New information has surfaced regarding the Adidas Yeezy Basketball model.
According to Yeezy Mafia, Kanye West’s first performance basketball sneaker will be released in Spring 2019. It will be debuting in the “Quantum” colorway that has been seen on Ye’s feet over the course of the last year. The shoe’s upper is strikingly similar to the Yeezy Boost 350 V2, but adds features like a heightened ankle collar, suede overlay on the toe, and ample 3M hits throughout.
The reflective hits have already stirred up some controversy, leading many to believe the sneaker was going to be banned by the NBA before it could even be worn on-court by players during games.
Stay tuned as more information trickles in regarding the “Quantum” Adidas Yeezy Basketball.
