f you don’t like Kanye West’s adidas sneakers, you’re racist. At least, that’s what the man behind the adidas Yeezy 350 Boost said in a new interview.
West sat down for a two-hour session for ShowStudio’s “In Camera” series, the entirety of which appears above, and tossed in a few strong words on his most recent fashion endeavors. Perhaps the boldest comment, spotted by Complex, was his charge that people pretended they didn’t like the Yeezy 350 Boosts because they were designed by a black man.
“They saw the 350s and acted like they didn’t like them because they’re racist,” he said.
West went on to compare his body of work to that of Michelangelo, proclaim his shoes as the most sought-after on the Internet, and cite the worldwide lineups for his sneakers as proof that he’s already earned plenty of respect as a designer.
