Kamala Harris has been slammed for copying Melania Trump’s style by wearing Timberland boots to visit the devastation of the California wildfires this week.  

The Democratic Vice President candidate and Governor Gavin Newsom walked through the wreckage of the Creek Fire and toured a Red Cross evacuation center on Tuesday.

As Harris talked about the impact of climate change on the wildfires, she caught the attention of social media users for her $140 footwear.

She sported Timberland boots with a white shirt, green jacket and jeans. The First Lady wore Timberland boots in 2018 during a trip to the Al Asad Air Base to visit American troops in Iraq.

Melania Trump has faced intense scrutiny for her fashion choices.

She was eviscerated for wearing ‘storm stiletto’ high heels during a visit to tour the damage in Houston, Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

She also sparked outrage in June 2018 for wearing a Zara jacket with the phrase, ‘I really don’t care, do u?’ while visiting detention centers holding migrant children at the border in Texas.

Melania has been heavily criticized for some of her fashion choices. In June 2018 she sparked outrage for wearing a Zara jacket with the phrase, ‘I really don’t care, do u?’ while visiting detention centers holding migrant children at the border in Texas

She wore that after President Donald Trump signed an executive order to separate migrant children from their families at the border.  

However many also praised Harris for her look and the footwear which gained popularity in the 90s with the New York rap scene worn by the likes of Tupac, Aaliyah, Wu-Tang Clan and rapped about by the Notorious B.I.G.

Meena Harris, Kamaka’s niece shared a video of Harris dismounting the plane Tuesday in California with the caption: ‘THE TIMBS THO’. 

‘The @KamalaHarris de-planing videos & her completely appropriate self-confidence every time are quickly becoming one of my favorite things about this campaign,’ one Twitter user added.

‘Kamala Harris in California being Vice Presidential with her Timberlands,’ another added.

Social media users speculated that Harris brought out the Timberlands in an satorial campaign to appear more casual and approachable with voters.
