Kamala Harris brought back one of her most beloved footwear styles for a visit to Salt Lake City this weekend.

The vice-presidential candidate joined former Utah Senator Scott Howell at the This Is the Place Monument on Saturday, learning about the site’s commemoration of the end of Mormon pioneers’ passage to Utah as well as the journeys of the early explorers of the West.

For the occasion, Harris opted for a twist on business casual style; the outfit teamed a printed blazer with a black top and skinny jeans as well as a matching monochromatic face mask.

The United States Senator then gave the outfit a more casual touch with her sneakers of choice. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette is one of the politician’s most beloved footwear styles. For this particular occasion, Harris opted for a low-top version of the classic sneakers in a relaxed black and white colorway. The style is known for its retro look with exposed stitching, textured outsole and contrasting toe cap, all accented with signature All Star logos and patches.

While Sen. Harris’ sneakers may resemble a normal Converse combination, the pair actually switches out the usual canvas uppers with smooth leather fabric, giving it a more glam appeal. The Chuck Taylor All Star Leather retails for $55 at Converse.com.

Converse has quickly become the Californian native’s most recognizable brand when it comes to shoes; they even went viral after the senator shared a video of herself exiting a plane in the sneakers with the caption, “Laced up and ready to win” in September.
