Rumors of a Yeezy basketball sneaker have been ongoing for more than a year now, specifically after Kanye himself laced up an unreleased high-top sneaker during an open run at UCLA. As we approach the start of a new NBA season, Kanye has once again stepped out in the YZY BSKTBL sneaker, which will release in 2019 according to sneaker source @theyeezymafia.
The sole looks to feature the beloved Boost tooling, reminiscent of Kanye’s other Yeezy sneakers as well as the Adidas Crazy Explosive worn by the likes of Kristaps Porzingis, Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins and other Adidas NBA endorsers. Thus far, the YZY BSKTBL kicks have surfaced in a grey/black colorway as well as an all-black rendition.
Earlier this month, ‘Ye stopped by The WGCI Morning Show in Chicago and spoke about the Yeezy sneaker line, including the YZY BSKTBL sneaker. When asked when fans can expect the sneakers to take the court, Kanye told the hosts, “Definitely this year.”
