Kanye West covers the new May 2020 issue of GQ magazine and in a very in-depth interview, he opened up for the first time about Nike in over half a decade. He was asked if he felt okay with the Swoosh possibly creating retro versions of his Air Yeezy sneakers and replied, "Man, I'm with everything."

He further explains, "Man, anything that the kids want and the people want. People should be able to have what they want." West's first Nike sneaker was the Air Yeezy and he debuted an unreleased "Grammy's" sample in 2008 before the first public versions released in 2009 in the "Zen," "Tan" and "Blink" versions. The last Nike Air Yeezy to release was the "Red October" colorway of the Air Yeezy 2 in 2014, which commands nearly $10,000 USD on the resell market. Many of the sneakers are now in the "wear at your own risk" stages of their original life cycles.

West also dives into his work process while out on his ranch in Wyoming, his faith and fashion among other topics. You can read the full interview here.
