Adidas has officially announced their plans to release remaining adidas Yeezy products starting on May 31st. As part of the agreement, Ye will receive a 15% commission on the profits, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Philonise & Keeta Floyd Institute for Social Change.

After terminating their YEEZY partnership in October, adidas has been exploring options for the existing Yeezy inventory. They sought feedback from various stakeholders, including employees, organizations, communities, and consumers, to responsibly manage the products. The decision to sell and donate the remaining inventory was the preferred option among these groups. To protect their supply chain partners, adidas proceeded with already committed production orders even after terminating the partnership.

Recently, the adidas India site briefly posted an image revealing a range of adidas Yeezy footwear, including popular models like the Yeezy 350 "Pirate Black," Zebra 350s, Utility Black 500s, Yeezy Foam Runners, and Yeezy Slides in various styles. The release is expected to start on June 1st, although specific release dates for each drop have not been disclosed. It's also mentioned that in addition to restocks, new adidas Yeezy styles that have not been introduced before can be expected.
