Kanye West Says a Million Pairs of adidas Yeezy Boost Will Be Produced This Year

“I guess in a media world where you never hear the truth, the truth can come off as crazy…”

Does Kanye West saying that adidas will produce a million pairs of Yeezy Boost this year sound crazy? Well, if his above tweet from earlier today is any indication, it shouldn’t sound crazy at all.

Just a short time ago, in a quiet moment that West mentioned felt like returning “home from battle,” he said something that adidas Yeezy Boost fans have wanted to hear since the very first pair released: adidas will be making a lot more pairs. One million pairs this year, to be exact.

Quantity, not affordability, has been the ongoing issue with the adidas Yeezy Boost. This news from West should leave fans very hopefully, as most still don’t own a pair of Yeezy Boosts even though they desperately want to. West didn’t go into specifics as to how the one million pairs will be dispersed, but he did mention that adidas is opening new factories to apparently handle the production. This, of course, won’t solve the larger supply and demand issue, yet the sheer numbers should lift the spirits of those who still hope to land a pair.
