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.

While the monochromatic sneakers won't violate the league's footwear color restrictions, the issue is the reflective "3M" heel panel, which the NBA would find potentially distracting for both in-arena spectators and television viewers.

I'm sure the MAGAers will make this decision about Trump and not the design flaw, though.

The irony that it's those people that make everything about Trump :)

This is a no brainer. They also don't let you wear those LA Lights shoes either.

Pretty much.

I've said this before, but I'll say it again: I wish the league would limit players' sneaker choices to those containing their respective team's colors. I think it was Rozier who was wearing some hideous pink-and-yellow sneakers the other night.

wish I could find the meme I saw while ago with Kanye whining no one wants to financially back his designing -- "I'm a product person".   No idea if he's made other 'products' but this one's pretty ugly.

Completely agree that the players should be wearing shoes that are the team's colors --> footwear is a crucial part of the uniform in the NBA.  I get players have sneaker deals and need to show off the shoes to generate interest in the product but I really think the whole team should be wearing the same uniform down to the sneakers.

Carmelo Anthony, when in NY, had his sneaker banned for the reason: the 3M reflective material built into the shoe. Melo had to do an entire exterior redesign.

If Kanye wants NBA players to wear his shoes, he has to get rid of the reflective material. Really there is nothing else to see here.

Not really. 

I was speaking to current events here.  Kanye goes on SNL Saturday night, there's the whole MAGA hat/ending credits thing there, the 13th amendment thing, etc.

Fast forward 3 days and this happens. 

It's speaks to the current climate & how predictable it's gotten.   Take a look around social media to see that.

That's what I was getting at.  Pretty simple.

The NBA really needed to ban that shoe?  What self-respecting player would actually wear that ugly piece of garbage on their feet?
