Walmart Pulls Yeezy Foam Runner Knockoffs Following Kanye West Lawsuit
Written by Basinradio on June 29, 2021
The removal of the knockoffs arrives just days after the music mogul filed the lawsuit against the corporation.
With such a massively successful sneaker empire, it’s no wonder corporations have tried to mimic its success. As we previously reported, Ye and the Yeezy company filed a lawsuit against Walmart for selling fake Adidas Yeezy foam runners on its website. According to new reports, the multinational retail corporation has since pulled the replicas from their site.
Following the news of legal action being taken, the retail chain issued a statement clarifying that the shoes were being sold by a third party and not by Walmart directly. “We take allegations like this seriously and are reviewing the claim. We will respond in court as appropriate after we have been served with the complaint,” said the statement.

It is worth noting that there are plenty of Yeezy knockoffs being listed on other sites, but Ye and his company have yet to take legal action against them.
According to TMZ, nothing else has been filed. Of course, we’ll keep you updated when or if it does.
