In the afternoon session, it wasn’t what came out of Dan Mullen’s mouth that made waves but what he was wearing on his feet.
Thanks to the school’s partnership with Adidas, the Mississippi State head coach showed up to the Hoover, Ala. event wearing Kanye West’s new sneakers — the Yeezy 350 Boost Lows, which are currently selling for around $800 a pair on eBay.
“I try to be swagged up,” Mullen said at SEC Media Days. “I got a little sock game going, too. I was talking to the guys at Adidas, they’re like, ‘Hey, this is the hottest shoe.’ I’m like, ‘Well, I like to wear kind of cool shoes I think when I go somewhere.’ I don’t go too overboard with the suits sometimes, a little more conservative that way. But with the sock game and the shoe game, I try to have some swag on whenever I can.”
