It’s been a consistent few months with new Yeezy releases. The brand is kicking off the Fall season with the latest release for a new colorway of one of its most popular styles: Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin.

The ‘citrin’ colorway will come in both reflective and no reflective versions.

Yeezy continues to be one of the most sought after brands for sneakerheads.

It’s one of the most comfortable shoes on the market, but also one of the best shoes for flipping.

The billion dollar sneaker resale market is more than ready to get their hands on the latest drop from Kanye’s sneaker collection. Are you ready to provide the demand?

Yeezys are the perfect chance to turn your sneaker passion into a nice profit.

History of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2

Since joining forces with Adidas, the Yeezy Boost 350 model is easily one of the top styles created by Kanye West. The model has a running history of high demand models that continue to shock the sneaker community with each release. After numerous colorway releases of the original model, Yeezy has developed the V2 edition with slight alterations.

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin is a unique twist on the popular style. After initial photos previewed the shoes, many people quickly compared the colorway to the Lundmark colorway release. An up-close look at the shoes reveals much more detail added to the Citrin style to differentiate the two styles.

The Citrin colorway blends a light tan, light gray, and bright yellow color to create a unique color combination across the entire shoe. It also features color accents including a translucent salmon-colored gum bottom and a yellow-neon tinted strip.

Yeezy aficionados are accustomed to the pull tab on the heel, but this model does not include the feature. You can still look forward to the unbelievable comfort of the shoe. It will also maintain the signature Adidas Boost technology.

The latest release will include a reflective and non-reflective version of the shoes.

Under normal light, both shoes appear the same. Hold the shoes under appropriate light, and particular areas of the woven material reflect with 3M details intertwined within the design.

Based on the trend of Yeezy, the reflective style of the sneakers is always more limited and gets a separate release.

For sneaker resellers, the unique design of the shoe means the potential for a quick sell-out and high secondary market demand that you can take advantage of.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin Release Date

The sneaker world will have back to back releases for the non-reflective and reflective version of the Citrin colorway. The even better news is that the shoes will release in full family sizes, which will include kids and infant sizes.

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin Non-reflective will release on September 23. The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin Reflective will release on September 24.

The sneakers have the perfect fall-time color, so it’s ideal release time for the shoes. If you’re marking your calendar for the release, it’s important to note that the shoes will release on a Monday and Tuesday, respectively. It’s a first for the Yeezy brand, so it could be interesting to see how the time of release will affect the sales.

Another thing to note is that Yeezy is also releasing the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cloud White model just a few days prior on September 21.

It’s the first time that we’re getting three Yeezy releases all within a few days of each other and of the same models.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin Pricing for Retail and Resale

It’s no surprise on the retail price for the upcoming Yeezy Citrin sneakers. The men’s shoe will sell for $220 retail, while the kids and infant shoes will sell for $160 and $140 respectively.

Since the reflective style of the shoes will be more exclusive, it will retail at $250. Additional information about the reflective kids and infant sizes is unknown.

The Yeezy Citrin shoes are an excellent buy for sneaker resellers based on the trend of past models and colorways. The upcoming release is interesting for speculating the resell price because of several factors.

Even when considering the Cloud White color releasing just a few days before, and the seemingly familiar colorway of the Citrin, it’s still projected to sell out fairly quickly. Yeezys never stay on the shelves for long and increase in value significantly over time, regardless of the color and size.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin StockX Pricing

For the men’s shoe, the best sizes to buy for reselling are between 7-9.5. Even though the release price is $220 on the non-reflective pair, StockX is already showcasing the resell price upwards of $275 to over $300. Even this price is a steal for the Yeezys. Yeezys can easily go for double the price, giving you a 2x profit on the shoes if you sell at the perfect time.

The resell market isn’t only for men’s sizes. Kids and infant sizes can also bring you nice profits when resold. Kids sizes already are in demand for over $250, and the infant sizes for around $300. With their lower retail price, you can already get a nice return on the smaller sizes.

If you’re already excited about the potential profits on the non-reflective models of the shoes, prepare yourself for the reflective version. The reflective versions of the Yeezy Boost sneakers are always more exclusive and have a higher demand. With the retail price at $250, the pre-release demand is already at $700-900. If you can hold off on selling them for a few months, you can easily see the price surge past $1,000 for the shoes.

How to Buy: Yeezy Citrin

With Yeezys being one of the most sought after sneakers, it may take a bit of luck to get your hands on the newest release at the retail price.

The good news is that the shoes will be releasing in a lot of places, both retail stores and online, to give you a better chance.

Yeezy stockists will all receive the latest Yeezy Citrin non-reflective shoes on the day of release.

Head to your nearest Footlocker, Finishline, and Champs to check availability for buying these shoes on the release date.

Be sure to ask about your local s most stores host raffle drawings and inform you before the release date if you qualify to purchase them.

Buying the Yeezy Citrins online

If you prefer to stay at home, you can purchase the shoes via Adidas Originals and Yeezy Supply. Due to the high demand, these sites filter traffic through throttle queues which prove difficult to break through and require advanced strategies like using sneaker bots.

The non-reflective shoes will have a more limited release in store but will also be available online at the same sites on the release date.

One of the latest retailers to stock the upcoming Yeezy shoes is Dick’s Sporting Goods. Select locations of the shoe will have the shoes available on the release date and also online.

We don’t usually associate Dick’s Sporting Goods with stocking the latest hype. It could be a chance to get the shoes where nobody else is looking. It could also mean a less limited sneaker, and it won’t sell out as quickly, affecting the resell prices.

With the release date quickly approaching for the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin, we anxiously await to see how they will perform on the resell market. If you’re interested in finding out how you could make thousands of dollars from the release, be sure to check out our Hypemaster Playbook Guide for tips on reselling with the Yeezy sneakers.
