Kanye’s Air Yeezy collab with Nike is to this day one of Yeezy’s most desirable sneaker collections, but it looked as though Kanye severed ties with Nike after the release, with the partnership abruptly ending over creative differences.
Yeezy moved on to collab with rival Adidas and he even slated Nike on his track ‘Facts’ rapping “Nike out here bad, they can’t give shit away”. But it looks like that all might be in the past.
In a new interview with GQ, Kanye said if Nike wanted to rerelease the collab he’d be down. When asked if he’d be cool with Nike retro-ing the Air Yeezy line he said “man, anything that the kids want and the people want. People should be able to have what they want.”
At this point we don’t know if Nike would ever want to rerelease the line given their beef with Kanye, but for now at least it looks like Yeezy is over the conflict and ready to move on.
Would you want to see the Air Yeezy collabs on shelves once again?
