Best of Redskins Sneakers



I ran into 32-year old Vince Terlep as we were all entering FedEx Field about an hour before kickoff on Sunday. He was wearing Redskins clothing on every square of his body, including the customized Converse All-Stars pictured above. He made them himself on Converse's "Design Your Own" site for about $60 toward the end of last season, and has been wearing them to games ever since.

"I didn't have any Redskins shoes," he explained, when I asked for his inspiration. "I had the jersey, the shirt, the pants, the underwear...."

Yeah, the underwear. He didn't have the underwear on at the time (yes, I asked), but he pointed out that his wife Tricia had HER Redskins underwear on at the time. (Yes, she showed me. Hey, if you're gonna wear 'em, you might as well show 'em off.)

Anyhow, the point is, pretty much every real Redskins fan wore some variety of Redskins shoes on Sunday. If you don't have burgundy and gold sneakers, you're basically a fake fan. It took me maybe five minutes standing around the entrance to Sections 142/242 to get this brief collection of examples.

Dan,

Were Tricia's undies traditional (full) or thongs?

Had to ask!

I have three Redskins shoes, and two of them are pictured above (the Gil Chocolate City's and the Air Force II's). The Nike Dunk SB Team Editions in burgundy and gold are a must.
