Lil Wayne at the BET’s 106 & Park New Year’s Show on Jan. 1.
We predicted last summer that Pharrell Williams, M.I.A., or one of the Jonas Brothers would be the first to wear these cuddly kicks in public. Well, we were WAY off. Designer Jeremy Scott tweeted that Lil Wayne (yes, the same LIL WAYNE with neck tattoos) was the first person to step out in the snuggly sneakers (the rapper wore them during his New Year’s Eve performance on BET’s 106 & Park). Here’s our new prediction: The $328 Adidas high-top/teddy bear slipper hybrids, which Lil Wayne teamed with jeans, a varsity jacket, a pants chain, shades, fitted cap and fingerless brown gloves, just might give Uggs a run for their money.
