Yeezy 500

The Yeezy 500 is the first Adidas sneaker in collaboration with Kanye West that does not feature the much-loved Boost sole. Although the Yeezy 500 is not about this technology, the sneaker is extremely popular. The sole of the 500 does not have Boost technology, but it still has a story behind it. The sole goes along with contemporary trends of chunky sneakers and fits perfectly in recent years’ trends. Yet it comes from 1999 and is therefore more than 20 years old; it was specially made for basketball players to prevent ankle injuries and because of its oversized look goes totally beyond recent trends.

First release

In 2017, Kanye West began teasing his new Adidas Yeezy sneaker. The rapper often wore oversized sweatpants or short sweatpants with sports socks while wearing the sneakers in public. This helped to build hype around the shoe. It wasn’t until April 2018 that the 500 version of this shoe came out for the first time. The ‘Dessert Rat’ colorway was the first colorway to release; other colorways include ‘Soft Vision’, ‘Stone’, ‘Salt’, ‘Bone’, ‘Utility Black’ and ‘Super Moon Yellow’.

Yeezy 500 low

The Yeezy 500 comes in 2 different versions. One being the Yeezy 500 low, the “normal” release and the Yeezy 500 High. When looking for a new Yeezy 500 you’ll most likely come across the low version the most. This is because this was the first version released. In December 2019 the high version was released. Want to know more about that version? We got you in the next paragraph.

Yeezy 500 high

A new version of the Yeezy 500 was recently released. In December 2019, a high version of the sneaker was released. This one is similar to previous releases but has a higher ankle and looks more like a basketball sneaker. More colorways are expected in the future. So be sure to check out our release calendar, to be updated.

Initially released in February 2018 as a limited pre-order in New York and Los Angeles, the Yeezy 500 ‘Blush’ underwent a general release in April 2018. Its moniker is a fitting one, as the monochromatic light taupe finish barely registers as a color. The subdued palette is contrasted by a bold silhouette, featuring a paneled mesh and suede upper combined with a hefty midsole reminiscent of adidas’ Feet You Wear' technology of the 1990s.


Yeezy 500 ‘Brown Clay’

The adidas Yeezy 500 ‘Brown Clay’ features a drab tone on the upper, which combines ventilated open mesh with soft suede overlays and a reinforced rubber mudguard.

A standalone release followed months later. Sku - DB2966


Yeezy 500 ‘Utility Black’

In July 2018, Kanye West and adidas released the Yeezy 500 ‘Utility Black.’ The retro-inspired silhouette counterbalances its bulky form with a sleek, all-black design.
