Just under two weeks ago saw the Miami wedding of 2 Chainz and Kesha Ward, but who would have known it was for them, with all eyes on guest Kanye West. It’s not usually good form to take away from the bride on the wedding day, but in true Ye’ style, the rapper and designer did just that – wearing a pale green suit, and slides, three sizes too small.
As expected Twitter got busy, with the main focus on how West failed to dress himself properly, with his heels well over the end of the shoe.

After a slew of comments and memes started flooding the internet, West took to Twitter on Tuesday to defend his fashion choice, proving he has a method to his madness.
“The Japanese way,” West clarified with photos that provided instructions for how to properly wear the shoes. “Your heal sould extend 1-2 cm off the back of the wooden sole,” it reads.

Followers immediately questioned his justification, with some users commenting, “He’s really trying to justify himself wearing slides too small for his feet… Interesting that it took him like two weeks to find this. I aint buyin that s–t Kanye,” another user said.
Guess that settles it, we wont be seeing the “small shoe” trend this season.
