Yeezy x Gap prices
While the full collection isn’t currently available to view on the Yeezy Gap official website, items such as hoodies, jackets and jeans can be purchased.
Although many fans hoped to see Gap prices, which typically range between $25 and $100, the prices of this collaboration don’t fall under the same price bracket.
The cheapest item currently stands at $120 – the ‘logo 3/4 sleeve tee’. The other three tee options are priced slightly higher, at $140. The ‘fitted sweatpants’ are $180 while the ‘dove hoodie’, which features a dove print across the back, is $240.
The most expensive items are the matching ‘five-pocket denim pants’ and ‘padded denim jacket’. The pants are available for $220, while the jacket is double that at $440.
How to join the waitlist?
Some items can be added straight to your shopping cart at the Yeezy Gap online store, with each item shipped within six to eight weeks.
For other items, including the ‘padded denim jacket’, you need to join the waitlist. To do that, click here to go to the official site. When you have chosen the item you want to buy, click the ‘join waitlist +’ button on the right-hand side of your screen, where you will be asked to enter your email address.

Fan reactions to Yeezy x Gap prices
Across social media, fans of the fashion brands have been giving their opinion on the new collection – and there have been some mixed opinions.

However, with many expecting affordable pricing, some Twitter and Instagram users don’t appear to be too happy. This expectation came following the previous Yeezy x Gap collaboration in 2020, which had hoodies priced at $90.
