It's official. Kanye has left Nike to team up with Adidas and their Y-3 line. In case you were living under a rock for the past 24 hours, Kanye left Nike because he was not receiving any loyalties.

Even Kanye West has had enough of the Red October Nike Air Yeezy 2. The always controversial rapper confirmed at his Yeezus show in New York that he has committed to Adidas. Yeezy will team up with the Adidas Y-3 line to form the "YEEZI", with an "i", clothing and sneaker line.
Will resale prices on the Adidas Y-3 "Yeezi" line be as outrageous as the Nike Air Yeezy's? Time will tell. Just hoping he doesn't come up with any clever "Black February" or "Green March" colorways because the internet will probably melt and it will ruin all of our lives.

In todays day in age of the internet and online shopping, you can never be too sure what you're getting until you have it in your hands. This is a particularly scary process for sneakerheads, who often pay well over retail for sneakers via the internet.
Thankfully, stores like Flight Club exist. Albeit, their 80/20 consignment makes prices a bit higher than usual, the peace of mind that you're getting an authentic and not a knock-off is worth the extra bucks.
