Photos of him and his wife Brigitte Macron wearing blue trainers have surfaced online, leading to a variety of reactions. While some said Macron’s choice of footwear was disrespectful, others were not bothered and said it is up to him what he wishes to wear.

One other wrote, “Without wanting to make controversy around Macron, for whom I voted, he has a duty to set an example. A president doesn’t wear sneakers when he arrives abroad for a Queen’s funeral. And this way of matching his sneakers to those of BM: ridiculous and not chic.”

One joked, “It depends man. If someone came to my funeral wearing Jordans I’d be pretty pleased.”

Others tried to halt the spread of disinformation. “He didn’t. They changed into formal attire before going to pay their respects,” they wrote.
