Kanye West’s Yeezy Olives 350 Goes Out With a Bang
Kanye West’s decade-long footwear legacy comes to a dramatic close with this 350 release dubbed ‘Yechezreel,’ exclusive to Asia, Africa and Australia. This colorway takes a different path than previous releases favored by using earth tones such as brown.
This silhouette features a black Primeknit upper with green SPLY-350 stripes, as well as a black rubber sole and White Boost for added flair.
Kanye West has experienced much personal drama during his life, from allegations of anti-Semitism to showing explicit videos of former employees and having his shoes discontinued by Adidas.
West’s Yeezy Season 3 event at MSG arena was attended by celebrities and fashion influencers alike – including Beyonce who wore her signature Yeezy Boost 350 ‘Yecheil’ sneakers with vibrant red, baby blue and yellow accents.
Kanye West spoke with Zane Lowe about how he’s pushing to complete his next album by the deadline and that he hopes to restore relations with Drake, whom they had been feuding with over recent years.
Bloomberg estimates Kanye West’s Yeezy sneaker business to be worth between $3.2 and $4.7 billion, with his planned fashion collaboration with Gap Inc reportedly adding an estimated additional value of $970 million to his wealth.
Riches of this multi-hyphenate are further increased by his $150 million annual Yeezy royalties. Furthermore, he reaps wealth through various ventures such as music production, real estate investments and owning an indirect stake in Kim Kardashian’s shapewear brand Skims.
Adidas cut ties with him due to comments made about Jews that decreased his net worth by $400 Million, an estimate comprised of financial earnings, real estate investments, cash holdings, and his music catalog. At 43 years old he is richer than Vista Equity Partners’ Robert Smith and World Wide Technology’s David Steward – as well as Oprah Winfrey!
