Kanye West instantly dropped from the billionaire league when Adidas turned away from him. It can be said that this breakup came out to be the biggest loss of Ye’s career. Considering the fashion and music mogul used to incur the majority of earnings through his partnership with the sports brand. Likewise, for Adidas also things became more difficult as people threw their Yeezy shoes and denied to purchase any in the future. Now, when the company is in jeopardy of what to do with these things worth millions, fans have presented some peculiar ideas.

This is actually a billion-dollar question: What will Adidas do with its unsold Yeezys costing them 1.3 billion? The international brand is facing huge danger after cutting ties with Kanye West. The products that once used to bring the company million are now just a liability.
