Editor’s Notes: After an Ultraviolet iteration made its way onto the web, we now get a look at what notorious leakers Yeezy Mafia are calling the “Salt” YEEZY 500 Desert Rat.

While the existence of this colorway and its rumored release in October need to be taken with a grain of “Salt” (pun intended), it looks like the YEEZY 500 model will continue to be released in monochromatic colorways.

We’ve already seen the Blush and Super Moon Yellow hit the shelves, so it’s not inconceivable that we’ll be getting another colorway soon. Especially given Kanye West’s recent Twitter rants have seen him discussing the future and current success of his footwear line.

Yeezy Mafia previously reported that the “Salt” YEEZY 500 would be releasing as an all-white pair but recent mock-ups show that it may in fact be an all-grey iteration.
