Kanye West is rarely a man of few words -- catch up on his most heated fashion rants if you don't believe us -- but such was not the case at the Adidas global brand conference in Germany, which was held exclusively for employees of the company on Monday. West performed live for the crowd, taking a moment to announce that the new Yeezys -- his first shoes in collaboration with Adidas -- will be released this June.

You may remember that one of the aforementioned rants was directed towards Adidas's chief competitor, Nike. West had a falling out with the brand's CEO Mark Parker last year and severed their business relationship, which ended with the instantaneously sold-out Red Octobers. According to West's fiancee Kim Kardashian, the rapper has been putting a lot of work into this new collaboration -- and getting plenty of input from Kendall and Kylie Jenner -- so we're very curious to see what the prototypes look like.
