When rapper Lil Wayne performed on the BET Awards last week, many marveled at his studded shoes. It seems the shimmery stunners were made specifically for Lil Wayne by CLVII.

The crystal-studded Supra Skytops were a birthday present to Lil Wayne, and featured 26 on one shoe tongue (his age), and CLVII on the other. The crystal studded shoes definitely aren’t made for daily wear, but sure do sparkle on stage!

Implications - At such a young age, Lil Wayne's impact on the pop culture discourse is already almost legendary. These custom fitted Supra Skytops only serves to enhance that image. From the BET Awards to the fantasies of millions. All in a day's work for Weezy.
