adidas YEEZY 500 High “Tyrian” Releasing in 2020
Reported earlier this year by multiple sources, the upcoming YEEZY 500 High “Tyrian” is just one of a bevy of YEEZY BOOST releases pegged for 2020 — and the second high-top edition of the 700 to hit the market. And whilst we’re yet to lay eyes on the prospective pair, it’s nickname gives us a good indication as to what we can expect later this year.
Tyrian, also known as Tyrian Red and Imperial Purple, is a reddish-purple natural dye that’s secreted by several species of predatory sea snails. Its extraction is an ancient process, where the acquisition of the dye involved tens of thousands of snails and substantial labor, and as a result, the dye was highly valued. Naturally, colors varied between blue-reds and purples, but it is modernly reflected in shades of maroon.
Based on the color’s background, we’ve whipped up a speculative mock-up of the release — but please note, we’re yet to sight the sneaker or its materials, so what you see is subject to change, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated when first looks arrive. A release date for the “Tyrian” YEEZY 500 High is yet to be announced, but you can expect these to arrive in the first half of 2020, so be sure to keep your eyes locked on our Twitter feed for updates.
