Kanye West is NOT here for Walmart selling fake Yeezy’s.
Ye’s legal time worked hard to get the department store to pull knock-off Yeezy Foam RNNRs from the shelves. Kanye filed a lawsuit against Walmart, claiming their $25 version of his shoe, which costs $75, could cost him “hundreds of millions.”
Walmart removed their version of the shoe, but it’s still available online. Walmart claims it’s from a third party. Another company, Esty, also has a knock-off version of Yeezy’s, and it’s not clear if Ye is taking legal action. TMZ reports nothing has been filed yet.

This isn’t the first time Kanye and Walmart had issues. A few months back, Walmart sued Yeezy for copying its sun logo.
