Duke Ihenacho is currently in the midst of a battle with Jeron Johnson for the Redskins starting strong safety gig that will likely last throughout training camp. But that is not the only reason the 26-year old defensive back is garnering headlines this summer.
Ihenacho, who missed most of last season with a foot injury, has been proving through OTAs that his spat game may be the STRONGEST in the league. Custom tape jobs have been made to resemble classic Chuck Taylors, house slippers and now Nike flip flops
Word of Ihenacho's impressive tape has since caught the attention of the sneaker-enthusiast heavyweight website NiceKicks.com. Their Gridirion Kicks Spotlight interview & feature titled Meet The Man Behind The Leagues Most Interesting Cleats, debuted on their site yesterday afternoon. Check it out here.
FWIW, I still think the best Redskins shoe game is still, and always will be, Deion Sanders highstepping in the Jordan 11 cleats with the burgundy patent leather. I see you, Primetime.
