If you have been waiting impatiently to get your hands on the new Yeezy 500, you may be in luck. If you’re in Los Angeles next weekend and were lucky enough to score tickets to the adidas 747 Warehouse, you’ll have a chance.
The adidas 747 Warehouse is shaping up to be a sneaker event of the year. The long list of drops already includes collaborators like Y-3, Parley, Bape, James Harden, and Carbon, the CA design firm behind Futurecraft technology. As if there weren’t already enough reasons to attend, today TheYeezyMafia announced that the latest addition to the Yeezy footwear line will be made available early at the event. the Yeezy 500 (previously Desert Rat 500) is a chunky 90’s inspired runner made from suede and mesh, and features the patented adiPrene+ technology. The shoe has been scheduled to release sometime in the coming months, so this latest announcement is a welcome surprise. Along with this news, the leak also confirmed that the “Blush” Yeezy 500 would be made available to the public in March of this year.
While adidas has announced many of their plans for the upcoming 747 Warehouse event, they are certainly keeping some things away from prying eyes. Along with this previously unannounced shoe, rumors are swirling that another new Pharrell Williams NMD Trail Hu will make it’s first appearance in limited numbers at the party. This would come as no surprise after adidas’s booth at ComplexCon showed up with never-before-seen PW NMD samples and some Yeezy Wave Runners for sale. The other Pharrell shoe that may be present is his take on the recent BYW technology that has made a large splash recently in the sneaker community.
Take a look at the images below for a closer look at the new Yeezy 500 in “Blush” as well as leaked images of the new Pharrell BYW shoe, and stay tuned for updates.
