Kanye West claims Adidas is building more factories to make his Yeezy shoes
Kanye West has claimed Adidas is planning to build more factories to cope with the demand for his Yeezy collection.
The 38-year-old rapper has revealed the popular sports brand, which he has worked with on his own range since 2013, will be creating "a million" new pairs of sneakers this year and has hinted they'll be on sale at a cheaper price as well.
Taking to his Twitter account, the fashion designer said: "Really happy to get the quality of the products better at half the prices of last year...@Adidas is making a million Yeezys this year, opening up new factories... (sic)"
However, although Kanye is teasing his next collection will be a fraction of the price, it seems the 'Bound 2' hitmaker is putting his fans through their paces for the upcoming release.
Kanye - who has two children, North, two, and Saint, three months, with his wife Kim Kardashian West - is making his fans line up outside numerous stores, which have all been allocated around 60 pairs of Yeezys, in the hope of nabbing a wristband from shop managers on March 18.
Managers will reportedly hand out the 60 wristbands, which makes receivers eligible to buy a pair for $350 next week, but fans will be forced to return to the store three times a day - noon, 4pm and 8pm, to show their identity card.
If they miss a single slot or fail to show their ID, they get their wristband taken off them and the next person in line will be in with the chance of nabbing the shoes, according to TMZ.
