For such a controversial trainer, there seems to be tons of people who love the Yeezy 500 Desert Rat Blush. Even some of the haters - and there's a lot of them - appear to be changing their tune.
You only need to read the comments across The Sole Supplier Rumours & News Facebook Group to see that the Desert Rat is one of those shoes that just grows on you. Many who bought purely to resell with absolutely no affinity for the chunky silhouette have found themselves suddenly gassed when they arrive in the post. Could the Yeezy 500 be the next 350? It might not be as sought-after right now but trends like these usually take a while to kick in.
That said, if you're currently rocking this trainer, consider yourself a pioneer. For many of you, it might seem daunting pairing such a unique shoe with an appropriate outfit. To make it a little easier, here's 5 ways to style the Yeezy 500 Blush Desert Rat.
Those skinny jeans are a big no-no when it comes to the Desert Rats. Anything that tight will just accentuate the overly bulky silhouette which isn't necessarily a good thing.
Instead, you'll want to choose a more loose fitting jeans or at least on that isn't glued to your leg. Cuff the bottoms with a tight pinroll because no trainer looks good with boot-cuts.
There's no denying it; Kanye West is a marketing genius, even using wife Kim K to promote his label. For months, the head of the Kardashian clan was spotted wearing thick joggers paired with the unmistakable 500s. It's now considered the staple look for this shoe.
If you really want to wear them like Ye, tuck those socks into the pants. It may be a little too much for some as it brings even more attention to what's on your feet.
If you're wanting to make a statement, a pair of cropped jeans usually does it. The look can be more dramatic depending on the length you choose. The one shown pictured draws the eye to those adidas Originals socks and manages to make the Yeezy 500s appear less bulky than they are. If you can pull this off, it's a great way to rock any Yeezy style.
If conventional joggers are a little too, conventional, maybe you need something heavy on the branding. Thanks to the likes of Off-White, repeated and oversized branding is all the rage right now.
Pair with some socks that are just as loud for a true hype beast look that's guaranteed to grab attention.
Let's face it, the Yeezy 500s were made to be worn with shorts. This outfit inspo courtesy of @ryxn_dh goes heavy on the matching Yeezy apparel. A pair of cream Calabasas socks adds a nice touch as do the thick jersey shorts.
It's clear to see that the Yeezy 500 Desert Rat Blush looks bangin' with shorts!
