Marshawn Lynch's shoes sweet, and expensive
Posted by Danny O'Neil
You could say that. The cleats Marshawn Lynch wore on Saturday, a customized version of the Nike Vapor Talon Elite.
The shoes were given to Lynch, but they weren't free.
Not when you consider he was fined $10,000 by the league for violating the league's uniform policy. A league spokesman confirmed the fine, saying the higher amount was due to it being a second violation. Lynch earlier wore green socks for the team's Monday night game against St. Louis. That violation cost Lynch $5,000.
Lynch's affection for Skittles has become a signature of sorts. He's known to snack on the candy after touchdowns, something that dates back to high school when his mother would give him candy. In the past two home games, packages of Skittles have been thrown toward the end zone when he scores.
