Kanye West spent nine years, on and off, selling Yeezy shoes with Adidas. However, this lucrative partnership ended last year as Adidas decided to join the other brands in the boycott of West owing to his actions. The famous sportswear brand severed ties with one of its biggest designers amid the tumultuous time. Now, over one year after that high-profile split, Ye has made a splashing return to the fashion world, leaving his fans excited.

Ye Streams recently shared a glimpse of YZY Sock Shoe PODS on X, formerly Twitter. The clip featured foldable footwear of black color, which replaces normal shoes people wear in daily life. According to them, this product will soon be available for sale at the official website of Kanye West’s footwear brand Yeezy. It seems the Grammy winner now wishes to venture into fashion without the support of another brand after what happened last year.

The ‘Donda’ singer has put on display a no-shoe show in public in the past months and instead went for socks. He was spotted rocking socks when he entered the VIP entrance at E11EVEN Nightclub in Miami over the weekend. It was unclear what was the reason behind this move of the music and fashion mogul, but this latest drop has certainly cleared the air that he was promoting his upcoming masterpiece.

Fans impressed with the new creation of Kanye West 

After taking a peek at these sock-style shoes, fans could not help but react to the post. They praised the creativity of the former billionaire and gushed over the unique design of the product. Some wondered if there were more colors available, while others could not wait for the launch to buy one pair and asked for the price.

It seems the fever for Yeezy designs has not died down while West maintained silence about his endeavors in the fashion industry. Now this product has given them renewed hope that he will make more shoes.

While Kanye West has been gearing up to launch his designs, Adidas has been making new plans to sell off the remaining Yeezy stock. The company has managed to sell a major part of the shoes, but last month they expressed their wish to write off the remaining $320 million worth of Yeezy. However, they are still deciphering a way to rise from the sea of losses owing to their fallout with Ye.
