Dwyane Wade Paints His Toenails

by October 28, 2011

Dwyane Wade talks to GQ about the evolution of his personal style, and reveals that he paints his toenails black. Do with this information what you will: “His style especially has grown more experimental, flamboyant even. Still, I never saw this revelation coming: ‘Three years ago I was like, ‘Man, I kind of want to paint my toenails black,’ Wade tells me. We’re on-set at a Manhattan photo studio right now his feet are covered by striped Paul Smith socks and size 14 Jordans. ‘At first I thought, ‘Nah, I can’t do that. They’re going to kill me.’ But eventually I decided to try it.’ He went to Miami’s Mondrian hotel and asked a shocked pedicurist to give him the Marilyn Manson treatment. ‘Later I was on vacation in the Bahamas with LeBron,’ Wade says, laughing, ‘and when he saw my toes he was like, ‘Something is seriously wrong with you.’ But eventually Bron was like, ‘You know what? You’re crazy, but that’s just you.’ When I first got into the league, I tried to fit in. Now I don’t care.'”
