Michelle Obama Chooses Black Flats & Kitten Heels for Europe

At times, Michelle Obama’s fashion choices threatened to outshine the political purpose behind the Obamas’ recent diplomatic trip across Europe.  If you’ve been as pleasantly distracted by Ms. Obama’s fashion faceoff against the world’s post powerful divas as I have, you’ve probably noticed her sleek, subtle, comfortable footwear. I’m not alone in rejoicing that the First Lady is both fashionable and real.

Ms. Obama always looks elegant and comfortable, a rare combination.  I adore how she chooses pieces that express her personality.  I also admire her penchant for reusing pieces in different outfits– she’s certainly a smart packer.

Shoe-wise, she’s dedicated to flats.  Although her exact height isn’t widely know, Ms. Obama is at least 5’9″, making flats a natural choice.  Personally, I love kitten heels and flats for their comfort factor.  Although heels look great on nearly every woman, I cringe when I see ladies stumbling over their own skyscraper heels.  I love fashion, but I’m not about to hinder movement to meet designers’ demands.

Shoefly is introducing a flurry of new flats this spring, including the Biviel BV1992 shown above.  This exceptional “flat” offers a 2″ wedge with the same comfort and stability you’d expect from any flat. I love the simple sling back design and slightly punky touches, such as the silver-toned ridges on the strap.  This could be my new all-occasions black shoe.  Check out our flats section for more divinely comfortable designer shoes.
