Whichever side of the Yeezy spectrum you're on—"them sh*ts are trash," "I need these in my life," etc.—one thing's for certain: you can rest a little easier knowing that the official release of the "black" adidas Yeezy Boost 350 is over and done with. With nearly every physical retailer selling its pairs via some type of raffle, it was literally a mission just to have a shot at buying a pair.

Nonetheless, our very own Speedy Morman took to the streets and tried his luck at various NYC boutiques for the sake of broadcast journalism since he'd already secured a pair via adidas Confirmed app. Watch the video above to see just how hard it was to get in on the latest Yeezy hysteria.

And if you're feeling really lucky, enter our Yeezy giveaway for a chance to win a pair. Yup, no in-store raffles here.
