THE PEOPLE’S CANDIDATE: Hillary Clinton Wore Shoes That Cost $775 on the Campaign Trail
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wore shoes that cost $775 while on the campaign trail on Wednesday while touring Des Moines, Iowa.
She arrived at the Raygun shirt store in Des Moines in hand-stitched rainbow striped calfskin shoes made by designer Salvatore Ferragamo, which can be purchased here on sale for $542.
Clinton was gifted a shirt that said “America: Hill Yes” as she touted her commitment to young entrepreneurs and small businesses at the event, according to ABC News.
These shoes cost more than the average American makes in a week. “According to the most recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the average yearly income of a person in the United States as of 2013 was $28,155, meaning that each American earns an average of $2,346.25 per month, or $586.56 weekly,” a previous Washington Free Beacon analysis states.
