How To Clean Yeezy 500 Utility Black

Today we're cleaning the Yeezy 500 Utility Black. This specific Yeezy has become one of the most popular sneakers in Ye and adidas' offering. 

The Yeezy 500 Utility Black features an upper composed of cow suede, premium leather and mesh with nubuck accents. A rubber wrap along the midsole of the foot provides support and abrasion resistance with reflective piping details around the lace eyelets that add visibility in low-light conditions. The adiPRENE+ cushioning absorbs impact and optimizes rebound while a rubber outsole provides traction.

We used products found in our Premium Kit to get these Yeezy's looking fresh again. The Premium Kit contains our Sneaker Cleaner, Sneaker Protector, Odor Protector, and our Premium Brush.

Dirty Yeezy 500 Utility Black

Step 1:

First you will need to prepare your sneakers for the deep clean. You will remove the laces from your sneakers and set them aside. Then you will use our Premium Brush to dry brush any excess dirt that is on the sneakers.

Step 2:

Grab our Sneaker Cleaner and spray around the uppers of the sneakers and focus on the heavily dirtied areas. There are multiple materials on this sneaker so we will have to tackle each material differently. Grab a container of clean water as we will use this in conjunction with the Sneaker Cleaner. First, we should attend to the suede panels. Dip the brush into the water but tap off the excess water as we don't want to get the suede oversaturated with liquid. Scrub in a circular motion and remove the dirt. With the suede sections, immediately use a microfibre towel to dry the suede to maintain the integrity of the material. Once the suede areas are clean you can turn your attention to the leather and mesh areas. Here you can use more water if need be. Wipe off excess moisture on the uppers with a Microfiber Towel.

Step 3:

Now that the uppers are cleaned, turn your attention to the soles of the sneakers. Spray Sneaker Cleaner around the soles, dip your Premium Brush into the container of water and scrub the soles. You may have to apply more pressure on the soles to remove stubborn dirt.

Step 5:

Now you will clean the laces. Place the laces in the palm of your hands and generously spray Sneaker Cleaner on the laces. Rub the laces rigorously together in the palms of your hand and then dip into a container of clean water. Continue rubbing in your hands and dipping in water when moisture is needed. 

Ring the laces out with a Microfiber Towel to remove excess moisture and set aside to dry.

Step 6:

Once your sneakers and laces are dry. Lace up the sneakers and prepare to apply our protective products.

Step 7:

Our Odor protector will help fight off any unwanted odors that build up within the sneaker and keep them feeling and smelling fresh for longer. If the innersole is removable, take them out and spray Odor Protector in the Yeezy and on the innersole.
