Now, it appears that the first iteration is landing sooner than we think. The adidas UK website has currently loaded up product pages for the YEEZY 350 BOOST V2 “Zebra” and the YEEZY 500 “Utility Black” colorway on its site — leading fans to believe that an official restock is coming soon.
The decision to continue selling its archive YEEZY product comes about as a result of concerns surrounding sustainability and waste — with former fans resorting to burning their product or throwing it away, due to Kanye West’s controversial behaviour. Now, adidas hopes that it’ll be able to shift its old stock without wastage, and has plans for those who don’t wish to directly support West in purchasing YEEZY, too. A partial amount of the proceeds from the sales will go towards international organizations that were affected by Ye’s anti-Semitic statements, though the rapper will still be receiving a 15% commission, as per his contract.
Alongside adidas UK, the brand’s India website has also added an extensive lineup of new and returning YEEZY’s to its roster, including the YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 and YEEZY FOAM RNNR.
The first set of releases is slated for June 1 via adidas. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.
In other Kanye West news, the rapper has reportedly filed a trademark for YEEZY sock shoes.
