MIAMI — Miami Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel, a Yeezy sneaker connoisseur, announced he would miss Tuesday’s “Yeezy Day” — and was disappointed.
“Man, training camp. You lose sight of everything,” he said when asked about the all-day sale of the boots. “Like national holidays like this.”
McDaniel, who is in his first season as the Dolphins head coach, wears Yeezy sneakers to most of his press conferences and jokes that he owns a “mountain” of Kanye West-designed shoes.
The first version of the shoes was released in February 2015, and the Yeezy brand has since expanded into clothing. “Yeezy Day” is an annual sale of Yeezy-branded shoes by Adidas. A celebrity favorite, the shoes are notoriously difficult to purchase at retail prices and are generally only available to those who win a raffle for the opportunity.
This year’s release includes 17 different designs or colors including slide sandals. Retail prices range from $75 to $300 depending on the style. They are often resold through third-party apps at a premium.
