The adidas YZY BSKTBL KNIT Charges Up with New 'Energy Glow' Colourway
Release: 18 February 2022

Is it a high-performance basketball shoe? A hoops-inspired lifestyle favourite? A little bit of both, perhaps? No matter what you label Kanye West and adidas' YZY BSKTBL KNIT, it's a silhouette worthy of discussion. Lately, the discussion around it has centred on its new batch of colourways: a 'Slate Azure' pair was revealed earlier this week, and a charged-up 'Energy Glow' has just been announced for release as well.

First revealed by the Yeezy sleuths over at Yeezy Mafia, the adidas YZY BSKTBL KNIT 'Energy Glow' is electrified with a bright volt yellow/green upper. This high-voltage colour is accented by much more muted grey threads and a high-cut black sock collar that hides additional ankle support in its Primeknit folds. There's a signature super-sized grey heel piece, while the BOOST-stuffed midsole is tinted an icy volt green to round off the look. It's not hard to imagine the top high school prospects at West's Donda Academy (a recently-formed prep school) hooping in these bad boys!

If you're looking to get a pair for yourself, you'll be able to do so in short order. According to Yeezy Mafia, the adidas YZY BSKTBL KNIT 'Energy Glow' will release via Yeezy Supply and adidas this week – on February 18, to be specific. Its MSRP is set at a standard $300.
