Did Geno Smith Wear A Pair Of Fake Air Yeezy II “Red October” Sneakers Over The Weekend?
We imagine that life is pretty good for New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith right now. Although a lot of people out there didn’t expect much from the Jets and Smith this season, they are 5-4 on the year. And while Smith hasn’t played his best football in recent weeks, he’s still getting a lot of credit for injecting life into the Jets organization. It’s also worth noting that he’s doing this in one of the biggest markets in the NFL, so he’s receiving a ton of attention for everything that he has been able to do so far this season with the Jets.
Life isn’t just good on the football field for Smith, though. It’s also good off it. So good, in fact, that Smith somehow managed to come up on a pair of Air Yeezy II “Red October” sneakers last week. How? Well, when he first showed up courtside at a Miami Heat/Brooklyn Nets game with the Yeezy II sneakers on, people naturally assumed that Jay Z helped Smith get a pair. Smith is signed to Jay Z‘s sports representation agency Roc Nation Sports, so it doesn’t seem like it would be too, too difficult for him to land a pair. But the “Red Octobers” have been under lock and key in recent months and not even Jay Z himself has worn a pair. So would he really get Smith a pair of “Red Octobers” before getting a pair for himself? It seems odd.
With that in mind, a bunch of sneakerheads and people in the know called Smith out for wearing fake “Red Octobers” over the weekend. They concluded that the Yeezy IIs he wore couldn’t possibly be real because they’re simply too hard to get right now. Smith responded by putting up two photos of his Yeezy II “Red October” sneakers on Instagram in an effort to prove that they were real. But he removed those photos a short time later, which made it appear as though he had discovered that his kicks were fake. You can check out the two since-deleted photos below.
