Original Story (03/20/20): While all major sports are currently on hold, Kanye West is keeping the spirit of basketball alive with a new upcoming colorway of his adidas Basketball silhouette, the YZY QNTM.
First debuted in Chicago in the “Quantum” colorway, the shoe is similar to the YEEZY 700 V3 in that it is constructed with a primeknit upper and a full BOOST midsole. This latest “Barium” offering draws influence from camouflage print with a dark green upper that’s encased in an even darker green caging. The midsole features the aforementioned forest hues while the suede toe cap resembles the 700 V3 “Alvah.” The heel piece features 3M reflective detailing, giving it a familiar feel to the Quantums.
The adidas YZY QNTM “Barium” will be dropping this summer with a retail price of $250 USD. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for an official release date and photos.
