Adidas Confirms "Pirate Black" Yeezy 350 Boosts Releasing

Kanye West's Yeezy returns for 2016 with the re-release of the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 "Pirate Black." The sneaker features a black Primeknit upper with red accents and a matching Boost sole. Release date is set for Feb. 19, 2016 at a retail price of $99.

The adidas Yeezy 350 Boost "Pirate Black" may be coming back on Feb. 19., and will reportedly be more widely available this time.

Rumors about an upcoming Yeezy Boost have been circulating recently, with sources like Yeezy Talk Worldwide mentioning the Feb. 19 date. According to Sneaker News, a source at adidas has now confirmed that the original "Pirate Black" 350 Boost is indeed returning on that day.

Sneaker News reports that twice as many pairs will be available this time, which should drive down resell prices and make the sneakers more accessible, helping to fulfill Kanye West's promise of Yeezys being available to all.

UPDATE 2/8: Adidas' Yeezy page has been changed back to show images of the last release, the sold out "Oxford Tan" 350 Boost, although the original page still exists here. Below is a screenshot of the adidas Yeezy page as it appeared this morning.

    Directions: The workshop takes place at the IMBM (Istanbul Center for Mathematical Sciences) which is located on the south campus of Bogazici University, indicated by an X on this campus map. One can find more detailed information here . The adress of the university is

    Boğaziçi University South Campus (Boğaziçi Universitesi Güney Kampüs) 34342 Bebek, İstanbul, TÜRKİYE

    Taxi: Tell the taxi driver to take you to Bogazici University (say: 'Boazichi'). He will take you to the main entrance, labeled as "Zincirlikuyu - Bebek St." on the campus map. From there you can either walk, or continue with the taxi, keeping right at the fork, until you end up at the main square. Note that cabs run on meter, we do not tip cab drivers in Istanbul. From the Taksim area a trip should cost around 30-40TL, from the airport around 60-70TL. In general it is adviced to take taxi's from taxi stops instead of those simply passing by in the street.

    Public Transport: Information about public transport can be found at The 559C (RUMELİHİSARÜSTÜ-TAKSİM) bus leaves every 10 minutes from Taksim square to the university. The stop BOĞAZİÇİ ÜNİVERSİTE is next to the Etiler Gate of the university, which is easily recognizable and will be on your right. It is labeled as "Zincirlikuyu - Bebek St." on the campus map. This takes about 50 minutes.

    Eating on and around campus: There will be lunch at the Faculty Club (Kennedy Lodge) every day. For people staying at the university housing we suggest Teras Kantin, building 10 on the campus map, for breakfast. For dinner there are many restaurants in the Rumelihisarüstü neighborhood (which is by the Etiler Gate of the University): Hazal Ana (kebab), Dalyan Balık (fish), Yenice (home cooking), etc. The Etiler Gate is labeled as "Zincirlikuyu - Bebek St." on the campus map. Or one can walk down to the Bebek-Hisari street, at the bottom of the campus map, next to the Bosphorus and explore the Bebek and Rumeli Hisari neighbourhoud.

    Electricity: Turkey operates on 220 Volts, 50 Hz, with round-prong European-style plugs that fit into recessed wall sockets/points.

    Water: We do not drink tap water in Istanbul. You can buy 0.5-liter bottles of water for 50 kuruş which means 0.5 TL.

    Tipping at restaurants: It is optional. Most people tip around 5-10 %.

    Exchanging money: It is very easy in Istanbul. In Taksim and Sultanahmet, you will see many exchange offices. They do not charge any commission. The spread (i.e., the difference between the buying and selling prices) is around 2%. The spread at the exchange offices at the airport will be slightly worse. You can also of course withdraw TL from ATMs which are everywhere in the city, but they will charge you an ATM fee (a few euros) and their spread will be even worse.

    Credit cards: Almost every restaurant and store will accept Visa and MasterCard. American Express is not as common.

    Blackboard vs. beamer: In the seminar room of IMBM, there are multiple blackboards and a projector screen. It is possible to use the projector and write on the boards at the same time.

    Wireless internet: There is free wireless internet on the Boğaziçi University campus, including IMBM. There is no password.

    Visa to Turkey: Most of the participants coming from abroad will need a visa to enter Turkey. However, this is a trivial matter. Once you land in Istanbul, there will be a desk just before passport control. There you pay 20 dollars or 15 euros and get a stamp. That's your visa. In other words, you do not need to do anything beforehand. (There might be exceptions. Please double-check if you are not coming from the US or an EU country.)

    General Visitors Information: More information on Istanbul for a variety of topics can be found at Frommers.
