Despite rumors stating YEEZY sales have dropped due to Kanye West‘s recent dabblings in politics and his association with President Trump, adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted has finally addressed the situation.
During a recent call with CNBC, Rorsted stated the Three Stripes’ “had a very strong third quarter in our YEEZY line.” He went on to say, “We expect to continue strong business with Kanye West also in the years to come. So far, we’ve seen absolutely no slow down in the Yeezy business and in our collaboration with Kanye West.”
Throughout the rest of the interview, Rorsted also addressed the company’s reaction to the recent U.S. mideterm elections and West’s controversial year, “If he stays away from politics, that’s his choice. We don’t sign up to all of the statements he makes, we sign up to the creative work that we jointly do, which has been extremely successful for both parties.”
