Generally, while traveling along the presidential campaign trail, politicians tend to stay dolled up in suits, heels, and perfectly polished Oxfords.

The Oakland, Calif. native was spotted wearing a pair of Timbs as she emerged from a private plane, and needless to say, fans had some serious opinions about her choice of footwear.

Let's face it: high heels are beyond uncomfortable, especially amid hours of air travel, so we were psyched to see the vice presidential candidate embracing some actually comfortable footwear while exiting the plane. This was seriously a statement we could all get behind.

Kamala's lace-up Timberland sneakers have really upped the democratic VP candidate's style game, and quite frankly, we almost didn't recognize her. And while she looked fabulous strutting off the plane, you could totally tell that her confidence was sky-high. We're obsessed.

Some might go so far to say that Kamala has technically re-defined "swagger" with these sweet sneaks, and TBH, we don't disagree. Somebody should alert ASAP... and also, we should probably just nix the "tradition" of wearing high heels altogether.

On the other hand, some were — um — less impressed with Kamala's new kicks.

As you may have noticed, Kamala's Timberlands are technically sneakers created by the popular work boot manufacturer. And while we aren't here to judge, some in the judgmental world of Twitter are throwing shade at the democratic VP candidate. See what they had to say about her statement sneaks, below.

OK, OK we get it... but honestly, Timbs sneakers are pretty cool, too.

Remember when you wanted a Juicy jacket for Christmas, but your mom got you an off-brand terry cloth zip-up from Walmart instead? That's how some feel about Kamala's shoe selection.

WOW, he really called them "boneless Timbs."

Like boneless hot wings, which aren't truly hot wings, many believe that these Timberland sneakers truly aren't what one would genuinely call Timberlands. Therefore, they've been deemed "boneless Timbs."

Regardless of how you feel about Kamala's footwear selection, we're glad she was comfortable on that flight. She has a long way to go for her campaign trail travels.
