Gabrielle Union dishes on Dwyane Wade’s love of ‘manny packs’ (vid)

Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade has cultivated the status of being among the most fashion-forward players in the NBA. Some may even argue his eclectic and sometimes eccentric sense of style is borderline over-the-top. And we can count Wade’s wife Gabrielle Union among those in that camp, at least insofar as it relates to her hubby’s fondness for “manny packs.”

Union, who never shies away from sharing interesting things about her hubby (here and here), was making an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show Wednesday when she dished on how Wade’s affinity for “manny packs” may be a bit too much.

“He loves it in a way that is a little uncomfortable,” Union told O’Brien, via the Chicago Tribune. “Once he started wearing them, people just kept sending them. He actually has one that they airbrushed ‘murse,’ like ‘man purse.'”


O’Brien brought up the topic after showcasing a photo of the supercouple vacationing in which Wade is proudly rocking his murse or manny pack or what have you.

Suffice to say, the manny pack may not be for everyone, but for Wade, it’s something he cannot live without, even though most guys likely would be mocked and ridiculed for trying to pull such a look.
