It’s no secret that Justin Bieber has quite the shoe collection. The pop superstar is constantly stepping out in highly-coveted Yeezys and Nikes, but he’s also known to reach for more affordable styles by Vans and Converse.
However, when Bieber stepped out yesterday for church, as well as a friend’s birthday party, he was rocking a pair of Vans sneakers we seldom see him wearing — the Sk8-Hi inspired by the brand’s classic Old Skool.
The “Love Yourself” crooner styled the leather high-tops with a black Baja East fall ’18 “Thriving and Surviving Tour” hoodie and matching cropped pants, which showed off vibrant purple and red Vetements x Reebok socks. Though the cropped pants trend, often worn without socks, has been trending among men in the past few years, Bieber’s treatment created a quirky silhouette that made him look slightly taller, but in an unflattering way.
Bieber’s cropped trousers with flared cuffs is a look that can be executed well with socks, but styled in a manner like he did — with the socks rolled down low — it made him look “like a school boy who has outgrown his clothes,” according to a men’s fashion tutorial by alternation specialists The Fitting Room. Paired with a long top that added length to his torso, it certainly didn’t help matters.
The 25-year-old Canadian, who topped off his look with a hat from Huf Worldwide, has been seen in various Vans Authentic and slip-on styles.
Longtime pale, Jaden Smith — who wore his go-to futuristic Louis Vuitton sneakers in black with a custom denim ensemble — embraced the pop star with a hug from outside of their friend’s party.
