Though his basketball lineage is still in its infancy stages, Kanye West’s YEEZY Hoops division has strong ties to NBA All-Star Weekend. It was back in 2020 when his hometown of Chicago hosted the event, and he took to the streets in military vehicles to unload pairs of his debut YEEZY QNTM BSKTBL on fans who were literally chasing down his convoy. Fast forward to 2022, and he has a new model making waves, and it’s once again set to appear for All-Star weekend in the form of this new YEEZY BSKTBL Knit “Energy Glow”
A very first look at the release doesn’t give too much away, but it does keep some of the same themes seen on the debut “Slate Blue” release, including black knitted collars and laces, reflective heel overlays, and translucent-cream midsoles. Here, though, the upper boasts a bright yellow and olive weave that lends itself to its namesake, but not as much as the glow-in-the-dark outsole that rests beneath.
Grab a very first look/official at the YEEZY BSKTBL Knit “Energy Glow” here below, and expect to see these hit select retailers this week, on February 18th.
As always, keep your eyes glued to our official Twitter account for further updates.
