I find it funny that we’ve known about the Yeezy basketball shoe for a while....
Then magically nike teams up with FOG for a “basketball” shoe.
Light Royal and Black
Do you realize how long ago they were in production, much less designed?
Them FOGs are flames
S T A ? ? ?
Yeah, I don’t think people realize how long the design process from initial thought to final product is for sneakers.
@ the FOG joints being a reaction to the yeezy b-ball shoe, as if Nike hasn’t dominated the basketball market since forever.
Lol @ you dudes.
Clearly nike has dominated the basketball scene.
But don’t get it twisted, Kanye designed his bball shoe before nike did fogs.
This will be the first designer “signature” basketball shoe, as Kanye’s would also be in the same boat.
You nike stans are funny
We knew that a yeezy b-ball sneaker was in the works for about 2 years now
To be fair, Lorenzo started designing his pair in 2016...the same year the 750 came out. They sure do look a lot a like.
750 early 2015*
More like the other way around.
What exactly are you trying to give Kanye credit for? Creating a basketball sneaker?
i was a big hater of this shoe for a really long time. and then the owner of the company i work for, his grandson came to last years holiday christmas party in them and i had to get them. i may not double since i dont wear them often enough but they look a lot better in person than pics do them justice, kinda like the zebras. take advantage of the restock!
It is what it is....
You def right, it was 2015. But further illustrating my point.
I’m all for giving credit where it’s due. And Ye does deserve credit for making considerable waves in footwear between his time at Nike and adidas. But this notion that Nike felt they had to compete with the yeezy basketball line is asinine, at best.
They’ve been doing “designer” collabos for awhile now, so this is likely more of a natural progression rather than a reaction to whatever Kanye is doing. Just so happens to be a basketball model.
Sometimes Kanye stans want him to win/be right so bad they overlook the logical explanation of things.
Yeah I believe Jerry said it took 3 years to design in an interview so that timing is about right
not to mention that historically, nike's answer to any and all competition (if youd call it that) is almost always double down on more of the same. Like you mentioned, this is a natural progression.
No, it's just a cutout of the 3M vinyl and very poor cutout at that. Just buy the 3M vinyl on Amazon and trace it yourself.
One of these should get you at least 10 pairs:
Not to mention Y3 has been putting out basketball sneakers.
the top view of these reminds me of the air flare
sns needs to have a raffle for the yellows, hit on every yeezy since the mauves with them
except Jerry has been working on that shoe with Nike for TWO YEARS.
Does that say "MMA" on the bball shoe
chicken or egg with this whole bball debate.
i need bofa
