Khloe Kardashian is always style-conscious and she’s always on the cutting edge in regard to her personal style. The KUWTK star stepped out on a Monday night sporting Yeezy sneakers that were set to be released on Tuesday, one day after Adidas abruptly severed ties with Kanye West in response to his support for President Trump.

Khloe Kardashian steps out in Kanye West-inspired Adidas sneakers hours after Adidas announced they were ending their partnership with the rapper. The 35-year-old reality TV star was seen leaving her home in Calabasas, California wearing the sneakers and a black hoodie with the Yeezy logo displayed on the front. She accessorized with a large bag and sunglasses. It is not clear if she plans to keep wearing the shoes or if this was a one-time appearance.
Adidas had announced earlier in the day that they were terminating their relationship with West, citing creative differences as their main reason for parting ways. The company released a statement saying: “Adidas has come to a mutual decision with Kanye West to end their relationship. While both parties have expressed an intent to work together on future projects, it has been mutually determined that this will not happen.”
West responded by posting a series of tweets defending himself and his work ethic. He wrote: “My values are what got me here – I will never let them down.” Hours later, he shared another tweet which read: “I am one of the most honest people you will ever meet.”

Khloe Kardashian vents on Twitter
Khloe Kardashian has taken to Twitter to express her frustrations with Adidas over their decision to end their sponsorship of Kanye West. “Adidas you lost a great customer over this,” Kardashian wrote on Twitter. “You should be ashamed of yourself.” She later posted an image of herself in Yeezy sneakers, writing, “I’ll still stand behind my husband no matter what.”
In a statement to the New York Times, Adidas said that it had ended its partnership with West “because of creative differences.” The company added that it hopes to work with West again in the future. Kardashian’s tweets come days after reports surfaced that West was considering creating his own sneaker line.
Kardashian is not the only one upset about the split. TMZ reported that several Nike employees are angry about West’s decision to go independent. One employee said, “We’re all so pissed off because we put our heart and soul into this project and he just pulls the rug out from under us.”
