Melania Trump changes her shoes after sparking backlash as she arrives in Texas

It looks like Melania Trump has heard the internet loud and clear.

Hours after sparking backlash on Tuesday morning for her choice in footwear while heading to Texas with President Trump, Melania landed in Corpus Christi with a noticeably different pair of shoes -- white sneakers.

The first lady paired her casual shoes with a crisp white button-down shirt with a black trousers that hit just above her ankles. She polished off her look with a pair of circular sunnies and a black hat with "FLOTUS" emblazoned on the front.

Her sneakers are a drastic change from the sky-high pair of stilettos she was rocking earlier in the day.

The former model's first look caused uproar on the internet, with many journalists calling her out for her choice of footwear as she visits a city submerged in floodwaters.


"God grant me the serenity not to comment on the shoes," POLITICO writer Ben White posted on Twitter.

Melania and President Trump were met by the state's governor Greg Abbott and other high-profile politicians upon landing. The Trumps will spend time in Corpus Christi and Austin during their trip in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
