Geno Smith wears a Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Pure Platinum”
We are entering the fourth week of the NFL season, and it is already decisive for several teams. The Seattle Seahawks are 1-2 and can’t afford to lose to the Detroit Lions tomorrow afternoon.
If the Seahawks want to tie their record, they’ll need a big game from Geno Smith. The veteran quarterback is quiet and lets his game do the talking. However, Smith made some noise with the shoes he chose to wear during the team’s flight this week.
Thanks to the Instagram account @blitzfits, we have a great shot of Smith en route to his business trip to Detroit. The 31-year-old wears an expensive pair of shoes which were released over a decade ago. Below is everything fans need to know about Smith’s shoes.
Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Pure Platinum’
Smith wore the Nike Air Yeezy 2 in the “Pure Platinum” colorway. The shoes were released on June 9, 2012 for $250. They now have an average resale price of $7,445, according to StockX.

Before Kanye West teamed up with Adidas to create some of the most memorable sneakers of all time, the music icon worked with Nike. The technology that people used to buy these shoes back then now seems antiquated. But the hype was and still is real for these classic Yeezy shoes.
Smith isn’t the only professional athlete to wear Air Yeezy 2s. Earlier this summer, Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving wore the same pair to a WNBA game. Unfortunately, over time, these classic kicks become even rarer.
We are confident that Smith will face the Lions after wearing the boots. It’s only week four of the NFL season and Smith is in playoff mode. Stay tuned to FanNationKicks.com for more on what your favorite athletes are wearing on and off the court.
