Editor’s Notes: Following the launch of YEEZY pre-season 6 footwear, and after getting a first look at Kanye’s new Season 6 crepe sneaker, we can now confirm that Ye’s forthcoming YEEZY 500 “Blush” are releasing today during All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles.

In one of the more complicated releases thus far (even for YEEZY standards), the drop is going down through various outlets. One of which is the 747 Warehouse Street location in Los Angeles where adidas is hosting a big NBA All-Star event all weekend long.

For those in Los Angeles, you can use the Confirmed app to secure yourself a pair at the Melrose Avenue and Venice Stores today, on February 16. As usual, registration for the Confirmed app will open on February 14.

Select partner stores are also carrying limited pairs, with some already announcing how they will be releasing them on social media. One such retailer is RSVP Gallery (see below).

Finally, YEEZY SUPPLY is an option for those that couldn’t cop through the aforementioned methods.

Speaking of YEEZY, what are your thoughts on Li-Ning’s Wave Runner 700 Lite?
