Written by Vibe Houston Staff on September 10, 2020
Senator Kamala Harris made history as the first African American woman to be a vice-presidential nominee, but she may be making herstory for her shoe choices.
During a recent campaign stop in Wisconsin, Harris, who wore a navy blue blazer, skinny jeans and Chuck Taylors sent the Twitterverse into a frenzy.
The Vice-presidential hopeful was trending on Twitter for 4 hours and the video of her arriving in Wisconsin in the pair of CT’s has received more than 8 million views.
Harris isn’t shy when it comes to her love of street fashion.
In a 2018 interview with The Cut, Harris said, “I have a whole collection of Chuck Taylors: a black leather pair, a white pair, I have the kind that don’t lace, the kind that do lace, the kind I wear in the hot weather, the kind I wear in the cold weather, and the platform kind for when I’m wearing a pantsuit.”
Unfortunately for all of the Converse fans looking to snag the latest fall sneaker release, the iconic sneakers are now on backorder.
