Kanye West introduces the adidas Yeezy 500 High “Slate”, the high-top version of his popular chunky lifestyle design.
This high-top version of the Yeezy 500 features a puffy neoprene base instead of mesh, which was previously used on the low-top version.
Toe, mudguard, and heel feature more prominent suede overlays in dark slate gray. Tonal rope laces sit on top of a neoprene tongue with high-end leather overlays on the toe and ankle collar.
Kobe Bryant’s third adidas signature shoe has the Feet You Wear sole unit, making the Yeezy 500 even more basketball-like.
