By now you’ve heard the news that Kanye West’s new partnership with adidas will take shape as early as September 2014 to coincide with trade shows and New York Fashion Week. But does that include footwear? He didn’t go into specifics during the interview with Chicago’s b96 96.3 FM’s Stylz & Roman, but the next Kanye sneaker may very well hit stores in less than a year. There has been more talk about the name of Kanye’s line with adidas, with “Yeezi” being a popular prediction. In any case, fans of the hip-hop star and self-proclaimed artistic genius won’t have to wait too long to see the collection on their own, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more developments on the footwear side of things and let us know what you think of this news.
“I’ve been under the wings, playing it the right way at Nike and everything but I’ve wanted to create more and not been able to create more for no reason,” he said on the radio. “Now I have a new product partner with adidas. I just got back from Germany yesterday and it was one of the greatest creative days of my life.” – Kanye West, to Stylz & Roman
