Sky News presenter Kay Burley led a string of fans to question whether she’d injured her foot after she appeared on air in trainers. With some arguing that it was an inappropriate decision for a broadcaster in the public eye, they debated the reason for her unusual clothing choice.
“Why is @KayBurley allowed to host her show in @SkyNews sneakers?” one fan of her breakfast show quizzed on Twitter.
“For the past few days, she’s [been] wearing white sneakers.”
The social media user commented that she looked unprofessional, but rationalised that “she might have hurt her foot”.
Another fan noted the difference between the smart outfits she is normally seen in, and her guise now.

“While I adore my sexy 6in-heel LK Bennett courts, I’d love a pair which make my working day less of a torture,” the presenter added to the Daily Mail.
“I’ve always found cushioned soles and round-toed shoes far too fuddy-duddy.”
