- A viral post on Facebook questioned the designer shoes Vice President Leni Robredo wore while visiting the typhoon-struck victims
- The shoes was allegedly worth $700 and was deemed to be impractical since she was walking in a muddy road
- Another viral post of hers was also being questioned for its sincerity
The Tsinelas (slippers) leadership has always been the trademark of the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo. He was a man known for wearing the traditional footwear in order to visit the remote areas of the country.
The same principle was adopted by his widow Leni Robredo who found herself as the second most powerful person in the country after the national elections.

However, some Filipinos were not convinced that Leni possessed the same values like her husband. In a viral Facebook post by the page GetRealPhilippines.com, the Vice President was questioned for her dubious choice of shoes.
According to the observation of the uploader, Leni was wearing a pair of shoes worth $700 during her visit to the typhoon-struck victims. The post also called it as one of the Vice President’s many photo opportunities to show off her deeds. The choice of footwear was also criticized since it can be seen that she needed to walk in a muddy road so a pair of boots would have been more appropriate.
The post has been shared for over 904 times and has garnered more than 1,700 likes already.
One user even recalled what was promised of Robredo’s leadership. He mentioned that government officials should be committed in keeping their feet on the ground instead of abusing the perks of their jobs.
Another concerned citizen even gave a suggestion on what should’ve been more practical during the situation. He recalled that during Typhoon Ondoy, the actress Angel Locsin even wore a swimsuit underneath her clothes in order to rescue people when needed.
This wasn’t the first time that Leni was questioned on the sincerity of her actions. The viral photo of her waiting for a bus back to her hometown was being questioned by netizens as well.
They pointed out that the photo seemed to be staged since if you’re familiar with the place then you would have known that provincial buses don’t pass that side of the road.
Meanwhile, here are the life rules of the elected president Rodrigo Duterte.
Robredo was previously criticized because of her numerous trips abroad and magazine covers.
