The Yeezy 700 MNVN story
The Yeezy 700 MNVN is the fourth version of the Yeezy 700, an iconic sneaker created by Kanye West, Yeezy, in collaboration with the brand with the three stripes. Following on from the Yeezy 700 V2 and 700 V3, this new version is the latest addition to the Yeezy 700 range, which is already packed with Yeezy sneakers each as different as the next.
Initially christened Yeezy Boost 700 VX, this new silhouette is now called MNVN. Imagined by Christian Tresser and Steven Smith, the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN was popularized in a rather surprising way. On Instagram, rapper 6ix9ine's manager showed off the pair of sneakers donated by Kanye West himself, prior to their official release.
Its acronym, "MNVN", remains a real mystery, however. No one really knows what it means, or what it might stand for. Some believe it stands for "Modern Version".
The look of the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN
This shoe, unlike the other Yeezi 700s and even more so the Yeezy 350 V2s, features a technical nylon upper, which gives it a unique look compared to all previous Adidas Yeezy sneakers. It also features "700" in 3M reflective stripes on the sides.
The only thing the Adidas Yeezy 700 MNVN has kept in common with previous versions is in the sole: Boost technology, which provides the pair with optimum comfort. What's more, in the style of the 700 V3, the Yeezy MNVN is renowned for its innovative elastic lacing system, which provides an easy, comfortable fit.
The highlights of the Yeezy MNVN collection
As well as being original and unique thanks to the material from which they are made, the colors chosen for the upper are not only discreet. Take for example the Yeezy 700 MNVN Orange, the Yeezy 700 MNVN Phospor or the MNVN Bright Cyan, which can be tricky to match with your outfits if you're the kind of person who dresses in a rather monochromatic way. Conversely, in more neutral tones, the Yeezy 700 MNVN Analog, the Yeezy 700 MNVN Geode and the MNVN Triple Black have won over the hearts of sneakerheads.
How to size the 700 Yeezy MNVN?
Trendy sneakers are all very well. Feeling comfortable in them is even better. That's why the 700 Yeezy MNVN runs small. The Limited Resell team therefore recommends that you take a half size above your usual shoe size. Indeed, like many Yeezy Adidas shoes, the Yezzy 700 MNVN's construction and the materials used make it a sneaker in which you can quickly feel cramped if you don't take a slightly larger size than the one you usually choose.
