When Kamala Harris ends up being Vice President on Inauguration Day, she’s going to achieve a great deal of firsts– including being the first office-holder to use Converse tennis shoes while achieving her VP tasks. Throughout an interview on CBS Sunday Early Morning, Kamala talked about her long-lasting love for “Chucks” which her husband, Doug Emhoff, gladly backed-up.
“[Converse are] just my casual go-to,” Kamala described. Doug joked she had “several closets full of them” (” He’s overemphasizing,” Kamala reacted) and she didn’t start wearing the shoes on the project trail.
Undoubtedly, Kamala’s Reverse connection has actually followed her all the method to the White Home, including her February Vogue cover which was released last weekend. For Doug, the tennis shoes are an extension of his wife’s “down to earth” character. “Individuals ask me all the time, like, ‘What’s she actually like?’ I said she’s shockingly normal,” he said. “I think that is really an extension of who she truly is.”
