A first look at the long-awaited basketball sneaker.

Infamous sneaker leaker YEEZY MAFIA has shared an image of the rumoured YZY BSKTBL ‘QUANTUM’, and QUANTUM Lifestyle with a caption suggesting its debut at NBA All-Star Weekend. For those of us here for the Yeezy and less so for the basketball, All-Star weekend is going down in Chicago this week, 14-16 February. We’re not saying they’re always on point, but YEEZY MAFIA does have a reputation for getting things right – often enough that they’ve earned millions of followers, started their own brand/ global movement and even had twitter wars with Kim Kardashian.

The high-top sneaker is expected to land in a ‘Zebra’ colourway and from the images provided, features reflective 3m detailing. Whether or not that 3m will feature exclusively on the lifestyle model or if YEEZY/ adi are confident they can finesse clearance from the NBA for the performance shoe, remains to be seen. YEEZY MAFIA claim that both pairs will retail for $250 USD.

Nick Young, AKA Swaggy P, famously donned a pair of YEEZY 500s on court about two years ago and it seems the rest of the NBA/ world could be about to catch up with an offical YZY basketball performance model this weekend. Worth the wait? Ask us again on Monday.
