Every Yeezy 500 ever made.. And Soft Vision!

Every Yeezy 500 ever made.. And Soft Vision!

This November, Adidas, and Kanye are spoiling the sneaker industry with a variety of Yeezys after a Yeezy-less October! That’s of course if the Yeezy 700 “Teal Blue” doesn’t drop on October 26. Two of the upcoming drops are going to be Yeezy 500 sneakers. Yeezy 500 are the 5th silhouette to release after the 750, 350, 350 V2 and 700. You might say that the 500s are just ugly “dad shoes”, but.. Oh who are we kidding? They are! However, people seem to be into it, so why not make them?

The interesting thing about the Yeezy 500 line is that they ditched the Boost technology and opted for adiPrene midsoles. Funnily enough, the soles of the 500s are their most interesting feature but are not new. In fact, the sole go way back to 1999 when Kobe Bryant wore the third installment of his signature adidas kicks: the KB8 III. We can see in the following picture that the KB8 III soles were altered a teeny tiny bit and used on the Yeezy 500. Now let’s go through a brief history of this silhouette and check out the upcoming Yeezy 500s.

Yeezy 500 “Supermoon Yellow”

The initial announcements dubbed the sneakers “Yeezy Desert Rat 500”, but as time passed the name became a simple “Yeezy 500”. Yeezy season 6 revealed the first installment of the kicks. The catch was that you had to buy the whole pack (which included a hoodie and shorts) for a whopping $760 to have the sneakers. A year later though, “Supermoon Yellow” had a much wider release on its own. The “Supermoon Yellow” features -obviously- a moon yellow upper in different materials like suede and mesh.

Yeezy 500 “Blush”

The second installment of the controversial Yeezy 500 came a year later with two different release dates. The initial release was in February 2018 during the NBA All-Star Weekend and restocked two months later! The shoes used the same upper material as their predecessors but this time the whole shoe came in a pinkish beige “Blush” shade.

Yeezy 500 “Black”

The black colorway of the Yeezy 500 sure is something to look at. However, the shoes have two different iterations. Yes, that’s right. The Friends and Family version has a slight purple-ish hue on the suede and mesh upper while the public release is stark black! Which is why we have two different names for the sneakers. “Shadow Black” is the F&F name and the public release is dubbed “Utility Black”.

Yeezy 500 “Salt”

Well, it’s obvious by now that Kanye has a thing for monochromatic pastel colors on the Yeezy 500. In fact, the colors fit wonderfully with the kicks’ design! The fourth drop of the Yeezy 500s features a cool light grey mesh and suede upper while maintaining the exact same silhouette. The “Salt” colorway released in the last quarter of 2018 which made it the last Yeezy 500 of the year.

Yeezy 500 “Bone White”

2019 brought with it the latest Yeezy 500 “Bone White”. Just like its name suggests, the sneakers don a monochromatic bone white upper and sole. The coolest thing about these kicks is that they come in full family sizes! So you could match with you kids and be the coolest fam on the block.

Upcoming Yeezy 500

Yeezy 500 “Soft Vision”

Adidas and Kanye are both making sure sneakerheads say goodbye to 2019 by wearing the coolest kicks. Which is why we are getting the Yeezy 500 Soft Vision. The upcoming Yeezys are coming in a monochromatic pink mesh and suede upper and midsole. However, we’ll have a gum outsole to break the pinkishness of it all!

Yeezy 500 “Stone”

If you thought we’re done with Yeezy 500, boy you’re so wrong. The Yeezy 500 isn’t over just yet and a new colorway, the Yeezy 500 “Stone”, is expected to drop sometime in November. This colorway actually bears some change in the upper. Instead of the mesh panels we’ve got cushion like neoprene panels, which reinforce the stone look. Sticking to the themes to boot! The rest of the shoe is the standard adiPrene midsole and a gum outsole. Yeezy 500 “Stone” will be the second in line to release in full family sizing.

Are they worth it?

Yeezy 500 is not the prettiest flower in the garden, but it was definitely successful at gaining followers. Even though the kicks lost some of their popularity, they’re still really sought-out and their value is kinda picking up! On another note, Nike is dropping the coolest Air Force 1 collection this fall!
