The Yeezy 500 makes on-court debut courtesy of Swaggy P.
If there were any NBA player who was going to be the first to rock the "Blush" Yeezy 500 on the court, the most likely candidate had to have been Golden State Warriors guard Nick Young. After becoming the first to debut the Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 on-court back in 2015, Young once again made Yeezy history.
Last night at Madison Square Garden, Swaggy P laced up the low-top Yeezy 500, a shoe which isn't your prototypical basketball sneaker, although it does take some inspiration from Kobe Bryant's signature Adidas KB8 3. The kicks have only released in limited quantities thus far for $200 a pop, and they do not feature the beloved Boost cushioning as most of the Yeezys do, instead opting for adiPrene cushioning.
Young's choice of sneakers at MSG certainly created a buzz, but he only managed three points in his 14 minutes of action while rocking Kanye's latest Adidas project. The Warriors still picked up a 125-111 victory over the Knicks.
