US Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris has revealed why she love wearing Chucks and her husband, Doug Emhoff also backed her up.
The politician and her husband were grilled by Jane Pauley on “Sunday Morning” about her penchant for Converse Chucks.
During the campaign she wore them a lot but she chose something more formal for the interview and when asked about the wears, Harris said it was not just something she started wearing on the campaign or, for that matter, on the cover of Vogue that it has been part of her life.
“[Converse are] my casual go-to. You know, I grew up with Chucks. I just love them. They’re comfortable.”
Doug joked she has “several closets full of them” (“He’s exaggerating,” Kamala responded) and she didn’t start wearing the shoes on the campaign trail. “When I met her, it was Chucks and jeans,” he said.
She also wore the snicker in her February Vogue cover which was released last weekend, her husband said; “People ask me all the time, like, ‘What’s she really like?’ I said, ‘She’s shockingly normal.’ I think that is really an extension of who she really is.”
