Kanye West’s fifth original shoe design for adidas, the retro-leaning 500 silhouette, seems set to be updated with a new high-top cut.

The leaked images show a two-tone upper in navy blue and gray, and the shoe’s customary AdiPRENE sole unit, while the new high-top cut of the collar extends above the ankle. Commenters on social media were quick to compare the new YEEZY 500 high top to other athletic sneakers like the Nike Air Jordan 7, Nike Air Max 2 Uptempo, and adidas Crazy 8.

What do you think, does the sneaker look better as a high top?
