Ocasio-Cortez's first pair of campaign shoes to go on display

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) first pair of shoes she wore on the campaign trail will reportedly be featured in the Cornell Costume Collection’s upcoming exhibit.

CNN reported Tuesday that the 29-year-old’s shoes will be featured alongside items of clothing from other prominent female figures in an exhibit, titled "WOMEN EMPOWERED: Fashions from the Frontline,” that is scheduled to debut on Dec. 6.


The exhibit will also reportedly include collars from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a skirt from Janet Reno, a gown owned by suffrage activist Olivia Langdon and more.

Ocasio-Cortez shared a photo of her worn-out shoes in a picture on Twitter earlier this year.

"Here's my 1st pair of campaign shoes," Ocasio-Cortez wrote at the time. "I knocked doors until rainwater came through my soles. Respect the hustle. We won [because] we out-worked the competition. Period."

The Cornell Costume Collection also shared a photo of the shoes on Instagram, along with a caption stating Ocasio-Cortez’s “shoes represent the hard work, dedication, determination, and commitment of the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.”

“We can’t think of a better example of fashion from the frontline.”
