We've seen countless previews and leaks of the Yeezy Boost sneakers featured in the Yeezy Season 3 show, but until now, the information about the new shoes was based purely on speculation.

However, we can now confirm that these revamped Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers are officially known as the adidas Yeezy Boost 550. This name has been rumored for awhile now, but thanks to a since-deleted Instagram post from ASAP Bari, we can see the official name on the hang tag of this stripe-less black pair.

There are a number of differences between this new model and the Yeezy Boost 350 that preceded it. For starters, the ankle cut has been extended, giving these more of a mid-top silhouette than the 350s—hence the 550 number. Elsewhere, the Yeezy Boost 550 features an updated Primeknit pattern with Zebra-like swirls throughout and a wider knit. Lastly, the outsole on this new pair has a more streamlined shape and a translucent look.

Furthermore, the striped Yeezy Boosts that were recently shared by @upscale_vandal featured lettering that read "SPLY-350," so it appears that there may be two entirely different new Yeezys on the way. 

There's no confirmed release date for the Yeezy Boost 550, but we should know more about these soon.
