Texans' DeAndre Hopkins says he was fined for wearing Yeezy cleats

DeAndre Hopkins' Yeezy cleats just got a lot more expensive.

The Houston Texans wide receiver said Thursday he was fined $6,000 by the NFL for wearing the cleats in a Week 1 win against the Chicago Bears. The shoes, which retail for $250, are designed by rapper Kanye West for Adidas. Hopkins also has a partnership with the shoe company.

Hopkins told reporters he would be retiring the cleats from game action, adding that he would wear them again "only if Kanye wants to pay the fine."

Denver Broncos linebacker Von MillerMinnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins also wore the cleats in Week 1.

The Texans face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2.
