How is the Yeezy 380 different from the Yeezy 350?
Compared to the previous Yeezy Boost 350 v2, the Yeezy 380 is more shaped as a performance sneaker than its predecessor. The comfort and feel is much different from the 350, Kanye’s most successful sneaker. The Boosts do feel pretty similar though the most notable difference is in the heel of the 380, which is curved upwards. The 380 has a sock-like fit, where the collar of the shoe wraps around your ankle vs. the 350 that has a more open fitting. Another minor difference is the size of the toe box, whereas the 350 has a smaller toe box, the 380 has opened up for a roomier toe box which provides a little more room to move and breathe.
How do I clean my Yeezy 380s?
While the Yeezys are designed for fashion, the mesh can get dirty fast. A few options to keep your sneakers fresh and clean. Since they have a knit upper, they should be treated as a fabric. As for the rubber outsole, you can scrub them with a bristled brush and some quality sneaker cleaning solution. You can machine wash your Yeezys as long as they are washed on the delicate cycle with cold water. However, machine washing could cause more wear and tear than hand washing.
