Read Kamala Harris: what her sneakers mean by Priya Elan (the Guardian)
As a woman of colour wearing sneakers on the campaign, it semaphores a change in political dress and much more
On the value of a sneaker… The shoes become a symbol of Harris’ political philosophy in an incredibly approachable way.

Part of what I love about this article is that it could potentially have been written about a male candidate. It’s not sexualized as heavily as an article about her beauty (or lack thereof), her hair, her clothing, etc. We’re apparently making a little progress. Still, I’d much rather read material about the candidate’s positions and direct policies.
