As vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris walked off the plane in Fresno, California to tour the wildfire devastation, she caused a stir on social media not for what she said, but rather, what she was wearing on her feet.

Harris stepped out in some Timberland boots that caused Twitter to debate whether the look was fitting of a vice-presidential hopeful. She had paired the look with a casual green jacket, white T-shirt, and skinny jeans, which seemed to create plenty of supporters and a number of detractors based on her appearance.

Some Twitter users were quick to point out that the boots might not actually be Timberlands after all, despite acknowledgment by other users on the social media site.

One Twitter user wrote about the possible knockoffs, “Those are NOT Timbs... Even if Timberland made those shoes i as a native NYer must repeat... THOSE ARE NOT TIMBS!..”

Another user criticized the boots as well saying, “Kamala was looking good in them Shoe Carnival timbs though.”

Still another Twitter user called Harris out on the boots, saying, “ just because the boots are timbs doesn't make licking them any better.”

Despite the criticism, Harris had several supporters of the footwear with one on Twitter user saying, “Watching how @KamalaHarris dresses for the campaign trail excites me. Knowing I can wear comfortable shoes and clothes removes a barrier for running for office. #Timbs

Yet another said, “Is she wearing Timbs on the campaign trail? And that swagger. The ultimate Cool Girl.”

Some even had a dig or two for the shoe choice of Vice President Mike Pence on the campaign trail. One Twitter user said, “Sure, Kamala is rocking the Timbs... but have you ever seen Mike Pence absolutely crush it in a pair of all white Rockports with the Easy-Comfort insole?”
