Quavo Just Wore Unreleased YEEZYs, But We Were Too Busy Looking At His Jacket
Courtside at an NBA game is a battleground for the famous where the competition for the best outfit is fierce. Recently, the spectator seating at basketball matches has seen Drake perfect cozy dressing along with Travis Scott in $100,000 2006 Iron Maiden Nike Dunks, and Quavo‘s recent courtside attire is similarly eye-catching (and expensive).
Making his fifth appearance as an NBA All-Star player, the Migos member took a seat at the side of the court rocking an unreleased YEEZY sneaker grail and further cementing the Entire Studios puffer as one of the most-hyped jackets of the moment.
First teased in 2020, YEEZY fans have been waiting patiently for the 1020v Boot to drop to no avail. Thanks to Quavo, there is at least now another look at how the sneakers look on-foot to get the sneaker community excited about its possible release.
Although there have been no official images or information around the bulky orange sneaker boot, we can see that the distinct model features a zip that runs across the upper of the shoe where laces would conventionally be placed, a rubber mudguard that sits in between the upper and the midsole, and a grippy lugged sole courtesy of a long time adidas partner Continental.
The shoe, which has been on the radar of YEEZY enthusiasts for some time, gained much of its hype comes from the DONDA listening parties that had the internet in a frenzy during the summer of last year. The first of the three listening parties saw the rapper present the YEEZY GAP Round Jacket in red for the first time, worn alongside red leather jeans and a pair of the YEEZY 1020v boots in the same orange colorway.
Quavo didn’t follow in Ye’s steps by wearing a tonal red look, however, his courtside outfit was reminiscent of that famous ‘fit in that it included a puffy, boxy-fitting jacket.
The musician was wearing an Entire Studios puffer jacket in a light yellow “blonde” colorway. Its similar shape to the YEEZY GAP round jacket is no coincidence, as the duo behind the label Dylan Richards and Sebastian Hunt were once part of the creative team behind YEEZY.
Despite the label only having been up-and-running for a little over a year, the jacket has quickly become its signature item. Co-signs by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Bad Bunny, Kendall Jenner, and Bloody Osiris has only increased its hype, making us consider it the jacket of the moment.
In a recent interview, co-founder Richards told Highsnobiety that “we want everything to be accessible to anyone who wants to buy it. We don’t need to sell our jackets for $2,000 when we make a profit; we’ll sell more when it’s a more affordable and accessible brand to buy.” This means that, unlike his grail-worthy sneakers that have hit resale platforms for upwards of $6,000, you can cop Quavo’s jacket for $540.
Including a pair of rare jeans and a t-shirt from NIGO’s collaborative Louis Vuitton collection, check out a breakdown of the full outfit below.
Matching his grail sneakers with the puffer jacket that has got us all talking at the moment, Quavo kept to the theme of wearing grails by opting for a pair of jeans from the Japanese label Kapital. Hailing from Kojima, Okayama, which is regarded as the “Denim Capital” of Japan, the label’s jeans have become collector’s items amongst fashion enthusiasts. The pair that Quavo opted for features a straight fit with white snowflake embroidery all over.
