Fans of the Yeezy 500 “Utility Black” hold onto your hats because your beloved colourway is about to receive a welcome restock!
The last Yeezy 500 to drop was the pastel pink “Soft Vision” colourway released last November, and after no new iterations of the silhouette since then, at long last the Yeezy 500 is finally back – and this time it comes in a familiar form: the much-loved “Utility Black” that first bounced onto the scene in the summer of 2018.
Ever since the first Yeezy 500 – known affectionately as the “Desert Rat” – dropped back in 2018, the pioneering silhouette has divided opinion among sneakerheads, with one half of the community viewing the design as edgy and visionary, while the other half believe chunky “Dad” trainers should have no place in modern society!
Crafted from a combination of mesh, suede and leather, with its off-the-wall oval-shaped lacing system this futuristic model is still one of Ye’s most ambitious productions to date.
With no anticipated changes to the sneaker’s design, expect the same stealthy construction in monochromatic black that we were treated to last time out. As before, the midsole utilizes Adidas’ Adiprene cushioning technology, which is a common feature on the Yeezy 500 and provides additional comfort and support for the user.
With some pairs still fetching up to £500 on StockX, news of the restock will come as a blow to those hoping to get as much as they can on the secondary market. But for those desperate to get their hands on a pair who were previously put off by the eye-watering price tag, your luck may have just changed!
Depending on where you stand in the Yeezy 500 debate, you may or may not be happy to see the restock of the “Utility Black”. But whether you like them or not, this is one eye-catching design that isn’t going away any time soon.
The restock will drop in November this year but as of yet there’s no information on pricing or size availability. For more Yeezy 500 trainers, head over to our resale market where sneakerheads can find exclusive pairs for competitive prices.
