bound to come across someone wearing a pair of Yeezy 350s.

Being the most popular silhouette, it is common place in the sneaker community to come across people with normal feet, who have gotten the wrong size. We do not want this to happen to you in your purchases.

The Yeezy Boost 350 V1 is true to size while Yeezy 350 V2 runs small. To be exact half a size less than your normal shoe size. So if you buy some Yeezy 350 in your size you will realize that the toe will tighten more than normal.

Not only will this make them uncomfortable, but it will also cause them to wear out much faster than they should.

Having your toes squeezed to death in the toe boxw ill also cause the shoe to deform and lose its natural shape. To begin with, you will notice that your toes press on the Primeknot upper, ruining the clean aesthetic that the design is supposed to have.

All this has an easy solution, as a rule of thumb buy half a size more than you normally buy and you can avoid all these problems.

Where to Buy Yeezy 350

Retail stores are great because you can try the shoes before buying, but because of the difficulty sourcing a pair of Yeezy’s at retail, this is probably not an option.

For those purchasing on the after sale market you can order your Yeezy 350 at StockX at the rate the market currently decides. The disadvantage is that it is not possible to try on shoes before buying, so you’re buying the shoes without knowing whether they will fit. The best way is to measure your feet and choose your size by the Boost Size Chart. 

How does the Yeezy 700 fit? Size and fit guide.

The Yeezy 700 is undoubtedly one of the most comfortable sneakers and this can be attributed to its Boost sole that also appears in the Yeezy Boost 750 models and the famous Yeezy 350s. However, compared to the Yeezy Boost 350 v2, the Yeezy Boost 700 is much stiffer and less flexible when you step on it, although comfort levels increase after more frequent use.

The issue of sizing is a bit subjective because each person has their preferences but, from my point of view, all Yeezy 700 models tend to run small. I would recommend always choosing a half size up. The reason is that the toe box is shallow and all pairs I’ve worn in my usual size, I felt that my toe was touching the front. Despite this, it stretches a bit with use, so there’s no need to stress if you notice that your Yeezy 700s are a little too tight for you as soon as you wear them.

The latest addition to the Yeezy family is the Yeezy 700 v2, which has the same thick sole as the previous 700, but the upper is made of mesh, leather, nubuck and reflective details. The second version of these shoes comes with an elastic that keeps the tongue in place, plus extra padding, so the recommendation is to order your exact size when you buy this model and if you so have difficulties, consider a thick pair of socks.

Where to Buy?

StockX is a place where you can find Yeezy 700 at affordable prices. Measure your feet and choose your size according to these measures and don’t worry about whether it will fit.

Yeezy 380

The Boost soles on the 350 and 380 give us an underfoot feel that’s pretty similar, but the difference is on the outside. The 380 has a sock-like fit, where the collar of the shoe wraps around the ankle area. Very different from the 350 that are looser at the ankle. You can buy on the after sale market from StockX or eBay.

Yeezy 500

The Yeezy 500 have been designed to look bigger than they are, they look big on the outside, but on the inside, they are narrow and fit quite well. The 500 falls in the same basket as the 350 and for those fans of the perfect fit, it is advisable to go half a size up.

If you decide to go true size and get your usual size, you won’t suffer as much as with a 350. By having mesh uppers and not Primeknit, the silhouette won’t look deformed and won’t suffer as much wear. Thanks to its more robust construction, and even if your fingers touch the sides of the toe box you will not feel the sharp pain that you can feel with the 350 because they are much thinner than the 500 in that part.

You can buy on the after sale market from StockX or eBay or try and catch a drop at retail via the adidas confirmed app.

Yeezy Slides

Yeezy slides tend to run rather small when it comes to sizing. My recommendation is to order them at least half a size larger. If you have wide feet you may even need one size up. You can buy a pair above retail price at StockX or eBay, or you can try and catch a pair for retail via the adidas confirmed app.

Yeezy Foam Runner

The Yeezy Foam Runner actually fits true to size, but since they don’t come in half sizes, if you have wide feet or you’re in between sizes, you should get a size up. You can buy it the Yeezy Foam Runner from StockX or eBay or try your luck buying at retail from the adidas confirmed app.

Yeezy 450 run a half size small, so if you want to buy them, you should get half a size up, or even full size up if you have wide feet. You can buy it at StockX, eBay or for at retail via the adidas confirmed app.
