Khama's attire divides opinion

WARRIORS’ star Khama Billiat found himself under scrutiny from the fashion police after he was pictured in a suit and wearing multi-coloured sneakers.

Social media went abuzz saying the footballer’s wardrobe had malfunctioned because the shoes did not match well with the suit.
However, fashionistas argued that the footballer’s dressing was on point as he is moving with fashion trends in the world, citing examples of other footballers among them Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar who dresses like that.

Billiat was among 27 other national team stars who were dressed by Classy Suits store 4May International on Thursday when his shoes drew all the attention leading to questions on whether he is a fashion enthusiast or a bad dresser.
Fashionista Dean Sakuni told the Daily News that the footballer was on point and moving with trends.

“He was on point. This is where global fashion trends are going. However, our people still need to be schooled in as far as fashion is concerned. We needed not to go the extra mile to point other examples such as Neymar or Ronaldo and just celebrate that one of our own is in line with fashion trends,” he said.
Some sources said he failed to get his shoes size at 4May and had to make do with what he had.

Another fashionista Ellcy Chimedza concurred with Sakuni describing the shoes as expensive and warranted attention.
“All the attention was supposed to be brought to those shoes. They are D&G and fetch over $700 a pair. This means that he can afford to buy any shoe that society may want to dictate but in that instance those shoes were on point,” she said.
Social media was blazing over the weekend with focus being placed on the shoes.

The footballer was not moved by critics and on Sunday at the stadium he was putting on his 4May suit and the sneakers. He went on to score the opening goal for the Warriors.
