The G5 version of this urban classic has beel selected by AK247 for its closeness to 1:1 and being the BEST batch right now
The shaggy suede and nubuck texture, grade and colour are closest to retail of all the batches
The mesh hole sizes, direction and colour are on point
The 3M luminosity is the same as retails
The sole is made from a decent rubber compound that lasts as long as retails, and the EVA cushioning holds up to wear also (some inferior compounds flatten quickly and do not return to OG shape after a short time wearing)
The fit is half a size small so if you are a US 8 we advise you to buy the US 8.5
Kanye West and adidas launched the Yeezy 500 ‘Utility Black’ in July 2018. The retro-inspired silhouette counterbalances its bulky form with a sleek, all-black design. What sets this colorway apart from the standard triple-black finish is a singular use of tone – it’s a semi-faded black that coats the combination mesh and suede upper, as opposed to the pitch-black variety that’s more common in the sneaker firmament.
