HOOVER, Ala. — Dan Mullen has become quite the shoe salesman for Adidas.
For the second consecutive year, the Mississippi State coach wore one of the trendiest pairs of shoes on the market to SEC Media Days.
On Tuesday, Mullen arrived in Hoover wearing a pair of Yeezy Boost 750, which is an Adidas shoe designed by Kanye West.
“I got the Yeezy boosts on today. The new 750s on. They are pretty swagged up right now,” Mullen said when addressing the media. “I didn’t get Kanye to sign them though unfortunately. You got to have fun and wear good shoes and have a good time while you’re doing it. I have my Jimmy Buffett socks on underneath to kind of balance out the Kanye shoes.”
And the Bulldogs coach was not shy about showing them off:
