If you're locked into social media tonight, you've probably come across videos and images from opening night of Kanye West's Saint Pablo Tour in Indianapolis. The rapper is running through a loaded set list while performing in the middle of the arena on a floating stage, which seems to be what everyone is talking about tonight. However, it wouldn't be a Kanye show without some sort of sneaker discussion, and that holds true tonight.
During a break, West took a moment out to speak on his former collaborators at Nike — namely CEO Mark Parker, who was on the receiving end of harsh words from West during his last tour. Perhaps above the feud now that he's been validated by his success at adidas, West spoke with grateful tone this time around.

West then turned his attention toward his friends at adidas, singling out VP of Global Entertainment & Influencer Marketing Jon Wexler.

This could finally mark the end of West taking shots at Parker and the Swoosh, but we know better than to make that assumption.
