Continuing his love for neutral-colours, Kanye’s next take on the 500 came in the form of the “Salt”. The model once again uses premium suede and mesh across the uppers for a high-end feel that sits neatly with the colorway.

December 2019 saw the Yeezy 500 silhouette reimagined into a high-top version.
