90 Day Fiancé fans come for Usman after spotting his footwear faux pas on Happily Ever After. Sojaboy thinks his style is fresh, but viewers disagree.
On a recent episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? viewers got a good look at Usman Umar’s footwear, and they couldn’t believe that “international superstar” Sojaboy would wear something so laughably lame. Though Usman has appeared in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise several times, his current love interest (or at least potential love interest) is Kimberly Menzies, and on Happily Ever After? season 7, the two are progressing their relationship. Though the couple isn’t seeing eye-to-eye on the topic of Usman taking multiple wives, Kim and Usman still enjoy spending time together and sat down for a lunch of pepper catfish on a recent episode.
During their meal, Kim and Usman had a productive conversation about their relationship, but fans were distracted by the questionable sandals Usman had on his feet. In a Reddit thread started by user celine-star, fans couldn’t resist cracking jokes about Usman’s odd choice of footwear—especially since he views himself as a rap superstar with swagger to spare. Commenters joked about the shoes being “Air Usmans” and compared them to “old man orthopedic sandals.” Though some 90 Day Fiancé fans were quick to crack wise about the shoes being “the new Yeezys!,” some fans were initially concerned, as the sneakers-turned-sandals also looked like foot casts at first glance. “I thought he had 2 broken feet….then realized they were just sandal sneakers?” another commenter admitted.
Usman Umar’s Shoes On Happily Ever After Stole Show
Surprisingly, one fan was able to track down the widely-derided shoes. The unpopular kicks are available for just over 60 dollars and are described on the Tech Wear Club website as “Futuristic Cyberpunk Buckle Sandals.” It’s almost surprising that Usman’s footwear are a legit pair of shoes and not some sort of jerry-rigged sandal fused with a sneaker that Usman concocted himself. While most fans in the Reddit thread made lighthearted jokes about the shoes, some speculated about the shoes’ origin. “A gift from Kimbally,” a commenter theorized. “She tricked him into believing they are new [sic] trend. Anything to keep those potential sister wives away.”
Because 90 Day Fiancé stars are on TV, their style and appearance are often closely scrutinized. Many fans have strong opinions about what cast members wear, and sometimes come hard for show alum who take fashion risks. Usman’s shoes are certainly a choice, but he’s not the only one to think outside the box when it comes to their style. Jibri Bell of 90 Day Fiancé season 9 was regularly criticized for his flamboyant outfits, sometimes even by fellow castmates. Patrick Mendes’ brother John Mendes famously called Jibri “sparkles” on the season 9 Tell All, and the name has stuck ever since. Now Usman is the target of the 90 Day Fiancé fashion police, and he’s been read to filth for his unconventional footwear.
As a self-proclaimed superstar rapper, Usman probably thinks highly of his personal style. So 90 Day Fiancé fans’ recent criticism of his sneaker game may cut deep. Though viewers have a lot of opinions about what Usman puts on his feet, the choice is ultimately up to him. Perhaps he just wanted that sneaker feel while letting his feet breathe, and felt that the “Futuristic Cyberpunk Buckle Sandals” were the best option. In any case, Sojaboy’s dressed-up foot brace look hasn’t made Kim love Usman any less.
