According to TMZ, Kanye West is now suing Walmart for selling “fake adidas YEEZY Foam Runners.” Word of the lawsuit comes after the retail chain filed a notice of opposition with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office claiming that YEEZY was infringing on its logo.

Priced between $23.99 and $24.49 USD, the “Daeful Mens Womens Kids Summer Beach Shoes Foam Runner Anti Slipper Sandals Casual” found on Walmart’s website is an exact replica of YEEZY‘s unique design which sells for $80 USD. Coming in seven different colors, the ‘Ye and his YEEZY claim that they are losing millions of dollars because of Walmart’s sale of the “fake YEEZY Foam Runners.”

The lawsuit holds Walmart responsible for selling an “unauthorized exact copy” at a significantly lower price to dupe customers and profit off authentic YEEZY products. Despite a legal warning, the “Daeful Mens Womens Kids Summer Beach Shoes Foam Runner Anti Slipper Sandals Casual” can still be found on Walmart’s website.

Walmart has also issued an official statement regarding the lawsuit, “The product referenced in the complaint is not sold by Walmart, but rather by third-party Marketplace sellers. We take allegations like this seriously and are reviewing the claim. We will respond in court as appropriate after we have been served with the complaint.”
