- Somizi Mhlongo is no stranger to a bold look and used his Idols gig to show Mzansi another of his stunning and bold fashion choices

- The shoes are called the LoubiShark and are designed to look like shark teeth with the signature Louboutin red soles
In the shoe world, few are as recognisable or as widely referenced as those made by the French designer Christian Louboutin. The high-end footwear is favoured by celebrity clientele and has been a status symbol since their release in the 1990s.
It's no wonder that one of Mzansi's most fashion-conscious celebrities is a fan of the brand. Somizi debuted his latest pair of Louboutins on an episode of Idols SA and fans went gaga for Somgaga's footwear.
The shoes in question are the latest sneakers from Louboutin and have been fondly named "The LoubiShark" for their design mimicking the teeth of a shark. The pair of shoes also cost a whopping R15 000.
Fans could not get enough of the bold Idols SA look and took to social media to comment on Somizi's shoe choice:
@NombuyiMor: "Halala, shoes with the red bottom."
@sademorgan5: "Red gives you more boldness and GLAM Baby! Yaaaaas this look did it for my Fabulous One!"
mpiraidoi: "It's your sneakers for me."
@sebapu_tumelo: "I'm size six kopa pair e one ya di shoes haha."

“Judging by first day of pre order sales yesterday I'm confident that we are going to break the records... thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered and apologies to those who encountered problems... the system nearly crashed... to everyone who hasn't placed their orders, let's go, we still have a bit of time but I'd advise you do it ASAP because there's a limited number of the first batch...”
