There are two kinds of fashion no-nos that go without saying at a wedding: arriving in a wedding gown when you’re not the bride, and turning up in socks and slippers.
Social media users had a kick out of seeing images of rapper Kanye West and his reality star wife, Kim Kardashian, at 2 Chainz’s wedding. This time, however, it wasn’t the Kardashian that stole the limelight, despite the fact that she was wearing a neon green dress.
What truly amused the internet was that West had arrived at the wedding in a sage green Louis Vuitton suit, no shirt… and velcroed YEEZY slides that were at least one size too small. To stay covered up, he paired the slippers with socks.
“Kanye West’s slides… look like the same slides my Momma wears for ankle problems,” tweeted user ‘Somestupid_shit’.
“I had a friend who said you can tell a lot about a man by the shoes he’s wearing,” recalled ‘dragonflyy1004’. “Tassels or leather slide on shoes means he’s wealthy and takes care of himself. Never really bought into it until now.”
Jokes aside, some deduced that the fashion faux pas was part of a business plan that West executed to get people talking about his brand’s new slides.
“Say what you want, but he’s a smart guy,” said Twitter user Joe Dillard. “Now people are talking about his shoes… that he recently introduced, but I bet they wouldn’t be if he wore the correct size.”
There’s the, “I just rolled out of bed look,” and then there’s Kanye West. Do you think this look could be the new Crocs?
