With all the excitement and anticipation surrounding the upcoming Yeezy’s, the NBA has potentially already made up its mind not to approve them. According to ESPN’s Nick DePaula, the NBA will ban the current version of Kanye’s basketball sneaker on the court due to its gleaming, reflective-material heel because “the NBA would find it potentially distracting for both in-arena spectators and television viewers”. The all-black version of Kanye West’s Adidas Yeezy basketball sneaker may reportedly get a pass because it doesn’t have the reflective-material. Carmelo Anthony’s Jordan M10 sneaker with a metallic chrome heel which he as not allowed to wear and had to wear a pair with a matte finish, is cited as the example for the potential refusal by the league, over Ye’s Yeezy with the reflective material.

Ye is really looking forward to seeing his new shoe on the NBA court. We’ll keep you posted on this story as it develops. Ye’s Yeezy basketball sneaker are reportedly scheduled to drop in Spring of 2019.
