WHAT ARE THOSE???
Kris Jenner seems to have revealed Kanye West’s next Yeezy prototype. While vacationing in St. Bart’s Thursday (Dec.26), Jenner was photographed wearing the latest version of the shoe. It appears as though Jenner is wearing a brand new version of the “Scuba” that is specifically made for women. The pair she is wearing is much different from the version that her son-in-law was photographed in earlier this year.
According to TMZ, the new Yeezy Scuba shoe is expected to retail for $220, while Yeezy as a brand is expected pull in $1.5 billion from 2019 sneaker sales. There have been two recent versions of Yeezy Boost 350 that have been released. They went for $200 but they are being resold online for more than $300.
West currently owns two large ranches in Cody, Wyoming, but he is also planning to build an Adidas Yeezy sample lab there.
According to Hype Beast, “West has been open about his desire for sustainable, domestic production, and this development follows shortly after he announced that he was moving the YEEZY headquarters from Calabasas, California to one of his properties in Wyoming.”
“Although details are scarce about what this “sample lab” will provide, its opening entails the conversion of a 11,300 square foot warehouse as well as the construction of an adjacent temporary 1,056 square foot facility. The lab will employ between 10-20 workers, and may be operable by the tail end of January. This isn’t YEEZY’s first foray into the area — West already has around 30 employees based in the greater Cody area, working off his “West Lake” ranch. The property that West plans to expand on is owned by Cody Forward, a local nonprofit economic development organization. Currently, Cody’s main industry is tourism, as it was named after Western legend William “Buffalo Bill” Cody,” Hype Beast reports.
