Good news if this sort of thing turns you on: Kanye says we can expect to see his Yeezy III’s (or YEEZi’s, depending on who you ask), which will be his first new shoe since inking a deal with adidas earlier this year, sometime in November. Check out the video above to see him speak on it during a performance in Perth, Australia at around the 2:30 mark. He had previously suggested that they would drop in June, but an adidas rep later corrected that estimate, saying we weren’t likely to see any merchandise until next year. Obviously, it would make alot of financial sense for adidas to get them into stores prior to the holiday shopping season, so I guess we’ll see.

It looks like Kanye is going to have even more competition over at adidas. Pharrell has reportedly entered into an agreement with the iconic sportswear company to produce a line of apparel and sneakers built on his Bionic Yarn brand of eco-friendly fabrics.
P said in a statement:
“Working with an iconic brand like adidas is such an incredible opportunity. From the classic track suit, to growing up in Virginia wearing Stan Smiths, adidas has been a staple in my life. Their pieces are timeless. This is an exciting partnership for both me and for Bionic Yarn”
Pharrell joins a growing roster of well respected fashion scions who have creative partnerships with the company including Bathing Ape founder Nigo, designers Rick Owens, Jeremy Scott and Mark McNairy and of course Kanye. The line is expected to debut this Summer.
