Duke Ihenacho taped his cleats so that they looked like slippers

Thursday June 11th, 2015

Washington Redskins safety Duke Ihenacho knows how to make a fashion statement with his feet.

Ihenacho came out on the field for Thursday's organized team activities wearing what looked like house slippers—just about the furthest thing you'd expect a football player to wear on the field.

But they weren't actually slippers. Ihenacho had simply taped his cleats to look like slippers, and did so pretty convincingly. 

It's not the first time Ihenaco has played a visual trick with his cleats, either. Two weeks ago he made them look like Chuck Taylor's, with taped on laces and all.

You can see photos of both of the safety's cleat creations below.
