Kim is currently divorcing her estranged husband Kanye West, who is behind the Yeezy brand in collaboration with Adidas. As you probably know, the split hasn't been the most peaceful. Kanye has accused Kim of "antagonising" him by allowing their eight-year-old daughter, North West, to have a TikTok account and stopping him from taking their other three children to Sunday Service. He also has been threatening her new boyfriend Pete Davidson online, even making a music video where he decapitates him.
So, with Kim now officially legally single, it seems the SKIMS mogul has decided it's time to remove all ties to Kanye by flogging her Yeezy pieces on Kardashian Kloset.
In case you didn't know, Kardashian Kloset is the Kardashian-Jenners clothing website. The website was created to "promote sustainability" and each item is hand-selected by a family member, allowing fans to own one-of-a-kind items worn by the famous family.
Kim was selling two pairs of the same Yeezy heeled sandals. One was priced at $350, while the other cost $375 because it comes with the box. However, at the time of writing the listing has been removed. It's not known if the items have sold or if it's due to the backlash because the listing gained a lot of attention on social media.
A lot of people found it strange how Kim Kardashian, who is a billionaire, is selling shoes that she more than likely received for free. Meanwhile, others thought it was simply an indication that she is truly done with Kanye.
"She might be the greediest person on the planet," someone commented on a now-viral Reddit thread about the listing. Another added: "Selling stuff you’ve gotten for free when you’re already a 'billionaire' is so GROSS."

I’m curious as to why celebrities who are mega rich feel the need to sell their old clothes/accessories when they could give them away without losing a dime? 🤔 https://t.co/jtWqCnShVC— 🦋 patience 🦋 (@cosmonade) March 23, 2022
Kardashian Kloset has been the source of backlash since it was launched, with many complaining that the Kardashian-Jenners should be giving their items away for free considering their immense wealth.
Earlier this year, Khloe Kardashian was criticised for listing her three-year-old daughter True's used clothing, with some items costing even more than the retail price.
