Kanye West’s Yeezy products are still being sold on the Farfetch website

  • Global fashion platform Farfetch is still selling more than 200 Yeezy products on its site.
  • Companies including Adidas and Balenciaga have cut ties with West following his antisemitic comments.
  • Foot Locker is also pulling products from its online and brick-and-mortar stores.

Luxury fashion retailer Farfetch is still selling Yeezy products despite a growing number of companies cutting ties with founder Kanye West.

Companies including Adidas, Balenciaga and Gap have cut ties with the rapper’s Yeezy brand, and ended its partnerships after he made antisemitic comments earlier this month.

Farfetch was founded by Portuguese billionaire José Neves in 2007 and it has since expanded globally. The company listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 2018.

Farfetch had more than 200 Yeezy sneakers, boots, and slides on its website on Sunday and is yet to make a statement on whether it will continue to sell Yeezy products.

Two items viewed by Insider were a Season 7 Desert Boot in “House Blue” for £980 ($1,138) and Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Hired” sneakers for £534 ($620).

Farfetch did not respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Gap is removing Yeezy Gap, a collaborative line, from its brick-and-mortar stores and has shut down the Yeezy Gap website after it said that hate and racism did not adhere to its values and was “inexcusable.”

Balenciaga and Adidas also pulled the plug on their partnerships with Yeezy over West’s comments. Adidas expects to take a 250 million euro ($246 million) hit to net profit this year as a result.

Foot Locker said on Tuesday it was ending sales of Yeezy shoes at its stores. The retailer told Insider in a statement this week that it “will not be supporting any future Yeezy product drops” and that it had told staff to remove existing products from store shelves and online.
