Another day, another new addition to the YEEZY family of footwear. Today the brand with the three stripes, adidas, is back. They arrive with a first look at the YEEZY QNTM “Barium.” The sneaker marks the QNTM’s first mass-market release, and they will arrive in a full run of family sizes. The sneakers originally made their debut during NBA All-Star Weekend, offering a blend of high-fashion and hoops in the process. The sneaker gets its name, “Barium,” from an alkaline earth metal that shimmers in either grey or olive green.
The YEEZY QNTM features a sleek upper that boasts three unique and defining pieces. The forefoot and midfoot are seen with a wavy marbled grey exoskeleton which sits on a grey synthetic base. The throat and collar are made of a black neoprene-style material, accented with taped detailing for a modern look. The heel offers a bit of extra structure, doing so with a two-tone grey and silver counter. Finishing things off are midsoles are made up of semi-translucent rubber and contain a full-length BOOST footbed. The outsoles are the only traditional detail, rocking a wavy herringbone traction pattern in the process. Take a closer look at the YEEZY QNTM “Barium” in the images below and look for them to arrive soon.
The sneakers are set to drop via YEEZY Supply, the adidas website, and a global network of YEEZY stockists on 25 June. While you wait, be sure to keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more style and sneaker options coming very soon.
