Kanye West is a man of many talents! Recently, the rapper announced that he was leaving behind his endorsement contract with Nike to work with Adidas instead. He credited his six-month-old daughter North West as being the inspiration behind the change.
"The old me, without a daughter, would have taken the Nike deal because I just love Nikes so much. But the new me, with a daughter, takes the Adidas deal because I have royalties and I have to provide for my family," he said in a radio interview announcing the news.

And it looks like the 36-year-old new dad hasn't wasted any time! This morning, Kanye told an interviewer that he had just come back from visiting Adidas' main office in Germany. While there, he designed twenty different pairs of shoes.
"We designed the entire women's collection. We designed the entire men's collection. And we designed 20 shoes. We coming in September and it’s about to be a paradigm shift," he said in a chat with a radio station in his native Chicago.
