Bad Bunny Styles ‘Ugly’ Slides And Black Pants At Carbone In NYC – Footwear News
Ahead of his performance at the VMAs, Bad Bunny went to dinner at Carbone in New York on Friday. The Puerto Rican rapper hit the city streets in an all-black ensemble and polarizing shoes.
Going virtually incognito, Bunny hid her face behind chunky black sunglasses and a gray and pink satin scarf. Nonetheless, the “Me Porto Bonito” singer wore a plain black oversized crewneck, which he paired with equally wide pleated pants. Layered over the bling, Bunny wore sparkling diamond chain necklaces and accessorized with pearls strung through her breaded black locks.
Keeping the vibe casual, the “Bullet Train” actor slipped into chunky beige Yeezy slides, the puffy shoes paired with white socks. The distinct shoe is certainly controversial for its looks, dividing many. One thing is certain, the slides are comfortable, providing Bunny with ample support as he frolics through the “Big Apple”.
“Ugly” slides are marked by wide straps and thick construction, often prioritizing comfort and foot support over popular trends that don’t emphasize practicality. Contrary to their name, “ugly” slides are actually an oddly stylish choice of modern footwear, worn by celebrities and fashion influencers. Rated “ugly slides” include Kanye West’s wildly popular Birkenstocks and Adidas Yeezy slides.
Speaking of Adidas, Bunny collaborated with the global brand to create a shoe inspired by the rapper’s roots. The reggaeton singer’s new style Forum Buckle Low features a multi-colored leather upper, padded heel counters and trim. The pair’s signature buckled canvas straps, flat soles and opaque rubber outsoles complete its silhouette. The upcoming “Blue Tint” colorway features many light and tonal shades of blue, directly inspired by both the open, inviting summer skies of Puerto Rico and the open-minded nature of Bad Bunny – as showcased in its campaign. featuring the rapper. The sneakers were released worldwide today August 27, 2022 and retail for $160.
