He revealed in an Instagram post to Complex that Adidas conceived the idea of ​​Yeezy Day, first launched in 2019, without his approval.

“Adidas came up with the Yeezy Day idea without my approval and then started bringing back older styles without my approval,” West began.

He added that the company “picked colors and named them without my approval and hired people to work for me without my approval stole my colorways without my approval stole my styles and material approaches without my approval took talent on the production side and they sprinkled Adidas Originals through it without my permission.’

“Even though they were doing a Balenciaga collaboration, they completely delayed production of the shoes that I and Demma were developing for the Gap by trying to bully Gap, even though my contract says I can do casual shoes, which I did when I fashion shows,’ West added.

West went on to say that he “ordered” Adidas to make more of his Yeezy slides, but the general manager “lied to my face and said they didn’t have the capacity,” although instead they “copied my slides and made their own version.” from the Yeezy Slides.

West had called on Adidas for this in June, when the company released their Adidas Adilette, which the rapper called “fake Yeezys.”

He concluded: ‘Yeezy accounts for 68% of Adidas’ online sales. God step in.’

West’s current deal with Adidas – which he signed in 2016 – is said to run until 2026, although it seems West is far from happy with how the shoemaker is treating him.

In June, he taunted Adidas CEO Kasper Rorstad for releasing the Adilette slides for $55 at retail, with a statement comparing himself to Kobe Bryant.

“THIS IS YOU driving down the same street that Kobe arrived at. Maybe I’m feeling that Mamba spirit now,” West began, possibly hinting that his deal with Adidas is coming to an end.

NBA legend Kobe Bryant signed a six-year deal with Adidas before being sent straight to high school in 1996, but Bryant bought himself out of his Adidas contract in 2002.

After waiting a full year as part of his opt-out clause, he signed a new deal with Nike in 2003, where he remained for the rest of his career.

“Courage is not being afraid. Courage is overcoming your fear of your truth. This Ye with the blue paint on my face,” he added.
