Melania Trump made a surprise trip to Iraq on Wednesday with her husband President Donald Trump to meet with American troops stationed at Al Asad Air Base.

For the visit, which was unscheduled, Melania broke first lady precedent by travelling to an active combat zone. To take selfies with soldiers and speak military members, FLOTUS wore a suede mustard belted blouse with dark green trousers.

It’s Melania’s shoe choice that really stood out though.

The Timberland boots are being called an ‘out of touch’ style selection by some on Twitter – yet another example of the ‘tone-deaf’ First Lady being criticised for her fashion choices.

One person even suggested that putting on Timberlands was a last-ditch effort by FLOTUS after getting critiqued for her other shoe choices — including the infamous “storm stilettos.”

However, it wouldn’t be the first time that Melania wore a pair of the brand’s boots, and similarly got mocked for them.
