NBA star Dwyane Wade catches quite a bit of flak for his rather interesting fashion choices, but he wants to make it clear that he doesn’t care if people enjoy making fun of his outfits on social media.
The athlete has thick skin, so he doesn’t mind people not really feeling his style.
He tells Ocean Drive:
“I’m glad I’m not that guy who cares about people’s reactions. I’m always in some moment in fashion that’s controversial because I push the boundaries or I’m comfortable doing things that people might not understand. I get a kick out of people’s reactions. I go on Instagram. I like photos that I think are funny, because I’m in on the joke.
“We are in a world today where freedom of expression is okay. It’s okay to be who you are in today’s society. I tell my kids that we are in a different time, so anyone who is still back in the early 2000s, y’all need to catch up. I’m all about freedom of expression and doing what you are comfortable with. I just try to do what I’m comfortable with and if it’s pushing boundaries, if it’s pushing through a door, then I’m all for it.”
While D Wade isn’t feeling boundaries when it comes to his fashion, he does understand that it’s important he keeps boundaries in place when it comes to his family life.
