I’m saying NEVER...man if they started making even 20% of things manufactured overseas here In the states those product would almost disappear....everyone got a flat screen these days...you know why?? Cause they mad cheap...if they started making them here the price doubled we’d move on to something....Americans just love cheap shit

Lmao. I agree prices would def go up but I think it's possible tho. I don't know what that would mean for the future of YEEZY shoes. I already think the shoes are too high. $300 for the 700, nah!

Adidas go to market strategy is and will always suck...any product that they have that has ever been worth a damn they canabalize...they had a winner with UB...they had a winner with NMD...shit they had a winner with ZX Flux...they had a winner with Doom’s...I could go on and on...but they always figure out a way to whore them out and kill themselves from the inside...although they didn’t specifically mention Yeezy line in there last earnings call I’m sure that is what they were alluding too...adidas chases short money never long which is why they will always lose...it sounded like they may pull back on that but who knows..I’ll tell you this...to your point they can’t continue to mass produce at that price point or you will see Yeezy not only sit but end up in the outlets...only reason they get away with it now is the wholesale market for Yeezy is very small numbers....adidas is pretty much direct to consumer with that line which is why it’s so profitable....if they make it here they have to greatly reduce production...

Great points made. As for DTC, that's the move for all these brands. The goal is to eventually cut out the retailer and sell directly to the consumer and make more money.

I agree, if adidas mass produces Yeezys they will need to drop the price. I think the 350 can be the modern day Stan Smith or Superstar BUT they will have to drop the retail price.
