Where To Buy The Yeezy 500 Tactical Boot "Black"adidas.com
In October 2022, adidas ended its partnership with Kanye West, who goes by Ye.
The adidas Yeezy line started in 2015 and captured the industry. In the years that followed, Ye and his antics positioned adidas to ultimately end the partnership.
Months after the decision, an unseen & unreleased adidas Yeezy 500 High Boot sample surfaced. The tactical boot-like Yeezy 500 High features a suede build with a slimmer build and a padded collar with a neoprene-like mesh build. Additionally, tags on the shoe, reveal that its laces act as a fire starter.
Per images obtained by Nice Kicks, the shoe has a production date of June 2022, months before the Three Stripes’ decision.
The sample pair is just one of the many pairs in adidas’ stale Yeezy inventory that is valued at $1.29 billion USD in revenue. Newly appointed CEO, Bjørn Gulden, addressed the complexity of all the unsold products.
The people that are saying send the shoes to Turkey or somewhere where people don’t have shoes or there has been a tragedy happening, I think you agree that these are not normal shoes.
The value of the product is not the physical value of the ingredients. It’s a brand and merchandise that is sold at a high price.Bjørn Gulden (March 2023)
Additionally, the adidas Yeezy 500 High Boot pair surfaces after rumors that the brand and Ye are exploring a deal. However, nothing has been confirmed via any credible sources.
