“My mom asked where she could get her pair,” Newton told INSIDE EDITION during Super Bowl 50's media night.
His family wasn't the only group that was curious about the pants, as the Twitterverse exploded when photos of the fashionable black and white bottoms hit the Internet.

While Newton’s pants– which run $850 and were part of Versace's Spring 2014 collection– were the topic of conversation, his Super Bowl rival, Peyton Manning was mobbed with reporters for another reason when he attended media day.
At 39, Manning is the oldest quarterback in Super Bowl history. Sunday will be the second time he has led his Denver Broncos to the big game.
“I’m honored to be a part of it,” he said of the opportunity to IE.
Manning said that he believed everyone came out unscathed after the Broncos' team bus was involved in a minor accident after Monday’s practice.
“As far as I know, yeah. Just a typical bus wreck on way back from practice,” he said.
According to reports, the team was traveling on two buses that collided with each other. No one from the team was hurt.
One of buses involved sustained front-end damage, including a shattered windshield. The damaged bus could not be driven back to the hotel, forcing those on board to take other transportation back.
