Are the new Kanye West shoes making a test run with the UCLA Bruins basketball team? This is currently what some speculate, especially after Kanye’s sudden appearance on campus with 2 Chainz. With Kanye’s arrival comes fans’ first look at what may be the new Yeezy basketball shoes. Could Kanye be putting the upcoming Yeezy Boost 350 v2 to the test?
Did Kanye West Tease at the New Yeezy Basketball Shoes?
Quite notably, Kanye was spotted donning some basketball shoes while he and 2 Chainz were on the court. The sneakers feature some similarities to the previously leaked Yeezy Runner. This thus explains the speculations regarding the possibility of Kanye showing off a prototype of some new Yeezy basketball shoes.
With hefty midsoles and some elaborate lacing, Kanye’s shoes on the court seem to bear the makings of a classic basketball shoe. This thus reinforces the notion that these may be a teaser of the Yeezy Boost 350 v2. That, or some other shoe design under the Yeezy line.
Are These the Yeezy Boost 350 v2?
Some may already be aware that the Yeezy Boost 350 v2 will not be available until October 2017. Kanye’s recent sighting with notably new shoes seems to hint at a sneak peek of the awaited sneakers. This is all the more plausible by the fact that this would not be the first time Kanye took to the court in order to test run his new footwear.
Reports reveal that Kanye was previously spotted donning the Adidas Pure Boost back in 2014. Notably, this design would, later on, become an influence to the Yeezy Boost 750. Considering Kanye’s history of taking new shoes on a run, some speculate that such an approach may be the case with the upcoming Yeezy Boost 350 v2 as well.

In other news regarding Yeezy himself, the rapper continues to make headlines due to his reported feud with Jay Z. Allegedly, the feud involves Kanye wanting to cut ties with Jay Z’s subscription-based music streaming service, Tidal. Kanye’s side claims that he has yet to receive monetary reimbursements for his musical efforts that lead to a rise in Tidal’s subscriber count.
Jay Z’s recent album, 4:44, seemingly aggravates the feud even more. As per reports, one track from the album allegedly slams Kanye, with Jay Z referring to Kanye as “insane.” As to whether or not the two rappers will be able to move past this feud remains up in the air.
