Have Kanye West and Adidas Decided to Sell the Unsold Yeezys?

If we look at the life graph of Kanye West, it is no less than a rollercoaster. At one point, Ye was on top of the world. He had sold a million records, created a name for himself in the fashion industry, and collaborated with some of the biggest brands in the world, including GAP and Adidas.

As per The Sole Supplier, Ye will be entering into an agreement with Adidas to sell the remaining unsold Yeezy stock. Interestingly, the 350 “Pirate Black” is rumoured to be one of the first products that will be sold.
