Kanye West’s foray into fashion is scheduled to hit NBA basketball courts this season.
Or at least it was.
The debut of West’s Yeezy sneakers may be on halt for a redesign, ESPN reports. A reflective heel on the Adidas collaboration would be deemed too distracting and warrant a ban from the league, an NBA source told ESPN’s Nick DePaula.

Shoes have to be submitted to the NBA for approval, a process that hasn’t happened yet, according to the report. The source said that a redesign eliminating the reflective material would likely lead to a stamp of approval from the league.
West teased the shoe on Instagram last week. The potential for problems here is obvious.
A price for the shoes has not been set.
