Redskins safety Duke Ihenacho was the most fashionable player on the field Thursday at Redskins Park for the team’s voluntary offseason workouts.
Ihenacho taped over his cleats with black and white tape to make them look like a pair of Converse Chuck Taylors.

Ihenacho, who admitted Thursday’s tape job was a little sloppy, has had some practice turning his cleats into Chuck Taylor look-alikes.
From a 2013 training camp story by USA Today’s Lindsay H. Jones when Ihenacho was with the Broncos:
He celebrated athletic plays on the scout team and in individual drills, and spiced up his practice uniform once a week for what Ihenacho dubbed “Flashy Fridays.” Recently at training camp, he spent 20 minutes using black and white athletic tape to make his Nike cleats look like a pair of Chuck Taylor high tops.
“You can’t do that if you’re not playing right,” Champ Bailey said. “We like that energy about him.”
