It should come as no surprise that the Yeezy 500 Utility Black is now sold-out. Retailers including Footpatrol and Offspring went live over the weekend but sizes didn’t stick around for long. Restocks are anticipated though, so keep it locked to @thesolerestocks and turn on those notifications.

For those who did manage to secure this latest addition to the controversial Desert Rat range, you might be in need of some style inspo. After all, this is no ordinary shoe. The chunkier profile can make it slightly harder to pull off. That said, take a look at the 7 ways to wear the Yeezy 500 Utility Black and you won’t go wrong.

Black On Black

For all you roadman out there, this stealthy Yeezy 500 colourway looks especially good with a pair of black joggers. Sure, this isn’t exactly “summer-ready” but it’s always good to plan for the future. Imagine rocking these in the winter months – you might be sorry if you never copped!

Camo Vibes

All-black footwear usually pairs well with camo joggers and this style is no exception. Cuffed nylon joggers can be seen here, best worn without socks and slightly cropped during these summer months. A selection of camo print pants can be found at ASOS.

Socks ‘n’ Shorts

It goes without saying but this ‘Utility Black’ colourway looks bangin’ with shorts! The influencer seen in this picture chose a pair of white socks to give a bold contrast which grabs even more attention. If you prefer something a little more subtle, opt for grey or even black. Kanye’s Calabasas-branded socks are a great option.

His And Hers

It’s not often that a pair of trainers looks good on both sexes. That said, it’s only right that you and bae take to the streets in a matching pair of Yeezys. Is it a bit cringey?! Absolutely – but why let the haters stop you!

RIP Yeezy

You’ve seen it a million times across Insta and Facebook – “RIP Yeezy“. But let’s face it, hype for Kanye’s limited range of footwear is stronger than ever. Don’t be one of those that denies the popularity. Instead, rock this newest silhouette with a pair of RIPped jeans – see what we did there! Shop hundreds of styles at ASOS.


As mentioned, a decent pair of socks has never been more important to the modern hype beast. They’ve become a fashion statement almost as important as the shoes themselves. The stylish guy above chooses to throw in some vibrant colour to an otherwise understated look. Thankfully, this fashion accessory needn’t cost a fortune. Striped styles like the one seen above can be found for £15 or less at END. Clothing.

Pinrolling Perfection

The Yeezy 500 is about as chunky as it gets. These oversized shoes never look good with a baggy pair of jeans – and don’t even mention bootcuts. Given that most denim never fits perfectly, the only tried and tested way to improve the look is by pinrolling your jeans. Just like a pair of joggers, it puts attention back on the footwear.
