2019 promises to be a rich year for the Yeezy brand, which should develop in the Basketball market with a dedicated line.
Earlier in September, Kanye West had teased the first “on feet” images of his Basketball silhouette on Instagram, a silhouette that had only for information its release in 2019. According to Yeezy Mafia, the pair worn by Kanye West is scheduled for spring 2019.
As for the silhouette, the Yeezy Basketball keeps its muscular lines characteristic of Kanye West’s signature and a black synthetic shoe to ensure support. Known as Quantum, the Yeezy Basketball has a top layer that includes an oversized 3M panel. As for the sole technology, it is difficult to identify it at this time. One could imagine Boost, AdiPRENE or Bounce technology, already present in Damien Lillard’s signature pair, condensed in a tubular form.
While adidas is already planning to bring the Yeezy Basketball to young players like Donovan Mitchell or Brandon Ingram, the NBA would plan to ban the Yeezy Basketball because of its 3M panel that could obstruct the visibility of players, referees and spectators.
