The NFL is allowed players a one-week amnesty to wear custom cleats to raise awareness for charities that are important to them. Philadelphia Eagles receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has a curious one.
He wore Yeezy cleats, Kanye West’s signature shoe. Because he pretended it was a charity, the “Yeezy Foundation”, he was fined $6,076, according to ESPN’s Tim McManus.
There’s no doubt that these Yeezy cleats are fire, but Kanye’s clothing line is not a charity and the “Yeezy Foundation” does not exist at all. So basically Green-Beckham just wanted an excuse to wear Yeezys, which is fine — but don’t pretend it’s a charity, man. It’ll cost you.
