Apparently Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte loves Yeezys so much, he decided to name his dog after them.
The five-time Olympic gold medalist has been sharing photos of his new French Bulldog pup that he adopted earlier this week. It’s easy to see why the name came so naturally to Lochte: The dog is practically the same color as Lochte’s pair of tan Yeezy Boost 350s.
“He named himself ‘Yeezy,’ ” Lochte wrote. According to his posts, Yeezy is already getting along well with Lochte’s other dog, Carter.
It seems Lochte has several pairs of Yeezys in his closet, including the original Turtle Dove colorway and a black pair.

Lochte, who will head to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro this summer, debuted Team USA’s Ralph Lauren uniforms and boat shoes for the closing ceremonies on the “Today” show last month.
