Before taking a detailed look at the Adidas Yeezy 500 Taupe Light, let me walk you through its history!

Adidas Yeezy 500 | History

Adidas Yeezy 500 History
Via Dribbble

After working with Adidas from 2015, Kanye released hit after hit, most of which sold out instantly.

Adidas gave Kanye full creative control, meaning he decided what the end products looked like. As a result, almost every Yeezy is unlike anything else on the market.

Sneakers such as the Yeezy Foam Runners and the recent 450 are great examples of this. However, no matter how much they’re joked about, Yeezys continue to sell out and be profitable.

The Yeezy 500 debuted in 2017 and although they sold out quickly, the 350 V2 remained king. According to reviews, the 350 V2s were superior when it came to comfort and they were more mainstream.

However, after the legions of colorways, the 350 V2s started becoming monotonous. Thus had a fall in resale values while the 500s simultaneously became more sought-after.

The recent Adidas Yeezy 500 Enflame, for example, is a very profitable sneaker. To estimate resale for the Adidas Yeezy 500 Taupe Light, let’s head over to StockX.

Adidas Yeezy 500 “Blush”

Adidas Yeezy 500 Blush Resale
Flight Club

Retail price: $200

Peak Resell: $1,100

Release Date: 02/16/2018

Colorway: BLUSH

The Adidas Yeezy 500 Blush features a light tan upper, a lighter iteration of the Adidas Yeezy 500 Blush.

These dropped right in time for the NBA All-Star weekend in 2018 and sold out instantly. Uppers consist of suede, mesh, and leather. Mesh covers the underlays while suede eyelet and toe overlays blend right in.

A matching adiPrene sole unit completes the look.

On the secondary market, these sell for around $550 per pair. That’s a very decent gross profit of $250! I wouldn’t expect as much from the Taupe Light colorway, however, it will definitely still be profitable.

This iteration of the Adidas Yeezy 500 features a close to identical color tone to the 500 Blush, however, dons a slightly darker shade.

Mesh underlays feature a lighter tan color relative to the suede and leather overlays. Suede eyelet panels and toes sit atop lighter tan mudguards.

Underfoot, unconventional adiPrene-elevated midsoles also feature a similar hue, giving the entire shoe a subtle monochromatic look. Heavily patterned outsoles complete the design.
