Kanye West Calls Out adidas Over Yeezy Day

The Kanye West and adidas connection has grown contentious over Yeezy Day. In an Instagram direct message sent to multiple outlets, Kanye calls out Adidas over the restock holiday. Expressing his displeasure with the holiday, West begins with, “adidas made up the Yeezy Day idea without my approval.”

Not only was the entire idea crafted behind his back, but West also alleges that the brand chose colors without his approval and hired people to work on the brand without his permission, including the general manager of Yeezy. 

West also dives into his blossoming partnership with Balenciaga and the GAP, saying that adidas slowed down production on the shoes he developed for GAP alongside Balenciaga’s creative developer Demna Gvaslia despite his adidas contract allowing for him to create casual footwear.

West continues to say that he discussed an increase in Yeezy Slide supply with the general manager of Yeezy, who told him they didn’t have the capacity. “Meanwhile, adidas was copying my slides and making their own version of the Yeezy slide” says West, referring to the Adilette 22 controversy from earlier this year.   

Kanye filed for a trademark for YZYSPLY recently, potentially signaling a potential attempt to move away from the Three Stripes.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
