The powers that be will not let Kanye West and his fashion designs be great, the Trump lover created his first Basketball sneakers and it is likely to be banned by the NBA because its reflective heels would be too much of a distraction for fans. There is a light though, if Kanye decided to come up with an alternative version that doesn’t have the reflective material, then it could very likely be approved.
According to ESPN:
Kanye West is expected to debut his first-ever Yeezy basketball sneaker on the feet of Adidas athletes during the upcoming NBA season. But the league office would ban the current version of the sneaker on court because of its gleaming, reflective-material heel, according to industry sources.
According to Christopher Arena, the NBA’s vice president of identity, outfitting and equipment, companies will typically submit sneakers for the first half of the season by early August, with shoes scheduled to be worn after the All-Star break required for approval by early December. While the league office has yet to receive and formally review the new Yeezy basketball shoe in person, the version shared online by West would not be permitted on court as is, according to a source. Alternative versions of the sneaker that don’t incorporate the reflective material would likely be approved.
