The YEEZY Quantum Basketball to See Wider Release
Update 02.14.20 // According to @yeezyseason2, the YEEZY Quantum Basketball will be seeing a wider release. The YEEZY-leaker has the pair pegged for a May 15th release, with a retail price point of $250. Further details will be arriving over the coming weeks, so make sure that you’re following us on Twitter for any and all updates. Until then, you can take a peep at what’s coming up for Kanye and co this year, with our full rundown of YEEZY Releases for 2020 right here.
Update 02.14.20 // Ye’s new Quantum model will release in two separate editions; the YZY BSKTBL “QUANTUM”, a performance silhouette, and the YZY QNTM “QUANTUM”, which the silhouette’s lifestyle option. With both pairs scheduled to release this weekend during Chicago’s All-Star Weekend festivities, official looks at both pairs have now emerged (pictured further below).
Naturally, there was some confusion as to what the differences were between the Lifestyle and Hoops editions were, but the official images have shed some light on to what these are. The hoops-specific sneaker appears to add hardshell cages along the profile for stability, as does extra layering around the ankle. Overall, it appears more rigid and secure, as it should be for high-performance use.
While it is still unclear just exactly how and where these will release is not yet confirmed, but there are whispers of a 1000 pair release in the Windy City over the weekend, with the remaining 4000 pairs tipped to arrive online. With ambiguity still abundant, make sure that you’re following us on Twitter for all updates as we approach this weekend.
OG Post // Kanye’s got a knack for rumors. Building things up — then nothing. For ages. FromYhandi to the elusive YEEZY 451 and even his fashion label Pastelle, we’ve been waiting on Ye for over a decade to deliver. And then there’s the YEEZY Basketball sneaker, the YEEZY Quantum, which has seemingly taken an eternity to see its debut drop. But according to reports, it will be here as early as next month.
Let’s be real, I didn’t think this was going to happen either, but when we start to see more and more of the silhouette flooding social media arriving from someone other than the man himself, it’s a good indication that it’s actually on the way. After a myriad of prototypes, one of which got banned by the NBA, we’re only now just starting to see sneaker leakers drop some info on its release. The latest rumor to land comes by way of @ovrnundr.io, who claim that pairs are reportedly releasing on February 14th and will be limited to just 5000 pairs.
