Kanye West is in the sneaker headlines more than ever thanks to his departure from Nike and his outspoken nature regarding his work with adidas. The latest snippet from a radio interview reveals directly from West that the newly pinned designer has already designed 20 shoes with adidas. That’s not guaranteeing that 20 adidas x Kanye shoes will release once we hit September 2014, but the wheels are definitely moving much faster at the adidas HQ than we had expected. We’ll keep you updated on the latest happenings in this groundbreaking partnership so stay tuned for more updates.
And I bet all the shoes will be based off Nikes designs. Just like the yeezy 2s were a straight rip off from the overall shape to the swoosh of the air tech challenge hybrid. You put a strap on it and "snake leather" on it and a glow in the dark air tech challenge sole and you have the air yeezy 2. So basically people are paying 3000 for a hybrid of an air tech challenge hybrid.
I feel like this dude is just talking out of his ass again trying to build hype. I'm so sick and tired of hearing about this assclown on tv and radio stations always talking about "oh kanye went on a new rant oh kanye had this to say, man shut the fuck up already no one gives a flying fuck about what you have to say. We don't need your opinion on everything and comparing them to events and people in history that ACTUALLY MATTERED. He's acting like his obssesion with fashion is the worlds problem.I can't believe people actually ride his dick so hard like his music was actually good. I got news for you his music isn't that very good, and guess what you have a mind of your own to decide what's good. There's plenty of other undergroung artists that are better than this fuckboy.
Kanye said before that he had notebooks filled with shoes designed as a kid that were inspired by the Jordan 1s, he always wanted to design shoes. His main talent was music and thats what mad him big and without being a world wide icon he would NOT be able do design shit for anybody. He is making his dreams come true and everyone thats saying to stick to one thing, you aint shit because not everyone has one dream, they have more, realize that
Sneakerheads are some of the dumbest people I've ever met. The only reason the Yeezy was hyped is because 1) it was nike 2) it was by Kanye and 3) it was very "limited". Nike could throw a swoosh on a plastic bag filled with shit and sneakerheads/hypebeasts will buy it for hundreds of dollars. They'll kill people for them. But if he moves to Adidas everyone starts hating???? That's bullshit. Just a bunch of sheep. I hate the both pairs of Yeezys. Hell I hate the 11s. But if this fool drops some dope shit, I'll buy it. I don' care what the brand is.
I agree. And like you I've never understood the infatuation with the jordan 11. The shoe is plain as fuck and these fools scrap over it.
@lildwell (based on that last sentence) -- Kanye, is that you?!
@JackSparrow726 yall sound like either teenagers or knicks fans. the xi's and all the yeezys was FIRE so shut the fuck up forever. seriously.
@TheNatural Here we go again. Another motherfucker with balls behind that keyboard but probably just a Lil Bitch on the streets.
You're entire arguement is that if I don't like what you like I'm either Kanye or I'm just wrong? Thanks for proving my point about sneakerheads being unintelligent sheep.
Da 11s are so popular fa wat they represent. His comeback. Havin da best record in da regular season at 72-10. Dominating da game at a high level... And its 1 of MJs favorite models himself. Most of time u see him in somethin casual he has his 11s on.
@lildwell imagine how stupid i would seem if i clicked on an article about paul mccartney and then typed a comment that said "i hate every beatles album, but if the new paul mcartney album is good i'll buy it" its hard to explain but u sound ridiculous disrespecting the yeezys & xi's
@TheNatural@lildwell You would sound like an open minded person that thought for yourself and didn't praise things just because a name was attached to it. Jordan is the greatest player of all time. But those shoes suck to me. Note if you like them, wear them. But don't wear them only because Jordan did. That's unoriginal Bullshit. I only like the 1s and 5s. Stop being a hypebeast/sneakerhead
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite All of that is fine and dandy but if he wore a pair of pink poodle shoes while doing that would you still be fucking with it? It's nice that he likes the shoe and what he did was amazing but I think the shoe is a misshaped moon boot.
@obiz9I can compare him to them. One is a glorified salesman and the other made an empire off of the back of a cartoon mouse.......
@FuckinTheWorld_ dont let the media fool you. hes still great. he jus needs to hire a PR assistant or sum shit
His music it wack lol wtf. You must be 12 year old lol. U can't be older than 12 talking like this lol
His new shit is wack. The old stuff was nice but he turned to shit and started acting like he was a god.
I cant wait 2 see. They have potential to be right, but people blowin em off cuz they adidas, haven't even seen em yet, had he still been wit nike or if they get a lot of hype the same people that was clowin will be the same folks talkin bout how they gon cop. #monkeyCmonkeyDo
You ain't never lied! Adidas, making a bad move. It's a reason Nike didn't give this clown kanye freedom adidas better wake up and smell the coffee!
