Originally released in 2020, the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN is a new take on the line’s signature dad sneaker, the Yeezy Boost 700. In contrast to its forerunners, the 700 and 700 V2, the only commonalities between this model and those are the silhouette and the midsole. The 700 logo is embroidered in luminous material on a nylon upper, making for a very distinctive construction.
Although the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN, where MNVN is said to stand for “minivan,” might not be as beloved as some of Yeezy’s other mainstay offerings, it still has quite the fanbase. The silhouette, which was formerly known as the 700 VX, was introduced in a high-visibility “Orange” and a more subtle “Triple Black” color scheme. As previously reported by Kanye West, the next sneaker was created with Christian Tresser, a renowned footwear designer who worked for Reebok in the early ’90s, as well as YEEZY Design Director Steven Smith.
From classic white and black color schemes to neon hues and everything in between, the 700 MNVN is certainly among one of the more exciting releases from adidas. In this piece, we’ll take a look back at some of the most memorable sneaker drops over the years.
Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Triple Black
The “Triple Black” iteration of the 700 MNVN is the sneaker’s first official colorway, offering a subdued take on the sleek running shoe while still retaining the signature BOOST 700 sole unit and the shoe’s signature streamlined upper.
Triple black nylon with heat-welded panels and a considerably larger 3M “700” pattern along the lateral replaces the shoe’s traditional mixed-material appearance. This update removes the Three Stripes logo and replaces it with a heel tab. Both the Boost midsole and the rubber outsole have a herringbone traction pattern.
Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Orange
The “Orange” 700 MNVN is a limited-edition colorway of the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN that debuted in Los Angeles and Paris. Nylon is used for the upper instead of the more common combination of materials, with heat-welded overlays for reinforcement. Per the silhouette, the reflective 700 logo replaces the traditional Three Stripes on the outside edge of these orange kicks. The Boost midsole cushions your foot, and the herringbone outsole grips the ground.
Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Bone
A high-contrast color palette is used on the 700 MNVN “Bone,” which is distinguished by an upper made of white polyester with black no-sew overlays at the toe and heel. The sneaker’s no-tie bungee laces make putting them on and taking them off a breeze, and the luminous 700 marking on the shoe’s side panel increases their visibility in low light. The seamless upper sits above a black sculpted PU midsole that incorporates Boost cushioning for a plush walk or run.
Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Metallic
For a muted take on the clunky lifestyle runner, check out the 700 MNVN “Metallic.” The standard upper, made of robust no-sew overlays and grey polyester material with oversized 700 branding in metallic silver, is fastened by no-tie bungee laces.
The lightweight construction rests on a polyurethane midsole that has been molded to serve as the platform for the Boost cushioning technology. The flexible foam material is exposed via the outsole’s herringbone grip grooves.
Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Honey Flux
The MNVN is consistent, with a single-colored smooth upper and prominent branding atop a thick sole, in contrast to the many other silhouettes that prefer to play with tonal color blocking and design.
The primary hue of the “Honey Flux” is a buzzing, sunny yellow as the name hints. You can see the black and silver accents on the heel and toe box, and there’s a big silver “700” hit on the lateral quarter. The toe cap is a smoky black hue, while the tongue, neck, and laces are all jet black for contrast. Underneath, the all-black Yeezy Boost 700 midsole has an ovular cutout that looks to be finished with high-visibility bright material.
YEEZY BOOST 700 MNVN Bright Cyan
The “Bright Cyan” colorway is a natural progression from the previous year’s vibrant green and orange pairs and complements the model’s athletic nylon construction. This Yeezy 700 version is further enhanced by the presence of a huge “700” logo on the shoe’s outside side, which has been given a reflective 3M finish. The Three Stripes-supported silhouette’s accompanying features relish in a sharp black contrast. The BOOST midsole is encased in a matching tooling, which gives the shoe’s striking blue color even more prominence.
YEEZY BOOST 700 MNVN Geode
Another highly coveted color scheme, the “Geode” 700 MNVN offers yet another pastel makeover. The upper is made of lilac nylon with a reflective 3M graphic of the shoe’s signature 700. The sneaker is mostly black with additional 3M overlays, with a black midsole and outsole encasing Boost cushioning. The sneaker, first introduced in 2021, was reissued in April of this year, along with a number of other Yeezy models.
YEEZY BOOST 700 MNVN Resin
The “Resin” colorway‘s unique two-tone style is highlighted by the combination of a light green nylon upper and deeper green overlays. The “700” branding is embroidered in shiny reflective 3M, and there is further embellishment in the shape of smooth black suede with silver touches at the toe box and heel. The tongue, laces, and sock liner are all black to complete the contrast pattern. Black Boost-enhanced midsoles and outsoles that match the upper complete the shoe’s style.
Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN Phosphor
adidas and Kanye West released a laceless version of the adidas Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN “Phosphor” as part of their Summer 2022 lineup. Continuing the brilliant neon yellow style introduced in 2020 with touches of black and reflective 3M, the laceless version provides a modern update.
Furthermore, the shoes are branded with silver “700” marks on the outside sides and Yeezy Globe logos on the insoles. In order to make donning the laceless shoe easier, heel tabs have been added to the uppers. The shoe is elevated by the combination of a white Boost midsole and a black rubber outsole.
