Often described as a chunky dad shoe, retro-fitted in a culture filled with lifestyle runners and performance basketball gems, the YEEZY Desert Rat 500 by many estimations doesn’t subscribe to any label. Which, for our dime, doesn’t require one. A great design can justifiably defy genre and cultivate a space of its own volition.
Kanye West designs are largely found here; wherever here may be. His YEEZY Desert Rat 500 does feature many characteristics of modern-day footwear design. Common yet premium iterations of suede, leather and mesh converge atop the low-cut base that resides over updated adiPrene tooling. Finished in an on-trend blush shade that seamlessly allows the shoe’s nuance to shine through, Hypebeast has vindicated the budding model with on-foot imagery.
The adidas YEEZY Desert Rat 500 “Blush” is slated to release very soon although more detailed information has not yet been revealed. Stay tuned for more.
