Kanye West’s YEEZY brand is worth more than a BILLION dollars, $1.5 in sales by the end of 2019, and he owns it all! This episode we discuss the pros and cons of Kanye’s trip to the top of the sneaker business.
We also discuss the Concepts x Versace collaboration, what it means for both brands and who carved the lane for a “skate shop” in Boston to become a collaborator with one of the biggest luxury brands on the planet.
