Now that the Yeezy 350 V2 Butter dropped, and brought so much joy into the hearts of sneakerheads around the world, it’s time to move on. Move on to a different Yeezy, not a V2 but a great colorway of Kanye’s latest sneaker silhouette. The Yeezy 500 Utility Black release date is this Saturday, July 7th, 2018.
Some of you who haven’t been paying attention before might think that Tuesday, June 26th was the first time we know anything about the Yeezy 500 Utility Black. However, the truth is something else. The Yeezy Mafia took to Twitter to reveal what was previously dubbed Desert Rat back in February. But back then, it was supposed to drop in June.

But they announced the more accurate news via their backup account, on April 25th, 2018. It was then that we knew the Yeezy 500 Utility Black would release on July 7th.

Yeezy 500 Utility Black
After being known as Desert Rat, the name of this line of Yeezys changed to Yeezy 500. This line features a big bulky silhouette, that suits the dad-shoe trend which was first introduced by the Yeezy 700 Waverunners. A real change from the old, simple, and very much loved 350 v2 design.
The Yeezy 500 utility Black comes in a light shade of black, giving it a bit of a washed out look. It offers new and updated uppers, constructed with patches of Mesh, Cow leather, and Premium Suede. The signature adiPRENE+ cushioning of this lines returns in this iteration, with reflective accents found around the outers.
Regardless of the fact that V2s are a lot more desired and accepted, the Yeezy 500 utility black seems to be a good pair! Early pairs found on StockX are being sold for over $550. That’s a lot more than what we’ve seen with any other Yeezy lately.

To be fair to the Black 500, even the highly-coveted Yeezy 350 V2 Butter did not sell for such a price before its release day. Which means the Yeezy 500 Utility Black might actually be a good catch after all. So do whatever it takes, and get only the best tools, to help you cop the Utility Black.
Yeezy 350 V2 Cream White
In other news, a million pairs of Cream Whites were supposed to release in July. However, due to issues producing such high numbers, the release date was delayed. Along with that of the Yeezy 350 V2 Sesame, and Yeezy 700 Waverunner re-release.

The Yeezy Mafia cleared up that the releases had to be pushed back to become a part of the Fall season. A couple of weeks later, they post this Tweet setting things clear for all sneakerheads in this industry.

So we can all expect the Yeezy 350 V2 Cream White to re-release in million, on September 15th, 2018. What was really interesting about that picture, was the wholesale price. Apparently, Yeezy retailers make 100% profit from selling those cream whites, at times when you, my humble reseller will need to work your heart out to make some profit. Maybe it’s time to look up how to become an Adidas or Yeezy retailer!
