You know it’s totes serious when it comes down to getting your kicks out! Yup. Page Six sources spotted Kanye getting his giant sneaker collection out of Kim Kardashian’s House last week. We’re talking 500 pairs out on the street!

So, the news of Kanye and Kim’s divorce broke in early January. And since then, all that sneakerheads have been thinking about is the impact this may cause the Yeezys. Especially that Kim Kardashian is a partner! And now with West moving out his most precious belongings, we can’t help but wonder. Are we witnessing the downfall of the second fastest-growing company in the history of sneakers? Or will Kim and Kanye know how to separate their personal life drama from the sneaker business? Are we gonna find Yeezus walking around in Jordans. We’ll see. 

Kim and Kanye's divorce affect the YeezyAbout the Yeezy Hype

There’s no doubt the Yeezy is now one of the most stylish kicks and a huge must-have for sneaker collectors and sneakerheads. Those Ye pairs have proven their hype through the hype history of their releases. They so hype that people last year ignored the Covid-19 safety regulations for a hype Yeezy release. Singapore authorities were stunned by a gathering in front of Orchard Gateways outlet on December 4, 2020. And if you recall, that was one night before Dec.5, the release day of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Bred. So, those Yeezy fans made a conscious decision to flaunt the Covid-19 regulation for a Yeezy pair. Although this act leads to a $10,000 fund and imprisonment for up to 6 months. But, nobody cared. Who can blame them if they wanted a pair of this limited edition release?

And that’s just 1 story of how hype this $3- 4 billion dollar brand is. So, what will happen after Kim and Kanye’s divorce? 

Kim Kardashian: A Yeezy Part Owner

Ever since 2018, Kim has been a Yeezy part-owner. In fact, at that time, the rapper/designer gifted his wife a percentage of his brand as a mother’s day gift and a thank you for refusing a business contract with a competitive brand. However, not long ago, in fact, the same day that Kanye got out his kicks, Kim was doing something else. She posted on her Instagram a beachside picture rocking the Yeezy Foam RNNR Ararat.

Some fans asked Kim to give the kicks back to Kanye. And others asking her to remove them and move on with the divorce. This may be a simple “Business is Business” statement. She is a part-business owner after all. And, as a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, she has the right to showcase the shoes and promote their sales. In fact, those Yeezy Crocs have an average resale price of $382 on StockX. However, as Kim and Kanye’s divorce came out in January, and Kim wore them in early February, sales skyrocketed and hit $1,250 on February 13.

With all that’s been said and done, we can’t predict the rapper and partner’s next move. However, as two successful business owners, they may know how to pull it together. For the sake of Yeezy and their children. Hence, the whole Kim and Kanye’s divorce thing may actually take Yeezy’s hype up, or down. The same way it fluctuates with every important life event that occurs with Kanye. 

In addition, Ye brand knows how to dig its way into the list of latest sneaker trends. There’s no questioning that. The hype of Yeezy kicks and their swag aesthetic won’t fade that easily.
