Kanye West is not a happy man when it comes to Adidas right now. Of course, Adidas is the company that makes Kanye’s Yeezy show products but Ye is upset over the fact that he feels the company is selling fake Yeezy slides. Kanye even called out Adidas CEO Kasper Rørsted over the new release, saying:
“To Kasper I’m not standing for this blatant copying no more,” West wrote. “To all sneaker culture…This is for everyone who wants to express themselves but feel they can’t cause they’ll lose their contract or be called crazy…These shoes represent the disrespect that people in power have to the talent.”
In fairness to Kanye, the slides do look very similar.
