A Twitter user shared a screenshot to Harris, and replied with “Yes smh (shake my head).” She also said her husband dedicated a “whole suitcase” for his sneakers and only took them along because “it made him happy.,” according to a thread on her Twitter account.
The “Dior 1″ sneakers were a collaboration between fashion brands Dior and Air Jordan who released a limited amount of pairs sold at around $2,000 each, according to GQ Magazine.
