PRESIDENT OBAMA COMPLIMENTS DWYANE WADE’S FASHION GAME
The Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder matchup made for a fashion-forward NBA Finals. Players from both sides flaunted their unique sense of style throughout the series. Post-game sartorial winners and losers received almost as much attention as the action on the hardwood. In the end, the Heat were crowned NBA champs, landing them a trip to the White House to meet with President Obama. For the team, this was another opportunity to suit up in their designer threads.
Prior to the team’s visit, Dwyane Wade took to twitter to showcase his “White House look.” The ensemble included a gray suit from Ferragamo and a shirt, patterned tie, and black and white pocket square from Tom Ford. He topped off the look with a pair of $675 Christian Louboutin “Golfito” shoes. In an effort to stand out, Wade often takes fashion risks, be it a bright pop of color or a novel accessory. This time around, the multicolored wing tip sneakers fit the bill.
In addition to highlighting the team’s accomplishments throughout the 2012 season, the President was quick to compliment Wade’s fashion game and even asked him to show off those designer kicks. Here’s what he had to say:
“We saw Dwyane Wade, the heart and soul of this team, continue to do whatever it takes to win, including leading the team in blocks. And at the post-game press conferences, he dressed well enough to land himself in GQ magazine.”
“Show them your kicks here, Dwyane. If any of you can pull this off, other than Dwyane Wade, let me know.”
