Perhaps the most widespread shoe topic was this one: Melania wore black stilettos to visit victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas following the disaster in August 2017. Twitter commenters called out her insensitivity, since she was on her way to see families who lost all of their belongings in the storm.
Later, Manolo Blahnik weighed in on the issue, saying, "I don't think she's insensitive. I think she's working non-stop to make it work — possibly she was just wearing the shoes she left New York in. Yes, I think probably she could have worn Hunter boots but she was wearing what she was wearing."
