Kanye West Calls Out adidas for Copying His YEEZY Slides

For Ye, imitation isn’t the sincerest form of flattery.

adidasAdilette 22 slide, which is set to drop this month, has caused much hype within the sneaker community. However, one person isn’t quite on board with the upcoming release — Kanye West.

The YEEZY founder took to Instagram to call out the Three Stripes brand’s CEO Kasper Rørsted. “To Kasper I’m not standing for this blatant copying no more,” he wrote. “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.”

While the Adilette 22 resembles the YEEZY Slide, adidas’ upcoming Foam Runner sneaker is also reminiscent of the YEEZY Foam Runner. “These shoes represent the disrespect that people in power have to the talent,” Ye concluded. “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.”

Rørsted has not yet responded to Ye’s post as of writing. Whether they resolve their differences or not, the adidas Adilette 22 is still scheduled to launch on June 23.
