Though it has lost a bit of momentum in the past few months, the adidas Yeezy 500 remains one of the most significant in the brand’s product line. Released back in 2018 at a retail of $200 USD, the 500 ushered in something unique, a subversion of the imprint’s current formula. Instead of the typical Primeknit constructions, it arrived composed of luxurious suede materials, mesh underlays, and cushioning adiPrene foam. And ever since its original “Blush” colorway, the model has continued to expand on that very upper with more than a few different palettes.

The Kanye West and adidas partnership reaches newfound levels, as the duo introduce the Yeezy 500 Desert Rat to the party. Following months and months of speculation, the Yeezy 500 made its grand debut with the ultra limited “Super Moon Yellow” colourway in 2018, followed by the "Blush" and the "Utility Black" soon after.

Another hallmark of the 500 is its monochromatic palette. The original colorway of the adidas Yeezy 500 was a light yellow, dubbed Super Moon Yellow. It was initially released in December 2017 and restocked at retailers in March 2018. (Source: www.ebay.com)

The 500 is the first Yeezy not to feature adidas Boost technology. Instead, West opted for a distinctive midsole with adidas Adiprene technology for a stiffer, more supportive feel while maintaining cushioned support with a curved gum rubber outsole.

WEST

In late 2019, West released the Yeezy 500 High-Top in a Slate colorway that, like the Stone version, eschewed the mesh of the original 500 for buttery soft cushioning material. The outer sole came in a beige colorway that harkened back to the original 500, and the retail price was $220. (Source: www.ebay.com)

Kim took it upon herself to showcase the line, including a very public outing in Los Angeles that featured her wearing nine pieces of the Yeezy Season 6 line styled by superstar fashion editor and West confidante Carine Roitfeld. (Source: www.ebay.com)
