First Lady Melania caused a firestorm on social media when she stepped off Air Force One in a pair of snakeskin high heels. Many felt her attire was inappropriate and insensitive to the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Others jumped to the defense of Melania, claiming her shoe choice was irrelevant and people should focus on more important issues.

It can be easy to dismiss fashion as trivial, but some argue Melania's attire speaks volumes to those she is visiting.

"While the nation is riveted by images of thousands of Texans wading with their possessions, their pets, their kids, in chest-high water, desperately seeking refuge; while a government official recommend that those who insist on sheltering in place write their names and social security numbers on their arms, Melania Trump is heading to visit them in footwear that is a challenge to walk in on dry land."

Despite the criticism, the first lady's communications director expressed disappointment in the media frenzy over Melania's outfit during a time of crisis.
"It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes."
