Earlier this week, it was reported that some sneakerheads were experiencing broken zippers on their adidas Yeezy Boosts. "Zipper Gate" caused a slight commotion on the Internet, but concerns may soon be alleviated as adidas says they are taking steps to investigate the issue. 

Nice Kicks received a statement from adidas regarding the defects, and the brand had this to say: "We are aware that a limited number of consumers are having issues with the zippers on their adidas Yeezy Boost shoes. We are working with affected parties to investigate what might have caused the issues. We appreciate their patience and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

'Heads probably weren't too thrilled that their $350 Yeezys were already breaking, but it's reassuring to know that adidas is taking steps to correct what could have been a nightmare.
