How True To Size Are Yeezy 500?

This rule applies to the low-top and the high-top versions.

Upper

The upper of the Adidas Yeezy 500 is made of different materials:

  • Suede: at the toebox area, along the ankle collar, and on 2 pods of the shoe’s sides where the eyelets are formed.
  • Tumbled leather: along two sides of the shoes
  • 3M: the outline of the tumbled leather areas
  • Fused-like fabric (served as a mudguard): on the upper’s bottom
  • Open mesh: on the upper’s top

Heel

The heel of the Yeezy 500 seems a lot bulkier than that of the Yeezy 350 or 350V2.

Instead of applying the PrimeKit, the Yeezy 500 has a base made of mesh, and a top made of suede and leather.

The mesh at the tongue is bouncier than that at the two side panels of the shoes. Plus, there is a piece of synthetic peanut-shaped leather to maintain the shoe’s unique lacing system.

Insole

The Ortholite insole of Yeezy 500 is removable and easy to clean by hand. On the insole, there is Adidas and Yeezy branding. There are also pods in red and yellow but for decor purposes only.

Midsole & Outsole

The bottom of the Adidas Yeezy 500 reminds you of the KB3 – a signature collaboration between Adidas and Kobe Bryant.

The midsole of the Yeezy 500 has a podular-shaped design with bulges protruding on two sides of the shoes. The Adiprene+ technology is applied to the forefoot area of the midsole. This technology is often applied to performance-focused shoe models Adidas, giving you a lot of energy return and bounce back.

The outsole of this shoe is made of 100% with the same podular look as the midsole.
