Usher performed at the Kid's Inaugural Concert at the Washington Convention Center on Saturday. The U.S. capitol is currently preparing for the second inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama, which will take place on January 21. The children's concert was a prelude and to celebrate military families. For this event, Usher wore a black biker jacket from Balenciaga, paired with leather trousers and shoes which I'm rather undecided with: the space-agey velcro hi-top sneakers from Maison Martin Margiela.

I'm thinking thank god for the red to break up the otherwise all black outfit, but it looked rather chunky and doesn't quite go with the flow. I would have picked a pair of Louboutin spiked or crystals embellished sneakers but you would say that is too predictable by my standards.

  2. They remind me of orthopaedic shoes, baad choice! Also not sold on the trousers, they don't look like they fit him.

    I DO like the leather jacket, however.

  4. I bet the shes were really nice to dance in and if your on the stage and your Usher, you need clothes that show your movements well. I like the Jacket and the shoes but not together. I feel Usher is trying to find some "skinnies" that will stretch and not rip like others he's worn. But I agree the Wil.I.am pants are not really working with this combo.
