Kanye West‘s flair for the dramatic is on full display ahead of NBA All-Star Weekend, as his highly anticipated YEEZY QNTM is being given away to hordes of his loyal acolytes in Chicago. A convoy of military-style trucks with enormous tires have been circling the Chicago streets before stopping at intermittent times to bless the adoring masses with the latest and greatest from adidas YEEZY, free of charge.

The YEEZY QNTM is a slightly-altered version of the performance-geared YZY BSKTBL. With a high-cut upper, snaking reflective detailing and a BOOST-filled midsole, it’s a step in a new direction for West and adidas‘s line alongside other new silhouettes like the BOOST 700 MNVN and BOOST 380. Its high desirability is made clear by the dedication of the rapper/designer’s Windy City fans, who’ve faithfully followed the trucks down the street in temperatures that creep close to single digits.
For those who can’t or won’t brave the cold, the YEEZY QNTM is also set to release exclusively in Chicago on All-Star Sunday, February 16, at retail locations like the adidas Chicago flagship, Tony’s Sports and Notre. The retail price is reportedly set at $250 USD
