Yeezy 350 V2 Marsh - A Robert Smithson Reference?
The last big sneaker release weekend of January is brought to a close on none other than the Yeezy 350 V2 “Marsh”. In what some would call a very quiet entry to the year, we have an unusual assembly of warm, darker tinted orange, an eerie, swampy yellow, and a highly contrasting clouded grey. The lacing is also the same warm yellow that’s on the classic knit upper. One could imagine seeing the inspiration come from a formal land art artist, such as Robert Smithson. Both artists utilize natural resources as references in their works. It is like Kanye and Adidas were offering an eyedropper sample of what could have come from a still photo of the massive shapes that are erected in their natural habitat and photographed. We see a repetitive motif of obscure and rounded lines in both the shoe and earth art shapes. The muted saturation of color in both works are evocative of a marsh. As for the retail information on the sneaker, there has been little to no speculation on the amount produced. Pricing is still starting at $220 for sizes 6 through 14, while no word on kids or infant options. If it follows a similar stature to the previous release, one could expect there are over five hundred thousand pairs post-production. You should have ample opportunity to secure a pair, even if it is dubbed a “sleeper” by the community at large. In the grand scheme, it will be a great addition to the archive.
