Melania's Shoes were all the RAGE in Texas


The media and a lot of social media people have had a lot to say about Melania Trump's stilettos while visiting Texas with her husband.

Melania's Shoes were all the RAGE in Texas

I'm wondering why could this possibly be!

Is the most important thing now fashion choices while supporting the Texans or is it to actually support them - financially, with man-power, and just emotionally...?

Melania's Shoes were all the RAGE in Texas

Why is it so important what Melania wears? Isn't it more important what she does?

Melania's Shoes were all the RAGE in Texas

She showed support and that's all people should care about. . .


She did change shoes once she got there...

    It's silly. But at the same time when people are losing their livelihoods, homes and dreams, a show of support should have been taken more seriously by the First Lady. Wearing something so inappropriate just shows where her mind is: fashion.
    She didn't wear them for comfort, thats obvious. She didn't wear them for practicality obviously. She wore them to look and feel good. Considering her mind should be on the tragedy and not on looking hot, it's kinda insulting to those she is apparently showing support to.
    Is this still revelant?

      Notice trumps boots. Probably the first time that wimp ever wore boots in his life.
      Why is he wearing boots? You can be sure he won't be pulling biddies from the mud. It's because smartly his "handlers" realize the image he project so important to these people. An image of roll up the sleeves and give a hand.
      She on the other hand basically shows a flippant attitude to the situation. Would it have been ok for her to wear a evening gown?
      Or do you dress for the task? At least project the image.

    Let them wear Loubouton's.

    But seriously, I seem to recall when Obama was persecuted for wearing a tan suit and conservatives said it was an impeachable offense. Or when Michelle wore a sleeveless dress. "Liberals will complain about everything." Hmm. Right.
  • Girly1710
    I agree it's not bad at all. That's her style. If she had shown up in water repellent footwear people would be enraged that the "presidency has changed her and omg women shouldn't have to change just cuz of their husband's job" right? Like people will literally always be mad.
  • madhatters4
    i think it's just the matter that it seems so impractical to go into a natural disaster with such high heeled shoes

    the reality is we have a 24hour news cycle, so that means outlets are desperate for news to get clicks, eye balls, etc. and fashion matters can attract people who have no concerns regarding politics.

    the news outlets that really report news didn't report on this. mostly the tabs and what i'd call quasi news outlets reported or made a big deal of this
  • MarkRet
    The media likes to make a big deal out of every stupid little thing. If she were wearing shitkickers, they'd probably comment on that, too. On the other hand, if Trump were wearing a sponge-bob tie while talking with Putin, that wouldn't go down well either.
  • Paris13
    Big Deal, she got OFF of the Plane to Fly Over to Help the Hurricane Victims, with Sneakers, hat, white shirt and a pair of Slacks. Did any of them do this Here, dear? NO.
    I wish the Cold Hear-ted Media would focus More on Having a Heart from the Start, Maybe their Ratings, Unlike Fox5, would Not be in the Toilet Bowl, floating like the Poor over in Texas and Soon, as well, by Irked Irma. xx
  • HereToProveMyPoint
    I think this is ridiculous. She's free to wear what she wants! And as you say, she changed shoes later on, so obviously she realised she'd need to prioritise practicality in some situations. I totally agree that there are more important issues to focus on!
  • psm357
    Omg I cannot understand. I am from an Asian country, I just don't get it, why will people get obsessed over what the first lady of America is wearing? She is a human like all of us.
  • ATuairiscean
    It is more a PR problem than anything - It should have been more thought out - In this constant attention media world, their team should have been aware how it would be represented - Absolutely harmless yes but don't give them the opportunity for "First couple shares bucket of fried chicken on way to famine zone" type headlines.
  • Phoenix98
    I don't know what everyone is getting so pissed about Michelle Obama literally did the same thing as Melania did and both Michelle and Melania also changed into work shoes as soon as they were off the plane and into the areas that were damaged.

    I don't agree with you on anything but I can agree with you on this it is more important what she does in Texas not what she is wearing, but for the people that it does matter to she did change into work appropriate shoes.
  • Wolframium
    OMG: Do really people care about what shoes she wearing? In middle of news about hurricane? Seriously? OK, we are fucked, Kim, please, nuke USA, since… Listen, they got their chance, but this is just…nope.
    I’m looking at the image on top, and I telling myself, that house is on fire, there is water on the streets… Insane. Climate change, it’s real.
  • mamamai
    I am not for Trump, but damn some people are criticizing him and his wife for some stupid shit. Who cares what she wears, she can wear a chicken costume for all I care. At least they both went to show support.
  • Dargil
    Changed into sneakers on the plane.
    She's hot (for guys) and both mature and gorgeous (for girls) and her style appeals to most people except for haters. Nothing can please them.
  • Nate1941
    Coming from someone who was affected by hurricane Harvey, I can tell you that it is nbd. It's not like she was there to do any manual labor.
    I appreciate that she made the effort to support us during this time and appear presentable while doing so.
  • Yayeet
    It's just complaining for the sake of complaining. Liberals will complain about anything she will do, just like conservatives would have complained if Michelle Obama would have worn rain boots with the excuse that it's not classy or whatever.

    The point of these people is complaining, they don't care about the good someone is doing.
    • Rissyanne

      Conservatives never crucified Michelle like they do Melania.

    • I agree. Remember all the shit the conservative press used to say about Michelle Obama, how she "looked like a male transexual" or like a "gorilla?" Haters gonna hate.

    • Rissyanne

      Conservatives never ever went after the Obamas they way liberals has going after the Trumps. Anyone with half a brain would know that. Or a liberal... same thing.

    I find in some cases people can find it easier to focus on something negative than the positive. If she chose to wear them it's her prerogative. There are much more important issues to focus on, such as the relief Texas is going to need.
  • Rissyanne
    It's idiot liberals that are making an issue out of her shoes.
  • thinkLancer
    I love stilettos! I don't see the problem here. In fact, i think she's role modelling that stilettos are more versatile and practical than people think.
    Good on 'ya Melania!
  • parvulus
    Who gives a fuck what she wears. Anyone should be able to wear whatever they want. If someone wants to wear silhouettes during a flood than kudos to them.
  • pretty-kitty
    The sad thing isn't that the media talks about this it's that there are people who actually want to hear about it, if there wasn't then it wouldn't even be mentioned. We live in a crappy world.
  • VirginiaBeachBum
    There are far more substantive things to express outrage over with this administration than footwear choice.
  • MrMysteryMan
    The media should focus on what matters more and not try and drum up more bullshit about situations. It's like they TRY to stir up shit for news.
  • MackFreeze
    Its just shoes, why does this matter? She wasn't going there to salvage through the rummage. Why do her shoes matter
    • Rissyanne

      Because liberals will find anything to whine about.

    • MackFreeze

      @Rissyanne Man, that is irritating. I feel ya, just need something to complain about...

  • TripleAce
    The media is cancer to society... they just constantly pump out bullshit
  • GoodGuyBreakingBad
    Very well written MyTake of yours. Yes i agree it makes no difference
    what shoes she wears as long as she's there to support Texas and
    it's natural disaster. Thanks for sharing this with us.
  • DeeperMeaning
    People are really more concerned with the kind of shoes she wore and not the fact that people are dying, or in severe danger?
  • Personontheinternet
    Why should people focus on what she's wearing when there are far more important matters going on in the country.
  • the-mad-german
    well everything Trump or his Family do is wrong on Nothing But Crap (NBC) or Complete Nonsense Network (CNN)

    ... liberal lunatics
  • raspberry0416
    "Why is it so important what Melania wears?"

    Because it shows how out of touch she is with the situation at hand.
  • OldS0ul
    They are going to ignore the fact she is wearing shades and it is definitely cloudy outside. Lol jk.
  • springocelot
    "She did change shoes once she got there..."

    yes, she wore sneakers once she got to Texas

      Changed on the plane.

    It doesn't look like anything special to me. Then again she's not anything special so who cares
  • lyannamormont
    I honestly dont give two shits to Trumps as a family, in fact I find americans a bit dumb to elect Donald however she, Melania, and Donald are there to show synpathy and support and help the people as what a president and his first lady should do in these hard times. I dont get why people make big deal out of her shoes. So she wears stilettos and so what? Would it be better if she didn't go to Texas at all so she saved you all from her stilettos? If she didn't go, this time they would criticize she didn't go visit people who suffer. what the actual fkin shite, really.
  • Browneye57
    You would think people would have more important things to worry about than what rich people wear. A total fail.
  • sjoes006
    I'm not blaming her but I've been there. Funerals in wetland for example in heels, not good. She changed shoes because she had to. At a funeral in those shoes you walk on the balls of your foot but that is like for 30 ft.

    Not blaming her, but they needed to show up in rainboots and hunting gear.

    Parts of the money rich areas of Houston are like quick sand.

    The rich parts are Devastated and will get by. The poor parts don't know what to do. As is the case with any city when hit by a bad mo fo.

    Houstons strong. Texas is strong. They have enoug money to pull together.
  • BeeNee
    People are ALWAYS critical of what a first lady wears. Unfortunately first ladies are still treated as show pieces for their husbands and are chastised even in today's world, for having thoughts about things. Michelle Obama was discussed literally everyday about her choice of outfit from head to toe and picked apart every single day, so just because we've changed presidents, did we literally think anything would just magically change? I wouldn't have frankly cared if she landed in those stilettos for the same reason you mention... it's about the recovery process and what can be done to get there for this country and this state to get to that point, not footwear, unless it's being donated to those in shelter.
    • Who remembers the pic of Michelle O with the boner in her dress.

  • cavmanier
    Well given most of the mainstream media always wants to focus on Trump in a negative way, they really couldn't find a way to validly criticize how he responded to the disaster so they insulted the first ladies shoes. And if that happened to Mrs. Obama, many feminists would realistically be outraged, but feminism is closely related to the progressive movement so of course they don't want to help their enemy.
    I'm just being honest.

    I agree with you though. Why should she have to change shoes? Don't lots of women say they want to wear what they want without criticism? That's actually on the feminist platform, yet no outrage from the progressive feminists? Of course not. She isn't Mrs. Obama.
  • deraz24
    I guess it look like she wasn't prepared to do anything so people looked at it like that
  • DonkeyRick69
    People need diversions from reality. Think about Every time what Michelle Obama made people were dying on mass In the back pages
  • UsernameMadness
    I think they look great, as do Mr. Trump's brogues. I assume they weren't planning to actually wade out into the floods. I think security would have something to say about that.
    • No wait, the brogues are the security guy, right? I forget Melania doesn't like to stand too close to hubby.

  • Pink2000
    Cause who the hell wears stilettos in a flood. It's messy and inconvenient.
