Could you believe that Fall is almost over? Winter is coming, fam! And you gotta be winter-ready! But, winter-ready does not mean being forced to wear ugly winter boots. No. We will not allow that, nor will āYe!
He wants us to take on Winter in style. And that is why Kanye came out with a whole new look for the Yeezy 500 thatās about to drop! We got the Yeezy 500 HIGH Slate geared and ready to take on the rain and snow this holiday season.
The Yeezy 500 HIGH SlateĀ
This high-top iteration of the Yeezy 500 is made of elastane fabric, which is basically like Spandex. Youāre thinking of Spandex shorts now, arenāt you? No? Just us? Okay. So, the material is elastane and has parts of leather suede all throughout the upper. It also looks like a cross between a sneaker and a boot, which is pretty awesome if youāre not into wearing classic Winter boots. It comes with a high-cut collar and a strip of rubber that wraps around the boot. And, to finish it off, we got a white midsole made of ADIPRENE and an outsole with the same color. The whole sneakers/boots combo is giving us the Adidas Crazy 8 vibe!
And, in true Kanye form, this 500 sports a neutral earthy slate tone of grey to contrast the bone-white sole with possible future colorways to come!
Release Date: December 16th, 2019
Retail Price: 220$
Let’s Talk Money, Though…!
Now, the price tag on this Yeezy has us raising our eyebrows. A Yeezy 500 for 220$? Bit strange if you ask us. Usually, 500s go for a retail price of 200$, but we guess you gotta pay for that high-cut a little extra!
But for real now, is this Kanyeās way of introducing us into a world of more expensive Yeezys, before they move to the US and it’s all official? We still willing to pay that extra 20 bucks if it means weād get about a 100$ extra off flipping the sneaker later on!
Itās already going wild on resale platforms, with average resale going up to 362$. But this happens EVERY TIME Kanye drops a sneaker that isnāt a 350! Itāll probably simmer down post-release. But, then again, weāve never seen a Yeezy 500 go for about 600 dollars! Insane!
Looking to Cop?
So, enough with the chit chat and letās cut to the chase. Where can you buy the Yeezy 500 Slate for retail? Itās enough that you gotta pay $220 for these now, let alone paying resale cause you missed out. So, check the full list of early links below. And, if youāre not sold on these, we got 2 new Yeezy Boost 350s you canāt ignore. And you most definitely canāt cop without AIO Bot!
