Today on the Twitter machine I saw “Chuck Taylors” trending and just knew it’d about Kamala.

Doug Emhoff @DouglasEmhoff · Sep 7 The @KamalaHarris I know wears Chucks and jeans...and now you all know too! https://twitter.com/i/status/1303001456803483648 Tyler Pager @tylerpager · Sep 7 Kamala Harris arrives in Milwaukee for her first trip as the Democratic vice presidential nominee. She will be meeting with unions and business leaders this afternoon. 5.4M views 0:01 / 0:08 The comments about her Chucks were mostly fun, supportive, and kind.

She had just toured Mack’s Apples in Derry, NH. Heels in an apple orchard? Nope!

The Guardian did an in-depth look. Ricky Altamirano @RickyAlta · Sep 7 .⁦ @KamalaHarris ⁩ walks off a plane in her classic black low top Chuck Taylors and Chucks begin trending on Twitter. Here is the meaning behind her shoe choices. I didn’t know I could love her more than I already do #BidenHarris2020 ⁦ @Converse ⁩ Kamala Harris: what her sneakers mean As a woman of colour wearing sneakers on the campaign, it semaphores a change in political dress and much more theguardian.com Kamala Harris’s nomination as Joe Biden’s running mate is historic: the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, she is the first woman of colour to be on a major party’s presidential ticket. She is also the first to prominently wear sneakers on the campaign trail. Harris’s preference for non-traditional footwear was first seen last year when she was a Democratic presidential hopeful, and appeared in Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. As she told The Cut: “I run through airports in my Converse sneakers. 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.” Women’s fashion choices are seldom a fair topic. While others may seek the deeper meanings behind sneakers, my Chucks wearing daughter said it simply: “Heels all day? We don’t have to do that anymore!” What we do have to do is VOTE!
