Donald Trump slammed for selling 'trashy' $399 shoes at Sneaker Con one day after $355,000,000 fine

The shoes have already sold out a Sneaker Con

So apparently Donald Trump is in the fashion business now.

'Fashion' might be a bit of a push, however, as some people have criticized the former POTUS' new $399 sneakers.

Trump, who is running for president once again, made a surprise appearance at the Philadelphia Sneaker Con yesterday (February 17), where he announced his new venture.

As you'd expect, the shoes are quite ostentatious.

The high-tops are bright gold and boast the American flag on one side, as well as a large 'T' on the other.

They also have red stripes and red and white soles.

They are being branded as the 'Never Surrender Hi-Tops' and will set you back a whopping $399 for a pair.

Trump's new website describes the sneakers as 'bold, gold, and tough, just like President Trump'.

Despite the hefty price tag, however, the shoes are said to have sold out at yesterday's event.

People have since had a lot to say about the sneakers, with some hailing the 'T' as for 'trashy'.

Someone penned on X (formerly Twitter): "Aaayyyooo, Trump is at Sneaker Con selling his Trump shoes for $399.00 …and they sold out!! This s… is wild!!"

Replying to the post, one person asked: "This is a parody, right?"

"T for Trashy," wrote another.

Speaking at the event, Trump expressed his hopes that his business will be a 'big success'.

"There's a lot of emotion in this room. This is something that I've been talking about for 12 years, 13 years. And I think it's going to be a big success," he told the crowd.

While some were excited to see the former POTUS, others were less enthused and criticized Sneaker Con for allowing Trump to attend.

This sparked the organization to issue a statement online.

It read: "Sneaker Con’s mission is to support and promote sneaker culture through our worldwide live events and digital platforms. We are thankful and appreciative of the sneaker community, and recognize individuals who generate awareness and authentic sneaker related engagement towards our community. #sneakercon."

UNILAD has contacted Trump's reps for comment.

The release of the shoes come shortly after Trump was fined a staggering $354 million in a civil law case earlier this week.

He was found guilty of intentionally committing financial fraud over the course of a decade.

Judge Arthur Engoron laid down the ruling on Friday (February 16) and also barred Trump 'from serving as an officer or director of any New York corporation or other legal entity in New York for a period of three years'.
