Features of the Yeezy Wakaran
The Yeezy 500 High Top has a sneaker-boot look with its high-top silhouette. The nylon mesh or elastane upper is replaced with neoprene paneling so as to be more comfortable and weather-resistant for the rain and wind, so you don't have to worry about your feet getting wet. Wakaran continues the two-tone Yeezy, using a selection of earth tones with a dark-colored outsole, a lighter shade for the trimming, and grey across the heel and side.
