How Is The Adidas Yeezy 500 Desert Rat Performing DB2908?

Sharing is caring!

I didn’t even know that the Adidas Yeezy 500 Desert Rat was releasing this Saturday. I found that out when I was looking for the release date of the Low Top cool grey 11. That is an indicator of how slowly but surely certain Adidas sneakers are becoming irrelevant. That led me to study the performance of the Desert Rat on third party marketplaces like eBay. I collected my data from recent sales and I broke it down by size.

THE RESULTS

Size 5: $650 ( March 3rd), $385 ( April 12), $359( April 15), $350 ( April 15), $279 ( April 15), $259.99 ( April 16)

You can clearly see that the price has decreased considerably between March and the release date. The rate of change of the price within 43 days is $10.83 or $11 , so the value went down by $11 every day since March. I think it will remain at $260 for quite some time and may eventually rise up again for when it comes to the size 5.

size 5,6.5,7.5, 8 and 8.5 will not be included in this report since the number of sales recorded isn’t sufficient for me to build a strong case

Size 6: $750 ( Feb 27), $500(April 7)  $340( April 13), $272 ( April 13 auction), $260, $280 ( April 14)

We have somewhat of a similar scenario here as well. The price has been decreasing steadily and it will probably will stay range between $260 and $280 for a while. It might go up within 6 months, I’ll be updating this post.

Size 7: $580 (Feb 27), $580 (Mar 4), $295( Apr 7), $360 (Apr 7), $340 ( Apr 13), $330 ( Apr 12).

This one is a bit tricky, there is no consistency with the price changes but it’s definitely decreasing and is currently staying constant at $330.

Size 9: 9 pairs sold ranging from $384 on March 26 to $299 on April 15th ( Current price +-$299)

Size 9.5: 6 pairs sold ranging from $700 on April 9 to $280 on April 15th ( Current price +-$300)

Size 10: 8 pairs sold between $445 on March 4th to $275 on April 14th ( Current price +-$300)

size 10.5: 8 pairs sold, highest $445 ( March 9th), lowest $275 (April 14th) ( Current Price +-$300)

Size 11: 7 pairs sold, highest $475 ( February 18, April 1st), lowest $280 ( April 14th) ( Current Price +-$300)

Size 11.5: 11 pairs sold, highest $500 ( April 11), lowest $270 ( April 15) ( Current price +-$280)

Size 12: 12 pairs sold, highest $595 ( March 18), lowest $275 ( April 15) ( Current price +-$300)

Size 13: 6 pairs sold , highest $500 ( March 27), lowest $270 ( April 160 ( current price +-$280)

this is the price distribution for the size 6 with respect to time. You can see how the price dropped drastically since February.

REMARKS

One thing is for sure the price of the Adidas Yeezy 500 Desert Rat is decreasing with time. It probably remain at $300 for the next couple of months and might even go further down later. What is causing this? Maybe folks are just not interested anymore in Yeezy’s or  the shoes are overpriced. Let’s not forget that this Saturday Nike released a lot of sneakers i.e OG shadow 1, off white vapormax, Kobe Protro. So Adidas might have to rethink its release strategy as far dates are concerned.

I’ll be interested in knowing what your thoughts are on this.
