Adidas Yeezy Slides are slip-on shoes offered via Kanye West’s Yeezy brand. Debuted in December 2019, it’s released in a handful of tonal colorways.

Although Kanye has previewed dozens of hands-free, laceless footwear since joining the Three Stripes in 2013, very few have seen a retail release.

First revealed in February 2022 at the Donda 2 listening event in Miami, the Adidas Yeezy Slide Onyx features an all-black foam construction with a soft footbed for comfort. At the base, a grooved outsole adds stability and responsiveness.

This is obviously one of the most universal colors of the slides, and you can tell that they are definitely popular due to the almost triple-digit profit margins.

The black slides go with almost any outfit, and they are made not to really stick out. The shape of the slide is meant to mold with your foot as it is, so the black is meant to almost disguise the fact that you are wearing the slides at all.

The onyx black colorway will obviously hide most of the wear that is made obvious on white sneakers such as Converse. Especially with the fall months ahead, these can still be a great option. Many people like to wear these with socks and jeans.

Bone

  • Retail Price: $60
  • Average Resell Price: $131
  • Colorway: Bone
  • Release Date: Tuesday, May 31, 2022

The Adidas Yeezy Slide Bone (Restock Pair) features a slightly different composition than the original Adidas Yeezy Slide Bone that debuted in the fall of 2019. Instead of a smooth EVA foam construction, it has a pebbled, more textural touch.

At the base, a grooved sole and cushioned footbed complete the design.

Why Yeezy Slides Are Popular

Slip-on shoes/slides are a game changer and have been for a while. The ease, efficiency, and also minimal look that these slides bring are one aspect of their popularity and rapid rise.

The pandemic, although a totally negative situation, also helped the development of the slides in a massive, massive way. Staying at home obviously created a unique need and want for slides, which Yeezy was able to easily meet.

In 2019, Kanye’s current ex-wife Kim Kardashian teased the new and improved Yeezy slides for kids! They featured EVA foam rubber with serrated soles in the infamous monochromatic earthy Yeezy tones.

It dropped in December of 2019 in adult sizing, right around the time of the COVID outbreak. Kanye dropped two colorways at that time: Desert Sand and Bone.

The price range is incredibly cheap, at only $60, and that allows almost everyone to purchase, for retail, that is. For purchasing for reselling, continue reading…

Why Resellers Should Care

As a reseller, you should always be in tune with what is selling and what is popular.

What’s popular is what’s going to sell, and what’s going to sell is what’s already sold out, which means there is room for profit. As a reseller, you should always be paying attention to current trends.

How can you do that? Google. It’s the greatest tool available for resellers. Check out culture websites and articles, and check Google analytics to see what’s on the up.

Knowing what the rest of the world is after will allow you to never purchase a brick again and always continue to make a profit off of the pairs that you are purchasing.

Can Yeezy Slides get wet?

Kanye’s shoe rotation into the sandal-like slide has been noteworthy in every way. Part croc style, part Yeezy style; these slides have an amazing interaction with water. Rather they remain unaffected. They are waterproof, so you could conveniently slip them on whenever and wherever.

Do Yeezy Slides last long?

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.

How can I tell if my Yeezy slides are real?

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.

Is Yeezy Slides squishy?

Adidas did change up the texture last year and I will say that the texture on the newer Yeezy Slides actually makes the shoe a little bit stickier on the foot. So, if you’re judging by squishiness, the most squishy of these two are for sure the Yeezy Slide. The Yeezys are insanely soft and squishy on the feet.

Why are Yeezy Slides popular?

And, surprisingly enough, Kanye hit all the checks with the Yeezy slides. It was the best loungewear buddy, the sneaker to get you out of the door in no time, and more. It was pretty easy to rely on these slides during a pandemic. No one had time to lace up their kicks.
