Kim Kardashian Goes to a Meeting With Adidas… While Wearing Nike Leggings
The Kardashians are masters when it comes to branding their image, so we have to admit, we’re surprised by Kim’s most recent brand-related flub.
On Friday, January 3, Kim joined Kanye West for a meeting with Adidas, but she made the mistake of showing up in workout gear by Nike.
It’s not just the fact that Kim’s wearing the brand’s competitor that poses a problem, but Kanye’s recent anti-Nike remarks. According to the singer, who ended his creative partnership with the company back in late November, Nike failed to offer him royalties on his Air Yeezy kicks because he’s not a professional athlete. (His response? “I’m a performance athlete.”) He also accused the company of attempting to delay the release of his new shoe Red October, choosing to respond in a 10-minute-long rant at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
If you ask us, Kanye’s $10 million deal with Adidas was a seriously strategic F-you to Nike and its CEO, Mark Parker.
In light of the new agreement and Kanye’s clearly passionate feelings, we kind of can’t believe that he even let Kim out of the house in a pair of Nike leggings. Doesn’t he dress her these days?
