After a class action lawsuit from shareholders Adidas ultimately made the decision to sell the rest of their inventory.

A new lawsuit deals with $100 million from a marketing fund Adidas gave Kanye West for marketing his Yeezy products. According to Uproxx, the companies court filings claim that the funds were misused by West. Additionally they claim that $75 million of the funds ended up in various bank accounts of West's that they weren't supposed to.
