The "Gold Digger" rapper and his wife, Kim Kardashian, attended the Miami nuptials between 2 Chainz and Kesha Ward earlier this month. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wore a neon green dress—a shade she'd been rocking all week—while her husband donned a mint green suit. However, it was his footwear that raised a few eyebrows. Not only did the Yeezy head rock a sock and sandal combination, but he also wore shoes that appeared to be a few sizes too small.
But on Tuesday, West explained he had actually been wearing his sandals "the Japanese way." He also tweeted pictures of what appear to be a version of the traditional Japanese shoe, the geta.
"The straps should be snug but not too tight between the two toes," part of the illustration read. It also stated, "Your heal [should] extend 1 [to] 2 [centimeters] off the back of the wooden sole."
