Like every politician, Harris is usually seen wearing very professional and formal attire. However, onlookers caught a glimpse of her in a casual outfit, and a protective face mask, this week. Harris arrived in Milwaukee as she continues her campaign trail and she disembarked a plane wearing some classic Chuck Taylors.

In a recent interview, Harris revealed that she actually has a large collection of Converse. She has pairs for every weather condition and various different outfits including a good pantsuit.

“I run through airports in my Converse sneakers,” 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.”

Of course, the internet had some opinions on Harris’ footwear choice. For many, they think its refreshing to see a female politician wear something other than high heels. As well, other onlookers think Harris’ love for Chuck Taylors is “badass” and that she “rocks the ever living fuck out of” the classic shoes.

Others, including Harris’ sister, point out that she has previously worn Converse on the campaign trail.

Harris is currently in Milwaukee to meet with Black business owners and union workers. Her latest campaign appearance comes just days after the Kamala-Biden campaign launched new merch on the Nintendo game Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
