The Nike Air Yeezy is one shoe that will be included in “Top 5 of the Decade” lists across the board. All three colorways of the Yeezy are going up in resale price by the day, so some owners are growing more and more hesitant to wear their crispy pairs, and we can understand – the shoe is tough to find and deadstock pairs swim above $700. But, for those who treat their gems and grails like GR Dunks and wear ’em without regarding for the surroundings, there’s a way to give your beat Yeezy’s a second life – but with a catch. Here’s a look at a pair of the Nike Air Yeezy in Zen Grey that had been put through a cycle in a washing machine; the shoes itself don’t look very used but the owner might’ve felt a wash was necessary – and the results are pretty good. However, the toe-box lost the all-over embossed Y texture and is now a uniform grey-suede finish. Still need a pair in your life but don’t want to shell out the dough? RIF out in Los Angeles has this exact pair for sale at a reasonable price of $354, so take a look at the gallery after the jump if you’re considering buying them or if you want to see the results.
