Cast your minds back to 2016.Cheap thrills by Sia was topping the charts and our hearts were broken by One Direction's break up announcement.

Love Island that year featured stars Malin Andersson, Olivia Bowen and Alex Bowen – as well as the gorgeous Rykard Jenkins, remember him?

He had 'friend sex' with Olivia, before her and Alex were a thing, and while he was supposed to be courting Rachel Fenton, naughty boy.

These days, Rykard is loved-up with Siân Owen, and while the pair mainly shun the spotlight, the former Love Island star is not shy about drawing attention to his feet. You heard.

Rykard recently took to Instagram to show off a new Belvotti Milano trainers designed by ex-TOWIE star Mario Falcone, and the photo seems to have been taken by current Ex On The Beach star and former Mr Katie Price, Kris Boyson.

No, YOUR head's fallen off.

In the photo, Rykard relaxes, in a not that comfortable pose tbh, as he flashes his new daps. Writing, “The conditions were perfect to take the @belvottimilano trainers out for a spin! Go check out their full range to up your feet game this summer.@mariofalcone you smashed these designs brother they feel/look great”.

Photographer Kris (is there no ends to his talents?) joked, "Dint tag the photographer nah? Liberty!”.

While designer Mario commented, “Thank you brother ❤️”.

Ex-TOWIE heart throb Mario who designs the Italian leather trainers, often shares photos of fellow reality stars modelling them, with everyone from Vicky Pattison's fiancé Ecan Ramadan to influencer Carl Cunard bagging a pair.

And while not everyone in the comment sections loved the loafers, with one follower writing “They’re ugly”, other fans, couldn’t get enough.

One wrote “🥰🥰 my fave trainers of yours!!!!”, others were left speechless by the cool clobber and could only muster “sheesh!’ or love heart emojis.
