Get Hip Hop Style with Adidas Yeezy 500 Trainers for Men

If you're a fan of Kanye West, then you're probably dying to get your hands on a pair of Adidas Yeezy 500 trainers for men from eBay. These uniquely chunky trainers have a retro, 90s-inspired look. With the quality workmanship that the brand is famous for, and the design skills of Kanye West behind them, Adidas Yeezy 500 sneakers are a powerful, statement-making choice for your feet.

Features of Adidas Yeezy 500 trainers

When Kanye West first announced his collaboration with Adidas, few could predict what kind of trainers the rap superstar would produce. He surprised everybody by making chunky trainers his signature. His bulky, 90s-style sneakers have gained fans among celebrities and trainer aficionados, and here's why:

  • The trainers have a unique design, making use of flowing, curved lines on the top and sides. This gives them a distinctive, organic appearance.
  • They use top quality materials. A layer of mesh forms the base of the upper, while strips of leather and suede are used to create the design.
  • They have a distinctive, monochromatic look. Adidas Yeezy 500 trainers use different materials in the same colourway to give a look that's all about changes in texture, not in colour.
  • Their basic shape is very retro, with a classic low top. However, it's set on an extremely chunky sole, which takes them firmly into the 21st century.
Adidas Yeezy 500 colourways

New colourways of the Adidas Yeezy 500 trainers are released periodically. The main thing that they have in common is their monochrome nature. These trainers are usually released in neutral tones, such as Stone, Bone White, and Salt, making them a great choice for people who prefer to avoid bright colours on their feet.

Are Adidas Yeezy 500 trainers comfortable?

These trainers don't feature the Boost sole that is common in other Adidas/Kanye West collaborations. Instead, they use adiPrene+, which gives a firm but still slightly yielding feel, for overall comfort and support. Many fans find that they get a better fit with these trainers if they go up a size, as they can feel a little narrow otherwise.

Can you wear Adidas Yeezy 500 trainers for sports?

The adiPrene+ sole of these trainers is designed to be worn on hard surfaces, such as a street or basketball court. They can be worn for sport, and have a very breathable surface thanks to the layer of mesh. However, there's no denying that they are most commonly worn as a fashion trainer, and most fans prefer to keep them for the street, rather than the gym.
