Kayne seems to be at loggerheads with the sports business giant once again as he claims on the internet that his product has been copied.
He went ahead and wrote a long post on Instagram about how his Yeezy slides have been copied by Adidas in the new Adilette 22 sandals they released, the rapper went as far as to call those fake Yeezys and expressed his wish to meet the Adidas CEO about this.
The Actual Comparison Between The Two
Kanye launched his Yeezys in 2015 in a collaboration with Adidas, now he seems to have a problem with the company since they released what he thinks is a poor copy of his product the previous month.
When taking into notice the appearance, they can be called similar, but the adidas ones are a bit slimmer and lighter than the Kanye ones, Yeezys are also costly as compared to Adidas ones.

Fans Appear Divided Over The Claim
