Kanye trademarks Yeezy sock shoes
Multi-award-winning rapper Kanye West has filed to trademark Yeezy sock shoes after Adidas announced plans to sell the remaining Yeezy shoes in their custody.
According to Adidas, the remaining Yeezy shoes will be sold and proceeds donated to a charity. This is coming after the fashion brand ended its business relationship with the rapper sometime last year over a string of anti-Semitic remarks.
Reacting to this announcement, Kanye moved to trademark his Yeezy sock shoes. TMZ reports that the 45-year-old rapper submitted documents on May 4 by West’s Mascotte Holdings Inc., and they listed the product as ‘YZY SOCK SHOES.’
The forms reportedly carried very little detail about what the sock shoes would look like, although they were described as ‘Socks; socks with leather soles.’
