Being fresh and fashionable on the field will cost you. Just ask NFL player DeAndre Hopkins. The 24-year-old Houston Texans wide receiver has received a fine for wearing the Kanye West-designed Yeezy cleats.

Next level. Thank you @adidasfballus and Kanye West

Hopkins has a multi-year contract with Adidas, but that’s not the cause for the fine. According to a new report, he received a fine of $6,000 for wearing the shoes.


Apparently, NFL rules say that shoes must have one dominant base color. Yeezy’s don’t fall in that category.¬†Asked if he would wear the shoes again Hopkins said with a laugh:

Only if Kanye wants to pay the fine.

Ye has yet to respond.
