It didn’t take long for the No Fun League to crack down on all the buzz created when adidas outfitted a few of its players in exclusive Yeezy cleats for their Week 1 games. Von Miller set the internet ablaze when he posted pictures of his all-white Yeezy 750 Boost cleats before the Broncos took on the Panthers in last week’s opening game. The Yeezy Boost is the famed sneaker-turned-cleat that was, of course, designed by Kanye West for the brand, and often resales for upwards of $2,000. Miller didn’t actually wear them during the game, but did warm up in the one-of-a-kind kicks to much fanfare.

Houston Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins one-upped Miller by wearing his Yeezy 350 Boost cleats during the Texans’ win over the Bears in Houston on Sunday. Hopkins rocked the cleats and gashed the Bears for a sensational touchdown, but if the NFL has its way, that’ll be the last time Pro Bowler takes the field in the multi-colored shoes.
