First seen at the NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles back in February 16 and 17, the Yeezy 500 “Blush” was only available for limited release on Adidas’ Confirmed App, but now, fans of the dad shoe runner hybrid may well get a chance to cop a pair without having to shell out resell prices.
Known as the Desert Rat 500, the tan coloured shoe combines premium cow leather, suede and mesh with nubuck detailing to make the upper, and is equipped with adiPRENE+ cushioning absorb impact while a rubber sole provides traction.
What’s the damage? A pair of these goes for about RM950 and releases on this weekend on the 14th of April at the Adidas Originals lot in Suria KLCC. This will be a first-come-first-serve basis with regular queues and via Waiting Room Launch for online purchase. Just be sure not to repeat the NMD Hu Holi incident and break out into a fight for a pair of these. Or, if you’re looking for something similar with a much cheaper price tag, why not look up the ANTA LA Runner reviewed by our resident botak monk, Bryan.
