the Yeezy, the breadwinner of Adidas by a large margin, is probably the most sought-after shoe in the entire sneaker market. The absurd variance between silhouettes, shades, and structure in each iteration is something to admire. Of course, when Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) is attached to a product, the sales potential increases exponentially. Yeezyshowever, are adored for the shoe and the concept itself, and other brands are well aware of this.

Kanye West once did business with Nike and also had a very popular sneaker release under that entity. the Nike Air Yeezy is going for absolutely crazy prices in today’s resale market, due to its unavailability and exclusivity. Kanye West’s relationship with Nike soured due to creative and ownership differences, which led to Ye leaving for Adidas in the first place. Jordan Brand, a subsidiary of Nike, wishes this never happened.

Larry Miller, president of Jordan Brand, spoke with NPR about his take on Kanye West. He also clarified whether either side of the conversation was anti-collaboration, which doesn’t appear to be the case: “I think he’s an incredibly creative and talented person…I wish for him to stay with Nike, that would have been great. I can’t say it won’t happen, I don’t know if it will, but I can’t say it won’t happen, that we could at some point do something with Kanye, I can’t say it’s absolutely not going to happen.

It looks like Larry Miller genuinely appreciates Kanye West’s conceptual and visual abilities and hopes they can work together in the future.
