Patience has its rewards, and according to Kanye himself, it might even earn you a pair of Yeezys. After sparking some controversy at E!'s post-Grammy show, 'Ye sat down with Ryan Seacrest this morning for a revealing interview on 102.7 KIIS-FM. Through the course of the 40-minute conversation, Kanye touched on his Beck interruption, upcoming clothing line with adidas, and most importantly, the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost.
Kanye acknowledges not everyone may have a chance at his coveted sneakers and apologizes to "All the kids and all the parents that can't get the shoes currently because there's only 9,000, and 'cause they're $350 and if they're out of anyone's price range." He makes it a point that safety is one of his major concerns saying "I just wanna make sure that we keep it safe. I've heard about people getting hurt for sneaker culture in the past. I just want everyone to be safe and be patient."
'Ye also acknowledges that he knows "You can run up on this kid and take his Yeezys but just be patient because we'll make more Yeezys. Eventually everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys. adidas has promised me that because there's so many kids that have wanted them that couldn't get them and I talked to the heads at adidas and they said we can make them."
So there you have it. After weeks of rumored production numbers and price tags, Kanye sets the record straight and confirms there are 9,000 pairs available from the initial launch and that they'll be $350. However, the most important detail he dropped is that there will be more pairs on the way, and that everyone who wants a pair will eventually be able to get them. Hopefully that helps to ease some of the thirst as we head into one of the biggest releases in recent memory. Stay safe out there, you heard the man.
