Adidas to donate Yeezy sale proceeds to charity

Adidas has said it will sell some of the trainers and other products it made with rapper Kanye West and donate some of the proceeds to charity.

The German sportswear giant cut ties with the celebrity, now known as Ye, last year after he made anti-Semitic comments.

The BBC reports that the decision has cost the firm millions in sales, contributing to its first annual loss in more than three decades.

Shoes from the collaboration remain wildly popular in the resale market.
