Kanye is no longer with Nike, but that hasn't stopped the brand from releasing the exclusive "Red October" Air Yeezy II and giving them to big time celebrities. 

Kanye wasn't pleased with the way Nike treated him while he was with the Swoosh, and it appears he's still not happy with the way things are playing out. During a recent Yeezus performance, the mastermind behind the Red October took a moment to apologize for the release of the super rare Nike's; 

Kanye's apology comes just a week after Nike unexpectedly dropped the kicks, which begs the question is Nike merely trolling 'Ye? One would think they would've reached out to Kanye before releasing the Red Octobers, but it seems as though they just made them available right before the 10 year anniversary of "College Dropout," without any real approval from the man himself. 

While he claims his collab with Adidas will be more readily available, they won't be nearly as coveted as the Red Octobers. It will be interesting to see how many people actually seek out his sneakers now that they won't be so exclusive, especially since Adidas is no where near as popular as Nike.
