KANYE West sent the internet into a frenzy over the weekend, and no, not because he is a self-confessed Donald Trump fan, but because of the downright bizarre choice of footwear he wore to a wedding.
West, with wife Kim Kardashian, was attending the nuptials of rapper 2Chainz to longtime girlfriend Kesha Ward, when eagle-eyed watchers noticed the Yeezy slides he was wearing looked, well, a couple of sizes too small.
While most of the wedding guests wore appropriate footwear to the wedding, which was held at the Gianni Versace mansion in Miami, West sported a pair of shoes that wouldn’t look out of place in a retirement village. Why? Because fashion.
Taking to Twitter in their droves, fans had a crack at West as they branded the shoes “too small” and inappropriate for the fancy shindig.
One fan was clearly unimpressed with the shoes, which cost a cool $200: “I’m mad that @kanyewest decided to wear slides with that suit.
“And then slides that aren’t even his size?? Like damn he looked f****** good until I saw the full photos and realised his shoes don’t even fit his feet. Mad.”
Labelling the shoes as inappropriate, another said: “WHY is @kanyewest wearing shower shoes with socks to a wedding? No #Respect.”

Say what you want, but he’s a smart guy. Now people are talking about his shoes (Yeezy Slides) that he recently introduced, but I bet they wouldn’t be if he wore the correct size. pic.twitter.com/3O4mH67j2F

It’s all good to play dress up to the nines and wear fashionable shoes. But sometimes your feet get tired and you just want to be comfortable.
You can’t deny that Kanye West looks comfy as hell in these. pic.twitter.com/reWVV1TNnw

Others hinted his shoes were too small: “First of all kanye YEEZYS ARE YOUR SHOES IT SHOULD BE NO REASON WHY YOU AINT GET THE SIZE THAT FITS YOU @kanyewest.”
“You’d think with all that #yeezy money @kanyewest would have chosen shoes that fit for such an occasion, but nah he had to take North’s on the way out.”
Another said: “Shoes always complete, or in this case, incomplete the look.”
Shoes aside, West and Kardashian looked on as 2Chainz wed longtime girlfriend Kesha Ward.
Taking to Instagram, the rapper shared a slew of snaps from the lavish affair, reports the New York Post.
“Chainz’s. #lookinlikeitrecords,” the 40-year-old hip hop star captioned a family photo on Saturday.
2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, shared a video on Sunday of the first dance with his mother. Ward was seen in a separate Instagram video walking down the aisle to John Legend’s All of Me. Lil Wayne and singer Monica Brown were also in attendance.
The New York Post previously reported the couple, who share three children, daughters Heaven and Harmony, as well as son Halo, would tie the knot in front of 75 guests at Villa Casa Casuarina, originally home to the late Gianni Versace. An insider reportedly told the New York Post the reception was held at a different location in order to accommodate more people.
2 Chainz first proposed to Ward at the BET Awards in 2013. He later popped the question on the red carpet at the annual Met Gala in May.
