Just after the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow release, we’ll get a glimpse of the dark side of the moon. In contrast to all the nude colorways, the Yeezy 500 Utility Black is set to swoop in and deepen the mood like summer nights in the city.
The Yeezy 500 Utility Black is the last of its kind to drop in 2018, wrapping up the Spring/Summer releases. Unless, of course, Kanye decides to drop the Ultraviolet version. And we wouldn’t mind that happening TBH! The drop of the last Yeezy 500 opens the path for more 350 V2s.
Yeezy 500 Utility Black Features
The Yeezy 500 Utility Black features an all black colorway all over. Upper to sole, and every detail in between, like the laces, eyelets, aglets, external branding, and even the different fabric incorporated, everything is black. All sorts of different shades of black.
But that’s just typical of Ye’s 2018 releases, which follow a primarily monochrome vibe. In fact, the only pop of color we see from Adidas Yeezy is in the Wave Runner 700s due to drop in Fall, and that’s just minimal.
However, Kanye did go to Twitter to share some more colorful samples of 350 V2s and 500s. Could that be the future of Yeezy?

April Fool’s Prank?
Back in April, the Yeezy Mafia posted that the Yeezy 500 Utility Black is up for sale on their website…. for 12K Euros! Well it was 12.345,00 Euros to be exact. That’s the first five numbers, how creative.
And of course, the community reacted:
Is this a joke

Release Date & Value
Judging from the resale value of the Yeezy 500 Blush and Super Moon Yellows, the Yeezy 500 Utility Black could make a decent amount of return for resellers. The two lighter colorways are pretty similar, while the Shadow Black’s contrasting darkness offers a unique twist to anyone’s collection. Especially since it’s the darkest colorway to release throughout Spring and Summer 2018.
Without further ado, the Yeezy 500 Utility Black drops on Saturday, July 7th, 2018.
Just before was the Yeezy 350 V2 Butter, which had an identity crisis earlier this year and changed its name five billion times.
