12 Adidas Shoes That Look Like Yeezys (Cheaper)

To own a pair of Yeezy Boost sneakers, you’d need to enter a series of lotteries, raffles, and challenges that you have a little-to-none percent chance of winning.

That, or either they sell out within seconds.

Luckily for you sneakerheads, there are plenty of affordable Adidas sneakers that look similar. They aren’t exactly identical, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Here are some of the best Adidas shoes that look like Yeezy. And don’t work about copping these lookalikes. Most of them are worthy additions to your sneaker rotation.

Adidas Tubular Shadow (Yeezy Boost 350)

When you hear the word “Yeezy” you’re probably thinking of the Yeezy Boost 350 silhouette. It might not be the first Yeezy that was released but it’s certainly one of the most popular.

The Adidas sneaker that looks like the Yeezy Boost 350 the most is the Tubular Shadow, especially if you buy the grayish beige color which resembles the Moonrock.

Like the Yeezy Boost 350, the Tubular Shadow features a lightweight knit upper and low-cut silhouette with a comfy, plush sole. However, it doesn’t come with an expensive price tag.

Available in a variety of colorways and materials, the Adidas Tubular Shadow costs somewhere around a hundred bucks. It’s a wallet-friendly alternative to the Yeezy Boost 350’s sleek profile.

Adidas Tubular Invader Strap (Yeezy Boost 750)

So this pair is actually very fun to look at. On the one hand, you can tell it’s not an Adidas Yeezy Boost 750, on the other, man it looks so similar. Introducing the Adidas Tubular Invader Strap.

It has the same boot-like high silhouette and the same strap, and it’s constructed with suede. Just without Kanye’s name on them. We’ll ditch the name if it means getting a $350 pair for $75.

It’s an extremely comfortable shoe and well worth the money. However, I do suggest going in-store to try on your correct size to avoid excessive returns and disappointment.

It’s certainly one of the most unique Adidas shoes that look like a Yeezy.

Adifom SLTN (Yeezy 700)

Yeezy Boost 350 (top) and Adifom SLTN (bottom).

The Adifom SLTN is one of the newest sneakers in the Adidas collection, and as you can see, there are some Yeezy elements within the sneaker.

Personally, I just couldn’t decide whether the Adifom SLTN looks like the Yeezy 700 or 350. It really does look like a hybrid between both Yeezy sneakers, wouldn’t you agree?

As far as comfort goes, I think this particular shoe delivers. It wraps your foot like a gentle hug, from the pockets of foam in the lining to the foam upper. The design looks good too.

If you’re not willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a Yeezy, then Adifom SLTN is a great cheaper alternative that looks simple, sleek, and super versatile.

Adidas Ozweego (Yeezy 500)

Another one of Adidas’ in-house offerings with a Yeezy-like style is the Adidas Ozweego. It’s available for both men and women and comes in a large array of colorways.

The Ozweego is part of a new line of modern sneakers inspired by Yeezy designs. It has many elements similar to the Yeezy 500 but offers an even better value for the price.

Thanks to the new technology Adidas implemented with the Neoprene foam, this sneaker offers great arch support for long hours of wear, while the cushioning and support don’t wear off easily. 

I think the Adidas Ozweego provides amazing value while offering a modern, stylish look. It’s definitely a fantastic “beater” shoe that you can wear every day.

It’s also an Adidas shoe that reminds me of Balenciaga.

Adidas Ozelia (Yeezy 700)

Yeezy 700 (top) and Adidas Ozelia (bottom).

First introduced in 2019 along with the Ozweego and Ozrah (which I’ll talk more about below), the Adidas Ozelia is part of a new line of modern sneakers inspired by Yeezy designs.

I stumbled upon the Ozelia sneaker when I was casually walking in an Adidas store and mistakenly thought that the Yeezy 700s were sitting on the shelves.

It’s a great conversation starter, mainly due to its resemblance to the Yeezy 700. On top of that, parts of the upper are made with recycled plastic, making the sneaker an eco-friendly one.

Adidas Ozrah (Yeezy 700)

Yeezy 700 (top) and Adidas Ozrah (bottom).

Speaking of the Yeezy 700, another sneaker that bears plenty of similarities is the Adidas Ozrah. Both sneakers have very similar silhouettes and wavy lines.

I actually love the Ozrah sneaker because of the midsole. While not as soft as the BOOST midsole, it does provide more energy return for sure, courtesy of the adiPRENE+ foam.

The upper is made of one-piece synthetic leather-like material Wrapped in a sleek TPU cage. There are suede overlays in the front and back that add some nice detailing.

Unlike most sneakers I’ve encountered, the Ozrah has an effortlessly techy look and feel. And the best part is, it retails somewhere around $100 but you can get it cheaper on Amazon.

Adidas Oznova (Yeezy 700)

Yeezy 700 (top) and Adidas Oznova (bottom).

Yet another in-house Adidas sneaker that looks like the Yeezy 700 is the Oznova. It looks similar not just based on the style and design, but also the materials that construct the shoe.

Like the Yeezy 700, the Adidas Oznova is made of an upper fitted with a combination of leather and suede, and those two materials are laid on top of a mesh material. Very solid.

The shoe has the traditional three stripes on the sides, whereas the Yeezy 700 also has the three stripes but goes off in the other direction. It doesn’t get more similar than that.

Adidas ZX 22 Boost (Yeezy 700)

Yeezy 700 (top) and Adidas ZX 22 Boost (bottom).

Before we move on to another Yeezy silhouette, I have to mention another pair of Adidas shoes that look like the Yeezy 700 shoe. It’s the Adidas ZX 22 Boost.

There’s nothing special about this shoe other than it’s clean, simple, and comfortable. The shoe transforms a running-inspired icon into a sleek sneaker you can wear on any occasion.

I actually love the ZX 22 Boost sneaker because of the midsole. The JET BOOST drop-ins on the EVA midsole provide extra energy return, making the shoe super bouncy.

Adidas FYW 98 (Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner)

If you don’t have $300 to spare for the Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner, then your best bet is to buy the Adidas FYW 98 sneaker for just about a third of the price.

It’s a pair of Adidas shoes that look like Yeezy with an uncanny resemblance.

Everyone’s following the dad shoe trend these days, and it’s a big reason why the Yeezy Boost 700 is so popular. I think Adidas made an in-house shoe to capitalize on this trend.

I mean just take a look at both sneakers. Not only are the designs nearly identical to one another, but the color palette is basically the same. In fact, I would consider them twins.

Adidas Alphabounce EM (Yeezy Boost 350)

Yeezy Boost 350 (top) and Adidas Alphabounce EM (bottom).

The Adidas Alphabounce EM is built with an engineered mesh upper in an earth tone colorway that could pass for one of the Yeezy “Oxford Tan” or “Moonrock” silhouettes.

It boasts a streamlined and futuristic design, while the durable Continental Rubber™ outsole provides excellent traction to maximize your performance on the track and trail.

Unlike Yeezys which are made for casual wear, the Alphabounce is made with top-tier support and resilience, making it a go-to choice for athletes looking to push the limits of their endurance.

Overall, I think this is a very nice pair of sneakers. It’s not as comfortable as any of the popular Boost-based shoes but will probably outlast them all, still comfortable nonetheless.

Adidas Kaptir 3.0 (Yeezy Boost 350)

Yeezy Boost 350 Oxford Tan (top) Adidas Kaptir 3.0 Beige (bottom).

Yet another pair of Adidas shoes that look like the Yeezy Boost 350 is the Kaptir 3.0. It boasts a sleek silhouette with a futuristic look and is built with the comfort to match your daily moves.

I think this shoe offers one of the best values for its price. You only need to pay $90 for a pair, but you’ll get sneakers with a full running DNA with a sporty look.

It’s also great to wear on a daily basis, mainly because of the Cloudfoam midsole that provides ultra-soft cushioning and is supremely comfortable.

The beige-colored Kaptir 3.0 in particular resembles the Yeezy Oxford Tan, while the olive-colored Kaptir 3.0 is slightly similar to the Moonrock colorway.

A slightly different aspect of this shoe, however, is that you’ll see an “adidas” text across the sides. I think it lends a unique trait compared to a Yeezy.

Adifom Q Shoes (Yeezy Foam Runner)

Yeezy Foam Runner (top) and Adifom Q (bottom).

The Adifom Q Shoes is the German brand’s take on the infamous clog known as the Yeezy Foam Runner. It’s safe to assume that Ye isn’t going to be very happy once he sees this.

Boasting aggressive curves and sharp lines, the Adifom Q is crafted from a one-piece EVA foam construction complete with a series of cut-outs across the lateral and medial side panels.

It’s basically a sock-like shoe protected by a foam exoskeleton fitted with laces. To finish off the design, a complementary Trefoil at the tongue is the only form of branding to be seen.
