The new Adilette 22 sandal from Adidas looks like a collaboration between the sports company and rapper Kanye West. At least that's what Kanye himself thinks, as he stated on his page on social networks. According to the performer, such an act is nothing more than a manifestation of disrespect on the part of the corporation for the creativity of talented individuals.
He wrote a post where he addressed the CEO of Adidas:
“I will no longer tolerate blatant copying. These shoes represent the disrespect people in power have for talent. This shoe is a knockoff of Yeezy that was made by Adidas."

Note that Adilette is cheaper than his Yeezy Slides. At the time of writing, the post has already been deleted. It is not known whether further legal litigation will follow, since global brands reserve the right to release models “based on” collaborations, although special agreements between the star and the company cannot be ruled out either.
