Kanye & Nike Were Reportedly Working On The ‘Air YEEZY 3’

It is no big secret that Kanye West has changed the world of sneakers; especially for adidas. Today though an interesting bit of news had hit the interwebs as the word is that Kanye & Nike were hard at work on the Yeezy 3 before things changed.

In a recent article on Complex, Esaie Witherspoon who was the Global Product Line Manager for one of Nike’s athletic departments stated “I heard word that the next shoe was already started. When the rants started, I was like, ‘It’s a wrap… put a fork in it.” Things went sour quickly apparently as Kanye and Nike broke their partnership and the rest is history. While this is certainly interesting news, it would be even more intriguing to see those Yeezy 3 sketches. Stay tuned for more on this coming soon and give us your thoughts below.
