Kanye West just wrapped up his interview with Ryan Seacrest on 102.7 KIIS-FM. He talked about the Grammys, his adidas Yeezy 750 Boost, and the adidas show at New York Fashion Week. Of the adidas show, he confirmed that he will be showing the presentation 10 times over the next few days, and will stream it across the globe.
He also confirmed that the only 9,000 of the adidas Yeezy 750 Boost will be produced. He also said each pair would cost $350.
Here are some of the choice quotes from the interview:
"We're gonna show the presentation 10 times over the next two days, where if you're a family in Brooklyn, you can come and bring your kids and just check it out. But wait a second, not just Brooklyn. We're going to stream the presentation to 40 locations around the globe—Johannesburg, Melbourne, Sydney, London, Atlanta, Chicago. If you're in Atlanta, and you're a fresh kid, and you wore the Margielas 'cause you saw me up there on the "Yeezus" tour with them and your girl is fresh and she got some Alaïa shoes off of eBay because she saw Kim wear them at fashion week, and you're doing your thing and everything and you find out 'Ye's got this fashion show that you go to a theatre to see at 4 o'clock, you're going to go see that. You're going to want to feel that energy there's and I want everybody... This isn't about elitism, this isn't about separatism. This is about as many people being involved with this vision as possible.
"The shoes come out this Saturday, which is instant gratification. I want to apologize 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. 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. Just be patient. I know 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."
"Next season, my focus is gonna be doing high school uniforms. When I was growing up, kids wanted Jordans, kids got killed for Jordans. Now that I'm in a position, I'mma make sure everyone gets Yeezys."
Stay tuned for more.
