Last week, Kanye West released a new song, titled “Facts,” that was basically a diss track directed at Nike. And while its contents weren’t exactly all that factual, Ye did say some harsh things regarding the brand he was formerly associated with, most notably that “Yeezy jumped over the Jumpman.” Since then, rumors have been circulating as to the possibility of Nike suing Mr. West. While that has yet to be determined, maybe the Swoosh had something in mind to troll Kanye all along.
Here we get a look at Nike’s new Air Entertainer sneaker that draws significant similarities to Ye’s Nike Air Yeezy 2, which is currently being petitioned to be brought back. The heel is the most noticeable detail mimicking the Yeezys, in addition to an Air Max unit in the heel and the overall shape of the silhouette. Oh, and let’s not forget about the name either, the Air Entertainer.
Seeing as the shoe is already available — and in a popular all-red look — they have of course been in the works for some time now. But are they meant as a jab at Kanye? Who knows, but you can however pick up a pair today online.
