Yeezy colourways, what do they mean?

2019 has already seen a whole host of new additions to the Yeezy portfolio. In June alone we saw a combined seven new colourways for both the 350 and the 700 silhouette. Kanye West is making no indication that he is slowing his production down with a whole host of other potential releases also being teased for the rest of 2019. Since 2015, not only has the volume of product being released intensified, the names of the product have become more and more obscure. Long gone are the “Pirate Black”, “Copper” and “Green” variations. What we want to do is to have all the new Yeezy names explained. So hopefully, the colourways can make a little more sense to you.
