Adidas Yeezy 500
Could you imagine a sneaker world without the acclaimed Yeezy line of Kanye West and adidas? Probably not in your lifetime.
The rapper already made a career for himself in the fashion world a few years ago. Most of his Yeezys are among the best models the sneaker community has ever seen and he just has the knack to perfect every model there is. Ye could not have imagined that he would hit the bull’s eye with almost all his models.
The Yeezy 500 was the first of Kanye and adidas venture to ditch the Boost technology. These runners came with the Avant-garde notion of ‘feet your wear’ sole in the adidas family. The Yeezy debutante was ideally 20 years old, featuring Kobe Bryant’s signature KB8 III in 1999.
The charmer silhouette was designed to help the basketball players prohibit rolling their ankles on the court. Drafted straight out of old school, the feet your wear sole created a new sneaker trend. The sharp-witted design was established on the concept of natural motion. This hi-tech feature was enacted as an extension for the athlete’s feet. It beautifully mimicked the natural curves and shape of the user’s foot by creating a wide base with an organic curve from the outsole to the midsole.
The Yeezy 500 futuristic sneakers ensured unparalleled stability and reached newfound levels. With this, it proved to be a massive hit amongst sneakerheads. The oversized silhouetted worked sympathetically for the lateral movements.
One of Kanye’s experimental silhouettes, Yeezy 500, made its way in more colourways like ‘Stone’, ‘Blush’. ‘Utility Black’, ‘Tyrian’ and more. The chunky sneaker boy executed this beautiful sneaker collection with an impressive adiprene midsole.
