I always wonder why Kanye didn’t sue over his amazing Yeezy Boost sneakers that pretty much everyone imitated. But he’s got his ducks in a row this time.
The rapper and designer filed the suit Thursday in Los Angeles saying Walmart has been selling fake versions of his bizarre-looking Foam Runner slides.
While most people agreed the shoe was ridiculous looking, they sold out immediately after they were released last year. Likely because Kanye’s Yeezy brand sneakers have proven to go up in value over time.
Ye’s sneaker went for $75 and Walmarts are going for about $25. Take a look at the comparison pics. It’s a perfect rip off. Kanye may be worth a billion, but Walmart has billions to lose, so go get that big retail Pablo!
