Kanye West has been spotted wearing the shoe for some time no. And it has attracted some buzz, with fans excited at the prospect of a Yeezy performance shoe. And we have now seen multiple colorways expected to release later this year.
Adidas Yeezy Quantum
Some time ago now, we heard that the shoe had been banned from the NBA. As a result of having too much reflective material on them. As it could distract in-arena spectators as well as the fans watching on tv.
We also heard over a year ago that the shoe would debut in the NBA. So the reason for such a delay is probably as a result of Adidas and Kanye, having to wait until they have been given the go-ahead to do so.
The shoe is also expected to release in a lifestyle and basketball version. Similar to how the Yeezy 350 V2’s have released in a reflective and non-reflective pair.
And this is speculated to be the same changes, with one pair missing the 3M material. So it is allowed to be worn in the NBA, and the lifestyle pair with the 3M, as the shoe was originally intended.
In Kanye’s interview with Forbes where he showed off his collection of unreleased samples. Many viewers spotted a slightly altered version of the Yeezy Quantum, so it is unclear which Quantum we will receive, but it is finally looking like we won’t have to wait long to find out.
