Since rejoining Instagram last week, Kanye West has lined his feed with a barrage of images, covering everything from family pics, his “I Love It” video alongside Lil Pump, as well as several lookbook teasers, amongst others. Earlier today, the multifaceted artist was snapped sporting a new pair of kicks, which according to the caption, looks to be the first official YEEZY basketball shoe.

Although details remain non existent for the time being, the high-top silhouette appears to take on a jagged print graphic sitting behind wavy stripe accents with reflective 3M elements found on the heel and tongue. Other features include a semi-translucent midsole and a sturdy collar/ankle support. Be sure to check back for more details as they become available.

In other sneaker news, the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Beast” returns this month.
