Kanye West's infamous Nike Air Yeezy 2 "Red October" celebrated its fourth anniversary last week, and while he's now team adidas, TMZ reports that the rapper/designer is looking to once again claim the exclusive rights to the shoe’s nickname.

Kanye initially filed a trademark application back in 2013 when he officially cut ties with Nike, but never completed the necessary paperwork, according to documents obtained by TMZ. With the moniker and sneaker still a prominent piece in sneaker/streetwear culture, Kanye could possibly use his "Red October" mark for clothing, footwear and more if his application is approved.

For additional details, be sure to read the full story on TMZ.
