As part of Kanye West adidas yeezy 500 high and ‘ busy summer YEEZY release slate, the adidas YEEZY 500 is set to release in a clean “Taupe Light” makeup. A no-frills colorway that’s essentially a slightly darker-toned iteration of 2018’s YEEZY 500 “Blush,” the “Taupe Light” offers up more of the monochromatic style that YEEZY acolites the world over have come to know and love.
The “Taupe Light” isn’t a shoe that needs an intricate description: from collar to outsole, heel to toe, it’s all the same light tan shade. Its main details are adidas yeezy 500 black provided by its layered construction, namely a mesh base overlaid with a leather and suede cage, a suede toebox and oval-shaped suede eyestays. Down below, its wavy adiPRENE midsole takes some cues from adidas Basketball and Kobe Bryant‘s classic KB8 III while outsoles with a blown-up herringbone traction pattern round off the look.
The adidas Yeezy 500 High "Tyrian" is a Spring 2020 colorway that fuses vintage adidas yeezy 500 brown basketball aesthetics with hiking boots for a look in its own right. Only the second Yeezy 500 high top colorway to launch, this version features a navy blue neoprene base along the front, mid panel, and neckline. Supple brown suede and black leather overlays on the toe, mid panel, and collar provide a contrasting look that riffs on hiking shoes.
Unlike the previously released Yeezy 500 High "Slate", this colorway introduces an adjustable lace trim at the top of the black neoprene tongue. Recalling adidas yeezy 500 beige nostalgic technology from adidas archives, both the adiPRENE midsole and Feet You Wear outsole introduce a decidedly nostalgic element to this contemporary design.
