Kanye giving away QNTM in Chicago; shoe due in retailers Feb. 16

Kanye West is launching his new Yeezy Quantum shoe all over the city of Chicago today — with surprise “giveaway” sites this afternoon.

Kanye is sending some Valentine’s Day love to Chicago in a big way today.

The superstar/entrepreneur’s team is handing out free pairs of his much-anticipated Yeezy QNTM (Quantum) at various locations today ahead of the shoe’s release on Feb. 16 at Chicago retailers.

Locations for the giveaways were hush-hush for most of the day, but as the afternoon evolved, tanklike sherps showed up in Wicker Park and near the United Center dispensing the Yeezy footwear, which reportedly will retail for around $250 per pair.
