Redskins safety tapes cleats to look like slippers (Photo)

Cleats are typically cleats. Except when they’re not.  And you have Duke Ihenacho to thank.

The Redskins safety, as you can see below, taped his cleats during Thursday’s minicamp practice to resemble comfy-looking “house slippers,” as he calls them.

Other times, Ihenacho feels like rocking old school Chuck Taylors on the field.

This is clearly Ihenacho’s world; we’re all just living in it.
