Kanye West leaves Nike to work with Yohji Yamamoto
A collaboration with Adidas
According to Western media reports Kanye West's collaboration with Nike has come to an end. West was reportedly angry at the delay of the release of his latest collaboration with Nike which were unofficially coined "Red Octobers".
November has arrived, and the Octobers are still not available in stores, leaving West a little red in the face. How does the rapper react? He announces a collaboration with Nike's key competitor Adidas on their Y-3 range and has since committed to only wearing Visvim moccasins. Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Referred to as "YEEZI," the new venture is thought to be the outcome of Kanye spending time at the 2014 Mercedes-Benz NYFW show with Y-3 lead designer Yohji Yamamoto.
