Today (Dec. 28), Kanye West took to social media to officially announce the Yeezy Pods, a unique style of footwear that he’d been spotted wearing over the past few months. The item, which resembles a pair of black socks with a thin sole at the bottom, comes in three sizes and can be preordered on Ye’s official website for $200. When said purchase will be shipped to the buyer is yet to be confirmed.
In addition to the Yeezy Pods, fans can preorder Ye and Ty Dolla $ign’s long-awaited album, Vultures, in digital, CD, and vinyl formats. There’s also merch related to the oft-delayed project, including T-shirts, pants, and shorts.
The footwear announcement comes on the heels of an apology that Ye made to the Jewish community for his actions over the past year. As previously reported by REVOLT, the message was shared on his Instagram and written entirely in Hebrew.
“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions,” read the post. “It was not my intention to hurt or disrespect, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused. I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me, and I am committed to making amends and promoting unity.”
Not long after the apology was made, the Anti-Defamation League shared a statement in response.
“After causing untold damage by using his vast influence and platform to poison countless minds with vicious antisemitism and hate, an apology in Hebrew may be the first step on a long journey towards making amends to the Jewish community and all those who he has hurt,” the organization tweeted. “Ultimately, actions will speak louder than words, but this initial act of contrition is welcome.”
