After announcing his hiatus from music just a few days prior, Justin Bieber was recently questioned by police for his choice of footwear.

The Canadian superstar was sporting a pair of $600USD Off-White™ x Nike Air Max 90 “Desert Ore” when the police stopped him, thinking that Off-White™ cable tie looping through the laces was a security tag.

After the incident, Bieber jokingly blamed the Off-White™ mastermind Virgil Abloh for the mishap. “Virgil, my God, bro, you’re freaking killing me man,” he shared on IG Stories. “Just had a cop come up to me and ask why I still have this security tag on my shoe. I had to tell him, ‘Bro, it’s just fashion, I don’t know.’” Biebs was driving his $500,000 USD Lamborghini when he was questioned. Check out Bieber’s story below.

The Off-White™ x Nike Air Max 90 “Desert Ore” are part of Abloh’s latest collab with Nike. Bieber has also made the jump into fashion with his inaugural line Drew House.
