"This is Ye driving down the same street Kobe passed on. Maybe I feel that Mamba spirit right now. To Kasper, I'm not standing for this blatant copying any more. To all sneaker culture, to every ball player or even if you work at the store. This is for everyone who wants to express themselves but feel they can't cause they will lose their contract or be called crazy."

Here are some of the comments from the post:
"He's not wrong."
"He ain't lying, but they look nice."
"All Yeezys are designed from Adidas moulds. They aren’t all his engineering and designs. Have they not picked up on how the entire Yeezy design changed when he left Nike."
"Adidas slides look way better."
