Is a line from the Kanye and Kendrick Lamar collaboration hinting that West is leaving the Adidas brand for Vans once his contract runs out? Possibly.
In No More Parties In LA, West drops the line that “some days I’m in my Yeezys, some days I’m in my Vans.” This, along with a tweet in which Kanye is showing off a pair of Vans Half Cabs.
Sneaker Addict originally reported the story from an unnamed but reliable source, stating: “This may sound incredible, though, let us tell you about the facts that lead us to ask ourselves this question. There are a little over a week, a reliable source close to our team told us that negotiations were ongoing between Kanye West and Californian brand Vans. According to our source, Kanye West would end his contract with adidas late 2016 to start a new contract with Vans in 2017.”
West could just be upping his price tag with negotiations with Adidas on the horizon. The Yeezys are a certified money-printer and he’d be dumb not to shop around his ideas to the highest bidder.
