Kanye West and adidas announced a new partnership back in June that will include Yeezy products that will be available at upcoming Yeezy retail stores.
In a recent interview with Vogue, West gave up some new details as far as where he expects the first Yeezy store to open up and how many stores he plans to open up.
“I believe the first one will be in California, since that’s where I stay now,” he said. “I can go by there most often, check in, get the vibe. But I want to do 200 stores in the next year. That’s just me saying what I want. I’m not saying what can definitely happen but you might as well just state out loud what you want. That’ll put you one step closer to getting it.”
So now that there will be adidas Yeezy stores does that mean that his sneakers and clothing will be widely available and affordable for everyone looking to buy a pair of sneakers or a t-shirt? Let’s hope so. Here’s what Kanye had to say regarding that criticism.
“I’m very focused on trying to make things far more affordable, far more beautiful, and for far more people.”
Only time will tell if everybody who wants a pair of Yeezy will be able to get a pair of Yeezys without having to give up your first born. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for more.
