It’s not hard to see the appeal with the Yeezy 700 Utility Black. When it first emerged, many fans of Kanye’s adidas collaboration were quick to label this as his most striking colourway. It’s a bold claim but one that might have some truth given the popularity of all-black footwear.
Luckily, you won’t have long to wait as the Yeezy 700 Black launches this summer. Stock is yet to be confirmed but this will be another global release. Not only launching via adidas UK, these are rumoured to go live across plenty of stockists! That’s good news as this is arguably the most in-demand Yeezy 700 of the entire year.
With many of today’s contemporary releases vying for attention, this understated colourway is a refreshing change. Kanye doesn’t opt for bright colours or eccentric design. Instead, the focus lies on premium detailing with the addition of hairy suede and buttery soft leather. As always, that chunky midsole comes loaded with Boost for unrivalled cushioning across all surfaces.
The oversized trainer would be entirely tonal if it weren’t for that gum coloured outsole. It’s just the right amount of contrast that somehow puts even more attention on those stealthy uppers.
