Your guide to Yeezy Foam Runner sizing, how to clean the Foam Runner, and more.
The adidas Yeezy Foam Runner is not your average piece of footwear. The unusual silhouette cooked up by Kanye West and his adidas design crew may leave you with many questions. At the top of the queries list is, no doubt: “How do Yeezy Foam Runners fit?”
Don’t worry because we’re here to help you choose the correct Foam Runner sizing, and much more about the model, with this handy guide.
Still a relatively new model under the adidas Yeezy umbrella, it would be understandable if you’re not totally familiar with the ins and outs of the Foam Runner. Which is cool with us. That just gives us a reason to talk about everyone we love about the design in this handy size and care guide.
This is the Stadium Goods buyer’s guide to the adidas Yeezy Foam Runner.
Explaining the Yeezy Foam Runner’s Design
We’ll begin by talking about the adidas Yeezy Foam Runner’s design, which as you can see, is unique. The futuristic one-piece shoe is made from a combination of harvested algae and EVA foam. It features large perforations throughout, and a comfortable footbed. The Yeezy Foam Runner was co-designed by Kanye and legendary sneaker designer Steven Smith, who was also behind the adidas Yeezy Boost 700 (and other classic shoes like the New Balance 574 and Reebok Insta Pump Fury.) It debuted in 2020, and its first colorway was the “Ararat,” named after his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s Armenian heritage.
Yeezy Foam Runner Sizing Guide
Sizing the Yeezy Foam Runner can be tricky, so hang with us here. Most people find that the Yeezy Foam Runner fits true to size. However, because the Foam Runner does not come in half sizes, if you do wear a half size, you may want to size up from your standard shoe size. For example, if you wear a size 10, go with size 10 for your Foam Runner sizing. If you usually wear a 10.5, go up to an 11.
And if you’re still not confident in picking a size, head to Stadium Goods if you’re in the New York or Chicago areas and try on a pair!
How to Clean the Yeezy Foam Runner
Cleaning the Foam Runner is a little more straightforward than sizing the shoe. A quick wipe down with a damp cloth and a drop of dish detergent or sneaker cleaner should remove any smudges that have accumulated with wear. That’s it. Just don’t forget to let the shoe dry in a cool, somewhat shaded place before wearing it again.
Colorways: What Are the Top Yeezy Foam Runners?
If you’ve made it this far, you’re probably chomping at the bit for us to talk about some of the Yeezy Foam Runner’s top colorways, and so won’t keep you guessing any longer. The style, like pretty much every adidas Yeezy shoe, has been released in a variety of earth tone and versatile colorways, including the “Desert Sand,” “Vermillion,” and “Mineral Blue.” Some Foam Runners even feature a “MX” or “mix” design with swirls of different colors. For that theme, the “Cream,” “Moon Grey,” and “Sand Grey” are popular choices.
But really, you can’t go wrong with any Yeezy Foam Runner colorway.
