Kanye West Calls Out Adidas For Selling Fake Yeezys
Well, Kanye West returned to social media to call out Adidas for selling Yeezy knockoffs.
Ye partnered with Adidas and the brand makes his Yeezy slides but says they’re also trying to sell their own. “THIS IS YE driving down the same street Kobe passed on,” he wrote alongside a picture of the slide.
“Maybe I feel that Mamba spirit right now. To Kasper I’m not standing for this blatant copying no more. To all sneaker culture. To every ball player rapper or even if you work at the store. This is for everyone who wants to express themselves but feel they can’t cause they’ll loose their contract or be called crazy.”
Kanye continued: “Bravery is not being afraid. Bravery is overcoming your fear for your truth. This Ye with the blue paint on my face[.] These shoes represent the disrespect that people in power have to the talent.”
“This shoe is a fake Yeezy made by adidas themselves. I’m not talking to DC about this either. Kasper come talk to me Happy Monday,” he added.
Kanye has since deleted the Instagram post. Everyone is now waiting on Adidas’ statement.
“This shoe is a fake Yeezy made by Adidas themselves.”
