As the weather heats up, lemonade stands will be back in business as the most popular summer hustle among the youth. Those hitting their local stands this week may be surprised to find sneakers in stock as well.
Today, Kanye West and Adidas teamed up with families across the country to stock the upcoming "Geode" Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 at various homemade lemonade stands. The idea was not only to bring families closer together, but to raise funds in support of mental health awareness. West's wife Kim Kardashian-West tweeted about the venture earlier today.
