Liberal Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland is facing criticism for wearing high-priced designer sneakers while bringing the government’s affordability message to Canadians’ doors.

While canvassing for the Liberal candidate for the federal Toronto—St. Paul’s riding, Freeland wore a pair of Miu Miu sneakers. Although no longer in the catalogue, one website shows the original retail price for the “Nappa Leather Lace-up Sneakers In Black/white” as between $740 and $1210 before taxes.

Previous photos show Freeland wearing the same type of shoes as far back as 2021.Miu Miu is an Italian high fashion brand owned by Prada. Freeland posted a picture of herself wearing the sneakers at a weekend canvassing event for Liberal candidate Leslie Church.
