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.
Our Veep-to-be in Chuck Taylors
— Jeff Matthews MD (@JBMatthews) September 7, 2020
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.

Those are definitely Chuck Taylors.
Bringing some style back to the WH.
Mike Pence is only allowed to wear what Mother permits.

Some pretty compelling evidence that the United States is getting a baddass VP who struts her stuff wearing Chuck Taylors and would have Pence eating through a straw after the debate 👇 https://t.co/1dNQpQQZjt

Not a fan of Kamala but I do appreciate her rocking some Chuck Taylors. Would love to see politicians express themselves through clothing and fashion. Would instantly make them more personable. https://t.co/IO2CIUoICE

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

The fact Chuck Taylor is trending on this app is proof folks didn’t pay attention to Kamala’ s campaign man.

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.
