Kanye West Signs with adidas

kanye west adidas Kanye West Signs with adidas

It’s official: Kanye West is partnering up with adidas for a range of sneakers and apparel. It’s unclear at the time of writing just how deep the partnership will run, but keep in mind one of Kanye’s main goals in making this move was to be able to consistently put out product. The info comes from a recent interview with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, in which Kanye expressed displeasure at not receiving any royalties from the Air Yeezy. Apparently the new adidas partnership involves royalties paid for Kanye, which was a big part of the allure.

Of course this move calls into question the fate of the “Red October” Yeezy 2-it would be sort of an awkward move for Nike to put the shoe out now that West is an official partner of adidas, especially given his slightly disparaging remarks towards Nike CEO Mark Parker and the Nike machine at large. Keep in mind that this team up will not fall under the adidas Y-3 umbrella as was rumored and falsely reported by some in the frenzy of the past week (Although there does seem to be merit to the adidas YEEZi name). Let us know in the comments what you’re predicting for the Kanye West x adidas project and stay tuned with Sneaker News for updates as the product starts to show and adidas decides to inform the public of the partnership and the details.

What Do You Think?: Kanye West Leaving Nike

kanye west leaves nike What Do You Think?: Kanye West Leaving Nike

An alluring discussion surrounding hip-hop and style icon Kanye West and the state of his partnership with athletic outfitter Nike has risen rather abruptly. Things between Yeezy and the Swoosh seemed to be rather copacetic, but it turns out that the relationship, based on what’s been going on recently with the Yeezus tour and West’s public appearances and radio interviews, is much rockier than initially perceived. Kanye revealed in an interview with Philadelphia’s WIRED 96.5 radio station that he signed a deal with a major company that would allow him a much broader line of footwear that would be more accessible, and a complete apparel line to boot. Basically, the deal gives Kanye much more control than what Nike ever offered him, and sadly to say, we may be near the end of the Nike Air Yeezy. But is that as unfortunate as it sounds?

The month of October has come and gone, and unfortunately things didn’t get anywhere near as “Red” as many were hoping. Since the “Red October” nickname first surfaced, the safe assumption seemed to be that the mysterious and long-awaited red Air Yeezy 2s would finally see a release or at least make some sort of appearance during the month of October. But as we’ve learned with all things Yeezy, there are no safe assumptions and we all remain stuck in a perpetual wait-and-see state until official information is revealed by Nike or Kanye West – an occurrence that has proven to be few and far between to say the least.

The feet of Kanye West himself have always been, understandably so, the first place to look to find out what’s coming next from the line. The latest example of that is the red Nike Air Yeezy 2. The sneaker had been floating around in sample form for a while, but it wasn’t until they showed up on the feet of the Louis Vuitton Don himself during that Saturday Night Live performance that the anticipation hit a fever pitch. It appears that, going forward, the shoes will sort of be his on-stage go to as far as footwear goes, and this past weekend he brought them out again, hitting the main stage at the Governors Ball festival in NYC on Sunday night.
