Colin Kaepernick wore a red jacket and blue pants to the ESPYs

Colin Kaepernick ESPYs red suit

Now that Colin Kaepernick is becoming a big-time athlete, he’s starting to wear the type of clothes only big-time athletes can get away with.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback showed up to the ESPYs wearing a red jacket, matching red shoes, blue pants, and matching blue handkerchief in his breast pocket. The outfit also (sort of) matched the red Jaguar F type he showed up in, and it also led people to draw comparisons between him and Clipper Darrell.

The only good news is that at least Kaep’s outfit wasn’t as bad as what we’ve seen from the likes of Dwyane Wade.

“I had to do something different for the ESPYs,” Kaepernick told ESPN’s Samantha Ponder. “This is the one chance to try to show off and do something a little different, and this is what I came up with.”

As long as he’s not wearing other team’s hats, I’m sure 49ers fans won’t complain.

Here’s a close-up look at his shoes:

NaVorro Bowman: Colin Kaepernick made ‘huge mistake’ wearing Miami Dolphins hat

Colin-Kaepernick-Dolphins-hatA lot of people feel that Colin Kaepernick took too much heat for wearing a Miami Dolphins hat a couple weeks ago, but at least one of his San Francisco 49ers teammates thought the criticism was well-deserved. Linebacker NaVorro Bowman, who at age 25 is a young player in the league like Kaepernick, said it was a bonehead move.

“This is a huge mistake by Kaep,” Bowman told the NFL Network, via Around the League. “I’m sure he understands that now. In his defense, we’re young, in our era these days we like to match our snapbacks with our outfits.”

Kaepernick made no apologies for wearing the hat and even called out his fans for being upset over it. He later tried to make up for it by wearing his Niners gear loud and proud, but most fans think their quarterback wearing his own team’s colors should be a given.

“The hats now these days are very important to the outfit, so Kaep I understand what you did, but let’s stay away from the NFL teams,” Bowman added. “Stick to NBA, go to college or the baseball hats.”

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, who appeared on the same “NFL Total Access” segment, said the general rule is “you stick to baseball or hockey or whatever” to avoid meaningless controversies like this one. The Miami Marlins may stink, but their colors are similar to the Dolphins’ colors. Marlins gear would match Kaepernick’s outfits just the same, and it probably wouldn’t infuriate his fans.

No harm, no foul, as they say. Just don’t do it again, Colin. Even your own teammates realize how much of a no-no that is.

A few days after upsetting San Francisco 49ers fans by wearing a Miami Dolphins hat at a 4th of July party, Colin Kaepernick seemingly made amends.

Kaepernick tweeted that he was a in a “Golden State of Mind” and shared a picture of himself wearing a 49ers hat and red tank top that says “the Golden State” in 49ers writing.

Do you accept his apology, Niners fans?

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was seen partying on July 4 wearing a Miami Dolphins hat. Naturally, Kaepernick wearing an opposing team’s hat led to scrutiny and complaints from fans.

Though most players would apologize and beg the fans for forgiveness, Kaep took a different approach. The quarterback responded to the backlash with an Instagram posting that included the photo below and this note:

Colin Kaepernick throws 87-mph first pitch at Giants game (Video)

Colin Kaepernick is just showing off at this point.

As if being one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL wasn’t already enough, Kaepernick had to go out and show everyone that he might just be the best baseball player in the league, too.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the San Franciso Giants-Miami Marlins game on Friday and, according to the Giants, his pitch was clocked at 87 mph. Bay Area Sports Guy recorded and posted video of the pitch, which you can see at the top.

Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo caught Kaepernick’s delivery and didn’t even have any gear on despite the fireball unleashed by Kaep. The two later posed for a picture:

Colin Kaepernick has a pretty ridiculous shoe collection

Colin Kaepernick shoe collection

You think Colin Kaepernick has enough shoes? The San Francisco 49ers star quarterback shared these photos of his sneaker collection on Instagram Thursday and, as you can see, his collection is pretty extensive.

Based on what he shared in the photos, a rough estimate says he has about 100 pairs of shoes. Kaep has a nice mix of casual shoes, boots, Jordans, cross trainers, and basketball shoes, not to mention kicks in about every color imaginable.

Pictures like these should come attached with a warning. Attention fans: do not try this at home, you could go broke.

You know what the funny thing is? Like they said in “Funny People,” the more money you have, the more free stuff they give you. That’s probably how Kaepernick was able to build part of his collection. Still, the man has a long way to go before he reaches Nate Burleson status.

Colin Kaepernick teaches Michelle Obama the art of Kaepernicking (Picture)

Colin-Kaepernick-Michelle-Obama-Kaepernicking

Colin Kaepernick and First Lady Michelle Obama have teamed up to help promote physical education in schools with a campaign called “Let’s Move.” Kaepernick is one of a number of athletes including Serena Williams who have visited schools around the country this year as part of the movement. On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers star hung out with Obama and taught her his patented move.

Kaepernick posted a photo on his Instagram account of he and the first lady Kaepernicking together. As you know, Kaepernicking was one of many social media trends that began during the 2012 NFL season when Kaepernick first became a rising star.

While it’s pretty cool that Kaepernick got to hang out with Michelle Obama and it’s great what they are doing together, I want to see the First Lady try her hand at Dufnering. That remains — and probably will always remain — my favorite of the trends.
