Former NFL player showcases his rare Yeezy collection—and the internet is impressed

Get ready, sneakerheads— former NFL player Shannon Sharpe is bringing the heat.

Sharpe, a former legendary tight end player for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, works alongside Skip Bayless on Fox Sports 1’s Skip and Shannon: Undisputed since 2016.

Sharpe has been a legend in the world of sports analysis for years, and his commentary always seems to get people talking, whether it’s complimentary or unfavorable.

If you’ve ever watched a segment of Undisputed, you’ll know that Sharpe is always immaculately dressed, and his suits almost always steal the show.

But beneath the desk, he can be found wearing high-end, limited-edition sneakers that cost hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Sharpe has shown off his sneaker collection on social media over the years, and it’s rather impressive, as many have agreed.

On Monday, in the wake of Kanye West’s DONDA release, he took to his Twitter to show off the rare Yeezys he acquired.

“I have a lot more Yeezy’s, but I think these are my most exclusive pairs,” Sharpe said in a video posted to his official Twitter while showing four pairs in particular.

Three of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 colorways include the highly sought-after “Red October” model that many believe to be the best shoes of all time.

Sharpe said he bought the Red October shoes from a man in Boston whom he happens to speak to this day on social media.

“He had these [shoes]. I wanted them, so I had to barter with him,” he said.

Sharpe noted that he would get the original owner tickets to the Super Bowl game when the Seattle Seahawks were competing, but he could not go as he was expecting his first child.

As a result, Sharpe offered to get him tickets to the AFC Championships game and was sent the shoes before he exchanged them for tickets.

“He trusted me so much that he sent the shoes actually before I got him the tickets,” Sharpe said before confirming that he did eventually get him two tickets to the opening night game at the AFC Championship.

Afterwards, Sharpe shared the regular base colorway of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 750, Kanye West’s first shoe with Adidas.

Towards the end of the video, he said that he would one day part with the sneakers because his son doesn’t wear a size 13  shoe size.

People in the comments of his post were quick to point out the impressive collection and even wanted to know when they could get a pair.

“Let me get a pair?” someone wrote.

“Mans got the holy grail in front of him,” another added.

Someone else pointed out that the “Red October” sneakers would be his wedding shoes and wrote, “Red Octobers will be my wedding sneakers. Does that sound weird?”

Check out some other reactions below.

It’s safe to say that Sharpe has quite an extensive amount of interested buyers for his collection.

Skip and Shannon: Undisputed airs weekdays at 9:30 am ET on FOX Sports.
