While YEEZY continues to churn out eye-catching remixes of its wildly-popular 350 V2 and 700 V3 models, Kanye’s camp now seems keen on shinning a spotlight onto its signature 500 High lineup. Littered throughout the brand’s archival vault are a rash of garment and footwear designs that tastefully position functional sportswear sensitivities against rugged military-inspired cues—this new sneaker/boot hybrid being a prime example.
A subtle tri-colored palette consisting of blue, brown and black materializes up top, with each color adhering to its own material makeup. Blue-tinted neoprene formulates the majority of the base, while brown suede overlays and tumbled black leather strips surround the upper construction. Elsewhere, a toggle lacing system sitting by the tongue, in addition to the chunky pod-style rubber sole unit resting below round out this new design.
