Here’s the Best Look Yet at Kanye West’s New Yeezy 500 Sneakers Coming Out in 2018

Another day, another look at a new unreleased Yeezy style.

The latest glimpse comes courtesy of close Kanye West and Virgil Abloh associate Tremaine Emory, who is also the co-founder of No Vacancy Inn. On his Instagram story, Emory provided fans with the first detailed look at a new colorway of the Yeezy Season 6 sneakers, which were revealed in June.


Along with these new images came more details about the shoe, including a nickname: the Yeezy “Desert Rat” 500. The suede and mesh-based sneakers feature a tonal upper with the retro midsole tooling pulled straight from Kobe Bryant’s 1999 Adidas KB8 3 signature sneakers.

In addition to this new look at the “Desert Rat” 500, Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter and shared a nickname for a cream-colored style, dubbing it the Yeezy “Mud Rat” 500.

According to Yeezy Mafia, the Yeezy 500 will begin hitting retailers spring ’18.
