Update December 16: The YZY BSKTBL Knit 'Slate Blue' will experience an imminent drop today! Here's where to buy it.

Kanye West
and adidas are putting some late-year points on the board with the YZY BSKTBL Knit 'Slate Blue'. It first released via a Yeezy Supply shock drop at the tail end of November, and now it's set for a more comprehensive release in North America, Europe, Greater China and the APAC region.

What makes this Yeezy hoop-meets-lifestyle shoe interesting is its blend of fresh and familiar pieces. The upper is made of stretchy-yet-sturdy Primeknit, with the highest collar we've seen on any Yeezy that's not a boot to date and an elongated lacing system. There's also a myriad of different textures, ranging from a ridged mid-foot to a flecked forefoot and smooth heel. Down below, however, the BOOST-packed midsole and large heel clip seem to be taken directly from the Yeezy Quantum, save for a slightly more extreme curvature at the forefoot.

There's no word on the YZY BSKTBL Knit's actual hoops performance as of yet (we'd love to see a wear test review), but we do know that its full release is going down on December 16 via the adidas web store, Yeezy Supply, and a handful of retailers with high-level adidas accounts like BSTN. Expect to shell out $300 if you're interested in getting your hands on a pair.
