MIAMI — Miami Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel, a connoisseur of the Yeezy sneaker genre, revealed he’ll be missing “Yeezy Day” on Tuesday — and was disappointed.
“Man, training camp. You’re losing sight of everything,” he said when asked about the all-day shoe sale. “Like national holidays like this.”
McDaniel, in his first season as Dolphins head coach, wears Yeezy sneakers to most of his press conferences and jokes that he owns a “mountain” of shoes designed by Kanye West.
The first version of the shoes was released in February 2015, and the Yeezy brand has since expanded into apparel. “Yeezy Day” is an annual sale by adidas of its Yeezy brand shoes. The shoes, a celebrity favorite, are notoriously hard to buy for retail prices and are usually only available to those who win a raffle for the opportunity to do so.
This year’s version has 17 different designs or colors, including slide sandals. Retail prices range from $75 to $300 depending on style. They are often resold through third-party apps at a greatly increased price.
