Yeezy Returns With the Yeezy Slides ‘Flax’
Yeezy is back with the Yeezy slides 'Flax' and we’ll be going through its release details and resale value.
Yeezy is back with a new colorway of their famous and popular Yeezy slides. The ultra-comfortable slides can already be found in a number of colors. Today we take a look at the Yeezy Slides in the ̵6;Flax’ colorway, and how you can get your hands on them!
Before we take a look at the ‘Flax’ we are going to check out one similar pair, the Yeezy Slide ‘Ochre’, and see how it compares:
Yeezy Slides ‘Ochre’
- Retail Price: $60
- Estimated Resell: $131
- Release Date: Monday, December 13th, 2021
- Colorway: Ochre
- Style Code: GW1931
The reason we chose the Ochre is because of the similarity in color. Both pairs are similar shades of brown, with the Ochre’s being slightly lighter than the Flax.
It is important to note that the retail of this pair was $60, different from the $70 for the Flax. We don’t anticipate that impacting the resell massively, but everything makes a difference.
The Yeezy Slides are incredibly comfortable and great for fall. When the weather is still warm enough to wear slides but cool enough to bundle up in a sweatshirt and sweatpants, these slides are perfect.
The colorways also are perfect for fall as the leaves change and brown become a much more popular color.
The average resell for this pair is just over $130, but we anticipate the Flax to be slightly below that, at around $120.

Where to Buy for Retail
Almost every Yeezy release is available through 2 main sources: Adidas and Yeezy Supply.
Adidas is the normal Adidas site. You can visit and search for the sneakers just before they go live and purchase them with your Adidas account.
Yeezy Supply is the official Yeezy website from Kanye himself. There are usually fewer pairs released on this website, but it is still very possible to cop for retail!
Estimated Resell and Where to Buy
We believe this pair will resell for around $120. We’ve done research on similar pairs and colorways and believe this is the correct price.
If you are not able to purchase for retail, definitely check out two of the most trusted reselling sources in the game:
- GOAT: An online app where sellers can list their sneakers for market prices and buyers can either place bids or accept the seller’s price. Sellers ship their pairs to the GOAT warehouse where they are then authenticated and shipped out to the buyers.
- Flight Club: Both a website and physical store(s) where sellers can give their shoes in to be sold in consignment where Flight Club will take a percentage off of the sale.
We firmly believe that this pair will bring in profit for you if you can purchase it at retail.
Yeezy slides are incredibly comfortable and perfect for the upcoming fall. This colorway will match the falling brown leaves and any other brown clothing items.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can you tell fake Yeezy slides?
Even though the sole is sharp, other features are more rounded and softer: for example, the authentic strap has more of a rounded peak whereas the fake one is more pointy. The tips of the fake slides themselves are more pointy and larger than they are supposed to be.
Are the Yeezy slides durable?
As far as durability, the Yeezy Slide is a surprisingly durable shoe. In fact, like the Yeezy Foam Runner, even after wearing the shoe for a month, there’s barely any wear on the shoe at all.
Are Yeezy 350s comfortable?
The Yeezy Boost 350 is extremely comfortable as long as they’re not too tight. In my opinion, they’re definitely one of the comfiest sneakers on the market.
Does Kanye own Yeezy?
Yeezy was launched in 2006 as a fashion brand. It is owned by Kanye West and was named after him. The brand is famous for its collaboration and sneakers designs.
