Is Kanye West Ditching Nike for Another Brand? Does This Mean No More Red Octobers!

Send em back to Nike!

Has the marriage between Kanye West and Nike finally come to an end? Does this signify an end to the popular Nike Air Yeezy sneaker line? Rumors are swirling stating the realationship between the two parties has ended.

During a recent concert in Philadelphia, Kanye went on a serious rant against Nike and other “millionaires”. It should also be noted; Kanye has not worn the Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” edition for his past three shows. Here’s some video footage from the concert.

Also during his time in Philadelphia, a local radio station, Wired 96.5, interviewed Kanye. During the interview, Mr. West hinted at the fact he “signed a deal with a major company” and has something in the works. Check out the interview; around the 1:30 mark.

Rumors on Niketalk speculate Kanye is ditching the Swoosh for the Three stripes. After watching the interview, its apparent Kanye wants to focus on creating a larger, more available line of sneakers and clothing for consumers. It makes sense he would leave Nike and go on to another brand like Adidas. Maybe this is why we have yet to see the Nike Air Yeezy II Red Octobers release publically. Remember, many thought they would drop in June and then again in October. Decemeber is right around the corner and still no word on the “Red Octobers”. I think it may be safe to say they’re never dropping! For Kanye fans, the consolation prize may be a pair of Adidas Yeezy sneakers instead.

It was just over a year ago when Nike changed mainstream sneaker culture forever by releasing Kanye West’s second signature shoe, The Nike Air Yeezy 2. The sneaker sold out in minutes with the demand much higher than production. Reseller’s made a killing by flipping Mr. West’s sneakers for well over $2,000 on average.

In honor of his new album Yeezus, Nike and Kanye are back at it again with a third all-red colorway of the Air Yeezy 2.

Check out these photos of Kanye rocking the all red colorway of his highly coveteted sneaker at New York’s Governor’s Ball. Rumors are swirling about a release date; we speculate it could happen this October. Stick around for details as the become known to the public.
