Kanye West’s “Blush” has already seen two releases – one on YEEZY Supply and the other during NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles – and both have been extremely limited. Now it looks like those unable to cop previously might be getting another crack at ’Ye’s most recent sneaker silhouette.
The aka Yeezy Desert Rat 500 is a new YEEZY running shoe from Kanye West and adidas. The retail price for the shoe is $200. It features a mix of suede, mesh, adiPrene foam, and more. The Super Moon Yellow colorway released on December 5th, 2017 as part of a Yeezy bundle for $760 via Yeezy Supply. The “Blush” colorway initially released during the 2018 All-Star Weekend. The “Blush” colorway is now rumored to release on April 14th,
The original colorway of the is coming back for another release this Summer. Initially debuting on Yeezy Supply as part of a $760 USD bundle, the “Super Moon Yellow” iteration will release all by itself this time around.

The "Feet You Wear" sole was originally designed to help hoopers prevent rolling an ankle, but its oversized look fits in perfectly today with the bulky, oversized sneaker trend of the moment. But where the Yeezy Boost 700 felt more in line with kicks like Balenciaga's Triple S or Dior Homme's newest dad sneaker, the 500 feels entirely unique. Its paneled mesh and suede upper combined with the retro sole make these kicks feel like they belong on another planet—the sort of sneakers we'll be issued to wear on colonization duty on Mars.
