Kanye West partnered with Adidas to sell limited pairs of his famous Yeezy shoes at pop-up “lemonade stands” in select places across the country Sunday.
West and wife Kim Kardashian’s stand was located in front of their Calabasas Estate. The limited stock of unreleased Yeezy Boost 700 V2 “Geode” shoes sold for $300 at different homemade stands across the United States. All proceeds from the shoe sales were said to be donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, according to Page Six.
