Kanye West took to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Wednesday morning to ease the minds of fretting fans who might have worried that they wouldn’t be able to get their hands on a pair of Yeezy sneakers from West’s Adidas collaboration, which will be released this Saturday.
Though there are currently only 9,000 pairs of the Yeezy 750 Boost (priced at $350), which West rocked during his Grammy performance, the rapper-slash-fashion mogul assured listeners that the coveted sneakers will eventually be available to all. During his interview with Seacrest, West also encouraged patience and safety:
“I’ve heard about people getting hurt for sneaker culture in the past. I just want everyone to be safe and be patient. Just be patient. I know you can run up on this kid and take his Yeezys, but just be patient because we’ll make more Yeezys. Eventually everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys. Adidas has promised me that because there’s so many kids that have wanted them that couldn’t get them, and I talked to the heads at Adidas and they said we can make them.”
West also spoke about his NYFW debut, where he plans to show his collection not once, but 10 times over the next two days. And don’t worry, even if you’re not in the Brooklyn area, you can still check out the show from one of 40 locations worldwide where the collection will be live-streamed.
Said West, “If you’re in Atlanta, and you’re a fresh kid, and you wore the Margielas ’cause you saw me up there on the “Yeezus” tour with them and your girl is fresh and she got some Alaia shoes off of eBay because she saw Kim wear them at fashion week, and you’re doing your thing and everything and you find out ‘Ye’s got this fashion show that you go to a theatre to see at 4 o’clock, you’re going to go see that.”
Oh, Kanye, always looking out for the fresh girls and boys.
