The adidas Yeezy 500 High “Slate” is the high-top version of Kanye West’s popular chunky lifestyle design. Several key components of the original low-top Yeezy 500 have been altered on the high-top silhouette, including the addition of a neoprene base that replaces the previously used mesh. Dark slate grey suede overlays cover the entire upper with the material appearing more prominently on the toe, mudguard, and heel. High-end leather overlays can be found on the toe and ankle collar with tonal rope laces sitting on top of the neoprene tongue. Kobe Bryant’s third signature adidas basketball sneaker serves as the inspiration behind the inclusion of the light grey Feet You Wear sole. This is the first colorway released of the high Yeezy 500. Release date: December 14, 2019.
