PLAYERS: Ryan Lochte
Ryan Lochte is into fashion and a self-proclaimed shoe collector. When he steps onto the deck before a swim, he likes to make a statement with his clothes. And as you can tell by his winged shoes seen above, he frequently succeeds with his mission. “Ho, I think I have about, a total of 130 pairs of shoes,” Lochte told The New York Times. “So you can say I like shoes.” Lochte is disappointed that he has to stick to the Team USA uniform at the Olympics, but he told the Times he would try to accessorize with bracelets and diamond grillz. He also told The New York Times he wants to be a clothing designer. “I want to be different, and fashion gives me that outlet to do that,” said Lochte. The winged shoes are a little too flashy and clunky for me to wear, but I like the way they look.
