adidas Yeezy Ready To Enter Sports World With First Basketball Shoe

First debuted by Kanye West himself during a brief return to Instagram back in 2018, the Yeezy Basketball is a high-cut hoops shoe with a two-tone grey knit pattern and Yeezy 700-style suede toebox over a mesh base and reflective lacing system. The heel and collar mix a synthetic material with further hi-vis detailing, and the milky midsole/outsole appears as if it houses a full-length Boost cushioning system, a hallmark of most Yeezy releases. Although it was indeed debuted by ‘Ye himself, it’s most recent and most frequently been spotted on the feet of his wife Kim Kardashian. West has long expressed his desire to make sports footwear, and he has released Yeezy 350 football cleats in years past, but as the biggest athletic footwear market in the world, basketball shoes are surely a step up. The Yeezy Basketball has reportedly already been banned from the NBA as its generous dose of reflective accents interfere with lights and flash photography, but that league-imposed ban certainly won’t hold up the masses of Kanye West’s footwear fans.
