Thank Yeezus.

Praise Yeezus. NFL players can finally wear Yeezy cleats on the field. 

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was the first player to sport the brand-new Yeezy 750 cleats in black during the Christmas Day game against the Kansas City Chiefs. On Monday, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott also wore the cleats in a new beige colorway. Adidas posted on its Twitter that the black version will soon be available.

According to Footwear News, previous 350 Yeezy cleats had been worn by Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins; however, the players were fined up to $6,000 because the NFL requires that the shoe be a solid color, and the 350 version features Yeezy's classic marbled base.

So far, Kanye West's cleats have had mixed luck on the field. The Cowboys beat the Lions handily over the weekend, while the Broncos were shut down by the Chiefs.
