Trump's Commerce Secretary sports $600 slippers to President's address

By: Nick Cardona, Buzz60

When you're a member of President Trump's cabinet which happens to include a lot of billionaires, you likely show up to major presidential events in style.

That is just what newly confirmed Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who is worth 2.5 billion dollars, did Tuesday night at the President's address to Congress. Ross was spotted wearing a pair of custom-made Commerce logo velvet slippers to the speech.

Someone on Twitter captured the 79-year-old wearing the slippers and called it a "very cute old man thing to do."

The slippers are from the Palm Beach based store, Stubbs & Wootton. They can start at $495 and a custom pair can go for as much as $600. Ross was one of the President's earliest supporters during Trump's campaign for the White House.
