The G5 version of this urban classic has beel selected by AK247 for its closeness to 1:1 and being the BEST batch right now
The shaggy suede and nubuck texture, grade and colour are closest to retail of all the batches
The mesh hole sizes, direction and colour are on point
The 3M luminosity is the same as retails
The sole is made from a decent rubber compound that lasts as long as retails, and the EVA cushioning holds up to wear also (some inferior compounds flatten quickly and do not return to OG shape after a short time wearing)
The fit is half a size small so if you are a US 8 we advise you to buy the US 8.5
Initially released in February 2018 as a limited pre-order in New York and Los Angeles, the Yeezy 500 ‘Blush’ underwent a general release in April 2018. Its moniker is a fitting one, as the monochromatic light taupe finish barely registers as a color. The subdued palette is contrasted by a bold silhouette, featuring a paneled mesh and suede upper combined with a hefty midsole reminiscent of adidas’ Feet You Wear’ technology of the 1990s.
